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.

The Final Chapter

The Final Chapter

April 26th, 2018

This blog, Rambler’s Pie: A Slice of Loyola, is something I value very much. When I was given this position as ‘blogger’ for the Undergraduate Admissions Office freshman year, little did I know how much I benefited from it. This blog gave me a second voice that was stronger, more descriptive, and creative. It allowed […]

Earlier this week, my organization (Vietnamese Student Association) had its last event of the academic year. It was a great event to celebrate the Vietnamese Diaspora and the new generation that came out of it. For instance, my mother was a Vietnam war refugee and came to the US for a better life; the new […]

If I could tell my high-school senior self….

If I could tell my high-school senior self….

March 30th, 2018

This is one question I get frequently–If you could go back in time, what would you tell your high school senior self? Any good advice to pass along? Quite frankly, my response has nothing to do with academics or have anything to with financing school. Nevertheless, I hope this gives you a better outlook on […]


Self-Care

Self-Care

March 22nd, 2018

It is very easy to get caught up with so many responsibilities in school,¬†extracurriculars, family, social life, and so much more, that you forget to take good care of yourself. I have trouble with this too and hopefully, I am not alone. There are so many things to do and it becomes a force of […]


Defining the ‘Loyola Experience’

Defining the ‘Loyola Experience’

March 14th, 2018

Spring break was last week and for the first time this semester, I was able to relax and reflect on my great Loyola journey and realize that my undergraduate years was coming to an end, faster than what I wanted. Working in the Undergraduate Admissions Office has allowed me to meet high school students and […]


Campus Diversity

Campus Diversity

March 1st, 2018

Many families and students ask if Loyola University is diverse and accepting of all people. In my opinion, there’s always room for improvement, but for now, students like myself work hard to make sure there is representation and respect for minority groups. As you all know, I am Vietnamese and I am a first-generation student […]


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

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 […]
