Boulder brings changes to dining at Loyola in 2019

By Kaitlin Quigley

From a BBQ station to “Flatbread Fridays,” Boulder welcomes Loyola students back to campus with the unveiling of fresh, new, and creative changes to what is offered to students through their meal plans. Students can look forward to an expansion on the fry selection, including sweet potato fries and curly fries, as well as more meatless and plant-based options to serve a wider range of diets.

“We are always looking to improve our dining program so we use guest feedback from our surveys, comment cards and dining committee to make changes,” says Lindsay Winn, the marketing and wellness manager at Loyola. “The sweet potato waffle fries were a request from students on Instagram from when we served them at our Christmas dinner, and Curly ‘Fryday’ was a comment card we received.”

All new developments and changes in Boulder will be readily available upon the first day of the spring semester. The team at Boulder has been progressing through new training and acclimating to the new menu over break to become familiar with the changing dining options.

“In my opinion, I think Boulder-Q will be an exciting addition to bring a new genre of cuisine to campus that is made from scratch, and customizable with different meats and types of barbeque sauces,” says Winn, noting what changes she believes will be most enticing for the student body as the second semester begins.

As Boulder pushes to “stay with current trends as well as add variety” to its meal options, students can expect Loyola’s dining services to serve a larger audience than ever before.


Loyola visits “Today” Show

By Emilie Zuhowski

On Jan. 10, the Career Center took 10 Loyola students to New York City for a day of networking, education, and Greyhound pride. The group consisted of communication majors Mary Assile ’19, Bridget Ballard ’20, Madeleine Campbell ’19, Carmen Machalek ’19, Julia McColligan ’19, Austin Medina ’19, Beatrice Mills ’20, Colleen Verdic ’19, Cayla Wike ‘21, and Emilie Zuhowski ’20. The Greyhounds were selected through an application process based on experience and passion for the television industry.

Although it was early and temperatures were below freezing, the Greyhounds were at the show before the sun rose with signs and smiles. The group had the opportunity to get on-the-air, meet anchors like Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie, gain career advice from NBCUniversal employees, and have a private tour of the “Today” studios and control room.

“Visiting NBC Studios and seeing such a fast paced work environment for the first time opened my eyes to a world that I now see myself capable of entering if I really put in the effort,” Beatrice Mills ’20 said. “Most of all, this experience taught me to follow my passion and use that as fuel until I reach my goals.”


More developments in allegations of sexual abuse in the Catholic church

By Kaitlin Quigley

In the wake of the list of Jesuits released with credible sexual assault allegations against them, additional widely-renowned names in the Catholic church have surfaced with ties to sexual misconduct, including Rev. C John McCloskey, a high-profile priest in the Washington, D.C. area.

Allegations of sexual assault against McCloskey were settled with a $977,000 payout by Opus Dei in 2005, a Catholic organization with the objective of re-instilling Christian values in today’s society. A larger realization of the coverup arose in early January of this year.

Although Loyola has no further comment at this time regarding sexual misconduct in the Catholic church, the University’s most recent stance on these allegations is in regards to the list posted by the Maryland Province Society of Jesus, which can be found here.

Georgetown University, similar to Loyola in both its Jesuit tradition and its affiliations to a number of the Jesuits listed, released a statement in regards to the listed priests with a very similar outlook and goal to Loyola.

Georgetown University President, John DeGioia, states that “Our University is deeply committed to preventing and responding to sexual assault and misconduct and to protecting the most vulnerable among us— let us all take part in this responsibility.”

DeGioia’s words, which echo those of Rev. Linnane, are currently representative of the sexual assault crisis in the Catholic church as more allegations continue to come to the surface.
