Author: Liz Bazzoli I’ve never had a religious background, nor do I come from a very religious family, so religion has never been a major component of my life. At the same time, I have always been eager to explore spirituality. When I decided to attend DePaul, one of my goals was to learn more … Read More
Congratulations to the following Honors Program November and June graduates who have contributed so much to the Honors Program community while at DePaul. Through their involvement, they have earned Honors Distinction. We are very proud of these outstanding students who will wear an additional honor cord at Commencement and will receive an extra designation on … Read More
Author: Elizabeth Ruda As a suburban commuter, I wasn’t one to hang around Chicago too long after class, but I started getting nostalgic the second everything went on lockdown. Managing Metra transfers and exploring the urban landscape gave me little daily quests, some tasks to accomplish. I enjoyed the growing sense of freedom that came … Read More

Prior to Professor Morano’s reading, the winners of the Like Love creative writing competition read their work. Listed below are the authors, and their … Read More
Author: Vinnie Podlasek Photo: Christina Milich The time is 8 a.m., I wake up with the same feeling as SpongeBob after a night at Weenie Hut Jr’s. Groggy and completely exhausted, I get dressed, and like usual, I’m wearing the same outfit as every Tuesday. I step outside into the chilling winter air, taking an … Read More
Author: Morris Mclennan At six a.m. every morning, I wake up, drink a tall glass of fair trade biodynamic keto coffee that’s been flown in from an independent New York coffee shop, and I go on a run while listening to audiobook readings of Bertolt Brecht’s full theoretical discography. I then go home, change into … Read More
Author: Liz Bazzoli I love travelling. I love the feeling of sand between my toes, the sunshine’s warmth on my skin, the hustle-and-bustle of everyday life mingling with the carefree meander of the tourist. Most of all I love the sensation of newness, that child-like joy for exploration which accompanies travelling. From my very first … Read More
Author: Erin Henze The pandemic has halted many things over the last 10 months, but many people are still attempting to carry on with one tradition that always accompanies the start of a new year: New Year’s Resolutions. We all know that it can be difficult to hold true to our resolutions for an extended … Read More
Author: Deyana Atanasova If you’ve been referring to pigeons as “the rats of the sky,” you might want to reconsider your perspective. That’s precisely what accomplished author and professor Kathleen Rooney asks readers to do when reading her newest novel, Cher Ami and Major Wjittlesey, which is told from two perspectives: an army soldier in WWI and a messenger pigeon. If you want to hear about it more in-depth and better than I could ever explain it, you can learn more about it here from Rooney herself. Yet, even without reading … Read More
Author: Deyana Atanasova So, a bit over a year ago, in November of 2019, I downloaded TikTok. Say what you will about it, but I genuinely learn something new every day from that app (…yes, I go on it every day–I’m working on that). One of the TikToks that I came across recently could not … Read More
Author: Jade Ryerson There are a lot of things we’ve all missed since the onset of the pandemic back in March. Luckily, the innovative team at Chicago’s Manual Cinema has ensured that live theater no longer has to be one of them. In a show suitable for all ages, Chicago Manual Cinema’s Christmas Carol combines … Read More
Author: Morris McLennan Finals week is here. I don’t know about anybody else, but I know I’m certainly operating at about 10% my usual brain capacity. Every morning I wake up and I check my New York Times daily email and I take fifty points of psychic damage. But of course, the one way … Read More
