Welcome to Loyola University Chicago!

Whether you are the first one in your family to go to college or you are the first sibling/child to go to Loyola, we are ready to welcome you to the Loyola family! I understand that many of you are at different points of your college career. The purpose of this blog “Life El-elevated” is help students coming from a variety of backgrounds to get better acquainted with their new home.

A Little About Me:

My name is Miguel L Molina and I am a Junior at Loyola University Chicago! I am a student of the School of Communications pursuing a degree in Advertising/Public Relations with minors in Marketing and International Relations (with focuses in Latin America and Asia/Pacific). Likewise, I am also a member of the Interdisciplinary Honors Program. When I am not studying, I work as the Marketing Program Assistant at Quinlan School of Business and as a Student Blogger at the Undergraduate Admissions Office. During my free time, I enjoy playing piano and bass trombone; trying new cuisines; exploring unique bookstores and reading classic literature/Spanish literature!
