Welcome Back Ramblers!

Welcome Back Ramblers!

January 16th, 2018

It’s Tuesday, January 16th. There is a mini-blizzard seen outside the classroom, the smell of hot coffee beckons (waiting to be drunk), the sound of crunching snow and slosh of slush being stepped on by heavy duty boots. With all this, we are back to work. Welcome back Ramblers to Spring semester! Today, I am […]


What Happens in Study Abroad…

What Happens in Study Abroad…

December 22nd, 2017

… Stays with you forever.   It feels like months ago, or maybe just yesterday, or maybe even that I dreamed it, but finals week was just last week. Less than seven days ago I was in Rome, typing furiously on my last paper due and studying harder for my upcoming tests. I was mentally […]


Cheers to a Great Semester!

Cheers to a Great Semester!

December 8th, 2017

Just like that, Fall 2017 is done. It is so remarkable and surprising that time went by so fast- I still remember the first day of class in August so vividly! Especially since Chicago has not received much snow yet, it doesn’t feel like Winter Break is approaching yet. Anyways, it is good to end […]


Rome is Home

Rome is Home

December 5th, 2017

Well, it’s wild. I only have two more weeks here. Where in the world did the time go? I can’t believe it. I feel like just last week we landed, just yesterday I was in Greece for Fall Break, just an hour ago it was summer. And now the clock is ticking, everyone is preparing […]


What to Pack: Rome, part 2

What to Pack: Rome, part 2

November 29th, 2017

I am not sure how useful this will be, given that there are a lot of other packing lists out there and really packing is an activity of individual choice (or art form), but I thought I should tell you what I think you should do. Of course, again, this list won’t cover everything – […]

On-Campus JFRC Activities

November 20th, 2017

Living in Rome is so much fun, and living in JFRC certainly helps make it so! Whether you go meet a Swiss Guard with Father Al, see St. Ignatius’ rooms where he stayed when he was in Rome, or go on a gelato crawl with the SLA’s, there is always stuff to do if you’re […]


What To Pack: Rome pt 1

What To Pack: Rome pt 1

November 6th, 2017

I’ll dedicate another post to the clothing of what to bring, but I wanted to take some time and talk about non-clothing related things I wish I had brought along with me, or that I brought and have not found much use for. I hope this list is useful to you who will come to […]


Happy Halloween Loyola!

Happy Halloween Loyola!

October 31st, 2017

Whether you want to watch Hocus Pocus as part of a movie marathon with your friends; wear a fun, creative “couples costume” with your significant other; or you want to blast out your “Monster Mixtape” (that plays Monster Mash or Ghostbusters for some reason?) in your dorm/apartment: Halloween has arrived at Loyola! Luckily Loyola has […]


Costs of Study Abroad? Not as much as you imagine

October 6th, 2017

I’m studying abroad for two semesters. The thought of that alone might make people (including me, to be quite honest) shudder for their wallets. I know, I know – “if you’re clasping your wallet so tight, why are you doing it, then?” Well, for a variety of reasons. First, I believe in the power of […]
