Loyola’s Phoenix Newspaper

Loyola’s Phoenix Newspaper

February 26th, 2015

I am going to take the time to talk about the Loyola’s Phoenix Newspaper because come on, everyone reads it…right?  Well, honestly, I never read it religiously.  In fact, it took two whole years during my undergraduate career to actually get into the habit of reading it.  Now as a senior, I find myself reading […]


Residence Hall Bonding Over The Oscars

February 25th, 2015

As many of you may know, the Oscars were on this past Sunday night! For many people the Oscars are really fun to watch, to see if your favorite movies and stars will win awards! I wasn’t sure I’d get a chance to watch them, though, because I do not have a TV in my […]

Neonatology

February 24th, 2015

The field that I aspire to go into is Neonatology. Here, specialized pediatricians deal with newborn and premature babies. They make the final diagnosis and help monitor the baby’s health. Neonatologists are responsible for everything related to the newborn baby- cardiac care, skin care, deficiencies, mental problems, and more. To me, it is a wonderful job […]


Chapel Hill Memoir

Chapel Hill Memoir

February 22nd, 2015

On the night of February 10th, I remember being home relaxing after a long day of class and internship work.  Usually, I get home about 7 in the afternoon and that day was nothing new.  I was debating whether or not to go to the gym or finish my Biochemistry laboratory paper.  Well, I ended […]


Health And Safety Inspections In Residence Halls

February 20th, 2015

If you live in a residence hall on campus, you know that health and safety inspections happen twice a year (once each semester) to ensure that everything is kept safe and healthy! Our health and safety inspections in my residence hall, Mertz, were this past week, so in honor of passing, I thought I’d talk […]


Lunar New Year

Lunar New Year

February 19th, 2015

As some of you may or may not know, I am Vietnamese. Today, February 19, marks the first day of the lunar new year; in other words, Happy New Year! Along with the Chinese, the Vietnamese celebrate this wonderful day with hopes of prosperity, good luck, happiness, and peace. This holiday is full of meaning […]


Five Years from Now…Where Will You Be?

Five Years from Now…Where Will You Be?

February 19th, 2015

Last week, my UNIV 102 professor asked us to ‘journal’ on the topic, “Where do you see yourself five years from now?” As I started writing, I caught myself by surprise, because I tend to be an almost obsessive planner, my days scheduled down to the hour and my life dictated by Post-It Notes™. Yet, […]


Overnight Stays For Prospective Students

February 18th, 2015

Overnight stays are wonderful ways for prospective students to get to know Loyola better before making their final decision on a school this spring! Prospective students can sign up for overnight stays through the Undergraduate Admissions Office and will get the chance to stay overnight in a Loyola dorm with a current freshman. This is […]


The Best Thing in the World: Music

The Best Thing in the World: Music

February 16th, 2015

Music is a wonderful gift. It is set to inspire others, help cope with the pain, bring communities together, and put vibrant colors into life. The melodies, beats, bass, and instrumentals are different among the countless genres, ranging from pop to rock to alternative to classical. If the world never had music as part of […]
