Everyone has their own study techniques and ways to understand material to prepare for an exam or quiz. When I first started off college, I thought I was going to be fine with the way I studied for things like I have done before in high school. I was a good student with good grades; […]


Relax and Breathe

Relax and Breathe

October 16th, 2014

The best place on the Lake Shore Loyola Campus to relax, reflect, and take a deep breath would be to sit on the ledge facing the lake (behind the IC or chapel).

October 9th, 2014

As a college student, there is two distinguishing points that define one another: either you dorm on campus or you commute.

Coffee on the go

Coffee on the go

October 3rd, 2014

If someone would have told me what a workout it would be to commute from my hometown to Loyola, I would have chosen to commute a long time ago!  (jk, living on campus is much more fun!).  Apart from the fact that my commute is only a two and a half hour commute, I have […]
