LUC Fun Run

LUC Fun Run

April 12th, 2015

Saturday, April 11, marked the fourth annual LUC Fun Run, which aims to establish a campus event that is ad majorem Dei gloriam and generates school pride at Loyola, while simultaneously reminding us that, when we refer to “our neighbors,” the meaning should encompass not just those near to us and like ourselves, but also […]


Our Own Garden in the City

Our Own Garden in the City

March 31st, 2015

On Saturday, I volunteered for Loyola’s Urban Agriculture Program at the greenhouse in the Institute of Environmental Sustainability (IES). The program promotes developing sustainable local food systems. It aims to educate Loyola students and faculty, supply products for the various local food-related programs and organizations, as well as engage community members in the urban agriculture […]


My First ABI Trip

My First ABI Trip

March 12th, 2015

  Over spring break, I joined ten students and two graduate student leaders on an Alternative Break Immersion (ABI) trip to small town Mount Vernon, Kentucky. We filled two vans and traveled side by side for eight hours, driving south, past the Mason Dixie line. The program I attended was set up in collaboration with […]


Making the Pope Proud: Panini Distribution at the Vatican

February 13th, 2015

Every Friday night at 8pm in the lobby of the John Felice Rome Center a group of about 20 students meet Student Life Assistant Pedro for panini distribution. We head over to Vatican City and distribute food to the homeless. For the last two weeks I’ve tagged along and have loved participating in this JFRC […]


Extra, Extra, Read All About It

January 23rd, 2015

It is always fantastic to stay active within your community by doing extracurricular activities. They keep your day productive and you get to have many amazing experiences within the club (activities and events) and be able to meet new people. At Loyola, I am part of two clubs/groups: AMSA (American Medical Student Association) and VASA […]


Service to the Community

Service to the Community

January 19th, 2015

To some, community service may be something not done very often; to others, it has become a big part of their life to help others.  For me, I love to volunteer my time at my local hospital, Swedish Covenant. Since freshman year of high school, I have dedicated my summer, days off of school (full and half-days), […]


Felines and Canines Animal Shelter

Felines and Canines Animal Shelter

November 9th, 2014

Meet Kevin, a one-year-old gray tabby from Felines and Canines Animal Shelter, located a few blocks away from campus on Clark and Devon.  When my friend Jen and I first visited Felines and Canines Animal Shelter, he left his lookout spot in a sunny window and approached us cautiously.  After a while, he was extremely […]


Without A Home – Street Dogs of Santiago, Chile – Joey Filer

July 9th, 2014

Hey Ramblers! Check out this documentary I made for my summer class COMM 373: Digital Storytelling Abroad in Santiago, Chile.  CAUTION: Some of the images in the video may be disturbing to some viewers. It’s about the wild dog problem (there are over 250,000 street dog’s in the nation’s capital alone).  It was an unbelievable […]


UNICEF of Loyola

UNICEF of Loyola

January 23rd, 2014

DISCLAIMER: This blog post is a shameless promotion of a truly amazing on-campus organization in which I happened to be a member. The Organization Fair is quickly approaching, and many undergraduates at Loyola are looking for new opportunities and activities.  Whether a student is looking for something he or she truly believes in, or simply […]


Volunteer!

November 20th, 2013

One of my favorite things about attending a Jesuit institution is it’s important value, “service to others.”  It seems like there are infinite volunteer opportunities at Loyola, whether they be posted online or posted on bulletin boards throughout the many buildings.  Volunteering has always been a huge part of my life, so I was excited […]
