Giving Thanks For LUC

November 29th, 2015

I feel bad for Thanksgiving. This perfectly good holiday has become overshadowed by the upcoming Christmas season. Rather than serving as a pause and time to give thanks with our loved ones it has become the perfect long weekend to get the best deals on the perfect presents and set up the Christmas tree. I’ll […]


Countdown time again. 10, 9, 8, 7…

Countdown time again. 10, 9, 8, 7…

November 28th, 2015

Can you believe that there is only one week of classes left, with final exams looming, then the semester is over? Where did the time go? It seems as though it was just August yesterday. If you’re like me, you’re undergoing a somewhat turbo-charged version of the kind of healthy reflection Loyola instills, except in […]


You are very Fortunate…

You are very Fortunate…

November 23rd, 2015

I cannot express how fortunate I am to be able to live life the way I do. I may not live a luxurious and stress-free lifestyle, but I have the basic necessities and more that many others cannot afford to have. Especially at Loyola where students come from fairly stable families, people such as myself […]


Find Your Identity

Find Your Identity

November 16th, 2015

College is the best place to find out who you are. Somehow in your 4 years in college, you will find out where you fit in the realm of society, you will understand yourself better, and you will be more confident about yourself. Maturity will kick in sooner or later as you become more independent […]


Learning Loyola’s Lingo

Learning Loyola’s Lingo

November 15th, 2015

In the same way that you’ll never understand the language in a foreign country you’ve never studied, you’ll never understand the ins-and-outs of Loyola without brushing up on the lingo. So to get you prepared for campus I’ll give you a quick LUC dictionary:   Ramblers (ram-B-lur-z) mascot 1. Loyola’s mascot, represented by LU Wolf, […]


My Strengths. My Quest. My Happiness.

My Strengths. My Quest. My Happiness.

November 14th, 2015

Growing up, I had a plan. At a young age, I had conjured a future that was bright and elaborately decorated with success. Everything seemed so simple, I plain forgot that rarely anything in real life goes according to plan. As a logistical thinker with a penchant for planning and a love of Post-It notes, […]


Being a First Generation Student

Being a First Generation Student

November 9th, 2015

Without a doubt, being a first generation student can be challenging, scary, and intimidating. For me, my family was not able to help me much in terms of college advice, connections, and understanding the concept of “college life.”  I had to be independent. I had to figure things out for myself. I had to learn […]


College Prom i.e. President’s Ball

College Prom i.e. President’s Ball

November 8th, 2015

When high school ends, so does the hype around school dances. There aren’t a few set nights a year when the school hosts a dance and everyone buys a new dress, gets their hair done, and takes a date out for a night on the town. I absolutely loved getting dressed up with all of […]


Full-time Everything, All the Time

Full-time Everything, All the Time

November 6th, 2015

Growing up as millennials, we were taught that hard work is the only way to achieve our goals and get ahead. The pressure to fight for what we want is all we know. For us, there is no other option besides giving 110 percent to be The Best. So, every semester, I, like so many […]


Lab Work at Rush University Medical Center

Lab Work at Rush University Medical Center

November 2nd, 2015

Starting summer of this year, I became a lab assistant (volunteer) at Rush University Medical Center in the Pediatrics Department. I wanted to gain more experience in the hospital setting (different from patient care areas), learn more medical terminology, familiarize myself with scientific laboratory equipment, and get more connections to doctors, researchers, nurses, and more. Since […]
