When My Grandma Comes to Visit

When My Grandma Comes to Visit

November 28th, 2014

My grandma lived in Chicago for part of her childhood before moving to rural Illinois. The phrase, “You can take the girl out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the girl,” describes her perfectly. So when she comes to visit me in Chicago you better bet that means we do […]


Loyola is Exactly What I Was Looking For

Loyola is Exactly What I Was Looking For

October 13th, 2014

When I started my college search I had one thing on my mind—Chicago. I grew up in a small town about three hours away from the city. Every time my family would come to the city for a visit my heart would start pumping fast and a smile would creep onto my face when I […]


Cousins in Chicago

Cousins in Chicago

April 25th, 2013

Last weekend, my older cousin and her best friend visited me in Chicago!  They were my first visitors of the semester, so I was really excited to show them around the city.  They have only been here for dance competitions and other work related things (they’re dance teachers), so they were in for a big […]


1,794 Miles

September 25th, 2012

As I’ve mentioned before, fall means travel season for Admission Counselors! So far I’ve spent a total of 9 days on the road and I’ve driven a total of 1,794 miles throughout Indiana! That’s an average of 199 miles per day, woah. While I love fall travel and the opportunity to meet with so many […]


Reason I Love Chicago #3: Celebrity Sightings

Reason I Love Chicago #3: Celebrity Sightings

April 22nd, 2012

I’ve lived downtown in Loyola’s Baumhart residence hall for almost nine months now. I have loved being on the Water Tower Campus right in the heart of the best city in the world. There are always glamorous people around and fun things going on downtown. Yesterday, however, I had my first celebrity siting EVER– some […]


Reason I Love Chicago #2: People watching

Reason I Love Chicago #2: People watching

March 23rd, 2012

By now my fellow bloggers have already dished about St. Patrick’s Day in the city. One of the greatest things for me about everyone being out and about on the holiday weekend with the gorgeous weather was being able to people watch. The highlight of my St. Patrick’s Day (besides seeing the river dyed NEON green) […]


Dinner and Movie Night Out

December 10th, 2011

Friday night, I decided to take a much needed break from studying to relax and enjoy a good dinner and movie.  One of my good friends here at Loyola is transferring next semester, so we decided to plan this night for her.  She picked the restaurant and movie and invited all of her good friends. […]


Concert Hopping

Concert Hopping

November 22nd, 2011

Tomorrow is Loyola’s last day of classes before Thanksgiving break, and thank God! Two more class periods left and I’ll be on the road headed home to that great state shaped like a mitten. This break will definitely be well-deserved. Last week was busy busy—all of my professors are loading up the assignments and papers […]
