Enjoying the Weather

Enjoying the Weather

I had a nice surprise for Valentine’s Day-warm weather! I know it seems strange that I would post that right after writing a whole entry called “Snow!”, but that’s the Midwest for you-arctic conditions one day, and a tropical breeze the next.

My friends and I took advantage of the nice day by taking a walk along the Lakeshore Path right along the water, which is only about a mile away from campus (to be honest, I was supposed to be running, but I gave that up pretty quickly). What I love about Loyola that I felt was unique to our school is the opportunity to go between two different worlds. Our Lakeshore campus in Roger’s Park is in an urban environment, with complete and easy access to the city of Chicago, but its nice to have the Loyola bubble to escape from the crazy rush every once in a while. You get the stunning architecture of Chicago and the natural beauty of Lake Michigan. Most urban campuses I visited gave up the natural beauty for the city environment-here, I don’t feel like that is the case.

I hope everyone had a good Valentine’s Day!
