Living With A Roommate

Living With A Roommate

October 22nd, 2014

Quite possibly one of the scariest things about starting college is finding out who you will be living with for the next nine months, and whether or not you will get along with them. In this post, I will be discussing how to get along with your roommate, how to be a good roommate yourself, […]


Open House Recap

Open House Recap

October 22nd, 2014

  Open Houses are some of my favorite events of the year. They are simply fantastic, and I’m not just saying them because I coordinate them. Here are my TOP 5 Reasons for LOVING Open House: 1. Reconnecting with prospective students – I absolutely love recognizing students from college fairs and high school visits and […]


What is the Loyola Experience?

October 16th, 2014

If you look at Loyola’s website or see a Loyola ad or receive a printed Loyola brochure, you will likely see this phrase, The Loyola Experience. In truth, I think it is a pretty common phrase that prospective students hear from one university to another—particularly during the admission process—the (fill in the university here) Experience. […]


Relax and Breathe

Relax and Breathe

October 16th, 2014

The best place on the Lake Shore Loyola Campus to relax, reflect, and take a deep breath would be to sit on the ledge facing the lake (behind the IC or chapel). Unlike most schools, Lake Michigan can be considered like our backyard because quite literally, it is. The sound of the waves/water are soothing and […]


Loyola keeps winnin’

October 13th, 2014

It’s difficult to not sound cliche every time I have to answer the question: Why did you choose Loyola?  First, let me take you to 2007.  I remember that year perfectly because I had my list of universities I wanted to apply to.  Loyola was the first one down on the list.  My mother’s good […]


The best project to work on is you.

The best project to work on is you.

October 8th, 2014

I do not know how I would’ve gotten through college without my best friends, coffee, and Halas.  Halas, Loyola’s exquisite Recreation Center, is pretty much my second home.  I remember walking in as a freshman, before all of the construction, and waiting in line for half an hour for Zumba class.  Yes, it got crowded […]

This year we will be offering two Fall Open Houses on Saturday, October 18th and Saturday and Saturday, November 8th on our Lake Shore Campus for High School Seniors, High School […]


What I Learned Freshman Year

What I Learned Freshman Year

October 3rd, 2014

Moving away to college is one of the most intimidating, exciting, nerve-racking adventures you will ever have. There are so many wonderful opportunities to lose yourself in pure awe of Chicago, find yourself while taking challenging classes, and being yourself in every experience. But I hate to break it to you, it’s not all sunshine […]


First Step in the Right Direction: Loyola 360 Retreat

First Step in the Right Direction: Loyola 360 Retreat

October 3rd, 2014

Back in July, after browsing through the different retreats that Loyola offers to first year students, I signed up for Loyola 360—in the hope of making new friends, as well as to take advantage of an opportunity to get to know Loyola’s Ecology Campus. As the retreat weekend approached, I looked forward to the challenge […]


Advice from Current Ramblers

Advice from Current Ramblers

September 23rd, 2014

  The start of the Fall semester is always my favorite time of year – the campus is buzzing with energy as we welcome the students back after a quiet summer. This year the student workers of the Undergraduate Admission Office decided to share their application and college selection advice for prospective students: “Always keep an […]
