Volunteer Opportunities in Chicago

November 22nd, 2014

Hello, Ramblers!  I hope you are as excited as I am as we count down the days to break! This week I have been thinking ahead about next semester, specifically finding a new volunteer opportunity for next semester. Like the majority of students at Loyola, I have volunteered since middle school and view volunteer work as an […]


Tea and Term Papers

November 21st, 2014

Good study spots are realistically not that hard to find. However, when you’re in downtown Chicago, surrounded by options, where do you go? Water Tower campus is only a block from Michigan Avenue, and there are So. Many. Options. One of my favorite places, however, is Argo Tea. There are a few locations (two within […]


Zumba Classes At Loyola

November 21st, 2014

With all of the possibilities for exercise available here at Loyola through the Halas Recreational Center, one is bound to find a method that works for them! I personally began taking weekly Zumba classes, and I absolutely love it. Zumba is a fun way to get fit, especially for people like me who do not […]


Skydiving at iFLY!

Skydiving at iFLY!

November 18th, 2014

Hello again! In continuing my trend of discussing fun things to do, I am going to tell you all of a fun experience a little outside of Chicago. Ever wanted to skydive without paying around 300 dollars? Ever wanted to experience the feeling of free-fall? Ever just wanted to be suspended in the air and […]


Millennium Skates

November 18th, 2014

Since we’ve officially had our first snow of the year, (although realistically that was Halloween) it is beginning to feel more and more like the holidays every day. Although I am a Muslim and don’t officially observe any of the major winter holidays, I still get super excited for them each year. It’s a time […]


Only 13 Days Left!

November 18th, 2014

  13 days or 312 hours or 18,720 minutes or 1,123,200 seconds… until our priority deadline: December 1st! That means you better request your transcripts, test scores (ACT or SAT), and letters of recommendation right away so schools, counselors, teachers, and testing agencies have time to send it all over to Loyola before our postmark deadline. Also make […]


Science and Industry Museum

Science and Industry Museum

November 16th, 2014

Since the weather is getting even colder (it seriously feels like February over here in Chicago), Chicago exploration must be confined to indoors. What better place to explore indoors than the Museum of Science and Industry! The Museum of Science and Industry is located at 5700 South Lakeshore Drive and they are dedicated to inspiring […]


SafeTrek

November 15th, 2014

It’s not easy to tell your parents that you want to move to Chicago. Mine, at least, were extremely freaked out by the fact that I was moving from my safe little town of Lincoln, Nebraska to the vast city life of Chicago. It’s scary and unknown, and parents realize that they cannot completely protect […]


Seeking Some Birds at Montrose Harbor

November 13th, 2014

Hello again! Hope everyone is staying warm and cozy. The weather here in Chicago has been filled with snow, rain, hail, wind, and 30 degree temperatures. Just when you think that this post may be about sitting next to a fireplace with a warm cup of hot chocolate, BAMN! It’s not that kind of post! […]


Parents’ role in the college application process

November 13th, 2014

It’s mid-fall, and high school seniors all over the country are working on their college applications. As a parent, what can you do to support your son or daughter in this process? Continue to be supportive. Some of you have been through this already with an older child, but if this is your first time […]
