Grocery Shopping Around Campus

March 27th, 2015

One major thing students must learn about living on their own in college is how to buy their own groceries! Throughout many people’s lives (including my own) up to college, parents often bought groceries and snacks for us and we never really had to worry about it! Now that we are in college, however, it […]


A 30°F “Spring”

A 30°F “Spring”

March 25th, 2015

  Last Friday, March 20, marked the first day of Spring 2015, however, that didn’t stop Chicago from snowing just three days later. With fewer than six weeks of classes remaining until Loyola officially starts summer, it is hard to stay focused when all you can do is stare at the pile of snow outside […]


DeNobili Late Night Dining

March 25th, 2015

One negative thing about the Loyola dining halls is that two of them, Simpson and Damen, close at only 8 P.M.! Luckily, DeNobili is there to save the day! (Well, rather the night!) It is often that students (like me) become hungry after 8, after all of the dining halls have closed. For times like […]


The Art of Origami

The Art of Origami

March 23rd, 2015

In some of my earlier blog posts, I mentioned that I love to do origami. To me, it is a beautiful art form that anyone can do; it does not need much skill! From one piece of paper, you can make paper animals, planes, shapes, and more. Whenever I am free and have a piece of […]


Spread the love, not the germs

Spread the love, not the germs

March 22nd, 2015

The one thing we all want to avoid the most, but something that none of us can dodge completely, is getting sick in college. When you’re sleeping a few feet away from a roommate, sharing restrooms with an entire hallway, and living among three hundred other co-residents, germs are bound to spread like wildfire. Dr. […]


Improvement

March 20th, 2015

  From the beginning of the spring semester, there have been things within the family that have significantly affected my academic performance. I was struggling to keep a focused mindset in my classes and I found myself lost in every aspect. After a month passed, I decided to go to my academic adviser for support and […]


Feeling Cultured

Feeling Cultured

March 19th, 2015

This past Sunday, I attended my first opera, Lyric Opera’s production of composer Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s “The Passenger.” Attending the production fulfills a requirement for my Honors class and I’ll admit, going to see an opera is not something I would have otherwise thought to put on my weekend schedule. As it turns out, having “a […]


Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias at Loyola!

Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias at Loyola!

March 17th, 2015

Saturday night was epic.  I mean I’m a girl that always cracks up jokes, even when I’m the only laughing time after time.  So for me to see Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias live was beyond perfect!  I am so glad that my boyfriend talked me into buying tickets!  After a crappy week of feeling super sick […]


5 Reasons Why You CANNOT Miss Loyola Weekend

March 16th, 2015

  5 Reasons Why You CANNOT Miss Loyola Weekend: EVERYONE you want to meet will be there. Are you looking to talk to a Chemistry professor, the Director of the Wellness Center, a Campus Ministry Chaplain, Directors of Loyola’s Interdisciplinary or Quinlan Honors Programs, the Dean of the School of Communication? We have faculty, staff, […]


Dream Goals

Dream Goals

March 15th, 2015

There are so many things I want to do in my life. Everyone has their own dreams and aspirations. Sometimes there can be occurrences when those hopes and dreams might seem merely impossible to accomplish. After trying so hard to get to a certain point, at times I find myself lost and surrendered. BUT, I […]
