Plan Ahead with J-Term

Plan Ahead with J-Term

September 28th, 2016

  Something quite unique at Loyola is the J-term. What is the J-term? January term is an condensed, intensive, two-week session. Courses are available online, on campus, and abroad to give you a variety of options to make the most out of your winter break. Get ahead and graduate early as J-term is one of […]


Baby I’m Back!

Baby I’m Back!

September 10th, 2016

This time last year I was scared and truthfully pretty unsure about whether I had made the right decision in coming to Loyola. A year later I’m sitting here writing to you and loving my life. It’s crazy how different things are already as a sophomore, I couldn’t wait to come back this year and […]


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 […]


Registering For Classes – What’s that like?

Registering For Classes – What’s that like?

April 19th, 2016

One of the biggest aspect of colleges is class. Unexpected, right? Not nearly so much as you would think. There are also other essential components to the college experience, but class is pretty high up there on the list, definitely a tie for first with whatever you love. After all, it’s kind of the reason […]


Being an Out-of-State Student at LUC

Being an Out-of-State Student at LUC

April 12th, 2016

In looking at colleges, you might have considered a public school what with reciprocal or in-state tuition, compared to a private school like Loyola. That was definitely the pull for me away from Loyola, but all the other things brought me back! I’m from Minnesota. But here at Loyola, I have friends from California, Pennsylvania, […]


Picking a College

Picking a College

April 5th, 2016

Wow, a hefty topic. Crazy how big the decision is, too. I don’t mean to scare you. But I do want to remind you that decisions are due May 1, and if you haven’t started thinking about what you want to do, well… Now is the time. So that’s where I come in! As a […]


Multicultural Overnight

Multicultural Overnight

March 30th, 2016

I decided to be an overnight host again for a Multicultural Overnight event. This was a little different from a previous overnight event I did. This Multicultural Overnight event focused on having high school students who identify themselves as people of color come together and meet other Loyola students who are students of color in order to feel […]


Deposit Paid and Forms Signed: Now What?

Deposit Paid and Forms Signed: Now What?

March 29th, 2016

Well done, you. So you’ve done everything the UAO asked you to do – took the placement tests, promised to keep doing good senior year (right?), turned in your money, signed away your life. Now all there’s left to do is… what? Chances are, you’re going to go into this whole process without knowing where […]


Decision Time

March 27th, 2016

You’ve made it. You’re nearly finished with your senior year of high school and you can’t wait to take the next steps toward your future in college. College…that’s the tough part isn’t it? By this point you’re probably dizzy from all the campuses you’ve toured and the pile of acceptance letters at you’ve accumulated. Now […]

Loyola 360 Virtual Tour – Do it!

March 17th, 2016

You may or may not have noticed, but right above the link to click on these blogs on the Undergraduate Admissions Page is a link to Loyola’s Virtual Tour.  I can’t speak enough of how awesome this is! I’m not a Chicago local – in fact, the drive from where I live in Minnesota is […]
