Don’t Miss Out on the Good Eats at Engrained Cafe

Don’t Miss Out on the Good Eats at Engrained Cafe

October 31st, 2014

My freshman year at Loyola I made the mistake of only ever ordering coffee at Engrained. Don’t get me wrong the coffee is great, but Engrained is so much more than a coffee shop. With offerings ranging from a Loaded Grilled Cheese to the best cake balls you’ll ever eat, you need to explore the […]


Loyola Dining

Probably one of the most important factors in choosing a university to attend is knowing the quality of the food served on campus. Here at Loyola, there are many different options for food on campus. In this post, I will be discussing those different options and the quality of food served. Although sometimes you may […]


10th Floor of Mundelien

October 29th, 2014

This floor can be considered my favorite floor because it is essentially the floor of music. My music class is up there and there are several piano rooms in which I have access to. Every morning, people can hear others sing, play stringed and aero phonic instruments, and more of all different genres ranging from […]


Language Fairs, Diversity, and Rogers Park Living

October 27th, 2014

Did you know that Rogers Park is one of the most ethnically diverse places in the entire world? Here at Loyola, we live among people from all different ethnic backgrounds and heritages. Personally, this was one of the reasons Loyola was so attractive to me, I could make friends and meet people who had completely […]


Building Community Within Your Residence Hall Floor

October 25th, 2014

As well as having a good relationship with your roommate, it is also important to build a community within the floor of the residence hall that you live in. Where you might not be living in one room as these people, they are your neighbors and you are living in close quarters with all them. […]

October 25th, 2014

You’re the first one to go to college and you’re clueless, but it’s OK.   I, too, am a first generation student at Loyola University Chicago.  I am also an only child and I did not have any close relatives attending college in 2010; it was difficult, but I did it!  Here are some tips that […]


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 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.

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 […]
