Chicago and Unpredictable, Crazy Weather

Chicago and Unpredictable, Crazy Weather

January 25th, 2016

If you are a native Chicagoan, this post heading should not be any surprise to you. Chicago weather, not matter what the news say (even if it’s Tom Skilling), the weather will not be exactly what you expect it to be. The winter season, especially, has been very funky lately. We haven’t had a white […]


Life at Loyola

Life at Loyola

January 22nd, 2016

Hello to anyone reading this! I’m Meredith Simmons and I’m a Freshman here at Loyola, this is my first post as a LUC admissions blogger so introductions are necessary. I am a marketing major and I grew up in Northwest Indiana about an hour outside the city. I love reading, music and exploring the city. […]


Giving Thanks For LUC

November 29th, 2015

I feel bad for Thanksgiving. This perfectly good holiday has become overshadowed by the upcoming Christmas season. Rather than serving as a pause and time to give thanks with our loved ones it has become the perfect long weekend to get the best deals on the perfect presents and set up the Christmas tree. I’ll […]


Sweet Home CHICAGO

June 16th, 2015

  There is no better place on earth than Chicago and let me tell  you why… Explore: Get to know the city through the CTA (Chicago’s public trains and buses). Students get U-Passes which provide unlimited access and serves as your passport to the city. This is a great way to explore different neighborhoods all over the city. […]


Job Hunting

May 3rd, 2015

  My graduation is T H I S Friday at 3 pm!  I am so excited, but so are my parents so I can start job hunting!  I want to share a website that has really helped me out to get organized on my job search.  Sorry for the short post, but after having a […]


Recorded Lectures: a love and hate relationship

April 22nd, 2015

I cringe every time a professor tells me that they record his or her lectures.  Why?  Well, at that point, he or she is giving me the chance to not listen.  I am tempted and the struggle is real.  However, I understand why the professors do it.  I really do!  I love hand writing all […]


The end of my internship

The end of my internship

April 19th, 2015

Last Wednesday was the last day of my internship at Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation.  It was difficult to wrap my head around the fact that I had been interning for 3x a week for a total of 3 months.  I do not know how 3 months went by so quickly!  It was so sad […]


Employee Appreciation Day

Employee Appreciation Day

April 18th, 2015

Walking into my exam, last Thursday I realized that I needed my coffee fix.  I am a coffee drinker, yes.  Coffee is on deck 24/7, like almost every other fellow rambler!  I decided to stop and get a coffee when I saw Brenda!  I have known Brenda for a long time, like Rambler Room long […]


Southside Market

April 17th, 2015

May 8th is quickly approaching and so are the final papers, presentations, research labs, and exams.  As I was walking through Damen, I decided to stop at the smoothie stop.  I figured why not?  I am going to graduate soon, and I have not had the luxury to look at all the new buildings.  I […]


Red Line Conversations feat. The Guy in The Blue Sweater

April 6th, 2015

You hear the craziest of things on the red line.  This is why I try to remember to pack my headphones.  It is honestly such a sad experience when I forget them, but I cannot lie and say that is not entertaining!  I have heard some of the most inaccurate facts that make me giggle, […]
