A 30°F “Spring”

A 30°F “Spring”

March 25th, 2015

  Last Friday, March 20, marked the first day of Spring 2015, however, that didn’t stop Chicago from snowing just three days later. With fewer than six weeks of classes remaining until Loyola officially starts summer, it is hard to stay focused when all you can do is stare at the pile of snow outside […]


March 20th, 2015

  From the beginning of the spring semester, there have been things within the family that have significantly affected my academic performance. I was struggling to keep a focused mindset in my classes and I found myself lost in every aspect. After a month passed, I decided to go to my academic adviser for support and […]

Feeling Cultured

Feeling Cultured

March 19th, 2015

This past Sunday, I attended my first opera, Lyric Opera’s production of composer Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s “The Passenger.” Attending the production fulfills a requirement for my Honors class and I’ll admit, going to see an opera is not something I would have otherwise thought to put on my weekend schedule. As it turns out, having “a […]

Overcoming Struggles and Challenges

Overcoming Struggles and Challenges

March 13th, 2015

  From the start of winter break to present day, there have been some things that have occurred within the family that have considerably impacted the way I performed in school. I have dealt with the physical and emotional struggles that come with it; some days, I feel so alone and helpless. Sometimes I have […]

Fellowship – what is it?

March 13th, 2015

I am here to tell you a little bit more about what a fellowship is because frankly, I would have liked to read or find out what it entailed.  I first heard about a fellowship when I watched “The Imitation Game.”  Yes, the movie.  I know it just came out, but it wasn’t until this […]

9 Loyola Myths

March 10th, 2015

  Over the past 3 years in admission, I have noticed there are A LOT of misconceptions about Loyola University Chicago. I am going to use my blog this week to set the record straight. Here are what I consider to be the top 9 Loyola myths: We are not the same school as Loyola […]

Beneficial Bulletin Boards

March 1st, 2015

The other week, I met with my professor to go over some exam questions.  I got to LSB super early because it was super cold that day and you know that the CTA loves to delay the brown line for whatever reason.  I, literally, ran to her office only to find out that our meeting […]

Midterm Week

February 28th, 2015

Finally, midterm week has ended and classes for the second semester are halfway done. For some, including myself, a lot of stress and cramming/studying are over for now; so much has been done to prepare for this week: the countless “all-nighters”, the student study group sessions, and more. As my favorite teacher, Dr. Helgott, always […]

Taking the Stage–Roman Style

February 26th, 2015

Well, at least taking a stage that happens to be in Rome. This semester a class of about 20 JFRC students (including myself) have decided to “take the stage” and learn a thing or two about the world of theater. Beginning Acting is taught by professor Eric Nicholson who is no stranger to the drama […]
