Life Lessons from Anthropology 101

December 17th, 2014

Walking into ANTH 101: Human Origins in late August I didn’t have high expectations of the course. I assumed that by attending weekly lectures and studying for exams I would sneak out with an A and some new found knowledge on evolution. Honestly, I didn’t want to be taking this class at all. Walking out […]


Winter Break!

December 15th, 2014

My last final was on Thursday and I was relieved and happy to have finished testing before most of my friends. Nonetheless, I had come back to school the next day to wish my friends good luck on their tests and for the whole day, I was relaxing in a comfy chair enjoying myself watching […]


Semester One: A Synopsis

December 10th, 2014

As the first semester of my college career comes to an end, I’m forced into my brain’s own nostalgic memoir of the fifteen weeks that have passed. I learned a lot and grew up faster than I thought I would have to, which written out sounds cheesy and cliché, but it’s true. Heading into college […]


Finals are HERE!

December 8th, 2014

That long awaited finals week has come where students will get to complete their class course and earn their credit towards graduating. These finals are critical; most professors count the final exam as a considerable portion of the overall grade. In addition, most final exams will be cumulative based on what the professor wants; students […]


The Countdown is On: Winter Break Here We Come

The Countdown is On: Winter Break Here We Come

December 7th, 2014

Tomorrow marks the official start of finals week, which means in 7 days or less Loyola students are free to go home. I for one am forever grateful for the person that decided to give college students an entire month off between fall and spring semesters. Especially after a week of non-stop studying, a stress […]


Finals Week: It is Possible

Finals Week: It is Possible

December 5th, 2014

Finals are no one’s favorite part of the year and I think each semester they sneak up on us a little sooner than we expect. Today marked the last day of classes for the fall semester of 2014. Which means 24 hour quiet hours in the residence halls have started and this weekend will be […]


Winter Break: So Close Yet So Far

Winter Break: So Close Yet So Far

December 2nd, 2014

Now that Thanksgiving weekend is over and we are approaching the final week of fall classes, it is easy to focus on the proximity of Winter Break, forgetting all the responsibilities of the present. Only ten days remain, yet something seems to be blocking my path towards victory: FINALS. As aggravating as they are, final […]


Finals!

December 1st, 2014

Finals are quickly approaching us! Teachers are slowly but surely wrapping up their lessons for the class and students are studying hard in the IC Building and elsewhere. Depending on what class students may have, some finals may be cumulative, just on some certain sections, or may have a project to substitute for a regular […]


Four Hidden Gems on Loyola’s Website

Four Hidden Gems on Loyola’s Website

Schedule Builder Several weeks ago, during the spring course registration period, a wonderful peer advisor told me about an editable schedule builder that features a built-in table that automatically displays separated blocks for class times. Offered in both Word and PDF format, this document comes in handy when scheduling classes and various activities of a […]


Thank You Loyola

Thank You Loyola

November 26th, 2014

Thank you Loyola for choosing me to be a part of your university. You not only brought me closer to my dreams and aspirations to become a doctor, but you have supported me through clubs and organizations and let me find friends who can be considered true, genuine, and life-long. I am still on my […]
