Coming Home From A Summer Abroad

Coming Home From A Summer Abroad

September 4th, 2013

I’m home! I’m back to my home at Loyola as well as my home in America. I spent the summer abroad in Ghana, Africa. I was in Ghana for two and a half months, both volunteering and studying abroad. I studied through a program called USAC that Loyola partners with to help students go global. […]


Onward to Senior Year!

May 7th, 2013

As cliche as it sounds, I truly cannot believe how fast my college years have gone by.  It seems like just yesterday I was moving into Regis Hall and making friends who are still my close friends today.  There are so many great memories I have had these past three years, but here are a […]


Sydney, Australia

Sydney, Australia

April 17th, 2013

Break part two! Sydney was probably number one on my list of places to visit while studying abroad in Australia. Calling it beautiful is an understatement. When I stepped out of the airport and got my first views of the city, I was instantly reminded of Chicago, which was really comforting to me. The crowds, […]

Easter break gave me my first real opportunity to travel and see what Australia has to offer beyond Melbourne and Victoria. I never in my life thought I would get to see Tasmania, but I did and it was beyond beautiful. I’ve been lucky enough to have met friends here at school that have the […]

The Game of Footy

March 27th, 2013

Footy – it’s a big deal. I finally got the opportunity to see my first match, as the season here is just starting to kick off. This match was just a scrimmage at my school in preparation for the upcoming games, but it was still great fun. In my opinion, the game resembled something between […]

Orientation week, or o’week as they call it, is more than just getting acquainted with the campus and crowds of new faces, it’s a tradition here at my host school in Australia, Deakin University. Not only is it the last week until summer ends and classes begin, but the week is filled with events, new […]


Beach Welcome Trip

Beach Welcome Trip

March 13th, 2013

This week past week, I got the amazing experience of visiting Lorne, Australia. Lorne is a beach town about three hours from where I am staying in Melbourne. My host university set up this trip for all the international students, as a chance for us to meet each other as well as settle into Australian […]


Hello from Melbourne, Australia

Hello from Melbourne, Australia

March 3rd, 2013

After 31 hours of traveling, I’m finally here! The feeling is incredible. I’ve worked for months making sure I was prepared by reading books, filling out paperwork and visiting advisors. As I stepped out of the airport I knew it was finally time for the pay off! The first and biggest difference I noticed about […]


Summer Plans

Summer Plans

January 26th, 2013

January seems a little early to be making summer plans doesn’t it? I thought so too, until I decided to study abroad in Ghana this summer! In fact, I began looking into studying abroad in October! I guess that’s what happens when you are as excited about future plans as I am. I was able […]
