So, if you’re in the mood for intellectual inspiration, you’ll want to check out our very own university’s version of TED talks, called IGGY Talks, organized by Loyola’s National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH), an honorary organization that represents the top 1% of on-campus […]


The President’s Ball!

November 21st, 2014

I’m back to share another amazing Loyola Experience with you today! Last weekend I went to Loyola’s President’s Ball! The President’s Ball is basically a celebration of the winners of the President’s Medallion! I’ve never gone to this event before, but this year I was ready to give it a try! The event was pretty cool […]


Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday

November 20th, 2014

With less than a week to go before Thanksgiving and not even a month remaining until the winter break, this feels like the perfect time to reflect on my first semester in college, before studying for exams takes over my life. I find it pretty amazing that what started as a nudging self-reminder to count […]


Benefits of Being a Loyola Student

Here at Loyola, students have the privilege of getting more than just a regular college education; they have membership to different places like facilities and get discounts at different stores.

Latin American Student Organization

November 16th, 2014

Did you know that Hispanics are the largest minority at Loyola University Chicago?  Among Loyola’s diverse campus, the student body consists of so many cultures that you’d be surprised!  Freshman year, I was lucky enough to live in the international floor (by luck), and I met so many students from all over the world.  This encouraged me to search for more people […]


Our Jesuit Education

November 16th, 2014

  “We are Chicago’s Jesuit, Catholic University—a diverse community seeking God in all things and working to expand knowledge in the service of humanity through learning, justice, and faith.”   Loyola is a special university, for more reasons than are obvious to a visitor. As a student here I appreciate the ways Loyola incorporates caring […]

You Know You Go to Loyola When…

November 15th, 2014

When you go to the 4th “greenest” school in the nation–the greenest in the Midwest– you learn a thing or two about leading an ecologically responsible life. During your time at Loyola you’re bound to pick up on some environmentally friendly quirks. Here are a few that apply to many students at LUC: Disposable plastic […]


More Cupcake Truck

More Cupcake Truck

November 14th, 2014

One of the most exciting things about the city of Chicago that I’ve noticed so far was the abundance of gourmet cupcakes! Cupcakes can be found everywhere around the city, even just outside the Loyola red line station every Thursday night! In this post, I will be talking about the cupcake truck from More Cupcakes […]


Faith: a strong belief in the doctrines of a religion

Faith: a strong belief in the doctrines of a religion

November 14th, 2014

For several weeks now, I have been contemplating joining a Christian Leadership Community, or CLC. Strictly speaking, I do not deeply identify with any particular religion and, at the moment, am not sure exactly what I am when it comes to religious affiliation, although I wouldn’t classify myself as an ‘atheist.’ Born to a Buddhist […]
