I Love Loyola

Last Wednesday night, I was leaving the Loyola campus at 1:00 AM. It was raining. I was tired, hungry, and I had just finished a practice trial for the Byrne Trial Advocacy Team. But, honestly, I wouldn’t have it any other way (well, actually, if I am truly being honest, I would have had some food).

I love being on the Byrne Team. I really love it. It is challenging, takes all of my extra time, makes me crazy sometimes, but it is so unbelievably rewarding. I can’t imagine a better training program for advocates. I also have crazy good public speaking skills now (not to brag or anything).

On top of all of the practical skills I’ve learned, I’ve met some of my best friends because of the team. When you spend so much time together (this 1:00 AM end time is not unusual), you get extremely close. You also need someone to lament to when things pass the point of challenging and reach DEFCON 1.

Last year, I liked Loyola. I probably loved it, but now it is a head-over-heels love. And honestly, I owe that to Byrne. Happy Valentine’s Month Loyola!
