Deep Note: Woodward to Speak at Loyola Commencement


Loyola’s commencement is getting a little bigger. Maybe, the hungry local university is just following the money. Legendary journalist Bob Woodward will deliver the address at the May 9 ceremony already packed with notable names.


Loyola Replaces Letters After "YOLO" Theft


by Stacy Coco

Loyola's sign on St. Charles Avenue has its letters back after Lundi Gras' "YOLO" theft. On March 3, the letters were strewn with beads then turned up missing. The respective letters that were stolen were L-O-Y-O-which coincidentally spell out YOLO rearranged-leaving just the letters L and A.


Loyola Students Protest Budget Cuts (PHOTOS)


by Stacy Coco 

Loyola students from the theater, sociology, and psychology departments rallied around the Danna Student Center today to protest budget cuts being throughout the university. Due to the cuts, the university has seen 18 staff laid off. In April, contracts will not be renewed for 12 non-tenured faculty members. Some have voluntarily left on severance pay. 


The Boot Named Best College Bar in the Nation


The Boot has made plenty of memories for Tulane and Loyola (and perhaps some younger) students that they're unlikely to forget, even if they want to. According to a national magazine, the Broadway watering hole is also the "ideal place" to get drunk during college. The Daily Meal recently surveyed college bars across the country, and The Boot kicked all other campus canteens from the top of the list.


Room 220: 'The Shallows' of the Internet at Loyola


from Press Street's Room 220

Loyola University New Orleans will host Nicholas Carr, author of The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 17, in Roussel Hall (corner of St. Charles Ave. and Calhoun St.) on the university’s main campus. 


Cokie Roberts, Harry Shearer to Speak at Loyola


Usually pushing forward with the day's news, levee criticism or jokes, Cokie Roberts and Harry Shearer aren't much for looking back. But Loyola will find the news diva and comedian in nostalgic moods in separate events over the next week. Roberts is scheduled to speak at the Uptown university Thursday, while Shearer takes the stage Monday, April 8. 


Donna Brazile Stirs Pot at Loyola Tonight


Polarized politics are on the rise in Louisiana, and Kenner native Donna Brazile is coming to Loyola to cook up some controversy. The university snagged the political pundit and big shot academic to give a lecture in her home state, and everyone is welcome to come to tonight’s free event.


Room 220: Novelist Carmen Boullosa at Loyola


from Room 220

Mexican novelist Carmen Boullosa will give a presentation related to her new Spanish-language novel, Tejas, at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 7, in Nunemaker Auditorium on Loyola University New Orleans’ campus (6363 St. Charles Ave.). Boullosa is one of Mexico’s leading novelists, poets and playwrights.


Loyola University Student Raped on Campus


by Mary Kilpatrick (Updated 3:20 p.m.)

A Loyola student was raped by an acquaintance in the university parking garage Friday morning around 4:12 a.m., according to the Loyola University Police Department. Loyola University spokeswoman Meredith Hartley said the university is working with the New Orleans police department in the investigation. She said the rapist was a known acquaintance of the victim.


Today in New Orleans 11.29.12


This Thursday, fight the stupids at Maple Street Book Shop, or learn about social change with filmmakers from all over the world. Enjoy jazz downtown, or head to the Ogden for some after hours fun. Happy Birthday to clarinetist, bandleader, and educator Dr. Michael White, born November 29, 1954.
