What attracted me to CURL:

Since coming to Loyola, I have discovered that I have a strong interest in social justice, diversity, and working with the community. After taking part in engaged learning courses, I have learned that the Loyola community embodies not only our small campus, but the entirety of Rogers Park and the city of Chicago. Witnessing the work CURL does with community-based research is something that I find extremely satisfying.

What I hope to gain from CURL:

Through joining the CURL team, I hope to be inspired by the work of my peers and gauge a better understanding of the many diverse social issues in our community. By the end of my time here, I hope to truly understand where my passions lie.
