Leo (July 22 – Aug. 23) You may question your natural “joie de vivre” and self-confidence as you approach this new chapter in your life, don’t. It’s okay to shut out people if they are too much for you. Stay away from confining spaces, wet weather and embrace the Louis...

  June 28 is not a date which will live in infamy. No, for those of us in the Loyola community, it is a date which we remember fondly as having welcomed those who purport to bring news of our damnation with open arms so that we could smother them with a message of love and acceptance for all. ...

Brunch, more so than any other meal time, is dedicated to slowing down for just a moment to really be mindful and think about the week we’ve had, eat an amazing meal and enjoy good company....

Derek Taylor and Skylar Allen are two student performers making a name for themselves, both as separate artists and collaborators, outside the Loyola sphere. Growing up on different sides of the country, the friends met at Loyola and have quickly made their own fan bases and gotten a taste of what i...

While I don’t have the funds for buying records like I did in high school, I live for the rare day when I can scrape two coins together (or ignore a meal) and get my hands on a new LP. Thankfully, the Crescent City is quite a haven for cratediggers and, even more opportune, there are SOME shops that...

Imagine leaving the confines of student housing to sign off on a bigger jail than you just got out of. Try idealizing your first legitimate apartment and the ways you’ll accent it, the place you’ll cohabitate with friends you’ve made, only to be plagued with rat infestations, roaches, broken...

New Orleans is known for plenty of things, but cold weather is most certainly not one of them. So on Wednesday, Jan. 13, when snow was in the forecast, it was difficult to be sure how to handle it. Many problems arise with freezing temperatures, something few southerners are equipped to deal with. “The...

It was Michael Olausen’s first weekend of classes as a resident assistant for the university when Hurricane Isaac cut a destructive path over New Orleans in August 2012. Anyone on campus who could not evacuate before the storm was sent into lockdown in Biever Hall, Loyola’s freshmen-only residence...

As I am sure you can tell by the purple, green and gold everywhere, Mardi Gras season has arrived. This may be your first experience with Mardi Gras, or maybe you are a seasoned parade goer with strong opinions about the neutral ground side versus sidewalk side.

On Sat, Oct. 21, I wandered around an office complex in Metairie until I found what I was looking for: a professional testing center. It was a place I hadn’t known existed until I registered for the GRE, and when I entered the office I knew why. It was freezing cold and incredibly sterile, as if germs...
