LMU Class of 2020

I am very pleased to finally make my college announcement...this fall I will be heading west and attending Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA. I could not be more excited to spend the next four years in my absolute favorite city! I applied to quite a few schools and I truly feel that LMU is where I am meant to spend my time for the next four years. I debated between LMU and one other school nearby, but ultimately decided LMU because of its incredible location, strong communications program and beautiful campus. 

When I was first looking into schools in California I immediately looked at the UC schools. These schools, however, are incredibly difficult to get into, and also, are much too large for my liking. I also feel that everything happens for a reason, and there's a reason I applied and was accepted to LMU. I feel that for me to succeed I need smaller class sizes so I am able to engage with my professors on a name to name basis, rather than sitting in a large lecture hall. So, as you can tell I am majoring in communications with a hope to pursue a career in social media management. 

Aside from my love of California, my main motive to attend school in Los Angeles was because of all the opportunities that come with it. Chicago is great city, don't get me wrong, but I feel that there are many more internships, jobs and connections out west. I am planning on continuing to blog while in college, especially because it truly goes hand in hand with my major. 

I'm so excited to share this news with you--and I'm sorry it was so delayed! I can't wait to see what adventures Los Angeles brings and I can't wait to start school in the fall! To the class of 2016, I wish you all the best in the future!



  1. Congrats Kate, this is SO exciting!! Long time no talk, but I still come by and read up on ya every now and then;) I do have a quick question though, I saw on your post about prom from last year that you got a spray tan, and I'm considering doing it for mine, but have never done it before! I'm scared it might go horribly wrong haha but do you have any tips on what to do before/ after and also how soon to get it before the dance? Thanks friend:))))

  2. Congrats Kate! I'm so glad you chose to come to California, and I can't wait for all of your college posts!
