Emergency Simulation

Emergency Simulation

February 28th, 2014

by Mary Mason

As the leading humanitarian organization in the world, UNICEF is often one of the first responders in times of global crisis.  When natural disasters hit or political conflicts arise, UNICEF sends in people and supplies to help. With this in mind, UNICEF of Loyola organized an Emergency Simulation that mirrors UNICEF’s lifesaving work.  During the […]

A Weekend On The Slopes

A Weekend On The Slopes

February 24th, 2014

by Mary Mason

Every year, my family and I venture to upstate New York for a weekend of skiing and other winter activities.  Though I possess very little athletic ability, I can at least hold my own when it comes to skiing.  In fact, skiing is probably the only sport that I really enjoy.  That being said, my […]

In Which I Have A Lot of Feelings, Mostly About the Olympics

In Which I Have A Lot of Feelings, Mostly About the Olympics

February 19th, 2014

by Ellen Gordon

Winter has always been my favorite season. I love the scarfs and the snow and the boots and the skiing and the twinkling Christmas lights. Unfortunately, having a broken foot has definitely put a bit of a damper on my mood this year. Luckily, I’ve been able to distract myself with my favorite quadrennial activity… […]

One Billion Rising

February 19th, 2014

by Mary Mason

Following in the spirit of Jesuit values, the Loyola community is committed to social justice.  This commitment is all too clear among Sociology students.  This semester, I am taking a class on social movements and social change.  Over the Valentine’s Day weekend, one of my classmates actually participated in a social movement: One Billion Rising.

I received the greatest care package the other day from my family.  It was a bunch of random items, but strangely enough, it was all I ever wanted for Valentines day! Here’s a few of the things I received. 1.  Yum Yum Sauce.- Ok, if you’ve never had yum yum sauce, I insist you try […]

The Loyola Men’s Basketball season is in full swing, and the Loyola community has been pulling out all the stops to show its full support! The walls of Damen have been covered in advertisements for basketball games and events.  On Thursday the school sponsored the Jesuit Jam, closely followed by the “Cage the Redbirds” Tailgate […]

Madonna Della Strada

Madonna Della Strada

February 11th, 2014

by

Loyola’s cathedral, Madonna Della Strada, is the most beautiful cathedral I have ever seen in America (I say America because the most beautiful cathedrals I have ever seen are located in Rome, where I spent a semester abroad). Whether you’re inside the cathedral attending Sunday mass or jogging by the cathedral on a lakefront run, […]

Homework Tips Part 1

February 9th, 2014

by

After a long hiatus from blogging, I’m finally getting back into the groove of things. A topic I want to revisit in the next two posts is about how to stay on top of your classes. This is extremely important for those students taking 5, 6 or even 7 classes (like me). Many students think […]

Loyolacappella!

February 7th, 2014

by Tanner Walters

I have really exciting news! I recently auditioned for Loyola’s co-ed a cappella group, Loyolacappella, and was fortunate enough to make it into the group! Anyone who knows me knows how much of an a cappella geek I am, so I really can not emphasize how ecstatic I am to get involved. I had my […]

The Perfect Study Spot

The Perfect Study Spot

February 6th, 2014

by

Recently, I’ve been itching to find a new study spot. I cannot focus in my apartment (I usually turn on the TV and watch a “Friends” marathon) and I can’t focus at the library, either (I  just want to socialize while there).  My apartment in Lakeview is full of a ton of cool coffee shops […]
