Why Loyola?

Why Loyola?

February 14th, 2017

Around this time of year, in 2015, I impatiently waited everyday to check the mailbox, to see if there were any college decision letters inside. Each day was full of anxiety and antici…pation. Naturally, the question that crosses a nervous senior’s mind is whether they will get into a college at all. This, I learned, […]


How Do I Fit In?

How Do I Fit In?

February 2nd, 2017

2017 thus far, has been a roller-coaster already (and it has only been 32 days into the year!). Whether it has been the effect of the start of new classes in the semester or the new presidential transition or other things, I think it is agreeable that last month has been quite interesting. Identity is […]


Let’s Not Repeat Fall Semester…

Let’s Not Repeat Fall Semester…

January 30th, 2017

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 […]


Welcome Future Rambler!

Welcome Future Rambler!

January 26th, 2017

CONGRATULATIONS! I remember when I got my acceptance letter from Loyola in the mail. It was during my winter break in December when I received a huge envelope from the university.  It was thrilling because it was implied that getting an impressive and fancy envelope from Loyola meant getting accepted; there was no need to […]


Why I chose the Rambler Life

Why I chose the Rambler Life

January 23rd, 2017

I guess I should say the Rambler life chose me… but it was definitely the best decision I’ve made. I am also not just saying this because I go to Loyola, or else I would have not been here! I really wanted to go to Loyola all throughout high school and I don’t doubt that one […]


Let’s Take This Moment to Reflect

December 14th, 2016

Sophomore year, the halfway point of college. After the first semester, I have had so many fun, moving, and meaningful experiences that I will cherish. From Peer Advising, to being a Kuya in Kapwa, to studying abroad in the summer; when my parents told me that college was the peak of their educational career, they […]

Fall Semester Final’s Breakfast

December 7th, 2016

  Finals are approaching faster than it may seem, and as nerve wracking that sounds, the bright side is that winter break is almost here! You should be preparing for finals because you’re going to have a lot of reviewing to do, depending on how many exams you have, whether they’re cumulative or not, and […]


To those who are considering going to Loyola…

To those who are considering going to Loyola…

December 7th, 2016

    (directed toward high school students)   I know that the word “college” may bring a whole bunch of words to mind- independence, adulthood, dorming, friends, hard classes, doctors and professors, and so much more. This list is endless. As a whole, I have talked to many students who appeared to be overwhelmed with […]

Loyola’s Celebrities: Sister Jean and Tivo

Loyola’s Celebrities: Sister Jean and Tivo

November 29th, 2016

When you ask a Loyola student of what is iconic of our campus, many students will respond with Sister Jean or Tivo. Both are friendly, approachable, and know how to make your day so much better! During my freshman year, I was introduced to both of them. And, like so many other students, I felt […]
