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 […]


10 Things I Did Not Expect About Loyola

10 Things I Did Not Expect About Loyola

April 22nd, 2016

    Every school is different, and for the incoming college freshman, they’re all unknown territory. Now you can read any number of student testimonials and pictures, but you’ll never actually know till you’re there. So why should you read my list? Well, because you still want to know what you’re getting yourself into before […]


Registering For Classes – What’s that like?

Registering For Classes – What’s that like?

April 19th, 2016

One of the biggest aspect of colleges is class. Unexpected, right? Not nearly so much as you would think. There are also other essential components to the college experience, but class is pretty high up there on the list, definitely a tie for first with whatever you love. After all, it’s kind of the reason […]


Summer at Loyola

Summer at Loyola

April 15th, 2016

Although summer usually means a long clean break from school, many students at Loyola choose to spend their time on campus, taking classes online, studying abroad or pursuing an on campus job. This summer is the first summer I’ve decided to spend away from home. I’m working for a Loyola department called Conference Services. In […]


Being an Out-of-State Student at LUC

Being an Out-of-State Student at LUC

April 12th, 2016

In looking at colleges, you might have considered a public school what with reciprocal or in-state tuition, compared to a private school like Loyola. That was definitely the pull for me away from Loyola, but all the other things brought me back! I’m from Minnesota. But here at Loyola, I have friends from California, Pennsylvania, […]
