Do you enjoy appreciating different works of art that deal with bigger themes of divine right/absolutism, gender relations, or transgression of traditional social norms?

Why did I CHOOSE to go to college?

Why did I CHOOSE to go to college?

March 9th, 2017

After high school graduation, students are commonly considered as official, educated, and independent people. You can manage your own life now. Your future is up to you. You’re on your own now.  These things are sayings I have been told by family members and my own conscience. It is not to be taken in a condescending […]

After some time to self-reflect, I realize that I am in the same boat as you guys. The memories of being nervous and anxious about finding a school are slowly coming back to me.

Corrected Stereotypes About “The” College Experience

Corrected Stereotypes About “The” College Experience

February 23rd, 2017

  As a first generation student, I had no idea what to expect about college. Other than seeing things in movies and TV shows about college, I had no real idea if those portrayed visions of college were actually true, or excessively overdone. To be honest, as a senior in high school, I had only […]


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?

February 2nd, 2017

2017 thus far, has been a roller-coaster already (and it has only been 32 days into the year!).

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 […]
