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 […]


You Can Call Me MC

You Can Call Me MC

September 1st, 2013

As a newcomer to the Loyola blog-isphere, I figured it was a good idea to start with a short introduction.  So here it is – a brief glimpse into my life at Loyola! I am currently a senior majoring in English and Political Science in the College of Arts and Sciences, with a minor in […]


St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day

March 19th, 2013

St. Patrick’s day in Chicago is the best! At home, St. Patrick’s day comes and goes with an article of green clothing and maybe some green eggs. But in Chicago, it’s a whole different story. We celebrated it on Saturday instead of Sunday. My day started when I woke up at 7:30 am to start […]


Ebony Ball: Our Shades of Beauty

Ebony Ball: Our Shades of Beauty

February 25th, 2013

One of the last events for Loyola University Chicago‘s Black History Month celebrations was Ebony Ball. On Friday, Feb. 22, the Black Cultural Center hosted this formal for the first time at Regents Hall in the Lewis Towers on our campus downtown. As vice president, I had to oversee the planning and facilitate tasks to […]
