Some Tricks, But Mostly Treats

October 31st, 2014

GUYS, IT’S HALLOWEEN! Bring on the werewolves, last minute costumes, and pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING. This is my first Halloween in Chicago, and I am beyond excited for the new experience. Realistically all that I’ll do is sit in my dorm room drinking some cider from Engrained while watching a movie, but hey. It’s the pumpkin […]


Madonna della Strada

Madonna della Strada

October 30th, 2014

A recent poll by Best College Reviews named Loyola’s Madonna della Strada (MDS) one of the most beautiful campus chapels nationwide: “The Madonna Della Strada is a modern cathedral built for the Jesuit district at the Loyola University in Chicago, Illinois. The enchanting waters of Lake Michigan wave just a few feet from the white […]


Stumbling into Italy?

Stumbling into Italy?

October 29th, 2014

Writing about my travels abroad in my last post really made me miss Rome. And since I could not immediately get on a plane and fly there, I decided to search for a little piece of Rome in Chicago. So where can I find a place to relive my memories? Eataly of course! Eataly is […]


Language Fairs, Diversity, and Rogers Park Living

October 27th, 2014

Did you know that Rogers Park is one of the most ethnically diverse places in the entire world? Here at Loyola, we live among people from all different ethnic backgrounds and heritages. Personally, this was one of the reasons Loyola was so attractive to me, I could make friends and meet people who had completely […]


TNT

October 27th, 2014

Welcome to TNT, or Targeting New Transitions, where fifty Loyola students and I work as academic coaches on Saturday mornings.  We start at 8:45 AM in the Rambler Room, prepping our tables, reviewing worksheets, and organizing take-home folders for our high school students.  By 9 AM, my team and I are prepared for the TNT […]


Studying Abroad in ROMA

Studying Abroad in ROMA

October 26th, 2014

If I had to pick one of my favorite experiences thus far at Loyola, the first thing that comes to mind is the summer I spent in Rome. As a Biology student, going abroad for a full semester was out of the question due to the demand of classes and work load that I needed […]


Weekend with Bros

Weekend with Bros

October 25th, 2014

Never was I more excited for a weekend than for this one.  My brothers Sam and Jack called earlier this week with a very exciting question. Sam asked, “Jack and I really want to visit you!  Does this weekend work?” “Is that even a question?  Yes of course!” I replied.  I was so enthusiastic to […]


Midnight Madness

Midnight Madness

October 25th, 2014

The first thing I was told to do by my Orientation Leader as an incoming freshman was to go to the annual “Midnight Madness” event. I brushed off the statement at the time, as they explained that it was a big event with the intent of introducing everyone to both the men’s and women’s basketball […]


Striving to Help Others

Striving to Help Others

October 23rd, 2014

Hi again! Here at Loyola, community, both on and off campus, is something that is super important. At Loyola each and every student comes to understand that by helping others, lives can be changed. In turn, your life as a student will be changed as well. It is always fun to go downtown and participate […]


Campus Beauty

Campus Beauty

October 23rd, 2014

The Loyola Lakeshore campus is so scenic and beautiful, even as the seasons now change from summer to fall. Everyday as I walk around the campus, there is so much color and variety in the trees and flowers. Workers work daily to maintain its beauty. In front of the IC and quad, there are now […]
