Addy the Sergeant

Addy the Sergeant

November 30th, 2014

All the elderly veterans that I have met at my job have been male and this shouldn’t be a surprise.  After five years, I finally got to meet an elderly woman who was once a Sergeant Chief.  I found this extraordinary since back then only males joined the army, navy, and air-force.  Even though, she […]


Fast Delivery Food for Finals

November 30th, 2014

Who else gets super hungry when studying?  The worst type of hungry is the 2-am-studying-for-finals hungry.  Damen and Simpson are closed and so are the cafes around campus.  Star Grill is a walk, and it’s probably not a good idea to be walking outside at that time anyway.  Your only choice is to order food, […]


Grateful for this City, Grateful for this School

Grateful for this City, Grateful for this School

November 29th, 2014

Thanksgiving is quite obviously a time to give thanks. I could go on and on about all the things I am grateful for, but I wanted to give a little extra thanks to the city and school I’ve come to know and love over the past year. CHICAGO, Thank you for: The skyline. It always […]


A great way to give back…

November 26th, 2014

In T-minus 3 hours, Thanksgiving Day will be here.  This beautiful holiday is a great reminder for all of us.  However, this shouldn’t be the only day that you should be thankful for everything you’ve done, accomplished, and/or seen.  Every day should be Thanksgiving Day, but sometimes we get so caught in our “busy lives” […]


Thankful Loyolans

Thankful Loyolans

November 25th, 2014

    In order to show their gratitude and thankfulness this year, Ramblers took hundreds of post-it notes to a chalkboard on-campus to share what they were thankful for:   Happy Thanksgiving from our Loyola family to yours!  


Mastering the Trains: Amtrak and Metra Edition

November 20th, 2014

As college students in the city, public transportation has become our best friend. Obviously the easy access to trains and buses is a huge benefit for all of us living here, but before you get the hang of it all you’ve got some learning to do. The CTA will get you anywhere you need to go […]


GRE Greatness

GRE Greatness

November 19th, 2014

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?  […]


Will Run for Chocolate

Will Run for Chocolate

November 9th, 2014

When you sign up for an average 5K you usually get a fancy, new race shirt, maybe a water bottle if you’re lucky. When you run the Hot Chocolate 5K you earn a little extra race swag. Crossing the finish line of this race earns you a “Finisher’s Mug”, which (of course) includes, hot chocolate, […]


To & From Loyola

To & From Loyola

November 8th, 2014

This has been my first year commuting and so far, I have to say that I have a lot of respect for all of those commuters out there!  Not only is it work, but it is a commitment.  We all want to get to school on time, but driving to the city, let alone taking […]


For When You’re Missing Home

November 2nd, 2014

It’s been a while since you’ve seen your parents, your siblings, or your pets and at this point in the semester you’re probably dragging. It’s already been a month since fall break and we’ve got another month to go before Thanksgiving break, so how do you cope with the homesickness that just kicked in? Well, […]
