GRE Greatness

GRE Greatness

November 19th, 2014

by Stephanie Rodriguez

I am NOT trying to scare you.  I know that many people detest talking about “the future plans.”  Are you applying to medical school?  Did you take the GRE?  What about the subject GRE?  What grad school are you going to?  So, what are you doing after graduation?  Did you ask for your recommendation letters?  […]

Skydiving at iFLY!

Skydiving at iFLY!

November 18th, 2014

by Therese Bennett

Hello again! In continuing my trend of discussing fun things to do, I am going to tell you all of a fun experience a little outside of Chicago. Ever wanted to skydive without paying around 300 dollars? Ever wanted to experience the feeling of free-fall? Ever just wanted to be suspended in the air and […]

Millennium Skates

November 18th, 2014

by Samantha Eddmeiri

Since we’ve officially had our first snow of the year, (although realistically that was Halloween) it is beginning to feel more and more like the holidays every day. Although I am a Muslim and don’t officially observe any of the major winter holidays, I still get super excited for them each year. It’s a time […]

Only 13 Days Left!

November 18th, 2014

by Lindsy Fagerstrom

  13 days or 312 hours or 18,720 minutes or 1,123,200 seconds… until our priority deadline: December 1st! That means you better request your transcripts, test scores (ACT or SAT), and letters of recommendation right away so schools, counselors, teachers, and testing agencies have time to send it all over to Loyola before our postmark deadline. Also make […]

Managing Stress

November 18th, 2014

by Christopher Lam

At times, college as a whole can be overwhelming, especially when you first begin. From dorm life to school work, people can have a considerable amount of anxiety and stress. College ultimately puts you under the pressure so that you are ready tackle the bigger challenges and difficultly that will come up in the future. […]

Latin American Student Organization

Latin American Student Organization

November 16th, 2014

by Stephanie Rodriguez

Did you know that Hispanics are the largest minority at Loyola University Chicago?  Among Loyola’s diverse campus, the student body consists of so many cultures that you’d be surprised!  Freshman year, I was lucky enough to live in the international floor (by luck), and I met so many students from all over the world.  This encouraged me to search for more people […]

Our Jesuit Education

November 16th, 2014

by Laura Swanson

  “We are Chicago’s Jesuit, Catholic University—a diverse community seeking God in all things and working to expand knowledge in the service of humanity through learning, justice, and faith.”   Loyola is a special university, for more reasons than are obvious to a visitor. As a student here I appreciate the ways Loyola incorporates caring […]

Science and Industry Museum

Science and Industry Museum

November 16th, 2014

by Therese Bennett

Since the weather is getting even colder (it seriously feels like February over here in Chicago), Chicago exploration must be confined to indoors. What better place to explore indoors than the Museum of Science and Industry! The Museum of Science and Industry is located at 5700 South Lakeshore Drive and they are dedicated to inspiring […]

by Brienne Lubor

Meet the Wellness Advocates!  We are an on-campus peer education organization that works in conjunction with the Wellness Center to inform the Loyola community about healthy lifestyle choices.  We meet every Wednesday to plan and to reflect on multiple events, from our Good Sam I Am Campaign (advocating our Good Samaritan law) during Halloween to […]

SafeTrek

November 15th, 2014

by Samantha Eddmeiri

It’s not easy to tell your parents that you want to move to Chicago. Mine, at least, were extremely freaked out by the fact that I was moving from my safe little town of Lincoln, Nebraska to the vast city life of Chicago. It’s scary and unknown, and parents realize that they cannot completely protect […]
