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

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 […]

  In light of the recent typhoon in the Philippines, UNICEF of Loyola decided to donate the proceeds of Loyola’s Best Dance Crew to crisis relief.  The storm was considered one of the strongest on record, leaving a massive path of destruction in its wake and an estimated 10,000 deaths.  UNICEF is working globally to […]

For those of you who haven’t heard, Christmas on Campus is back for another year at Loyola.  It is an annual campus-wide Christmas event that aims to serve the children in the Chicago area.  Clubs and organizations volunteer to sponsor activity tables in Gentile Area, while individual Loyola […]
