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.

Taco Fest

October 15th, 2013

TACO FEST. Does that not sound like the greatest festival ever? Well, it was.  My roommate and I heard from our friends that there are always a tons of great festivals around the Lakeview area. (Area round the Addison/Belmont stop on the Red line) We did our research and discovered the Sam Adams Lakeview Taco […]


Summer in Ohio

September 10th, 2013

My last summer as a college student was bittersweet! I tried to make the most of every moment because I knew next summer I would (hopefully!) be employed or in graduate school. I spent my summer back in Kirtland, Ohio (just 20 minutes outside of Cleveland) with my parents, brother, sister, and cute puppy, Marley. […]


Onward to Senior Year!

May 7th, 2013

As cliche as it sounds, I truly cannot believe how fast my college years have gone by.  It seems like just yesterday I was moving into Regis Hall and making friends who are still my close friends today.  There are so many great memories I have had these past three years, but here are a […]

New Favorite Restaurant: Cantina Laredo

April 25th, 2013

The other day, I met my friend from my hometown, who also lives in Chicago (she teaches at a Chicago Public school) at Cantina Laredo.  We had both never been there, but I suggested it because I have heard good things.  Also, I’ve passed it a few times (its right on State Street), and the […]


Cousins in Chicago

Cousins in Chicago

April 25th, 2013

Last weekend, my older cousin and her best friend visited me in Chicago!  They were my first visitors of the semester, so I was really excited to show them around the city.  They have only been here for dance competitions and other work related things (they’re dance teachers), so they were in for a big […]


The Best Study View

The Best Study View

April 12th, 2013

This week has been a busy one for me.  I’ve had a few tests as well as interviews for my internship placement this upcoming fall.  My favorite study spot in Rogers Park would have to be the IC (Information Commons).  How could you not feel calm and de-stressed with this view?!

This Wednesday, our new Damen Student Center was unveiled! There was a ribbon cutting at 9 am, and throughout the day there were dance performances, free samples from the new food court, games and prizes.

St. Baldrick’s Day

This past week, one of the fraternities at Loyola (Sigma Alpha Epsilon) put on their annual philanthropy event, “Paddy Murphy Week”.  The week includes events such as penny wars (a competition between sororities), powderpuff football, Paddy’s Widow Pageant (a talent show between girls in different sororities) and St. Baldrick’s Day.  Any proceeds made from these […]


Internships on Internships: Cover Letter Tips

March 13th, 2013

Since I’m a second semester junior (crazy!!), it’s about that time where I have to start applying to social work internships for my senior year.  The School of Social Work requires all Bachelor’s students to have either a summer internship or a fall and spring internship during senior year in order to graduate.  Other majors […]


Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day

February 21st, 2013

I spent this Valentine’s Day with a few of my best friends.  We called it “Galentine’s Day.” (Well, we actually got that from Amy Poehler on the funniest television show ever, Parks and Recreation) We planned on making a bunch of creative desserts inspired by Pinterest, but we ended up being too lazy to attempt […]
