Miguel Molina

Life El-evated

In the Fall of 2015, I arrived on campus with both excitement and nervousness. Yet, I felt college was going to be truly a different experience. I am Miguel Molina, a junior commuter student majoring in Advertising/Public Relations with minors in Marketing and International Relations. I am also a member of the Interdisciplinary Honors Program. In my free time, I enjoy playing piano and bass trombone as well as cooking and appreciating different types of cuisines. As a native Chicagoan, I hope to share my perspective and experiences both here at Loyola and the greater Chicago community to show how you to live Life... El-evated.
