So if you have yet to get your Fest tickets, what are you waiting for? I will be there, other awesome people will be there, and it is going to be a great time!
Thanks for reading my blog and always stay awesome!
P.S. I want to see YOU at Fest and if you see me come say hi I love making new friends!
Finals week, we all knew it was coming. The weeks were passing by and those dreadful exams, projects, and papers got closer and closer.
One place to check out is the CCM (Catholic Campus Ministry) office located in suite 104 in the student center in LPC. They will be open every day from 9am – 9pm, aside from Friday (9 am – 5pm), and anyone is welcome to come in, sit on the very comfortable couches, and work. Granted the couches are extremely comfortable so you might fall asleep, but the invitation is there.
DAB will also be hosting a finals study session in the LPSC (Lincoln Park Student Center) room 120 on November 23rd starting at 3pm. Just like CCM, this event is open to all students, but wait there’s more! Right outside of room 120 there will be a tea bar and free massages to help relieve some of the stresses of finals.
Another thing to remember is the library will be open 24 hours starting November 18th and throughout the rest of finals. So, whether it’s at CCM on a comfy couch, with DAB and free massages, or just at the library in your favorite study spot I wish everyone good luck during this finals week and may we all pass our classes!
Thank you for reading my blog today and as always stay

Hello everyone and happy Monday! Today I will be writing about getting involved at DePaul. “Get involved” I am sure many of you have heard this before whether it was at orientation here at DePaul, from a speaker, or someone else. I am here to let you know, it is true!
There's a fairly new app that is trending around college campuses called “Yik Yak” and on this app I see too many post about individuals not having friends, no events to go to, etc. Aside from Yik Yak, I recently looked up DePaul University on Google, because I was bored, and found that we actually have a Yelp page dedicated to us. For those of you that are unfamiliar, Yelp is a website where consumers can post reviews about a certain business, store, and now apparently schools too. While scrolling through the reviews, I saw a person post about how angry they were with the experience they had here at DePaul and I was shocked! This user gave DePaul a 1 out of 5 star rating and posted a very long and descriptive review of how DePaul let them down.
I will not go into specifics, but one thing I noticed when reading the review was that this user was a commuter and not involved. In case you didn't notice, I am a HUGE advocate of DePaul University and am enjoying my experience here greatly. So to see a review like this, I had to take a step back and really think.
The realization I came to was that if it was not for all the clubs and organizations that I am a part of my experience here would suck, and that decision to become more than just a student has to come from the individual themselves. DePaul supplies the resources but you have to supply the motivation.
So to those who feel as though they have no friends, no plans, and nothing to do I challenge you to look on DeHub and join random clubs. Cause the only way your experience will become better is if you take that extra step. If you are the type of person who needs an invitation to something or else you won't go, then consider this my invitation to you! I will be including a list of a few events going on that I will be at. If you see me do not hesitate to walk up and say “hi,” I love people and even more than that I love making new friends!
