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.

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, […]

I am part of a learning community at Loyola. There are a variety of learning communities that incoming freshman can join. Students that are in learning communities will have monthly meetings about their learning community. Also, students will live in the same building with their learning community peers to get to know each other.   The learning community I am […]

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 […]

Where to Work as a First-Year Student

March 19th, 2016

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 […]

Adjusting to Loyola as a Commuter

Adjusting to Loyola as a Commuter

January 27th, 2016

Adjusting to the college life was a big challenge for myself. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but what kept me going through the semester was the idea of how I am one step closer to fulfilling my aspirations. Currently, I am a biology/pre-med major in hopes of becoming a Pediatrician. One of […]
