Language Fairs, Diversity, and Rogers Park Living

October 27th, 2014

by Samantha Eddmeiri

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 […]

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 […]

Connections to the Community

October 27th, 2014

by Christopher Lam

Being a student at Loyola does not mean that you strictly focus on academics alone. With the u-pass (which gives you unlimited access on the CTA- a privilege for college students), you along with your friends can explore the city of Chicago at no cost through public transportation.

Have you met Dr. Binaku? Katrina Binaku, also known as Dr. Binaku, graduated last spring from Loyola University Chicago and received her PhD in Chemistry.  She was my General Chemistry Teacher Assistant freshman year.  She was always very helpful and nice, and I was lucky enough to bump into her last week.  She told me […]

Studying Abroad in ROMA

Studying Abroad in ROMA

October 26th, 2014

by Therese Bennett

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

October 25th, 2014

by Brienne Lubor

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 […]

Building Community Within Your Residence Hall Floor

October 25th, 2014

by Natalie Pantelis

As well as having a good relationship with your roommate, it is also important to build a community within the floor of the residence hall that you live in. Where you might not be living in one room as these people, they are your neighbors and you are living in close quarters with all them. […]

by Stephanie Rodriguez

You’re the first one to go to college and you’re clueless, but it’s OK.   I, too, am a first generation student at Loyola University Chicago.  I am also an only child and I did not have any close relatives attending college in 2010; it was difficult, but I did it!  Here are some tips that […]

Midnight Madness

Midnight Madness

October 25th, 2014

by Samantha Eddmeiri

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 […]
