Study Abroad and More!

Study Abroad and More!

February 12th, 2019

  A lot of people ask me what it’s like to study abroad, but have you ever wondered… what it’s like, coming back from studying abroad? I know, I know, I didn’t either. I was like: heck yeah! I’ll come back (I guess, if I have to… I’d rather just have stayed… But…) There’s certainly ups […]


What’s the Story – of Emmett Till?

What’s the Story – of Emmett Till?

February 10th, 2019

Reading this blog sometimes, it may come across as if Loyola is just constantly hosting events about sad things in the world – I mean, I went to the Kristallnacht memorial, the session about the war in Yemen, and last week I went to an event called “Let the People See: The Story of Emmett […]

Let’s Not Repeat Fall Semester…

Let’s Not Repeat Fall Semester…

February 5th, 2019

For many of you, I’m sure Fall semester was successfully a breeze, and for others, it may have been a tough adjustment from the all the summer fun. Whatever the case is, it is important that we don’t repeat fall semester and always leave some room for growth. Whether you had a good semester or […]


A Series of Firsts: My First Time Back in Chicago

A Series of Firsts: My First Time Back in Chicago

January 31st, 2019

It’s been a couple of weeks since I came back to start my second semester of Sophomore year, and before coming, I was excited about coming back. Getting to see my friends after a month, living with the best roommate I could have asked for (shoutout to Devashree for putting up with me), being in […]


Girls and Weight Training?

Girls and Weight Training?

January 29th, 2019

A lot of times, there is a stigma placed on women who lift weights– associating them with ‘manly’ characteristics. This misconception that women should not lift weights and put on muscle mass is still largely existent today and is completely wrong. There are a lot of long term benefits to doing so, and solely doing […]


Cold Weather Hits Chicago

Cold Weather Hits Chicago

January 28th, 2019

As many of you may know, Loyola never cancels classes. At least for the 4 years I have been here, not once did any amount of snow or low temperature stop Loyola from holding classes. However, one of the coldest air masses will hit the Midwest this week. The temperature in Chicago is predicted to […]

With a new semester comes a whole new Student Organization Fair! This is a showcase of the student organizations currently active at Loyola in hopes to spark student interests and provide mediums for exploration outside daily academics. I was back again with the e-board of Diminuendo Literary and Arts Magazine. I am currently the AD/PR […]


Last First Day as a Rambler

Last First Day as a Rambler

January 17th, 2019

  How bittersweet, the time has come, where it will officially be my last first day of my undergraduate career. It seems as if just yesterday I was a Freshman entering with no clue how to handle college level classes, making my way to different buildings and commuting almost an hour and half everyday. Also […]

Such a ‘Bler: Sophomore Fall Reflection

January 14th, 2019

Look alive ramblers, SPRING 2019 IS UPON US. With a new year and 14-week adventure beginning, here are a few things this sophomore has taken away from a rollercoaster of a semester: Don’t trust your bi-weekly planning routine. There’s a reason the syllabus is prewritten and read through for specific queries on the first day […]
