The Finish Line is Within Sight

LUC MSA Sisters’ Retreat 2016

November 9th, 2016

It has been a quite stressful couple of weeks as I wrap up midterms, exams, papers, and my first semester of Sophomore year. Whenever I feel overwhelmed, I try to find something that I look forward to; it makes the wait worthwhile and makes me want to work twice as hard to get through the […]


Life Outside of Loyola

Life Outside of Loyola

November 2nd, 2016

For those who do not know me by now, I am a commuter student. I live in Albany Park, which is about 45 minutes to an hour away (depending on rush hour times and whether or not there is a baseball game at Wrigley Field). ┬áBesides the academic life at Loyola and talking about all […]

Personal Reflection of My Time at LUC

October 26th, 2016

It is quite shocking that we have hit the midpoint of the semester. After 5 weeks, we get to go back on break for Thanksgiving and bring back the turkey dinner and start shopping for Christmas gifts. After that, we have 2 weeks of classes and we can finally say that fall semester is done. […]


Bring On the Opportunities

Bring On the Opportunities

October 6th, 2016

  Being a college students means being constantly busy and constantly handed new opportunities (or so we all hope), and this isn’t a bad thing. Opportunities are the gateway to successful careers and lives, but there is a point at which you run out of time to accept these opportunities and their implied commitments. This […]

“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?

Finances are a real issue that most Loyola students deal with everyday whether they talk about it or not. So when is the […]
