Coffee on the go

Coffee on the go

October 3rd, 2014

If someone would have told me what a workout it would be to commute from my hometown to Loyola, I would have chosen to commute a long time ago!  (jk, living on campus is much more fun!).  Apart from the fact that my commute is only a two and a half hour commute, I have […]


Benvenuti a Roma

Benvenuti a Roma

October 3rd, 2014

On Monday, the message popped into my inbox. I held my breath. The email’s subject read, “Congratulations.” “Dear Brienne, You have been admitted to the JFRC Rome Summer session.” Thank you, Office of International Programs, for making my week.  Since Monday I haven’t been able to stop daydreaming about Rome.  I’ve been imagining the coliseums, […]

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.

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

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 […]
