Hello Future Ramblers, welcome to my amazing journey at Loyola.

First of all, my name is Emily Carreno and I am just beginning my journey at Loyola. I am majoring in nursing and minoring in psychology. Many people ask me, “Why Loyola?” and I tell them because of the fascinating nursing program they offer. Loyola University Chicago has an outstanding nursing program where I am able to pursue my undergraduate degree. Also, the nursing program is rigorous and it will strengthen me as a student and prepare me for a career. I am thrilled to be one of the few incoming freshman accepted into Loyola’s selective nursing program.

Loyola also provided me the opportunity to be part of a TRiO program called Achieving College Excellence (ACE) at Loyola. ACE provides additional help to students to achieve college goals and has free one-on-one tutoring and individual advising and guidance. ACE gave me an opportunity to attend a transition program to help ease my transition to Loyola and college life. Another reason why I chose Loyola is because it is close to home. I wanted to see my two-year-old sister grow up from being a baby to being a toddler and teaching her many new things. But that’s not the only reason I chose Loyola, I chose it because of the mission they hold. They believe in expanding our knowledge through learning, justice, and faith and are “preparing people to lead extraordinary lives.” Loyola was just right for me and now here I am telling you why I chose to become a Rambler.
