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 […]


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 […]


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 […]

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 […]
