Language Fairs, Diversity, and Rogers Park Living

October 27th, 2014

Did you know that Rogers Park is one of the most ethnically diverse places in the entire world? Here at Loyola, we live among people from all different ethnic backgrounds and heritages. Personally, this was one of the reasons Loyola was so attractive to me, I could make friends and meet people who had completely […]


Connections to the Community

October 27th, 2014

Being a student at Loyola does not mean that you strictly focus on academics alone. With the u-pass (which gives you unlimited access on the CTA- a privilege for college students), you along with your friends can explore the city of Chicago at no cost through public transportation. You can visit different neighborhoods, fancy restaurants […]


Ramblin’ Around Different Chicago Neighborhoods

Ramblin’ Around Different Chicago Neighborhoods

October 25th, 2014

Chicago is one of the world’s greatest cities with a myriad of unique neighborhoods. Below are some neighborhoods that I have already visited, and loved, as well as others that I hope to visit in the near future.  ☑ Boystown Closest “L” Station: Addison (Red) Boystown is the nation’s first officially recognized gay village and largest LGBT […]


When the City Opens its Doors: Open House Chicago

When the City Opens its Doors: Open House Chicago

October 23rd, 2014

Exploring Chicago is one of the many perks of going to Loyola. But it’s not every weekend that the city gives you an opportunity to go into the buildings you only ever see the outside of. Some friends and I jumped at the opportunity to explore Chicago in an entirely new way when the Chicago Architecture […]


Open House Recap

Open House Recap

October 22nd, 2014

  Open Houses are some of my favorite events of the year. They are simply fantastic, and I’m not just saying them because I coordinate them. Here are my TOP 5 Reasons for LOVING Open House: 1. Reconnecting with prospective students – I absolutely love recognizing students from college fairs and high school visits and […]


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 […]
