Kicking off the New College Year:  Convocation 2012

Kicking off the New College Year: Convocation 2012

August 31st, 2012

Campus is buzzing. Move-in finally finished last weekend and classes began on Monday, August 27. In the midst of students trying to get their rooms set up, they found themselves in a flurry of activity. Welcome Week packs in a ton of activities with everything from family picnics, multiple welcoming receptions, walk-in advising hours, a […]


We’re Back In Session

August 28th, 2012

School has officially begun, and the buildings are crawling with students- we are taking over Loyola again! I just got out of my new Literature class (30 minutes early), and I’m pretty sure almost the entire class is freshmen. Oh well, I need my other literary knowledge credit. I’m waiting for my new Theater class […]


It’s That Time of Year Again

It’s That Time of Year Again

August 24th, 2012

August is coming to an end. The warmth that has enveloped Chicago the last couple months will flee and we will return those cold winters the city is famous for. While summer turning to fall means colder weather, it also means travel season is approaching for admission counselors around the world. Travel season is when admission counselors […]


Last Week of Summer!

August 23rd, 2012

So this week is the week when all the freshmen are moving in, so as I walked to work this morning, I got to witness many eager new students with their parents unloading their cars to move into their dorm rooms. Their expressions got me thinking about what I was like as an incoming freshman […]


Ready, Set, Go: The College Application Process Begins

August 23rd, 2012

It’s August of your senior year in high school. You just started school (or are likely to shortly) and the conversation is buzzing about what you did this summer and what colleges you will be applying to for next fall. Some of your friends may have already submitted college applications. I wanted to take a […]


Applicant > Student > Alumna > Staff

Applicant > Student > Alumna > Staff

August 20th, 2012

The title of this post sums up my Loyola experience, and I have to say, I’ve loved every second of it. It’s true, I even loved Loyola’s application process. I appreciated that there was NO application fee, that I didn’t have to answer some crazy question for my writing sample, and that the application was […]


AHH. I’M NOT READY.

AHH. I’M NOT READY.

August 18th, 2012

My junior year at Loyola starts in 10 days. As the title to this blog post clearly states – I’m not ready, at all. Between working all the time and moving out, this summer has flown by. I still have so much to do in the upcoming week – I still need to buy my […]


What’s Up World?!

What’s Up World?!

August 17th, 2012

Hello! My name is Alex Benson and I’m an undergraduate admission counselor here at Loyola. I’ll be blogging through out the year, so I thought I’d take some time to tell a little about myself. I’m originally come from the great state of California. Specifically, Sacramento. I came to Loyola a couple years ago to attend the university. […]


Back to School

August 15th, 2012

It’s that time of year again—when we see lots of flyers delivered to mailboxes with ads for school supplies and TV commercials with great sales on clothing for school-bound kids. I remember August as the time when my family was in a mad rush to get the last vacation in while rushing to get everything […]


School’s (Almost) In For the Fall!

School’s (Almost) In For the Fall!

August 9th, 2012

I have been lacking incredibly in the blog department these last few weeks, shame on me. But I am back now with… well, not too much to blog about. YET. These past few weeks have been calm as I wait for school to approach, which, by the way, classes begin in two and a half […]
