December 7th, 2016

    (directed toward high school students)   I know that the word “college” may bring a whole bunch of words to mind- independence, adulthood, dorming, friends, hard classes, doctors and professors, and so much more.

LUC MSA Sisters’ Retreat 2016

November 9th, 2016

It has been a quite stressful couple of weeks as I wrap up midterms, exams, papers, and my first semester of Sophomore year. Whenever I feel overwhelmed, I try to find something that I look forward to; it makes the wait worthwhile and makes me want to work twice as hard to get through the […]

  After a rain delay, blowing a 3-1 lead, and 10 long innings, The Cubs made their lifelong fans proud to “fly the W” for one last time for the baseball season. This past week, Chicago made history in a couple different ways. The Chicago Cubs won the World Series for the first time in […]

Concert Season

Concert Season

November 1st, 2016

As a Chicagoan, one of my favorite unofficial seasons has started that all music loving college students absolutely adore — Concert season. With Chicago being the third largest city in the country, it seems like no matter what genre you listen to, and how big or small the artist might be, if they’re touring, they’re […]

Personal Reflection of My Time at LUC

October 26th, 2016

It has been a while since I last reflected on my overall experience of my time at Loyola. There’s a lot to say about how I have changed as a student and person- I have been more mature, more experienced, and more knowledgeable in all realms. It is funny how I always think of myself […]
