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?  […]


Latin American Student Organization

Latin American Student Organization

November 16th, 2014

Did you know that Hispanics are the largest minority at Loyola University Chicago?  Among Loyola’s diverse campus, the student body consists of so many cultures that you’d be surprised!  Freshman year, I was lucky enough to live in the international floor (by luck), and I met so many students from all over the world.  This encouraged me to search for more people […]


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 […]


Loyola’s recent PhD graduate…

October 26th, 2014

Have you met Dr. Binaku? Katrina Binaku, also known as Dr. Binaku, graduated last spring from Loyola University Chicago and received her PhD in Chemistry.  She was my General Chemistry Teacher Assistant freshman year.  She was always very helpful and nice, and I was lucky enough to bump into her last week.  She told me […]


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 […]

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 […]


The Downs and Ups of Declaring an Undecided Major

The Downs and Ups of Declaring an Undecided Major

October 8th, 2014

So you’ve finally decided on a college, it was a long process, but you’re here. You went on countless college visits, received way too many college letters, felt pressure from your parents as you filled out applications, and now you’re home free. All you have to do is buy some extra-long twin sheets and meet […]


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 […]
