We only have a couple weeks left of school, and like everyone else, I can’t wait for this summer. While some of you may be looking forward to bonfires, iced tea, seeing your pets back home (I know I am), or if you’re staying in the city, enjoying Chicago when it isn’t below 50 degrees. […]


Best of Chicago: In Summer

Best of Chicago: In Summer

April 18th, 2017

The weather is finally getting warmer. If you are like me, I bring out my Bermuda shorts, canvas shoes, and sandals from the depths of my closet. I pour myself a glass of freshly brewed sweet iced tea or cranberry kombucha in a Ball jar. Maybe, I am getting a little ahead of myself. Still, with […]

Get Your Laughs Around Chicago!

Get Your Laughs Around Chicago!

April 4th, 2017

With there only being about a month left of classes (scary, I know!), there aren’t many chances left to get a ~Chicago Experience~ which, in my opinion includes comedy shows. Chicago has consistently been a hub of laughter, especially with improv venues like Second City that is very well known to many people, producing comedians […]

Albany Park

Where is that? This area is my neighborhood, located in the north side of Chicago! Just like how Rogers Park is home to Loyola University Chicago, Albany Park is home to, well…MY HOME! Let’s dive into what’s awesome about this neighborhood (as well as other neighborhoods around LUC). As you know, Chicago is a dynamic […]


Why did I CHOOSE to go to college?

Why did I CHOOSE to go to college?

March 9th, 2017

After high school graduation, students are commonly considered as official, educated, and independent people. You can manage your own life now. Your future is up to you. You’re on your own now.  These things are sayings I have been told by family members and my own conscience. It is not to be taken in a condescending […]

Corrected Stereotypes About “The” College Experience

  As a first generation student, I had no idea what to expect about college. Other than seeing things in movies and TV shows about college, I had no real idea if those portrayed visions of college were actually true, or excessively overdone. To be honest, as a senior in high school, I had only […]
