“I Should Probably Study Since I Have An Exam This Week…” – Rambler

“I Should Probably Study Since I Have An Exam This Week…” – Rambler

September 19th, 2016

You casually come back to class after a relaxing weekend and remember you had some exams this week. I think its best if you studied… but what is studying without a beautiful view and concentration? Its so important to know that the Information Commons Center is not the ONLY place to study. It will most […]


To Job or Not To Job

To Job or Not To Job

September 18th, 2016

  Loyola can sometimes seem to have a reputation as being a posh private university, and while it’s true, we are a private university, not all of us have super “posh” backgrounds. Finances are a real issue that most Loyola students deal with everyday whether they talk about it or not. So when is the […]


Calling All Commuters!

Calling All Commuters!

September 14th, 2016

Commuter life is a world of its own. If there’s one major difference between Loyola students, it’s if you are a commuter or you dorm on-campus; our [commuter] lives are quite unique and different.   Unlike the dorming student, we travel, sometimes from afar, every single day via different methods of transportation. Train, bus, car […]


Revisiting Summer

Revisiting Summer

September 7th, 2016

After [spring] finals week, I always fathom about what kind of summer I am going to have, what am I going to do, am I going to be productive…the list is endless. As a native Chicagoan, you would think that I would roam the streets of the Magnificent Mile or take a typical touristy picture […]


Summer break already?

Summer break already?

May 4th, 2016

It is pretty scary to know that I’ll be entering into my third year at Loyola. Time goes by faster than you think. Sophomore year is coming to an end. It certainly does not feel like summer break is next week, given the recent weather Chicago has been having. Some days, we’ve had winter-like weather, […]


Two Years Left!?!

Two Years Left!?!

April 29th, 2016

Do you think high school went fast? You’re in for a ride because college goes by much faster. I remember sitting in a classroom for seven hours a day with one lunch break in high school wondering if the day would go by any faster. Every year after that initial freshman year, the day went by more […]


Are You Sure I’m Almost a Senior?

Are You Sure I’m Almost a Senior?

April 28th, 2016

I promise you that just last year I was moving into a college dorm for the first time, trying to decide on a major and making new friends. Or maybe I was back for round two, just starting to get the hang of things, making some really good friends and even spending a semester abroad […]


Summer is Coming

Summer is Coming

April 28th, 2016

  As we wrap up the projects and exams and say goodbye to our freshman year, It’s interesting to look back and see just how much we’ve changed over the last nine months. In August I was eighteen and anxious. I started this year without any friends, I started this year with a roommate, I […]


Loyola’s Multicultural Greek Council

Loyola’s Multicultural Greek Council

April 26th, 2016

It seems like every American knows about sororities and fraternities, and the not-always-positive image of them that exists because of movies like Neighbors and Legally Blonde. People see them as white, full of, well, the type of people whose appropriate adjectives I can’t type in my position as an employee for my school. Of course, most […]


Sophomore Year Reflections

April 22nd, 2016

A big part of the Jesuit community involves reflection. We use reflection as a tool to tap into our past life in order to improve our future lives. Reflection is something highly valued in the Loyola Community, so I’ll take this chance to share my reflections with you as a fellow student. As I’ve mentioned before, I […]
