Ooh, a job. For some of you, it might be a scary, new prospect that just a reminder of the incoming doom of life after school. For others, it’s something you’ve known for years. Whether you’re looking to get a job to help pay for this expensive (but worth it) school or just so you […]


Only 13 Days Left!

November 18th, 2014

  13 days or 312 hours or 18,720 minutes or 1,123,200 seconds… until our priority deadline: December 1st!

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 […]

Sunrise, Sunset

Sunrise, Sunset

February 9th, 2013

It feels like forever since I’ve last seen a sunrise or a sunset. I’m either in class or somewhere indoors when the sun sets, or it’s cloudy outside, or the skyscrapers of Chicago cover the radiant sky. So I decided, for those people who agree with me, to post some photographs, both new and old, […]

When I was an incoming freshman, writing a resume for my college application was optional, and though it still is, I think it’s beneficial to have one.
