Three weeks in, classes have had an average of eight male attendants per week spread out amongst the 13 classes offered, according to attendance records. While...

Even though she knows what she is doing, Lily Cordingley, mass communication freshman, said she feels unwelcome in the weight room. “I know how to use the machines, but the way boys look at you skeptically makes you feel like you’re doing it wrong, even when you know you aren’t,” Cordingley...

Audubon Park Trail + Workout Circuits Even if you’ve only so much as toured Loyola, you’ve probably taken a stroll through New Orleans’ beautiful Audubon Park. Like the ‘Central Park,’ of Uptown, the park stretches from St. Charles Ave. all the way to the ‘muddy Mississippi.’ Half of the...

When I started college three years ago, I had no idea what to expect, but in those few weeks, before freshman year started, I was equal parts terrified and more excited than I had ever been. College was hard for me at first. When I got to Loyola, I was painfully shy. I came from a small town in central...

It was nearly midnight on the night of my high school graduation. I knew that I would have to come to grips with the reality of college, but it was something that I had never wanted to even think about. I felt like I was done with school, and couldn’t fathom committing myself to another four years...

Most college seniors will mark the end of their educational career in May of next year after getting their undergraduate degrees and moving onto a set path towards their desired career.

My morning routine included hitting the snooze button to gain an extra 10 minutes of sleep, followed by 10 minutes of sitting on my bed and thinking about how tired I was. And as I pushed my body out of bed, the vicious feelings of uncertainty began. I dreaded the day ahead. Stale coffee, a boss who’s...

Back in the dark ages of 2006, I received some harsh news from Loyola. An administrator told me that the Fall 2005 semester I spent at Santa Clara University, when Loyola was closed from Katrina, wasn’t going to get me out of my academic suspension.

Facebook sucks. Let’s be honest, all social media sucks when you get past the cute animal gifs. Beyond the cute animals are the updates about how awesome that former classmate of yours is doing. Seeing those updates can be a real bummer when you realize that they’re doing remarkably well,...

Foolishly, I believed as soon as I graduated, all I had to do was send someone a resume, wait to get called in for an interview and the job would be mine. Sometimes, harsh reality can be the most valuable instructor of our lives. I graduated from Loyola with a Bachelor’s degree in mass communication...
