I want to be able to study on the third floor of the Monroe Library without being subjected to adult cartoon characters screeching, “Pickle Rick!” Is that too much to ask? When I first toured Loyola I was told that each floor gets progressively quieter, with the third floor being silent, but...

What do you want the senior gift to be? Lilly Suthon, criminology and psychology sophomore "I guess what I think would be a really great senior gift would be if maybe the seniors who were graduating would leave behind their textbooks, or just other materials that they've had, for students who are incoming into their majors or minors.

If Paul Pastorek thought he knew campus before, he knows it a lot better now. Hours of being grilled by faculty, students and The Maroon editorial board will do that. It’s the tale of Pastorek’s first week on campus — going around and getting input from organizations, in much the same way...

We knew it was coming. We just didn’t think it would be so soon. That’s the reaction campus had to the shocking news that Interim Provost David Borofsky resigned, meaning we can add “search for provost” to “search for president” on the university’s to-do list. The immediacy and total...
