For the first 50 years, Loyola was mainly a commuter university, but since the 1960s Loyola has grown to be a much more residential campus. Today, Loyola has four residence halls and 1,308 students who live on campus. But back in the early 1960s, it only had renovated houses as dorms, no real residenti...

War: what is it good for? Learning about history, of course. Students at Loyola in the late 1930s and early 1940s had a great deal to say about the politics of their time, most notably about World War II, and they took to The Maroon to say it.

In an era of supposed equality, where men and women of all races are widely accepted, it is difficult for some to remember how different the world was 50 years ago, when minorities were fighting just to gain acceptance into a university. These struggles, though, were well documented throughout the ye...

The first plant that was smoked regularly on Loyola's campus was tobacco. In April 1940, The Maroon reported a story titled "Tobacco Business Healthy in Colleges, Survey smokers." Three decades and a few wars later, Loyola students moved on to a different drug of choice. In November 1973, The Maroon r...

April Fools' Day- it's that good old day today, so don't believe anything you read. This is particular true of the things you may read in this Maroon. It's all in fun and The Maroon sincerely hopes that no one will be offended. We've lampooned quite a few students and of course some of the facul...

If I could use one word to describe my experiences throughout the duration of World Youth Day, that word would be "intimate." Sitting on an airplane shoulder-to-shoulder with the friends who are traveling to World Youth Day with you, sleeping on a hard marble floor with less than an inch between you and ...

  What makes a man? I'm not talking about in a hyper-masculine, John Wayne, what sets the men apart from the boys sense; I mean literally: how do we as a society determine what is male and what is female? As a society, we are prescribed a binary two-sex schema. The binary set-up indicates that w...
