How to Choose the Right High School Classes

July 8th, 2015

  Everyone wants to know the secret recipe of high school classes to earn admission at Loyola, and while there is not one right combination of classes to choose, I am going to share some of my personal advice for making these decisions: How are Honors, AP, or IB Classes perceived by Loyola? It’s always nice […]

You can’t miss the mix of emotions in the faces of the grads […]


Farewell: A Final Reflection of My First Year of College

Farewell: A Final Reflection of My First Year of College

April 29th, 2015

When I was looking for schools, I thought about my future, what kind of person I would become, how I could possibly fit in with everyone, and if the prestige and academic standards were too high for me. Nonetheless, I went with my guts and chose to attend Loyola. Still to this day, I have […]


Time Management

Time Management

April 27th, 2015

Sometimes I am shocked and surprised to realize that one full school year is almost coming to a close. Time, does indeed, fly by quite quickly. For seniors, this is their moment to shine; the countdown to graduation is nearly here. But until then, everyone including myself must stay focused on doing well on the final […]


Recorded Lectures: a love and hate relationship

April 22nd, 2015

I cringe every time a professor tells me that they record his or her lectures.  Why?  Well, at that point, he or she is giving me the chance to not listen.  I am tempted and the struggle is real.  However, I understand why the professors do it.  I really do!  I love hand writing all […]


I See the IC

I See the IC

April 21st, 2015

Finally after the end to the brutal winter weather, the two fountains in front of the IC are now turned on! For some people, this officially marks the beginning of spring/summer with warm weather, vibrant colors of budding flowers, fresh green grass, and bright blue skies. At this point of the school year, the IC […]


Freshman Year Almost Done

Freshman Year Almost Done

April 15th, 2015

There is only less than 3 weeks left of the school year! The finish line is so close yet so far away; although we have less than a month of school left, we still have final papers, projects, and exams to complete.  Sometimes it can be overwhelming and so time-consuming, but things have to be […]


How To Survive Freshman Year

How To Survive Freshman Year

April 13th, 2015

I think it is safe to say that I know enough, as a freshman, that I can give realistic points on how to effectively complete your first year of college here at Loyola. YOU CAN’T DO EVERYTHING ALONE. Sometimes you have to be dependent on others to get the classwork and studying done. Not only do […]


Staying Motivated–The End Is Near!

April 11th, 2015

Hey Ramblers, summer is almost upon us current students! Only two more weeks of class and then finals! Need some inspiration to finish the year off strong? Look no further! In this post, I’ll be discussing how to stay motivated during these last few weeks and how to power through finals with straight A’s! (Hopefully!) […]


How did I forget to register for graduation?

April 6th, 2015

I am excited to graduate, but I forgot to register for graduation.  The irony, like how does that even happen!?  This is what happened.  My biochemistry lab partner has a big family and since we only get 4 tickets per graduate she asked me if I had any extra tickets.  I am an only child, […]
