Two Years Left!?!

Two Years Left!?!

April 29th, 2016

Do you think high school went fast? You’re in for a ride because college goes by much faster. I remember sitting in a classroom for seven hours a day with one lunch break in high school wondering if the day would go by any faster. Every year after that initial freshman year, the day went by more […]


Are You Sure I’m Almost a Senior?

Are You Sure I’m Almost a Senior?

April 28th, 2016

I promise you that just last year I was moving into a college dorm for the first time, trying to decide on a major and making new friends. Or maybe I was back for round two, just starting to get the hang of things, making some really good friends and even spending a semester abroad […]


Loyola’s Multicultural Greek Council

Loyola’s Multicultural Greek Council

April 26th, 2016

It seems like every American knows about sororities and fraternities, and the not-always-positive image of them that exists because of movies like Neighbors and Legally Blonde. People see them as white, full of, well, the type of people whose appropriate adjectives I can’t type in my position as an employee for my school. Of course, most […]


Dance, Eat, Museum, Repeat

Dance, Eat, Museum, Repeat

April 24th, 2016

One of the perks of living with two seniors is getting to share in the joy of end of semester celebrations. As far as senior events go, Damen Ball has got to be one of the most exciting. This dance comes at the end of the spring semester each year as a sort of ‘senior […]


Sophomore Year Reflections

April 22nd, 2016

A big part of the Jesuit community involves reflection. We use reflection as a tool to tap into our past life in order to improve our future lives. Reflection is something highly valued in the Loyola Community, so I’ll take this chance to share my reflections with you as a fellow student. As I’ve mentioned before, I […]


10 Things I Did Not Expect About Loyola

10 Things I Did Not Expect About Loyola

April 22nd, 2016

    Every school is different, and for the incoming college freshman, they’re all unknown territory. Now you can read any number of student testimonials and pictures, but you’ll never actually know till you’re there. So why should you read my list? Well, because you still want to know what you’re getting yourself into before […]


A Night at the Museum of Contemporary Art

A Night at the Museum of Contemporary Art

April 16th, 2016

Glamorous gowns, high heels, makeup, hairspray. Last Saturday, my friends, aka sisters, and I spent hours getting all dressed up, then danced the night away at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) for our sorority’s annual formal. This was my first time to attend a social event held at a museum, and it was an […]


Summer at Loyola

Summer at Loyola

April 15th, 2016

Although summer usually means a long clean break from school, many students at Loyola choose to spend their time on campus, taking classes online, studying abroad or pursuing an on campus job. This summer is the first summer I’ve decided to spend away from home. I’m working for a Loyola department called Conference Services. In […]


Being an Out-of-State Student at LUC

Being an Out-of-State Student at LUC

April 12th, 2016

In looking at colleges, you might have considered a public school what with reciprocal or in-state tuition, compared to a private school like Loyola. That was definitely the pull for me away from Loyola, but all the other things brought me back! I’m from Minnesota. But here at Loyola, I have friends from California, Pennsylvania, […]
