Yuliya Chernyavskaya

The Lively Undergrad Chronicles

Hey there! I'm Yuliya Chernyavskaya, and I'm a junior at Loyola majoring in sociology and marketing. My family is from Northbrook, a suburb of Chicago, but I've loved every second I've spent at my second home: Loyola! When I'm not busy with classes, I enjoy running, doing research on various topics and exploring Chicago and all the wonderful things it has to offer . Thanks for checking out my blog!

Homework Tips Part 1

February 9th, 2014

After a long hiatus from blogging, I’m finally getting back into the groove of things. A topic I want to revisit in the next two posts is about how to stay on top of your classes. This is extremely important for those students taking 5, 6 or even 7 classes (like me). Many students think […]


September’s Business Career Fair

October 24th, 2013

Only a week ago during work did I realize that I never wrote a blog about the Business Career Fair that I attended back at the end of September. Even though it was almost a month ago, I still think it is important that I write about it to emphasize the importance of going to […]


Pets in College

Pets in College

September 26th, 2013

About a month ago, my boyfriend and I got a kitten named Ike. Since then, I’ve been meaning to write about him, but he didn’t fit well into any of my blogs. Ike is just over 5 months old so of course he requires a lot of attention. He’s curious about everything, like every baby […]


Making College Fun

September 26th, 2013

Even with a lot of work to do, I still find time to do enjoyable activities. Studying is important, but having downtime is just as important. I don’t work well when I’m stressed because my mood and motivation go down and nothing gets done. Therefore, I’m going to write several of the things I’ve done […]


Autumn Is Upon Us

September 26th, 2013

Four days ago, September 22, was the official beginning of Autumn. Leaves are slowly changing colors, the weather is beginning to chill, and homework is piling up. After having my first couple of tests, I can officially say that every aspect about Summer is over. Late nights gazing at the stars have been replaced by […]


Photo Time!

Photo Time!

September 6th, 2013

I want to upload some photographs from this summer to give you guys more of a visual of what I was up to. These photos capture just several of the awesome days I had these past few months. Spring Awakening 2013- I didn’t take many photos so this isn’t the best representation of Spring Awakening, […]


All That’s Left of Summer Is Some Blogs

September 6th, 2013

We’re back in session for the 2013/2014 school year! Who’s excited? Even if you’re not, I hope you aren’t too upset that summer is over. Summer was nice, but my favorite season is Fall so I’m happy that school has started up again. There will be plenty of time ahead to blog about this semester, […]


Finals are Finished!

May 10th, 2013

Summer vacation is finally here, and this blog is long overdue. Finals are over, and the week was a rough one, so I’m really happy that they’re done. I had four tests and two papers due, and thankfully, the semester didn’t end poorly. On the first day of finals I had two night finals back-to-back. […]


Pros and Cons of Classes

April 9th, 2013

There’s less than a month left of classes, so why not write about them I say. Registration is coming up really soon, which means that I need to begin coordinating my schedule for next semester. For now, I’m finishing up my Spring semester, doing my best to balance work and school. This semester has been […]


Music Mix!

March 28th, 2013

I’m always on the run from one place to another, from class to class, job to job, stores, meetings, anything else imaginable. Therefore, I always have my phone charged and headphones in, listening to music. Every genre has it’s own beauty to me, so I have a little (actually a lot) of everything in my […]
