The President’s Ball!

November 21st, 2014

by Foram Patel

I’m back to share another amazing Loyola Experience with you today! Last weekend I went to Loyola’s President’s Ball! The President’s Ball is basically a celebration of the winners of the President’s Medallion! I’ve never gone to this event before, but this year I was ready to give it a try! The event was pretty cool […]

Mastering the Trains: Amtrak and Metra Edition

November 20th, 2014

by Laura Swanson

As college students in the city, public transportation has become our best friend. Obviously the easy access to trains and buses is a huge benefit for all of us living here, but before you get the hang of it all you’ve got some learning to do. The CTA will get you anywhere you need to go […]

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday

November 20th, 2014

by Jace Sheu

With less than a week to go before Thanksgiving and not even a month remaining until the winter break, this feels like the perfect time to reflect on my first semester in college, before studying for exams takes over my life. I find it pretty amazing that what started as a nudging self-reminder to count […]

Benefits of Being a Loyola Student

November 20th, 2014

by Christopher Lam

Here at Loyola, students have the privilege of getting more than just a regular college education; they have membership to different places like facilities and get discounts at different stores. Using the school ID is essential to access these privileges as it is the key way to validate to a person that you are a […]

Food Adventures!

Food Adventures!

November 19th, 2014

by Foram Patel

This semester, more than any other, I have gone on so many different food adventures around the city—and I have absolutely loved it. This past weekend, I went to a super cool new pizza place called Blaze Pizza! If you’re from the West coast, you may have heard of this place, and if you’re not—well […]

Tips For Keeping Warm This Winter

November 19th, 2014

by Natalie Pantelis

If you know anything about Chicago winters, then you know it can get pretty cold and snowy in the city during the months of November through March. Although I’m not from Chicago, Michigan can get pretty cold during these months as well, as does any northern state! In this blog, I will be sharing my […]

GRE Greatness

GRE Greatness

November 19th, 2014

by Stephanie Rodriguez

I am NOT trying to scare you.  I know that many people detest talking about “the future plans.”  Are you applying to medical school?  Did you take the GRE?  What about the subject GRE?  What grad school are you going to?  So, what are you doing after graduation?  Did you ask for your recommendation letters?  […]

Skydiving at iFLY!

Skydiving at iFLY!

November 18th, 2014

by Therese Bennett

Hello again! In continuing my trend of discussing fun things to do, I am going to tell you all of a fun experience a little outside of Chicago. Ever wanted to skydive without paying around 300 dollars? Ever wanted to experience the feeling of free-fall? Ever just wanted to be suspended in the air and […]

Millennium Skates

November 18th, 2014

by Samantha Eddmeiri

Since we’ve officially had our first snow of the year, (although realistically that was Halloween) it is beginning to feel more and more like the holidays every day. Although I am a Muslim and don’t officially observe any of the major winter holidays, I still get super excited for them each year. It’s a time […]

Only 13 Days Left!

November 18th, 2014

by Lindsy Fagerstrom

  13 days or 312 hours or 18,720 minutes or 1,123,200 seconds… until our priority deadline: December 1st! That means you better request your transcripts, test scores (ACT or SAT), and letters of recommendation right away so schools, counselors, teachers, and testing agencies have time to send it all over to Loyola before our postmark deadline. Also make […]
