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 […]

Coming Home From A Summer Abroad

September 4th, 2013

I’m home! I’m back to my home at Loyola as well as my home in America. I spent the summer abroad in Ghana, Africa. I was in Ghana for two and a half months, both volunteering and studying abroad. I studied through a program called USAC that Loyola partners with to help students go global. […]


Onward to Senior Year!

May 7th, 2013

As cliche as it sounds, I truly cannot believe how fast my college years have gone by.  It seems like just yesterday I was moving into Regis Hall and making friends who are still my close friends today.  There are so many great memories I have had these past three years, but here are a […]

ANZAC Day 2013

April 29th, 2013

April 25th, or ANZAC Day (Australian New Zealand Army Corps), is a day of big celebration here in Australia. It is a day to remember the group of armed forces from both Australia and New Zealand who served during WWI. Australian culture is particularly proud of this day– school is cancelled, businesses close early, and all […]

Koalas and Kangaroos and Devils, Oh My!

Easter break gave me my first real opportunity to travel and see what Australia has to offer beyond Melbourne and Victoria. I never in my life thought I would get to see Tasmania, but I did and it was beyond beautiful. I’ve been lucky enough to have met friends here at school that have the […]

The Game of Footy

March 27th, 2013

Footy – it’s a big deal. I finally got the opportunity to see my first match, as the season here is just starting to kick off. This match was just a scrimmage at my school in preparation for the upcoming games, but it was still great fun. In my opinion, the game resembled something between […]

This week past week, I got the amazing experience of visiting Lorne, Australia. Lorne is a beach town about three hours from where I am staying in Melbourne. My host university set up this trip for all the international students, as a chance for us to meet each other as well as settle into Australian […]


Hello from Melbourne, Australia

Hello from Melbourne, Australia

March 3rd, 2013

After 31 hours of traveling, I’m finally here! The feeling is incredible. I’ve worked for months making sure I was prepared by reading books, filling out paperwork and visiting advisors. As I stepped out of the airport I knew it was finally time for the pay off! The first and biggest difference I noticed about […]
