Rambler's Pie: A Fresh Slice of Loyola

Welcome to my blog! I'm Chris and I am currently a Junior commuter at Loyola University. I was born and raised in Chicago and went to St. Hilary for grade school and DePaul College Prep (formerly named Gordon Tech) for high school. I love to play the piano and cello and volunteer my time at the hospital.

Too Much To Afford?

Too Much To Afford?

February 22nd, 2018

One thing that I always hear, is that Loyola is an expensive institution. As a private, Jesuit school, it is obvious that it would be more expensive than a state school, however there are things that YOU can consider to make Loyola more affordable. In other words, it isn’t as expensive as you think, once […]


Working at the Office of Undergraduate Admissions

Working at the Office of Undergraduate Admissions

February 17th, 2018

To say in the least, I consider the people in this office to be like family. We have so many outgoing student workers and amicable admission counselors who make each day so fun and enjoyable. Unlike other offices, our office takes care of the most essential part of the university- admitting students! It is always […]


New Years Celebration: Year of the Dog

New Years Celebration: Year of the Dog

February 7th, 2018

New Years, again? In many parts of Asia, New Years is celebrated based on the Lunar calendar rather than the traditional Gregorian calendar starting on January 1st. This year, New Years falls on February 16, 2018 and it so happens to be the year of the dog (based on the 12-year zodiac cycle). Those who […]


Federal Work Study

Federal Work Study

January 25th, 2018

I high encourage all of you guys to do Federal Work Study (FWS) and mark that down when you do the FAFSA. The purpose of FWS is to help undergraduate and graduate students earn some income, based on their financial need. Especially at Loyola University, we are known for hiring student workers for a lot […]


Apparently this is “Spring Semester”

Apparently this is “Spring Semester”

January 18th, 2018

It’s great to be back at school and welcome to Spring Semester, where there are still inches of snow cover and single digit weather! Nevertheless, being back at school and seeing old friends seem to warm things up a bit. Things are starting off to a great start. My school and work schedule are doable […]


Cheers to a Great Semester!

Cheers to a Great Semester!

December 8th, 2017

Just like that, Fall 2017 is done. It is so remarkable and surprising that time went by so fast- I still remember the first day of class in August so vividly! Especially since Chicago has not received much snow yet, it doesn’t feel like Winter Break is approaching yet. Anyways, it is good to end […]


It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year at LUC

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year at LUC

December 1st, 2017

Happy December, everyone! Just like that, the fall semester is almost done! The school year is almost done and LUC students are finally starting to feel the Christmas spirit. When students came back from Thanksgiving break, they were welcomed by a huge 25 foot decorated Christmas tree, lit-up garland on the ledges of the stairway, […]

Cuisine Night

November 29th, 2017

One of the many things that makes Loyola so awesome is the fact that many registered student organizations create and plan fun events for everyone to enjoy! Just about every day, students have the option of attending organizational meetings, listen in on speaker events, doing activities, and so much more. I am a part of […]


All about Sr. Jean!

All about Sr. Jean!

November 17th, 2017

Perhaps you are still new to Loyola and don’t know about some internal famous people at Loyola. The first person on the list of famous people would be no one other than… Sister Jean!  ________________________________________________________ She is a living legacy here at Loyola University. At the current age of 98, she is an active nun […]


1 Semester Left

1 Semester Left

November 15th, 2017

Things have been rather hectic for me for the better, I suppose. Applications for graduate school, language competency exam, 19 credits worth of classwork, VSA organization meetings and preparations for events, and other personal obligations I have. To say in the least, I am up and going! There’s a lot to do and so little […]
