Hello, Dalai!

April 27th, 2012

So if you’ve been to the LUC homepage, or really any site that has anything to do with Loyola, then you are well aware of the fact that Loyola  hosted the Dalai Lama reccently.  Yesterday, on top of the fact that it was my very last day of classes of my undergrad career, I got […]


Batman Band-aids Solve Everything

Batman Band-aids Solve Everything

April 27th, 2012

Earlier this week, I made the spontaneous decision to give up diet soda. We’re on the precipice of finals week, so I still needed to stay awake well into the night. In order to accomplish this, I switched to drinking caffeinated tea. So, for a few days, I essentially became a compulsive tea drinker. On Monday night, […]


Enjoying My Residence Hall For One More Week

Enjoying My Residence Hall For One More Week

April 27th, 2012

This year I was assigned to Fordham Hall with the same roommate from my freshman year. We lived on the 12th floor with a great view of the city! We always enjoyed watching the sun rise and watching the sun set on clear days. The hues of the sky relax us from our stressful days […]


Block Par-tay

Block Par-tay

April 25th, 2012

Twice a year, or each semester, the school holds a block party for the Water Tower Campus. They shut down the intersection of Wabash and Pearson.  It’s pretty great.  Normally, they grill out, have dessert, have a band and some promotional stuff.  This semester, however, they really came through with great vendors.  Along the sidewalks […]


As The Semester Comes To An End…

April 25th, 2012

I truly cannot believe that my sophomore year is virtually over! I cannot wait for finals to come and go, but I anticipate continuing to find my calling and my way with the time I have left at Loyola University Chicago. I now will be advised through the School of Communication, so I can have […]


I Can No Longer Eat Granola Bars

April 24th, 2012

It’s the last week of class.  For me, I only have one full day of classes left, and that will be cut short due to the fact that I’m going to see the Dalai Lama (post to follow). But why, you ask, can I no longer eat granola bars?  I will tell you. Most mornings, […]


Weekend of Excellence Re-Cap

Weekend of Excellence Re-Cap

April 23rd, 2012

This past weekend was the first time I have attended the Weekend of Excellence. The many awards ceremonies and celebrations that Loyola University Chicago holds recognizes students that have been active leaders on our campus. I was fortunate to be nominated for the Emerging Leader Award at the Diversity Awards hosted by the department of […]


10 Hikes To Do Before You Die

10 Hikes To Do Before You Die

April 23rd, 2012

Being that I will have a year off between Dental school and Loyola I have put a lot of thought into the things I want to cross off my bucket list thatyear. And being that I am a poor college student in love with nature, I think my time might be best used in the […]


“Studying”

“Studying”

April 22nd, 2012

In my experience, studying with friends yields the best results as far as actually getting stuff done.  But, I usually have a blast, which makes up for the fact that I still have a lot to do. Here is what usually happens. First you gather with friends in a lounge.  Then you casually play some […]


Reason I Love Chicago #3: Celebrity Sightings

Reason I Love Chicago #3: Celebrity Sightings

April 22nd, 2012

I’ve lived downtown in Loyola’s Baumhart residence hall for almost nine months now. I have loved being on the Water Tower Campus right in the heart of the best city in the world. There are always glamorous people around and fun things going on downtown. Yesterday, however, I had my first celebrity siting EVER– some […]
