"The American way of life is a blessed one," said George Bush during his presidency. Instead of giving into pressures to make America conserve energy and cut back on consumerism, he fought for us to be able to continue our current way of life. However, as other developing countries improve their qua...

With more emphasis than ever on environmental sustainability and the greening of college campuses, it is vital that Loyola make efforts to recycle the materials generated by the entire community. The university's recycling program hopes to encourage environmental awareness and support responsible consumpti...

Merriam-Webster Online defines bureaucracy as "a body of non-elective government officials; an administrative policy-making group; a government characterized by specialization of functions, adherence to fixed rules, and a hierarchy of authority; or a system of administration marked by officialism, re...

EDITORIAL: Graduate students lack representation throughout campus

The Maroon

Filed under Editorial

Graduate students: who are they? We realized that we didn't know the answer to that question, nor do we feel the university as a whole does. The issue was raised after the conclusion of this year's Student Government Association elections. As usual, no graduate students participated in the election ...

Recently, The Maroon published an On the Record column by Dr. Daniel D'Amico, and I would like to thank him for his courage in criticizing the school's drug policy. The War on Drugs is a misleading title; it gives the appearance that the enemy is drug abuse. This is not a war on drugs, though. This is...

In my 39-year business career, I have never seen a company pay any employee their salary while allowing that employee to spend the greater part of a year searching for a better job. However, that is exactly what happened during the last presidential campaign. All of the senators who were candidates for presi...

Last Friday, I threw caution to the wind and skipped two classes to attend the TEACH Town Hall Meeting in Roussel Hall. Unfortunately, I was left wanting for honesty and frankness after the panel ended. There are few things I care more about in the world than public education, and recently, it is an ...

Never before has it seemed that school has had such a tight grip on my life as it does this, my junior, year. Going to class is the easy part; it's the SPSS statistics assignments, the research papers, the term papers, the art projects and all of the other various assignments that are constantly gn...

To the editors: I'm writing in response to The Maroon's article, "Burst fire sprinkler floods Carrollton Hall," which was published on March 25. Although it is understandable that The Maroon had little time to respond to that Wednesday's flooding of Carrollton Hall, I'm surprised your newspaper did not h...

Mornings are usually the same for me. I'm usually running late because I couldn't bring myself to get out of bed until 8:10 a.m. Knowing that I have a 30-minute commute, I rush to wash my teeth and brush my face, dressing while packing my backpack and lunch. Then I kiss my waffle goodbye and stuff my ...

Time and time again I've been given the same piece of advice: "you can't compare yourself to anyone else." Parents, siblings, friends and teachers – everyone, it seems, believes whole-heartedly in this one simple adage. Why is it, then, that everywhere I turn, someone else is judging me for my...
