Such a ‘Bler: The Write Place | Ireland’s Poetry Open Mic

Such a ‘Bler: The Write Place | Ireland’s Poetry Open Mic

November 13th, 2018

by Ha (Millie) Le

As of last semester, I am a Creative Writing Minor, and it’s been a while since I’ve read my poetry aloud. Since coming to Loyola, I’ve been in search for a space for poetry, spoken poetry to be specific. Diminuendo Literary & Arts Magazine and MeToo Monologues have filled parts of this desire, but not […]

I came to Loyola more than a year ago, not knowing what was in store for me. I had visited campus only once before Orientation, and this would be my first time studying abroad and living on my own. But I was still very excited about meeting new people and starting my academic formation in […]

Disclaimer: The above photo was taken on the first snow day of 2017. Perhaps the snow is one of my top favourite parts about going to a university in Chicago. I know from interactions that I am definitely one of the few who will confidently say this, and that I moved to Chicago mainly for […]

Remembering the Kristallnacht at Loyola

Remembering the Kristallnacht at Loyola

To be honest with you, one of my main hesitations about going to Loyola at first was that it’s a Jesuit university, and I’m not religious. But it’s been really great, these past four years, to see that Loyola is not just a Catholic university but one that thinks about the diversity of its students. […]

Class Registration? How does it work?

Class Registration? How does it work?

November 8th, 2018

by Jessica Xi

It’s registration week at Loyola, which means a week of people panicking and being relieved in turns, of ducking out of classes for about two minutes to wait and wait for their requests to go through, and of arranging and re-arranging schedules, over and over again. My mom likes to remind me she had to […]
