  This week on campus we are celebrating the 145th annual commencement ceremony of our Class of 2015 graduates!

Job Hunting

May 3rd, 2015

  My graduation is T H I S Friday at 3 pm!  I am so excited, but so are my parents so I can start job hunting!  I want to share a website that has really helped me out to get organized on my job search.  Sorry for the short post, but after having a […]


Graduation Dress

Graduation Dress

May 1st, 2015

Graduation is quickly approaching, and who is freaking out about what to wear!?  Luckily, I already knew what I wanted for my special day.  I definitely wanted to go with a Lilly Pulitzer dress, so dress shopping was much easier for me.  I went to the Von Maur in Lombard, IL because they were the […]


1,353 Feet in the Air

1,353 Feet in the Air

April 25th, 2015

At 108 stories tall and grandly poised in the heart of Chicago, the Willis Tower held the title of the world’s tallest building for nearly 25 years after its completion in 1973. The Skydeck Chicago, on the 103rd floor, remains the highest observation deck in the U.S. On Friday, I become one of the 1.5 […]


The Heartland Café

April 24th, 2015

For all of you organic lovers out there, I found the perfect little place for you! The Heartland Café is a small café off of the Morse stop (just one stop north on the red line from Loyola) that specializes in all-organic and locally grown foods! I have a friend who is a health nut […]


Summer

Summer

April 23rd, 2015

Alright, so I know summer is not here yet. Honestly, it does not feel like summer at all with this recent weather we’ve been having. But as a Chicago native, I shouldn’t be so surprised with the crazy weather. Anyways, in preparation for the summer, I have planned everything out day by day. As I […]


Recorded Lectures: a love and hate relationship

April 22nd, 2015

I cringe every time a professor tells me that they record his or her lectures.  Why?  Well, at that point, he or she is giving me the chance to not listen.  I am tempted and the struggle is real.  However, I understand why the professors do it.  I really do!  I love hand writing all […]


Lyric Opera’s Carousel

Lyric Opera’s Carousel

April 22nd, 2015

This past Friday night, I had the wonderful opportunity of seeing the Lyric Opera’s production of Carousel—for free! In this post, I’m going to tell you all about this stunning performance and how I scored free tickets—and how you can too! (Or at least discounted tickets). Last week, I saw a contest through a company […]


Spring on Campus

Spring on Campus

April 21st, 2015

There is nothing better than Spring time on campus when all of the snow has melted away and the flowers begin to bloom. Even on a cloudy or rainy day, Loyola’s campus looks beautiful. Below I’m sharing some of my favorite photos of campus this season:             If these photos […]


The end of my internship

The end of my internship

April 19th, 2015

Last Wednesday was the last day of my internship at Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation.  It was difficult to wrap my head around the fact that I had been interning for 3x a week for a total of 3 months.  I do not know how 3 months went by so quickly!  It was so sad […]
