The Power Nap Champ

The Power Nap Champ

January 31st, 2012

We’ve all been guilty of it. As we sit, slouched over, in our last class of the day, eyes barely open, head falling backward, we think to ourselves, “If I can just make it through this ONE class…” Finally, class dismissed, we stumble back to our rooms and collapse into our beds with the noble […]


January 31

January 31

January 31st, 2012

What do you think of when you think January 31 in Chicago? I generally picture snow, ice, cold and more snow. Well it’s January 31 and we have zero snow, zero ice and zero cold. In fact, it is 56 degrees! Walking to class today in this weather gave me spring fever and made it […]


Mass and Dining

Mass and Dining

January 31st, 2012

This past Wednesday, Loyola planned and paid for a great dinner in downtown Rome in addition to a mass held in the most beautiful church I’ve ever seen.  It was optional, but it was great to see that many people decided to go.  Since the campus only has about two hundred students, we are all […]


I Believe That We Will Win

January 29th, 2012

In 1963 Loyola University Chicago became the first and last school in Illinois to win a NCAA Basketball Championship. Although we were once a formidable foe in the nation, our status has declined slightly. We’re in an interesting position as we are rebuilding our team and revamping all athletics at Loyola. The problem I am faced with […]


You Can Ski In Wisconsin?

You Can Ski In Wisconsin?

January 29th, 2012

This was the first year that I was unable to go skiing while I was at home over winter break. Outside the fact that there is simply no snow this year, I spent my break in Panama. Upon arriving back at school I was informed about another trip that was hosted by Loyola. A day […]


Tivoli

Tivoli

January 27th, 2012

Loyola planned another great orientation activity last Sunday.  It was a day trip to a small town in the mountains of Italy called Tivoli.  While in Tivoli, we visited a pope’s summer home and had time to explore the city. The pope’s summer home was probably the most beautiful thing I’ve seen so far.  The […]


An Unexpected Visit From My Cousin

January 27th, 2012

Sometimes being in Chicago has great benefits. One that I just recently realized (it has always been true, I just did not quite see the value of it until recently) was that because it is such a popular travel destination, you are more likely to be visited by friends and family. That was certainly the […]


Gifts On A College Budget

Gifts On A College Budget

January 27th, 2012

The holidays are over but it seems January is birthday season in my life. One problem, I’m broke! Being in college can mean being on a tight time schedule and having little time to work and make money. This all too often leads me to have an empty wallet. What does this all mean? It’s […]


Google Me

January 27th, 2012

Ok, when you Google me, you’ll probably see these blog entries. But, you’ll also see other articles from various news sites and blogs.  Being a journalism major can be pretty awesome, especially once you see your work published.  Of course,  being published can simply mean writing on a blog.  Nonetheless, I have had my work in a print […]


In Loving Memory

In Loving Memory

January 26th, 2012

If there’s one thing I’ve been taught over the past year and a half I’ve been away at school, it’s that life is so precious. Every day is a gift and you can never take one second for granted. I read this great article in the Phoenix, Loyola’s student newspaper, about a student my age […]
