Loyola’s Multicultural Greek Council

Loyola’s Multicultural Greek Council

April 26th, 2016

It seems like every American knows about sororities and fraternities, and the not-always-positive image of them that exists because of movies like Neighbors and Legally Blonde. People see them as white, full of, well, the type of people whose appropriate adjectives I can’t type in my position as an employee for my school. Of course, most […]


Registering For Classes – What’s that like?

Registering For Classes – What’s that like?

April 19th, 2016

One of the biggest aspect of colleges is class. Unexpected, right? Not nearly so much as you would think. There are also other essential components to the college experience, but class is pretty high up there on the list, definitely a tie for first with whatever you love. After all, it’s kind of the reason […]

Being an Out-of-State Student at LUC

April 12th, 2016

In looking at colleges, you might have considered a public school what with reciprocal or in-state tuition, compared to a private school like Loyola. That was definitely the pull for me away from Loyola, but all the other things brought me back! I’m from Minnesota. But here at Loyola, I have friends from California, Pennsylvania, […]

Who doesn’t love food? Almost everyone enjoys trying out new, ethnic food and here in our lovely city of Chicago, there are so many interesting restaurants at every street and corner with Zagat reviews, Grubhub options, etc. I can assure you that you will have an adventure of a lifetime and make your taste buds […]


Picking a College

Picking a College

April 5th, 2016

Wow, a hefty topic. Crazy how big the decision is, too. I don’t mean to scare you. But I do want to remind you that decisions are due May 1, and if you haven’t started thinking about what you want to do, well… Now is the time. So that’s where I come in! As a […]


Deposit Paid and Forms Signed: Now What?

Deposit Paid and Forms Signed: Now What?

March 29th, 2016

Well done, you. So you’ve done everything the UAO asked you to do – took the placement tests, promised to keep doing good senior year (right?), turned in your money, signed away your life. Now all there’s left to do is… what? Chances are, you’re going to go into this whole process without knowing where […]


Decision Time

March 27th, 2016

You’ve made it. You’re nearly finished with your senior year of high school and you can’t wait to take the next steps toward your future in college. College…that’s the tough part isn’t it? By this point you’re probably dizzy from all the campuses you’ve toured and the pile of acceptance letters at you’ve accumulated. Now […]

8 Free Apps You’ll Need for College

March 22nd, 2016

Ah, modern technology. Isn’t it great? It allows us to connect with each other, it allows us to create, to learn, and to share. Incidentally, it also allows me to write this to tell you about apps you’ll be needing in college. Some of them are Loyola-specific, but the ones that aren’t will be useful […]

Ooh, a job. For some of you, it might be a scary, new prospect that just a reminder of the incoming doom of life after school. For others, it’s something you’ve known for years. Whether you’re looking to get a job to help pay for this expensive (but worth it) school or just so you […]


Going Greek!

Going Greek!

February 12th, 2016

Since beginning my time at Loyola, I’ve been unsure of whether or not sorority life was for me. Where I come from most of my friends go to big state schools and greek life there is wild. The thought of sorority recruitment had always scared me, the horror stories from high school clouded my judgement […]
