    Chicago Life and Loyola Love

If you have ever been to Hawaii, you know that Hawaiians have a unique culture all their own. The spirit of “Aloha” (which means affection, peace, compassion, and mercy) greets you when you board a plane to the islands and holds on to you long after. At Loyola, we recently took some inspiration from the […]


See Ya Later Chicago!

See Ya Later Chicago!

December 16th, 2011

I’ve always felt going home for any extended amount of  time is bittersweet.  Don’t get me wrong.  I am so incredibly excited to be finished with yet another semester and just spend time with my family.  But as a student at Loyola, you make a home, and in a sense, you develop a family with […]


A Day at The Shedd

A Day at The Shedd

December 16th, 2011

On Wednesday, everyone on campus had a study day.  No one had finals unless they had a Wednesday night class. My friend and I, basically done with finals (okay, we may have been procrastinating studying for our last one..), decided to take a much needed break at The Shedd Aquarium.  We both hadn’t been there […]


The Wise Words of Gandalf the Grey

The Wise Words of Gandalf the Grey

December 16th, 2011

Around this time of year, every other status, tweet, text or overheard conversation seems to be about one thing and one thing only: finals. This blog post won’t be any different. The other night, as I was studying for my anatomy and physiology final, I experienced a moment of panic. It seemed as though the pile of information that I had to […]


Sweet Potato Pie

December 15th, 2011

If you love sweet potatoes, a smile was just brought to your face. If not, bear with me. Specialty dishes and desserts made during this time of year bring happiness to everyone. They also force us to make New Years’ resolutions for our new diet and exercise plan. But for now, forget what I just […]


Free Food for Finals

Free Food for Finals

December 14th, 2011

So now that finals week is under way, there is a tradition at Loyola to give out as much free food to the students as possible.  This is probably to encourage and remind students to eat between all that studying.  Monday night, my friends and I enjoyed a slice of Connie’s Pizza at Water Tower […]


Best Places To Study Around Campus

December 13th, 2011

It’s finals week! Which means that the library is extra packed and it can be hard to find a good place to study. Here are a few good alternatives to the library: 1. An empty classroom. Loyola leaves the classrooms unlocked until about 11:30ish at night. So as long as it is after normal class […]


Soupbox

Soupbox

December 12th, 2011

So, as a “Congratulations Nic, you made it through your New Media and Communications class” some classmates and I celebrated our success at a nearby restuarant called Soupbox.  Tucked away on N. Broadway, this urban hotspot serves the finest soup in town.  Though a little on the pricey side (around $9 for a bread bowl), […]


Chicago Winter

Chicago Winter

December 11th, 2011

There are many reasons I love Chicago but at the top of the list is winter. This is especially true just before Christmas. Here is a list of all the things I have done over the past month and everything I look forward every year. 1. Ice Skating: Always a fun thing to do, especially, […]


Best Winter Dates

Best Winter Dates

December 11th, 2011

It is that time of year. Lights fill the streets, trees are found in the windows, snow is starting to fall and it is time to take a girl on the best possible date ever. I’ve noticed that winter offers the best possible dates available. Let’s not kid ourselves, a dinner and a movie date […]
