5 Reasons Why Lollapalooza Is the Greatest Event Of The Summer

As a student, summer is a time to relax and have fun with friends and family, but if you're from the Chicago area, chances are, there is one thing that you wait for all summer long, LOLLAPALOOZA! Lollapalooza is undoubtedly the greatest festival of all time, and here is a list to prove why it is so amazing.

1. Amazing music from every genre

Why would you go to Lollapalooza for anything but the music? Throughout the years, Lolla has hosted some of the top names in every category, names like: Metallica, Marshmello, Chance the Rapper, and Chris Stapleton.


With Lolla being one of the biggest festivals in the world, food venders from far and wide take notice of the opportunity to get their name out there. Anything from a burger to gourmet lobster corn dogs can be found down in 'Chow Town'.

3. Happiness:)

When you wait all year for a music festival like Lolla, it is very hard to be angry or upset when it finally arrives. Everyone at Lolla is filled with joy and love for the music and the people present. The happiness at Grant Park might be one of the best things about the festival as a whole.


What makes one of the greatest music festivals of all time even better? You put it in the greatest city in the world, Chicago! The city skyline with the sunset in the background while you are waiting for that nights headliner makes the whole experience so memorable. (it also makes for a great picture!)

5. Long ass train rides

As horrible as they sound, the train rides are a crucial part of the experience as a whole. The train rides allow for anticipation to build on the way there and for time to wind down on the way back. In a way, I feel like some of the best memories that I have from Lolla were made on the train.

Now that I have shared what I think the 5 best things about Lolla are, lets get ready for this year! Rock on everyone!

Falling For Fall

Super Cute Home Decor and Food Ideas for the Autumn Season.

Jamie Cahoon

I don't know about you but Autumn is my favorite season of the year. The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and tops of the mountains begin to be sprinkled with snow. Being as I'm not Haloween's biggest fan, I love to decorate my home with super cute fall decorations. I have found 11 of the cutest DIY decor items that are both inexpensive and adorable. Ballin' on a college kids budget makes for fun craft nights instead of buying the items at a ridiculous mass produced price.

Slavery Was NOT Abolished

Jeevti from Pakistan would like to tell you so herself.


Unfortunately, at this time of year, we tend to overlook how incredibly blessed we are. We live in a free world, where we should not have to fear being penalized for our gender, sexual orientation, beliefs, or values. This is a fact we take for granted; in many other countries, simply being born female makes you an immediate target.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.
