Kaia Trubiano

Livin’ La Vida Loyola

I’m Kaia Trubiano, a sophomore from Cleveland, Ohio. My major is social work, but I’m on the pre-law track. I love all things pop culture, Cleveland (especially the sports!), and good restaurants! I’m also loving living in the best city in the world and exploring all it has to offer.

St. Pat’s Day

St. Pat’s Day

April 10th, 2014

St. Patrick’s day in the city is always a great time.  A parade, a green river, masses of happy people decked out in green… what more could you ask for? Each year, Chicago has a parade and St. Patrick’s Day celebration on the Saturday before the actual holiday.  I’ve had a blast each year, and […]


Care Package

Care Package

February 18th, 2014

I received the greatest care package the other day from my family.  It was a bunch of random items, but strangely enough, it was all I ever wanted for Valentines day! Here’s a few of the things I received. 1.  Yum Yum Sauce.- Ok, if you’ve never had yum yum sauce, I insist you try […]


Madonna Della Strada

Madonna Della Strada

February 11th, 2014

Loyola’s cathedral, Madonna Della Strada, is the most beautiful cathedral I have ever seen in America (I say America because the most beautiful cathedrals I have ever seen are located in Rome, where I spent a semester abroad). Whether you’re inside the cathedral attending Sunday mass or jogging by the cathedral on a lakefront run, […]


The Perfect Study Spot

The Perfect Study Spot

February 6th, 2014

Recently, I’ve been itching to find a new study spot. I cannot focus in my apartment (I usually turn on the TV and watch a “Friends” marathon) and I can’t focus at the library, either (I  just want to socialize while there).  My apartment in Lakeview is full of a ton of cool coffee shops […]


Superbowl Sunday

February 6th, 2014

I’ll admit it, I’m not a huge NFL fan.  But, I do understand football (coming from a big family of all football players helped me understand the game) so I was excited to watch a (hopefully) close, competitive game.  So… the game was basically a blow out, but I enjoyed spending time with friends, eating […]


Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday

January 30th, 2014

As I have stated numerous times. I am absolutely in love with Chicago.  Chicago provides you with so many opportunities. As cliche as it sounds, the world is at your fingertips here in the Windy City! Obviously, there is a ton to do in Chicago, whether it be heading to a Second City Comedy show, […]


Friends Weekend

Friends Weekend

January 20th, 2014

I was lucky enough to hitch a ride back to Chicago with two of my best friends from high school.  One of them goes to school in Chicago at Columbia, and the other was just visiting us for the weekend.  She has been to Chicago before, but it was nice to show her around a […]


Winter Break

January 20th, 2014

Loyola is absolutely amazing for so many reasons. Reason #27 (roughly) of why Loyola is the best: they give us one full month of winter break! I remember as a freshman I had mixed feelings about this long hiatus from my new college friends, but as a busy, busy senior, this long break was exactly […]


Volunteer!

November 20th, 2013

One of my favorite things about attending a Jesuit institution is it’s important value, “service to others.”  It seems like there are infinite volunteer opportunities at Loyola, whether they be posted online or posted on bulletin boards throughout the many buildings.  Volunteering has always been a huge part of my life, so I was excited […]


My First Cubs Game

My First Cubs Game

October 15th, 2013

Sadly, I went to my first Cubs game as a senior in college.  (I know… it’s embarrassing…my baseball superfan father couldn’t fathom it)  But… Wrigley field was just as awesome as everyone says it is!! My friend got free Cubs tickets for my roommate and I.  The seats were great, right near home plate!  I […]
