How to Choose the Right High School Classes

July 8th, 2015

  Everyone wants to know the secret recipe of high school classes to earn admission at Loyola, and while there is not one right combination of classes to choose, I am going to share some of my personal advice for making these decisions: How are Honors, AP, or IB Classes perceived by Loyola? It’s always nice […]

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 […]

Taking the Stage–Roman Style

February 26th, 2015

Well, at least taking a stage that happens to be in Rome. This semester a class of about 20 JFRC students (including myself) have decided to “take the stage” and learn a thing or two about the world of theater. Beginning Acting is taught by professor Eric Nicholson who is no stranger to the drama […]

First Day of the Second Semester

January 12th, 2015

Today, things were quite casual for me despite the new classes and teachers. I was pleased to now be in classes with my friends (which made going to class and understanding the material easier). We all had back-to-back classes, so it was fun to walk with them to each building and discuss what we liked […]

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 […]

Homework Tips Part 1

February 9th, 2014

After a long hiatus from blogging, I’m finally getting back into the groove of things. A topic I want to revisit in the next two posts is about how to stay on top of your classes. This is extremely important for those students taking 5, 6 or even 7 classes (like me). Many students think […]

Pros and Cons of Classes

April 9th, 2013

There’s less than a month left of classes, so why not write about them I say. Registration is coming up really soon, which means that I need to begin coordinating my schedule for next semester. For now, I’m finishing up my Spring semester, doing my best to balance work and school. This semester has been […]

As I have said before I love taking art classes on this campus! I am just finishing my first project for Ceramics and I think it looks pretty good. My Cup Collections!

100 Meters Left Everyone!

November 30th, 2012

One week done and one week left to go before we face the unwanted, but necessary, Finals. I’ll be dividing this blog into two, one to cover this past week and some things I’ll be expecting next week, and the second to briefly write about Thanksgiving, even though it was over a week ago. The […]

Post- Registration Week

November 12th, 2012

Right now, I’m healthy and I’m happy, the two most important things a person should be. Therefore I am beginning a fresh new week in a great mood. For all you stressed out college students, remember that- do everything based on keeping yourself healthy and happy (most of the time). Try to pull minimal all […]
