Winter Festivities at Loyola

Winter Festivities at Loyola

November 29th, 2018

Loyola loves a good celebration. And we also love winter! So that’s why, every year, we set up a big ol’ holiday tree in the middle of our Damen student center. Yes, we are a religious school in name, so it’s called a Christmas tree and it gets blessed, but it’s mostly there for the […]


Campus Culture: What are the clubs like?

Campus Culture: What are the clubs like?

November 29th, 2018

Loyola’s students can be described as highly-involved, passionate people who are always doing something! Well, to be honest, some students aren’t about that life. Some people have their core group of friends they stuck with since high school, or from freshman year, and they go to classes, and that’s it. Not being engaged with the […]


Chicago and the Holiday Season

Chicago and the Holiday Season

November 22nd, 2018

Love to get a little festive, get jingly with it? Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, there’s a thousand and one ways to light up the dark nights here in Chicago and feel the cheer and good vibes of the holiday season. My favorite? The Holiday Train! That’s ride, for the price of one ride […]


A Series of Firsts: My First Thanksgiving in the U.S.

November 22nd, 2018

After a couple of months of being away from home, having passed my first midterms season (successfully, thankfully), and wearing many, MANY layers to keep warm in the cold Chicago weather, my homesickness levels had hit an all-time high. I couldn’t concentrate in my school work, as I kept thinking in how much I missed […]


Such a ‘Bler: My First Basketball Game (ever)

Such a ‘Bler: My First Basketball Game (ever)

November 13th, 2018

It’s embarrassing to confess as a sophomore that my first Loyola basketball game was last Friday. Sure, I watched the NCAA last year, but well, online or through a TV. Times never really aligned I guess, but after missing the first game of the season on Tuesday, I was determined. Here’s what I’ve learnt: If […]

Hello, everybody! My name is Francesca Marchese González, and I am an international student from Guatemala. I am one of the new bloggers for Undergraduate Admissions Office, and I am really excited to share a little bit about my Loyola experience with you! Before getting into the logistics of this post, I’ll tell you a […]

President’s Ball 2018

President’s Ball 2018

November 6th, 2018

I had a friend who studied abroad in Vienna this past spring, and she went to a real European old, fancy ball, complete with formal dances that every Austrian person had been learning in school since they were young, and every foreign person had learned a few weeks before so that they wouldn’t embarrass themselves. […]


Cheer for Ol’ Loyola

Cheer for Ol’ Loyola

November 1st, 2018

I have to say, I’m absolutely in love with this campus. I enjoyed my study abroad experiences in both Beijing and Rome, but neither of the campuses were as absolutely gorgeous as our Lake Shore Campus. (When I left Beijing, the campus was so torn up due to construction a normal five minute walk to […]


Alpha Sigma Who?

Alpha Sigma Who?

October 14th, 2018

There’s lots to do at Loyola, from classes to take to organizations to join. One of the ones I’m involved in is Alpha Sigma Nu, the world’s one and only Honors Society exclusively at Jesuit universities around the world. We have a chapter at every Jesuit university in the USA, plus two in Canada, one […]
