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, […]

A Short Ramble (no pun intended)

April 2nd, 2015

  35 days until Graduation Day, but no one is counting.  Wow, Class of 2015, we did it!  Guys, it is so hard to not make this a mushy post.  I really don’t want to, but I might have to.  The other day, as I was walking to my Tu/Thur 10 am class, I ran […]

Almost a Sophomore

March 31st, 2015

With just a little over a month left of school, I can say I am almost finished my first year of college. So much has happened here at Loyola. I have created so many memorable experiences, both good and bad. Hopefully when the fall semester begins and I become a sophomore, I will learn from […]

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 […]
