A Series of Firsts: My First Cubs Game

A Series of Firsts: My First Cubs Game

November 15th, 2018

There is nothing like going to Wrigley Field with a couple of friends and a hot dog in hand. Or so I had been told. I had grown up with my mom trying to convince my sister and I to watch the World Series and get into baseball and root for the Pittsburgh Pirates and […]


Life’s a Beach!

Life’s a Beach!

November 14th, 2018

Even if you’re from Chicago, when you think of the city, you might not think about beaches much – or at all. I always find I surprise people when I mention that there’s a beach at the end of my street. It’s a real beach, no exaggeration – sandy shores, a pier, a lifeguard chair […]


Supporting the Arts!

Supporting the Arts!

November 13th, 2018

Although some of our most populated majors at Loyola are science-based, like nursing or biology, and we have a very good business school, Loyola is still a liberal arts school seeking to educate and allow a space for the creative arts. That’s why we have a Fine Arts Program, and that Fine Arts Program puts […]


Such a ‘Bler: It Finally Snowed!

Such a ‘Bler: It Finally Snowed!

November 10th, 2018

Disclaimer: The above photo was taken on the first snow day of 2017. Perhaps the snow is one of my top favourite parts about going to a university in Chicago. I know from interactions that I am definitely one of the few who will confidently say this, and that I moved to Chicago mainly for […]


Remembering the Kristallnacht at Loyola

Remembering the Kristallnacht at Loyola

November 9th, 2018

To be honest with you, one of my main hesitations about going to Loyola at first was that it’s a Jesuit university, and I’m not religious. But it’s been really great, these past four years, to see that Loyola is not just a Catholic university but one that thinks about the diversity of its students. […]

Loyola Opens Up 2018-2019 Basketball Season With a Win

November 8th, 2018

What a memorable Final Four run we had that captured the nation’s attention a few months ago. Now, Loyola is back at it again with its 2018-2019 season! The Ramblers opened up with a home game at Gentile Arena against UMKC on Tuesday night! Loyola commemorated the Final Four Season to make the opening game […]


Why am I at Loyola 4 years later?

Why am I at Loyola 4 years later?

November 8th, 2018

First and foremost, for those of you who don’t know me, I am Husna and I have been working in Loyola’s Undergraduate Admission’s Office since I was a Freshman so this is quite bittersweet, being my last year here. Just to get a little background, I am from Chicago, IL, I love to shop, travel, […]


Greeksgiving

Greeksgiving

November 7th, 2018

How do Loyola students give back? Well, one of the ways that the Sorority and Fraternity Life organizations came up with is Greeksgiving – led by Allyssa Suarez, a sister of Delta Phi Lambda and the Programming Chair for the Multicultural Greek Council, the idea was to make bags and fill them with supplies that […]

Such a ‘Bler: HalLUween 2018

November 2nd, 2018

October 31st 2017, I found myself at the Chicago Northalsted Halloween Parade & Costume Contest. I went as a social butterfly with my harlequin doll roommate and our closest friends. The weather was so chilly, and we couldn’t feel our hands half the time, but the energy was addictive. This year, my sophomore roommate and […]


Cheer for Ol’ Loyola

Cheer for Ol’ Loyola

November 1st, 2018

I have to say, I’m absolutely in love with this campus. I enjoyed my study abroad experiences in both Beijing and Rome, but neither of the campuses were as absolutely gorgeous as our Lake Shore Campus. (When I left Beijing, the campus was so torn up due to construction a normal five minute walk to […]
