Two Years Left!?!

Two Years Left!?!

April 29th, 2016

Do you think high school went fast? You’re in for a ride because college goes by much faster. I remember sitting in a classroom for seven hours a day with one lunch break in high school wondering if the day would go by any faster. Every year after that initial freshman year, the day went by more […]


Summer is Coming

Summer is Coming

April 28th, 2016

  As we wrap up the projects and exams and say goodbye to our freshman year, It’s interesting to look back and see just how much we’ve changed over the last nine months. In August I was eighteen and anxious. I started this year without any friends, I started this year with a roommate, I […]


Making Use of Time 101

Making Use of Time 101

April 27th, 2016

Sometimes we become so caught up on what we HAVE to do, rather than what we CAN do. Don’t let a list of plans overwhelm you from doing it. I have learned to make use of my time by not overworking myself nor wasting my time. This doesn’t necessarily have to be school related, but in […]


Loyola’s Multicultural Greek Council

Loyola’s Multicultural Greek Council

April 26th, 2016

It seems like every American knows about sororities and fraternities, and the not-always-positive image of them that exists because of movies like Neighbors and Legally Blonde. People see them as white, full of, well, the type of people whose appropriate adjectives I can’t type in my position as an employee for my school. Of course, most […]


Sophomore Year Reflections

April 22nd, 2016

A big part of the Jesuit community involves reflection. We use reflection as a tool to tap into our past life in order to improve our future lives. Reflection is something highly valued in the Loyola Community, so I’ll take this chance to share my reflections with you as a fellow student. As I’ve mentioned before, I […]


Spring Finals Breakfast

Spring Finals Breakfast

April 20th, 2016

Finals are approaching faster than it may seem, and as nerve wracking that sounds, the bright side is that summer break is almost here! You should be preparing for finals because you’re going to have a lot of reviewing to do, depending on how many exams you have, whether they’re cumulative or not, and the […]


Take a Walk Down Devon Avenue

Take a Walk Down Devon Avenue

April 13th, 2016

Part of the Loyola Experience is to go and explore the community! Rogers Park is known to be one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Chicago. A particular street you should explore is Devon Avenue. If you take the 155 bus down to Kedzie, you will be in the Devon area, which consists of Indian […]

UNIV 101 Class

The first year seminar, UNIV 101, is a graduation requirement for all incoming first year students during their first semester. The course is designed to provide a comprehensive extended orientation that is holistic in nature and focuses on academic success and students’ transition to college. Through interactive sessions, students will gain an understanding of Loyola […]


Deciding on What to Bring to College

Deciding on What to Bring to College

April 3rd, 2016

Summer is approaching and, chances are, you’re probably wondering about what to bring to college. In my opinion, less is more. Your decisions will depend on where you live and who your room mate is. Most freshman residence halls do NOT allow big furniture in the dorms and will turn that item away even if […]


How Big Political Decisions Can Impact Our Lives

How Big Political Decisions Can Impact Our Lives

April 1st, 2016

On February 19, Governor Bruce Rauner of Illinois, vetoed Senate Bill 2043, which included an appropriation of $721 million for the Monetary Award Program (MAP) and community colleges programs. Though a supporter of MAP Grants, Governor Rauner said in his veto that “SB 2043 would exacerbate our budget and cash flow deficits.” Last year, legislators […]
