Finals are Approaching!

Finals are Approaching!

April 25th, 2016

Isn’t it surprising how fast this semester was and how finals was creeping behind your back the whole time, ready to lunge at you unexpectedly? Yes. This is what it feels like. Finals week will begin next week, starting from Monday, May 2, to Saturday, May 7. Since I am taking 18 credit hours of […]


Sophomore Year Reflections

April 22nd, 2016

A big part of the Jesuit community involves reflection. We use reflection as a tool to tap into our past life in order to improve our future lives. Reflection is something highly valued in the Loyola Community, so I’ll take this chance to share my reflections with you as a fellow student. As I’ve mentioned before, I […]


Registering For Classes – What’s that like?

Registering For Classes – What’s that like?

April 19th, 2016

One of the biggest aspect of colleges is class. Unexpected, right? Not nearly so much as you would think. There are also other essential components to the college experience, but class is pretty high up there on the list, definitely a tie for first with whatever you love. After all, it’s kind of the reason […]


Committment

Committment

April 18th, 2016

On Saturday, April 16, all Loyola sophomores were invited to celebrate their half-way mark to graduation. It was a fun-filled event with chocolate fountains, photo booths, and good company of close friends. This event also coincided with ‘Week of Excellence’ in which Loyola celebrated the achievements of its students in every realm- research, service, etc. […]


Letting SOC Feed Me for the Week

Letting SOC Feed Me for the Week

April 15th, 2016

Well, technically they only fed me twice. This was a busy week at the School of Communication. In true college student fashion, I took advantage of opportunities for free food, which meant I ended up attending some really special on-campus events. The first was on Monday evening. A networking reception was held for students in […]


Summer at Loyola

Summer at Loyola

April 15th, 2016

Although summer usually means a long clean break from school, many students at Loyola choose to spend their time on campus, taking classes online, studying abroad or pursuing an on campus job. This summer is the first summer I’ve decided to spend away from home. I’m working for a Loyola department called Conference Services. In […]


Being an Out-of-State Student at LUC

Being an Out-of-State Student at LUC

April 12th, 2016

In looking at colleges, you might have considered a public school what with reciprocal or in-state tuition, compared to a private school like Loyola. That was definitely the pull for me away from Loyola, but all the other things brought me back! I’m from Minnesota. But here at Loyola, I have friends from California, Pennsylvania, […]


Picking a College

Picking a College

April 5th, 2016

Wow, a hefty topic. Crazy how big the decision is, too. I don’t mean to scare you. But I do want to remind you that decisions are due May 1, and if you haven’t started thinking about what you want to do, well… Now is the time. So that’s where I come in! As a […]

FYRE

April 1st, 2016

I am part of a learning community at Loyola. There are a variety of learning communities that incoming freshman can join. Students that are in learning communities will have monthly meetings about their learning community. Also, students will live in the same building with their learning community peers to get to know each other.   The learning community I am […]


“Rate My Professor”

“Rate My Professor”

March 30th, 2016

I am sure many of you have heard of the website: www.ratemyprofessor.com and wonder…”how accurate is this?” But for those of you who don’t know what this is, it is a review site which allows college and university students to assign ratings to professors and campuses of American, Canadian, and United Kingdom institutions. These ratings are based on: […]
