Being an Out-of-State Student at LUC

Being an Out-of-State Student at LUC

April 12th, 2016

In looking at colleges, you might have considered a public school what with reciprocal or in-state tuition, compared to a private school like Loyola. That was definitely the pull for me away from Loyola, but all the other things brought me back! I’m from Minnesota. But here at Loyola, I have friends from California, Pennsylvania, […]


That’s a Wrap: Semester #5

That’s a Wrap: Semester #5

December 11th, 2015

Then, all of the sudden I was half way done with my junior year. Huh. I think every semester of college has gone by faster than the last and before I know it I’ll be graduating. But let’s not jump that far ahead. Academically, this has been one of my easier semesters. Because I only […]


Winter Break Farewell

January 7th, 2015

From previous school years (in high school and grade school), my winter breaks only lasted about two weeks. This is the first time that I have been able to have a winter break that is a month long. The best part about this break is that, unlike some high schools and all grade schools, I […]


Saying Good-Bye to Winter Break

Saying Good-Bye to Winter Break

January 7th, 2015

As the last week of winter break starts to slip away, you’re probably wondering where all your free time went? Between family dinners, holiday celebrations, and reuniting with friends your entire month of freedom happened all too quickly. While you’ve still got a chance, make the most of your last few days of bliss! Spend […]


The Spirit of Christmas

December 19th, 2014

Since the start to my winter break, I have had the chance to go downtown a couple of times to see the beautiful lights wrapped around the trees, decorations in the store windows, holiday music in the malls, and little specks of snow falling down on our beautiful city of Chicago. Daley Plaza is filled […]


Winter Break!

December 15th, 2014

My last final was on Thursday and I was relieved and happy to have finished testing before most of my friends. Nonetheless, I had come back to school the next day to wish my friends good luck on their tests and for the whole day, I was relaxing in a comfy chair enjoying myself watching […]


The Countdown is On: Winter Break Here We Come

The Countdown is On: Winter Break Here We Come

December 7th, 2014

Tomorrow marks the official start of finals week, which means in 7 days or less Loyola students are free to go home. I for one am forever grateful for the person that decided to give college students an entire month off between fall and spring semesters. Especially after a week of non-stop studying, a stress […]


Winter Break

January 20th, 2014

Loyola is absolutely amazing for so many reasons. Reason #27 (roughly) of why Loyola is the best: they give us one full month of winter break! I remember as a freshman I had mixed feelings about this long hiatus from my new college friends, but as a busy, busy senior, this long break was exactly […]


Christmas Break

Christmas Break

January 23rd, 2013

Christmas break was EXTREMELY relaxing! It was so nice to take a break from the mounds of schoolwork I usually have and just enjoy the company of family and friends while eating tons of home cooked meals (my favorite part!). One of the many perks of Loyola is that they give everyone a full month […]
