Connections to the Community

October 27th, 2014

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. You can visit different neighborhoods, fancy restaurants […]


Loyola’s recent PhD graduate…

October 26th, 2014

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 […]


Tips for First Generation Students

October 25th, 2014

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 […]


Loyola keeps winnin’

October 13th, 2014

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 […]


The best project to work on is you.

The best project to work on is you.

October 8th, 2014

I do not know how I would’ve gotten through college without my best friends, coffee, and Halas.  Halas, Loyola’s exquisite Recreation Center, is pretty much my second home.  I remember walking in as a freshman, before all of the construction, and waiting in line for half an hour for Zumba class.  Yes, it got crowded […]


Coffee on the go

Coffee on the go

October 3rd, 2014

If someone would have told me what a workout it would be to commute from my hometown to Loyola, I would have chosen to commute a long time ago!  (jk, living on campus is much more fun!).  Apart from the fact that my commute is only a two and a half hour commute, I have […]


The Countdown Begins

January 23rd, 2014

It is near the end of the second week of my last semester at Loyola University Chicago. As I get up every morning to start my day, I always ask myself, Where has the time gone? Four years truly flies by at a blink of an eye. Along with finishing up what is required of […]


Campus Commuter

January 14th, 2014

For my last year at Loyola, I decided to move off campus and take advantage of other areas of Chicago.  My friends and I finally decided on an apartment less than one block from Wrigley Field.  So far, SO GREAT. A lot of people have asked me if it gets annoying having to make the […]

Finding Nemo (At Shedd Aquarium)

October 27th, 2013

When you’re an out-of-state student, it seems that relatives are always looking to plan visits to see you in Chicago.  Or at least this has been the case for me for the past couple of weeks.  In the few short months I’ve been at school, I’ve had lots of family members make the trip from […]


The Beginning of the End

September 4th, 2013

It is my senior year at Loyola University Chicago. Typing the sentence itself for my last first post as an undergraduate student is still surreal. This year I am looking forward to begin the steps needed to embark on the next chapter in my life. I will be enrolled in graduate school, hopefully in the […]
