Plan Ahead with J-Term

September 28th, 2016

  Something quite unique at Loyola is the J-term. What is the J-term? January term is an condensed, intensive, two-week session. Courses are available online, on campus, and abroad to give you a variety of options to make the most out of your winter break. Get ahead and graduate early as J-term is one of […]

Mid-Autumn Festival

Mid-Autumn Festival

September 28th, 2016

by Christopher Lam

If you are in Chicago, you can definitely feel the change in season right now. Especially around the first and second week of September, the cool breeze swept in and sweaters were brought out to wear. My instincts told me otherwise through seasonal allergies- yes, I am sick. With the changing of the season, the […]

Loans and Scholarships

Loans and Scholarships

September 21st, 2016

by Christopher Lam

I know that Halloween is a month away, and I don’t mean to scare anyone just yet about the topic of “loans.” When I first started hearing that word and understanding what it was, I got a negative impression out of it, especially when people emphasized that they still owe money after years and years.

“I Should Probably Study Since I Have An Exam This Week…” – Rambler

“I Should Probably Study Since I Have An Exam This Week…” – Rambler

September 19th, 2016

You casually come back to class after a relaxing weekend and remember you had some exams this week. I think its best if you studied… but what is studying without a beautiful view and concentration? Its so important to know that the Information Commons Center is not the ONLY place to study. It will most […]

To Job or Not To Job

To Job or Not To Job

September 18th, 2016

  Loyola can sometimes seem to have a reputation as being a posh private university, and while it’s true, we are a private university, not all of us have super “posh” backgrounds. Finances are a real issue that most Loyola students deal with everyday whether they talk about it or not. So when is the […]

Calling All Commuters!

Calling All Commuters!

September 14th, 2016

Commuter life is a world of its own. If there’s one major difference between Loyola students, it’s if you are a commuter or you dorm on-campus; our [commuter] lives are quite unique and different.   Unlike the dorming student, we travel, sometimes from afar, every single day via different methods of transportation. Train, bus, car […]

Loyola University Chicago has been named the greenest colleges in America by the Sierra Club! How exciting that this is the second time in three years!

Baby I’m Back!

Baby I’m Back!

This time last year I was scared and truthfully pretty unsure about whether I had made the right decision in coming to Loyola. A year later I’m sitting here writing to you and loving my life. It’s crazy how different things are already as a sophomore, I couldn’t wait to come back this year and […]

Revisiting Summer

Revisiting Summer

September 7th, 2016

by Christopher Lam

After [spring] finals week, I always fathom about what kind of summer I am going to have, what am I going to do, am I going to be productive…the list is endless. As a native Chicagoan, you would think that I would roam the streets of the Magnificent Mile or take a typical touristy picture […]

What’s Cookin’ Ramblers?

What’s Cookin’ Ramblers?

September 7th, 2016

by Husna Afzal

For many of you, this may be your first year; for others, it may just be another long semester. Because we all know “syllabus week” doesn’t exist at Loyola, we need a break from these crazy days! I don’t know about you guys, but my resort is usually food. During my first year at Loyola, […]
