Plan Ahead with J-Term

Plan Ahead with J-Term

September 28th, 2016

  Something quite unique at Loyola is the J-term. What is the J-term? January term is an condensed, intensive, two-week session. Courses are available online, on campus, and abroad to give you a variety of options to make the most out of your winter break. Get ahead and graduate early as J-term is one of […]


“I Should Probably Study Since I Have An Exam This Week…” – Rambler

“I Should Probably Study Since I Have An Exam This Week…” – Rambler

September 19th, 2016

You casually come back to class after a relaxing weekend and remember you had some exams this week. I think its best if you studied… but what is studying without a beautiful view and concentration? Its so important to know that the Information Commons Center is not the ONLY place to study. It will most […]


To Job or Not To Job

To Job or Not To Job

September 18th, 2016

  Loyola can sometimes seem to have a reputation as being a posh private university, and while it’s true, we are a private university, not all of us have super “posh” backgrounds. Finances are a real issue that most Loyola students deal with everyday whether they talk about it or not. So when is the […]


Baby I’m Back!

Baby I’m Back!

September 10th, 2016

This time last year I was scared and truthfully pretty unsure about whether I had made the right decision in coming to Loyola. A year later I’m sitting here writing to you and loving my life. It’s crazy how different things are already as a sophomore, I couldn’t wait to come back this year and […]


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 […]


Finals are Approaching!

Finals are Approaching!

April 25th, 2016

Isn’t it surprising how fast this semester was and how finals was creeping behind your back the whole time, ready to lunge at you unexpectedly? Yes. This is what it feels like. Finals week will begin next week, starting from Monday, May 2, to Saturday, May 7. Since I am taking 18 credit hours of […]


Dance, Eat, Museum, Repeat

Dance, Eat, Museum, Repeat

April 24th, 2016

One of the perks of living with two seniors is getting to share in the joy of end of semester celebrations. As far as senior events go, Damen Ball has got to be one of the most exciting. This dance comes at the end of the spring semester each year as a sort of ‘senior […]
