Baby I’m Back!

Baby I’m Back!

September 10th, 2016

This time last year I was scared and truthfully pretty unsure about whether I had made the right decision in coming to Loyola. A year later I’m sitting here writing to you and loving my life. It’s crazy how different things are already as a sophomore, I couldn’t wait to come back this year and […]


Summer is Coming

Summer is Coming

April 28th, 2016

  As we wrap up the projects and exams and say goodbye to our freshman year, It’s interesting to look back and see just how much we’ve changed over the last nine months. In August I was eighteen and anxious. I started this year without any friends, I started this year with a roommate, I […]

10 Things I Did Not Expect About Loyola

April 22nd, 2016

    Every school is different, and for the incoming college freshman, they’re all unknown territory. Now you can read any number of student testimonials and pictures, but you’ll never actually know till you’re there. So why should you read my list? Well, because you still want to know what you’re getting yourself into before […]


A Night at the Museum of Contemporary Art

A Night at the Museum of Contemporary Art

April 16th, 2016

Glamorous gowns, high heels, makeup, hairspray. Last Saturday, my friends, aka sisters, and I spent hours getting all dressed up, then danced the night away at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) for our sorority’s annual formal. This was my first time to attend a social event held at a museum, and it was an […]


On the Eve of Initiation

On the Eve of Initiation

April 7th, 2016

    As I get ready to become a fully initiated, real life, Chi Omega, I wanted to take the time to reflect on what the past two months have been like for me as a new member. Joining Greek Life at Loyola was not something that I had ever really intended to do. As […]


Multicultural Overnight

Multicultural Overnight

March 30th, 2016

I decided to be an overnight host again for a Multicultural Overnight event. This was a little different from a previous overnight event I did. This Multicultural Overnight event focused on having high school students who identify themselves as people of color come together and meet other Loyola students who are students of color in order to feel […]

What Loyola’s Doing Over Spring Break

What Loyola’s Doing Over Spring Break

March 4th, 2016

As usual, I’m going to be honest with you folks – Mexican Beach Parties made of hordes of college kids like you see in movies like 22 Jump Street do happen. Some of my friends who go to other schools around the country are part of groups that flock by the hundreds, and they take […]


The Valentine’s Day Monologues

The Valentine’s Day Monologues

February 19th, 2016

When we hear “V-Day,” most of us think of Valentine’s Day. However, in a very modern and relevant way, it means much more than bouquets of roses and candy hearts. V-Day also signifies a global movement to end violence against women and girls. On February 12 and 13, Loyola held its annual Vagina Monologues event. […]

Academic Fraternities: Eta Sigma Phi the Iota Kappa Chapter

February 19th, 2016

It’s the end of your senior year and most of your friends have probably been talking about college and what experiences they want to have when they get there. Often romanticized in movies, Sorority and Fraternity life rule the conversations about college. Here at Loyola, we have both social and academic Greek Life! If you’re an […]
