Hello, Hounds! My name is Victoria, and I’m a sophomore speech-language hearing science major from Naples, Fla.
I knew I wanted to come to Loyola when I was 8 years old. Both of my older sisters are alumni, so I had been to my fair share of move-ins, family weekends, and lacrosse games before I even enrolled as a first-year last fall.
It’s almost a family tradition at this point; we are Greyhounds at heart.
In my short time here, Loyola has led me to my passion, allowed me to find my niche on campus, and has given me the resources to pursue the things I truly love.
I have fallen in love with, of course, my major, but also the comfort of my home away from home.
Aside from the wonderful honor of blogging for A Hound’s Life, I am a resident assistant for first-year students, treasurer of the BEElieve club, and an active member of several other clubs on campus. These include Action for Autism, NSSLHA, SCECC, American Sign Language, and Operation Smile!
Through these clubs and the Center for Community Service and Justice (CCSJ), I have been able to serve individuals and families of the Baltimore community, while also developing my own personal growth through guidance, selflessness, and love.

When my Loyola graduation rolls around in 2019 (and after three boxes of tissues), I hope to continue my education and follow a career helping patients in the medical field with speech-language deficits associated with brain injuries and disorders.
Luckily, this is still a few years away, and I have some more time to enjoy Loyola before graduating and entering the “real world.”
Sophomore year, for me, is about study abroad info sessions, lacrosse games, spending way too much time in the Study, and adventuring into Baltimore with friends.
