Scholarship Searches

Scholarship Searches

February 29th, 2016

Affording a college education can be expensive, especially if you plan to dorm on-campus. Besides financial aid from the FAFSA, scholarships (external and internal) can substantially reduce expenses. But getting a scholarship isn’t easy. You have to earn it; you need to meet all the qualifications that the scholarship specifies for. One advise I have […]


Colossus 2016: NICK OFFERMAN

Colossus 2016: NICK OFFERMAN

February 28th, 2016

Colossus. 2016. Nick. Offerman. I’ve been hearing rumors of Colossus since  I attended Orientation Week  before freshman year. I heard raging reviews of a huge concert and comedian combo in Gentile Arena. They told me about the super cheap student tickets, which meant the show was usually sold out. And I learned that the reveal party […]


Overnight Visit

Overnight Visit

February 25th, 2016

  I remember during my senior year of high school, I attended one of the overnights and I loved it! It was a great way to get to know the Loyola campus, meet new people and attend a class. I got along with my host and had a great time. When I heard about being […]


Midterms: How to plan for two weeks of anxiety

Midterms: How to plan for two weeks of anxiety

February 24th, 2016

In the midst of my fourth semester here at Loyola, I think I’ve finally narrowed down a plan to conquer midterm tests, papers and projects. Midterm week or weeks here at Loyola are not officially defined by the school but are defined by your professors. This can bring a flurry of misery for students. Some students complete all of […]


Finding Your Spot at Loyola

Finding Your Spot at Loyola

February 24th, 2016

Everyone has a spot. No matter what age you are or where you live, you know exactly where you work best. In high school it was the local Starbucks. It was the only place around my town where students could hang out, do homework, and drink coffee. Honestly it sounds cliche because it’s Starbucks, but […]


LUC MSA for Everyone

LUC MSA for Everyone

February 24th, 2016

The Loyola University Chicago’s Muslim Student Association’s IAW is Islamic appreciation week. MSA hosts “Walk a Mile in Her Hijab” and encourages all non hijabis and non-Muslims to wear a hijab for a day. In case you are unsure of what a hijab is, it is a head covering for religious reasons. Walk a Mile […]


Commitment to Service is More Than A Tagline

Commitment to Service is More Than A Tagline

February 23rd, 2016

Let me be honest with you: sometimes things are not what they seem. (A shock, I know.) Sometimes things are advertised or labelled without actually being true. Sometimes people say or write things that aren’t necessarily accurate in the hopes of catching your interest and hoping you’ll focus on other things instead of their tricks. […]


Sophomore Life: Spring Semester

Sophomore Life: Spring Semester

February 22nd, 2016

I still cannot believe that in only a couple of months, I will be exactly halfway done with my undergraduate studies. I have many friends who are currently freshman students, so sometimes, I get caught up in the freshman lifestyle- being excited by the little things, having so much enthusiasm, and getting lost around campus […]


Jesuit Jammin’

Jesuit Jammin’

February 20th, 2016

It’s no secret that Loyola loves their Jesuits. And a little Rambler basketball doesn’t hurt either, so why not combine the two? Once a year during a regular season men’s basketball game the Jesuits take over for the “Jesuit Jam”. This year was my first ever Jesuit Jam, and I’m quite sad to have missed […]


The Valentine’s Day Monologues

The Valentine’s Day Monologues

February 19th, 2016

When we hear “V-Day,” most of us think of Valentine’s Day. However, in a very modern and relevant way, it means much more than bouquets of roses and candy hearts. V-Day also signifies a global movement to end violence against women and girls. On February 12 and 13, Loyola held its annual Vagina Monologues event. […]
