When I set sail for Florida State University as a Freshman back in the 1986, I left behind any interest in continuing to practice my childhood Catholic faith. I was happy to run toward the bliss of adult independence and jump into freedom from the imposition of childish rules, like having to go to ch...

I got there earlier than everyone, hours earlier, as I was excited to help with the coverage of a protest on Loyola's campus. And as my fellow staff members started trickling into the office,...

I spent my Thursday morning outside of Loyola at the counter protest. I was angry and, like many others, felt an obligation to stand up for my values against people who were so aggressively opposed to them. I stood there on St. Charles Ave. surrounded by all of my friends and allies until the protesters...

I joined the honors program for my second semester at Loyola but found that the courses were too difficult for me, so I left the program. I didn’t foresee having any problems leaving honors and I definitely never thought I would be writing an op ed to warn you about it, but here I am. When I was...

After a few months of migration, the caravan of Latin American immigrants reached the southern border of the United States on seeking asylum, and I hope that all of them get in. Originally numbering in the thousands, the caravan has shrunk dramatically since it started to 150 to 300 people. Most of them we...

I have had a very personal relationship with Apple. When I was growing up, that was the popular technology service to go to. It was cool, fun and modern and I definitely wanted to be a part of the cool kids club. I was ten years old when the 6th generation iPod came out, and it was one of the best day...
