Times of Transition

Times of Transition

January 31st, 2016

Transition: Passage from one state, stage, subject, or place to another. Throughout our lives we all undergo transitions, whether its slow like the changes of age over the years, or fast like moving from your childhood home to someplace completely new. The transition from high school to college I think falls somewhere in the middle. […]


Career Week 2016: Resumes in Review

Career Week 2016: Resumes in Review

January 30th, 2016

Your ticket to the industry, a piece of paper listing your greatest accomplishments, or your rite of passage to adulthood. No matter what you call it, a resume is a vital part of entering “real life”. Something that, for me, is approaching more quickly than I’d like to admit. Considering the necessity of a good resume […]


From Ohio to the Windy City

From Ohio to the Windy City

January 30th, 2016

Hello everyone and welcome to my new blog, A Rambler’s Travels. I created the title inspired by Jonathon Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels to play to the irony of college life here at Loyola. No, I will not be traveling to different dimensions or worlds but I hope to make your transition from home to campus life […]


Adjusting to Loyola as a Commuter

Adjusting to Loyola as a Commuter

January 27th, 2016

Adjusting to the college life was a big challenge for myself. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but what kept me going through the semester was the idea of how I am one step closer to fulfilling my aspirations. Currently, I am a biology/pre-med major in hopes of becoming a Pediatrician. One of […]


Life and Relationships in the Digital Age

Life and Relationships in the Digital Age

January 26th, 2016

Every college student with a smartphone and a potential romantic life knows how quickly the phone, a seemingly innocent communication device, can become a toxic incubator for second-guessing and unnecessary stress. You think you’re a reasonable person, but then you find yourself obsessing over a message marked “read,” wondering why you haven’t received a reply. […]


Chicago and Unpredictable, Crazy Weather

Chicago and Unpredictable, Crazy Weather

January 25th, 2016

If you are a native Chicagoan, this post heading should not be any surprise to you. Chicago weather, not matter what the news say (even if it’s Tom Skilling), the weather will not be exactly what you expect it to be. The winter season, especially, has been very funky lately. We haven’t had a white […]

Here’s to Hoping for Spring 2016

January 24th, 2016

  We’re only one week into a new semester and already things seem to be back to normal on campus. There are plenty of students in the IC on a Sunday afternoon, the downtown campus shuttle is always full, and the Damen Student Center has been busy with student organization meetings all week. At first […]

Hello to anyone reading this! I’m Meredith Simmons and I’m a Freshman here at Loyola, this is my first post as a LUC admissions blogger so introductions are necessary. I am a marketing major and I grew up in Northwest Indiana about an hour outside the city. I love reading, music and exploring the city. […]


Year in Review: 2015

Year in Review: 2015

January 21st, 2016

Another year has started and the “new year, new me” comments have come in once again. No doubt people will attempt to be a more updated version of themselves- even I. The entire year of 2015 was a life-changing year- for good and bad (but let’s focus on the ‘good’ portion!). 1) I play the […]


All About Me

All About Me

January 19th, 2016

Hello Future Ramblers, welcome to my amazing journey at Loyola. First of all, my name is Emily Carreno and I am just beginning my journey at Loyola. I am majoring in nursing and minoring in psychology. Many people ask me, “Why Loyola?” and I tell them because of the fascinating nursing program they offer. Loyola University Chicago has […]
