Addy the Sergeant

Addy the Sergeant

November 30th, 2014

All the elderly veterans that I have met at my job have been male and this shouldn’t be a surprise.  After five years, I finally got to meet an elderly woman who was once a Sergeant Chief.  I found this extraordinary since back then only males joined the army, navy, and air-force.  Even though, she […]


Four Hidden Gems on Loyola’s Website

Four Hidden Gems on Loyola’s Website

November 30th, 2014

Schedule Builder Several weeks ago, during the spring course registration period, a wonderful peer advisor told me about an editable schedule builder that features a built-in table that automatically displays separated blocks for class times. Offered in both Word and PDF format, this document comes in handy when scheduling classes and various activities of a […]


The Long Road Home

November 30th, 2014

This weekend, I was stuck in a car with my best friend for a combined total of 24 hours.  Stuck might not be the right word, but when you’re driving for 12 hours straight, you start to feel that way. Since many Ramblers are making it home for the holidays (just two weeks away!) and some […]


Fast Delivery Food for Finals

November 30th, 2014

Who else gets super hungry when studying?  The worst type of hungry is the 2-am-studying-for-finals hungry.  Damen and Simpson are closed and so are the cafes around campus.  Star Grill is a walk, and it’s probably not a good idea to be walking outside at that time anyway.  Your only choice is to order food, […]


Grateful for this City, Grateful for this School

Grateful for this City, Grateful for this School

November 29th, 2014

Thanksgiving is quite obviously a time to give thanks. I could go on and on about all the things I am grateful for, but I wanted to give a little extra thanks to the city and school I’ve come to know and love over the past year. CHICAGO, Thank you for: The skyline. It always […]


When My Grandma Comes to Visit

When My Grandma Comes to Visit

November 28th, 2014

My grandma lived in Chicago for part of her childhood before moving to rural Illinois. The phrase, “You can take the girl out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the girl,” describes her perfectly. So when she comes to visit me in Chicago you better bet that means we do […]


Seeing some more birds!

November 28th, 2014

Hello everyone! So I know it has been a while since I have written, but finals are just around the corner and there are so many group projects, papers, and studying to do. It is overwhelming sometimes, but it nice just to sit back and take a break and write a few words to you […]


No Turkeys were Harmed in the Creation of this Post

November 27th, 2014

Happy thanksgiving y’all! I’m writing this from somewhere in Georgia, full on a thanksgiving feast and homemade cheesecake for dessert. Since Ramblers have only had two days of schools this week in honor of Thanksgiving break, I’ll dedicate this post to the holiday BEFORE the most wonderful time of the year. My best friend and […]


Getting in the Holiday Spirit

Getting in the Holiday Spirit

November 27th, 2014

As Millennium Park opens its ice skating rink and Loyola begins decorating the campus with garland, big red bows, and Christmas trees, I begin to feel the holiday excitement. In addition, the annual Magnificent Mile Lights Festival, “the nation’s largest evening holiday celebration,” began its 2014 season last Saturday, November 22. Since this was my […]


A great way to give back…

November 26th, 2014

In T-minus 3 hours, Thanksgiving Day will be here.  This beautiful holiday is a great reminder for all of us.  However, this shouldn’t be the only day that you should be thankful for everything you’ve done, accomplished, and/or seen.  Every day should be Thanksgiving Day, but sometimes we get so caught in our “busy lives” […]
