Summer break already?

Summer break already?


It is pretty scary to know that I’ll be entering into my third year at Loyola. Time goes by faster than you think.

Sophomore year is coming to an end. It certainly does not feel like summer break is next week, given the recent weather Chicago has been having. Some days, we’ve had winter-like weather, and the fact that we are right next to the lake, does not help with the wind gusts. But to compensate, our campus has had a plethora of bunnies which is quite pleasant to look at, nibbling at the grass, as students walk across campus.

I will be taking a course over the summer to keep myself in the ‘student’ mode and get caught up. It will be interesting to see orientations happening during my class time. Hopefully I will get the opportunity to see you prospective students and even get to talk to you one-to-one. During convocation week, you’ll see me again ,helping out the OCSL- Off-Campus Student Living group. I’ll be welcoming the commuter students, especially. 🙂 It’s always such a fun time to experience that freshman excitement all over again. It brings back a ton of memories when I was a freshman in 2014.

Over the summer, I will be volunteering at Swedish Covenant Hospital (and maybe Rush Medical Center) for a period of time. In addition, I will be taking care of my brother, Ryan, and take him to parks, playdates, and a bunch of other summer-related activities. I also plan on hanging out with friends and jamming to music with people like Dong, a talented musician (professional violinist!). I still play the cello and will continue to attend Old Town School of Folk Music over the summer. Altogether, my summer is full of things to do and I’m looking forward to all of it.

With that being said, this is my last blog post of the 2016 spring semester and I hope you guys enjoyed journeying with me into my sophomore year, here at Loyola University Chicago.

Until next time,

Farewell & have a fantastic summer!

Christopher Lam
