Celebrity Sightseeing

Celebrity Sightseeing

March 31st, 2012

Living downtown affords many opportunities, especially celebrity sightseeing.  Today was the third time I’ve seen E! host Giuliana Rancic, (also from Fashion Police) wandering about the Water Tower area.  She was with her husband Bill, who went to Loyola.  He was the first winner of the show The Apprentice. Once, I saw The Edge and […]


Mass At Loyola

March 31st, 2012

I come from a Catholic family and while growing up I usually only went to mass when my mom would force me to wake up on Sunday mornings to go with her. As I grew up and entered my junior year of high school, she began to let me choose whether or not I wanted […]


Office Hours

March 31st, 2012

Yesterday I dropped in to see one of my favorite professors at the School of Communication, “Admiral” Ralph Braseth.  Making lasting connections with professors is important for a number of reasons.  You will eventually need references, letters of recommendation, or they will have connections that might not be able to make on your own.  Part […]


Election Reflection

Election Reflection

March 31st, 2012

In the shadow of the presidential primaries, Loyola has been having its own elections. Earlier in the week, the Unified Student Government Association (USGA) held its spring elections, which, among other things, elected the student body president for next year. To be honest, I don’t remember last year’s election. In fact, I don’t even think […]

Click here to see the fun! - Triple S Show Performance On Thursday, the dance group that I choreograph for, AfroDescent, had the opportunity to perform for the Multicultural Greek Council’s Triple S Show. The “s” in Triple S stands for step, stroll and salute, three elements that are very important in multicultural Greek life. The […]

March 29th, 2012

This past weekend, Loyola’s Lake Shore and Water Tower Campuses welcomed admitted students and their families for our annual spring event—Loyola Weekend. In total, there were approximately 1,200 students and more than 2,200 parents and guests. Loyola faculty, staff, administrators, and students were also on hand to help with campus and residence hall tours, financial […]


One More Month

One More Month

March 28th, 2012

While looking at my calendar, I saw that I had marked on this day, March 28th, “One month to go :(”.  I can’t believe I only have one month left here in Rome! Time has flown by and I have enjoyed every single minute of my time exploring Europe. I will be very sad to […]


Off-Campus Living Seminar

Off-Campus Living Seminar

March 28th, 2012

As a Sophomore moving off campus next year, finding an apartment is turning out to be a much harder and more complicated process than I expected. Lucky for me, Loyola offers off-campus living seminars. At these seminars, the office of Off Campus Living, go into detail about the steps to take and helpful tips about […]


The Hunger Games from a College Perspective

The Hunger Games from a College Perspective

March 28th, 2012

(from this site.) This will be a quick post, but I just had to share a thought that occurred to me: pretty much everything you experience during your 4 years at college will be influenced by the fact that you are in college. You are in a unique environment with a very specific subset of […]


How Semesters at Loyola Work

March 27th, 2012

Now that we’re into the 3rd out of what I would say are 4 parts of the semester, I think I’ll give a breakdown of how I’ve noticed all the parts of the semesters generally trend: 1. I think the first part of every semester is, in general, a “get to know you” section where […]
