Chicago Eats: Part 1

Chicago Eats: Part 1

October 16th, 2014

I’m sure you already know this, but Chicago has some of the coolest restaurants possible. You can always find a neat place to go to for brunch, lunch, dinner, or even a sweet desert—you name it! That being said, there is always a new place to explore, and a new place to try in Chicago […]


Why I (Almost) Want to Run the Chicago Marathon

Why I (Almost) Want to Run the Chicago Marathon

October 16th, 2014

Never have I ever had any sort of a desire to run the Chicago Marathon. I can barely work up the motivation to run a 5K. A friend of mine from high school was so inspired by World Vision (an organization that provides clean water for people in Africa) that she decided to run the […]


Relax and Breathe

Relax and Breathe

October 16th, 2014

The best place on the Lake Shore Loyola Campus to relax, reflect, and take a deep breath would be to sit on the ledge facing the lake (behind the IC or chapel). Unlike most schools, Lake Michigan can be considered like our backyard because quite literally, it is. The sound of the waves/water are soothing and […]


Why Loyola?

October 13th, 2014

I applied to many colleges and universities within the city including Northwestern, DePaul, University of Chicago, and St. Xavier because I wanted to commute instead of dorm. Out of all the schools, I wanted to find the one school that I could do well in, had a fantastic pre-med program, and focused on the well-being […]


Loyola keeps winnin’

October 13th, 2014

It’s difficult to not sound cliche every time I have to answer the question: Why did you choose Loyola?  First, let me take you to 2007.  I remember that year perfectly because I had my list of universities I wanted to apply to.  Loyola was the first one down on the list.  My mother’s good […]


Secret Study Spot

Secret Study Spot

October 9th, 2014

Since the last post I wrote about was on one of my favorite spots at Loyola’s Water Tower campus, I wanted to write this post about one of my favorite spots on the Lake Shore campus. Also, because I am still being bombarded with midterms, I thought I would let you all in on my […]


Ramblin’ around Chicago

Ramblin’ around Chicago

October 9th, 2014

  To indulge myself in the complete Loyola experience, I decided to explore around campus and find three events that in some way related to my experience as a Loyola student. Much to my delight, Loyola provided several opportunities for me to go to, such as sporting events (I attended a men’s soccer game), a farmer’s […]


Commuter Life

Commuter Life

October 9th, 2014

As a college student, there is two distinguishing points that define one another: either you dorm on campus or you commute. Being a commuter has it’s pros and cons and so does dorming.  On the positive side, I am always up and about and most importantly I organize myself in a timely manner. I have […]


Public Transportation in the City

October 8th, 2014

Today was the first day back from fall break! Many students traveled home this weekend to visit their families and friends. In honor of this past break filled with travel, I’m going to talk about public transportation in the city, and how even out-of-staters can learn the ropes of transportation in Chicago quickly. Coming from […]


Find Yourself at Open House!

October 7th, 2014

This year we will be offering two Fall Open Houses on Saturday, October 18th and Saturday and Saturday, November 8th on our Lake Shore Campus for High School Seniors, High School […]
