    Chicago Life and Loyola Love
Relax and Breathe

Relax and Breathe

October 16th, 2014

by Christopher Lam

The best place on the Lake Shore Loyola Campus to relax, reflect, and take a deep breath would be to sit on the ledge facing the lake (behind the IC or chapel). Unlike most schools, Lake Michigan can be considered like our backyard because quite literally, it is. The sound of the waves/water are soothing and […]

Pumpkin Spice and Midterms’ Bite

October 16th, 2014

by Samantha Eddmeiri

It’s that time of year again: the leaves are changing, the temperature dropping, the sweater industry booming. I for one, really do enjoy this time of year. (Although experiencing it in Chicago is a new wonder, I didn’t think it would have been so rainy. I’ll make sure to start a ‘what to actually bring […]

Down the (Maroon and Gold) Brick Road

October 13th, 2014

by Samantha Eddmeiri

Throughout my junior and senior year of high school, I was constantly badgered by the question “where are you going for college?” I didn’t know, and frankly, I didn’t have any want to figure it out that early on. My options were limited: the state university, or the two smaller private schools in my town. […]

Searching for a Home

October 13th, 2014

by Therese Bennett

While everyone thinks that choosing a college is difficult, I found it to be an easy decision. I knew right away in my junior year of highschool that I wanted to go to Loyola. Loyola runs in the family for me. My dad went to Loyola’s Stritch School of Medicine and my older sister graduated […]

Loyola is Exactly What I Was Looking For

Loyola is Exactly What I Was Looking For

October 13th, 2014

by Laura Swanson

When I started my college search I had one thing on my mind—Chicago. I grew up in a small town about three hours away from the city. Every time my family would come to the city for a visit my heart would start pumping fast and a smile would creep onto my face when I […]

Why I Chose Loyola

Why I Chose Loyola

October 13th, 2014

by Jace Sheu

To begin, it is important that I tell you this: The first time I ever set foot on Loyola’s campus was on move-in day, exactly one week before classes and the start of a years-long college career. Many may gasp at my apparent lack of self-preservation—others, guffaw such an inexplicable act—wondering how I could have […]

Why Did I Choose Loyola University Chicago?

Why Did I Choose Loyola University Chicago?

October 13th, 2014

by Brienne Lubor

Blog 3—Why did I choose Loyola? During my senior year of high school, my dad and I drove hundreds of miles to visit eight potential college choices.  We started in the East Coast, circled south towards Tennessee, and then toured Illinois colleges on our way home to Chicago.  We toured all kinds of schools: schools […]

Why Loyola?

October 13th, 2014

by Christopher Lam

I applied to many colleges and universities within the city including Northwestern, DePaul, University of Chicago, and St. Xavier because I wanted to commute instead of dorm. Out of all the schools, I wanted to find the one school that I could do well in, had a fantastic pre-med program, and focused on the well-being […]

Why I Chose Loyola

October 13th, 2014

by Natalie Pantelis

In this blog post, I’ll be discussing why I chose to come to Loyola! In the beginning of my college search, I had absolutely no idea where I wanted to go or what I was looking for in a college. I ended up applying for about sixteen schools in many different areas all over the […]

Loyola keeps winnin’

October 13th, 2014

by Stephanie Rodriguez

It’s difficult to not sound cliche every time I have to answer the question: Why did you choose Loyola?  First, let me take you to 2007.  I remember that year perfectly because I had my list of universities I wanted to apply to.  Loyola was the first one down on the list.  My mother’s good […]
