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.

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.
