What We Take for Granted

February 25th, 2012

It’s Saturday night and I need to come up with two posts before the end of the week. The Undergraduate Admissions Office does not have any particular interest in what I write about, as long as what I write is quality and useful. This is great because I have plenty of freedom to say whatever […]


Gala di San Valentino

Gala di San Valentino

February 25th, 2012

At 7:30 PM on Friday February 24th, over 500 Loyolans entered the elegant ballroom of the downtown Drake Hotel.  Donning dazzling dresses and spiffy suits, Ramblers danced the night away in an evening to remember. One of the perks of being a student at Loyola is having over 200 student-run clubs to get involved with. […]


Loyola 4 Chicago

February 24th, 2012

This semester I have been lucky enough to volunteer as a tutor each week at a Jesuit school in Chicago! The organization that has made this possible is Loyola 4 Chicago. Loyola 4 Chicago is a program in Loyola’s Center for Community Service and Action, that provides opportunities for students to work with nearby communities […]


Another Reason to Shop at H&M

Another Reason to Shop at H&M

February 23rd, 2012

I’ve been super busy as of late, especially with upcoming midterms and papers.  All this chaos calls for some stress free activities– like shopping!  Weeknights are optimal for retail therapy as there aren’t as many shoppers out and about.  The weekend can get absolutely crazy and it really detracts from experience. Tonight I dropped in […]


Talk of the Weather

Talk of the Weather

February 23rd, 2012

Chicago weather has certainly been weird lately. Last fall, rumors were flying that this winter would be one of the harshest in Chicago history, which got everybody expecting the worst following last February’s Snowpocalypse. But we’ve had such a mild winter– we’ve been spoiled by 40-50 degree temperatures, mostly sunny skies and almost no snowfall […]


Karaoke Night

Karaoke Night

February 23rd, 2012

Last Monday, we had karaoke night here at the Rome Center.  In the basement of the dorm building (well, the only building- classrooms, offices and dorm rooms are all in one big building) the Student Life Assistants set up a stage with microphones so we could all sing our hearts out.  I was nervous for […]


Mardi Gras is over. What was your best throw?

February 22nd, 2012

This time of year, we hear stories of Carnival from all over the world. As I enjoyed a piece of king cake yesterday, I started to think about the many parades and various celebrations going on leading up to Fat Tuesday. If you haven’t been to a Mardi Gras parade before, you would find that […]


Argyle Eateries

Argyle Eateries

February 22nd, 2012

One thing that I really appreciate about Chicago, especially the Rogers Park area, is the diverse cultures that one can learn from. A way that I like to learn about people’s culture is through the food. Off of the Argyle el stop are many Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants that are authentic and affordable (and delicious). […]

February 22nd, 2012

Time has been both dragging on and speeding by. I am grateful it is already Wednesday and am looking forward to heading home for spring break in a week and a half. There is so much to be done before then though! This is midterm season, which means it’s prime time for professors to schedule […]


The Great Bambi

The Great Bambi

February 22nd, 2012

As I type up this blog, I have just returned from a five hour study fest at the IC. Today has been the textbook definition of a “long day.” I have been awake since my first class at 8:05 am and haven’t been back into my dorm room until now (it happens to be 2:00 […]
