Seven students had the vision of starting a student-run business at Loyola University Chicago. After crafting a business plan, it was passed to an entrepreneurship MBA class at Loyola's Quinlan School of Business as a case study. The students pitched the plan to the university and later assumed responsibility for a $3.2 million asset and launched the first student-run guesthouse in the nation. In 2010, The Flats at Loyola Station opened its doors.

Established by seven undergraduate students, with the vision of creating several student-run and managed businesses around campus, ChainLinks, our bike rental and repair business, launched in August of 2011.
