When asked what the single most important thing she will take away from her career at Loyola, senior volleyball player, Laura Purcell, said it’s the relationships.

The semester is winding down, final projects are being submitted and students are beginning to study for final exams. As everything becomes a huge rush and stress starts to set in, it is very easy to get lost in what for most college students is the busiest time of year. For Loyola students, there are plenty of opportunities to take a break from the stress and enjoy the holiday season. Chicago has many fun events and attractions to make students feel at home during the holidays.
The annual Magnificent Mile Lights Festival has come and gone and now the lights on Michigan Avenue shine brightly every evening as a reminder to passersby of the beauty of the season.
