Beginning The Study Abroad Process

October 24th, 2012

One of the great things about Loyola is that they really encourage their students to study abroad. And many students do! Loyola makes it really easy to study abroad by providing a ton of information on their website and offering a lot of different study abroad options. We even have a campus in Rome, Italy […]


Traveling & Study Abroad

Traveling & Study Abroad

October 5th, 2012

So for the past month, I have spent A LOT of time on the road and living out of a suitcase for fall travel, recruitment to various high schools and college fairs around Indiana & Illinois. This has led to quite a bit of reminiscing over my study abroad experience while I was a junior at Loyola University […]


Easter in Rome

Easter in Rome

April 18th, 2012

Celebrating Easter in the world capital of Catholicism was definitely something I can check off my bucket list.  Loyola had a bunch of tickets to go to St. Peter’s Basilica on Easter Sunday.  It was mass… with the pope!! Luckily, Father Al (one of the priests here at John Felice Rome Center) was generous enough […]


Awaiting My Family

Awaiting My Family

April 3rd, 2012

This upcoming Easter weekend, my mom, dad, brother and sister are all headed over to Rome to visit me! I’m currently making a list of places for us to go/eat/sight see.  They’re coming for a week, and are hoping to make it to all Rome’s main attractions: The Colosseum, The Roman Forum, The Trevi Fountain […]


One More Month

One More Month

March 28th, 2012

While looking at my calendar, I saw that I had marked on this day, March 28th, “One month to go :(”.  I can’t believe I only have one month left here in Rome! Time has flown by and I have enjoyed every single minute of my time exploring Europe. I will be very sad to […]


Mini Care Package From Home to Rome

March 13th, 2012

I’ve been obsessively checking my mailbox for the past few weeks, since I knew a little package was coming for me from home.  Before I left for Italy, I ordered a few necessities online, and of course with my luck, they got to the States the day after I leave! So my lovely mother sent […]


Snow in Rome

Snow in Rome

February 15th, 2012

One of the main reasons I was ecstatic for Rome was the fact that the weather is significally warmer than Chicago.  I packed a light jacket and a light pea coat, not even considering there could be any weather colder than maybe mid forty or fifty degrees. Little did I know that I would need […]

Top 5 Gelaterias In Rome

So since leaving Rome the one thing I have missed more than anything, is some amazing gelato. So here is my list of the best places in the city of Rome. 1. Gelateria del Teatro – By far the best Gelato in Rome! Location is simply amazing, located down a picture perfect roman alleyway. And […]


From Ohio to Roma

From Ohio to Roma

January 19th, 2012

It was weird coming home for winter break, because I knew wouldn’t be coming back to Chicago.  I’m studying abroad in Rome, Italy this semester, so it was crazy to think I’d be on another continent for the whole spring semester. Most of my break was spent preparing for Rome.  There’s so much you need […]


Im Tad, Like a Tadpole

Im Tad, Like a Tadpole

November 4th, 2011

In 2009 I started my attendance at Loyola completely unsure of what I wanted to do with my life. I knew I wanted to help people and I decided I would take advantage of every opportunity that was given to me. I came to Loyola for a number of reasons, but I stayed after I […]
