So Say We All

So Say We All

September 10th, 2013

As y’all may have noticed, I disappeared last semester. When they say that your spring semester of junior year is the hardest in the nursing program here, they aren’t kidding. Luckily, I was able to have such a relaxing summer that I feel rejuvenated and ready for my senior year! So, what did I do […]


Summer in Ohio

September 10th, 2013

My last summer as a college student was bittersweet! I tried to make the most of every moment because I knew next summer I would (hopefully!) be employed or in graduate school. I spent my summer back in Kirtland, Ohio (just 20 minutes outside of Cleveland) with my parents, brother, sister, and cute puppy, Marley. […]


Summer in the City

Summer in the City

September 9th, 2013

It doesn’t make a lot of sense to me that I’m already a sophomore, and yet here we are. Watching the new freshmen begin their lives here makes me realize how much I’ve changed in only a short year at Loyola. But before I get all sentimental on you, I’ll fill you in on my […]


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 […]


Looking Forward To Spring

March 4th, 2013

Well, it’s been a minute since I last wrote. This has been due in large part to what admission counselors call “reading season.” This is the time of year we read the numerous applications that students filled out in the Fall. Much like the “holiday season,” this time of year is stressful, fun, busy and […]


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 […]


Summer Was Our Best Season

Summer Was Our Best Season

September 7th, 2012

The title of my “return to school” blog has been taken from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. For one of my best friends and I, this quote has became the unofficial motto of every summer since our senior year of high school. It’s also completely true. Because while I love the hustle and […]


Dwindling Summer= Back to Chi!

Dwindling Summer= Back to Chi!

September 6th, 2012

After 8 long, long, months I was ready to get back to the greatest city in America! I was incredibly eager to get back to Chicago and Loyola, since I hadn’t been there since December because of my trip abroad this spring semester. My summer wasn’t too eventful, but it was very relaxing! It mainly […]


True Life: I Survived The First Week Of Classes

True Life: I Survived The First Week Of Classes

September 6th, 2012

It was painful, but I did it. I survived the first week of classes! The first few days back from Summer break are always the hardest to get through. After an amazing, relaxing Summer spent sunbathing and swimming, sitting in class is the last thing I look forward to. It is the inevitable end to […]


Coming to a School Near You…

September 6th, 2012

Happy fall! What’s not to love about this time of year? Students are back on campus, the summer heat is slowly disappearing, pumpkin spice lattes are back at Starbucks and it’s travel season for Admission Counselors! This will be my first travel season and I’m ready to hit the ground running after weeks of phone […]
