Why did I CHOOSE to go to college?

Why did I CHOOSE to go to college?

March 9th, 2017

After high school graduation, students are commonly considered as official, educated, and independent people. You can manage your own life now. Your future is up to you. You’re on your own now.  These things are sayings I have been told by family members and my own conscience. It is not to be taken in a condescending […]

Life After College

February 27th, 2017

After some time to self-reflect, I realize that I am in the same boat as you guys. The memories of being nervous and anxious about finding a school are slowly coming back to me.

Why Loyola?

Why Loyola?

February 14th, 2017

Around this time of year, in 2015, I impatiently waited everyday to check the mailbox, to see if there were any college decision letters inside. Each day was full of anxiety and antici…pation. Naturally, the question that crosses a nervous senior’s mind is whether they will get into a college at all. This, I learned, […]

Welcome Future Rambler!

January 26th, 2017

CONGRATULATIONS! I remember when I got my acceptance letter from Loyola in the mail. It was during my winter break in December when I received a huge envelope from the university.  It was thrilling because it was implied that getting an impressive and fancy envelope from Loyola meant getting accepted; there was no need to […]


Let’s Take This Moment to Reflect

December 14th, 2016

Sophomore year, the halfway point of college. After the first semester, I have had so many fun, moving, and meaningful experiences that I will cherish.

To those who are considering going to Loyola…

December 7th, 2016

    (directed toward high school students)   I know that the word “college” may bring a whole bunch of words to mind- independence, adulthood, dorming, friends, hard classes, doctors and professors, and so much more. This list is endless. As a whole, I have talked to many students who appeared to be overwhelmed with […]
