In about 12 days, the day before Thanksgiving, the New Orleans Pelicans will be playing a game here in town in the Smoothie King Center.

Last week, a filming project on campus led to frustrations among students. Some voiced complaints that they couldn’t find parking. Others grew annoyed by the large presence of men carrying camera equipment clogging the Bobet Hall walkways. These minor grievances didn’t bother me much. I live on campus,...

After waking up after another late Wednesday night at school, one of the things that I enjoy is getting to see my five-year-old little brother in the morning. By the time I get to see him, we have not seen each other for a little more than 24 hours. One Thursday morning, he tells me that he has a message...

It’s that time of the year. The green of the leaves fade into warm hues of orange and yellow, the air is brisk, candy lines the aisles whilst Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” echoes throughout the market, and Halloween shops line their shelves with “sexy” female costumes in every occupation imaginable....

While Loyola openly advertises the University Counseling Center, many universities aren't as open. This may be the cause of why some students do not seek counseling. Today, more and more students...

Public transportation has a busload of issues

October 26, 2019

By: Ver Lumod As a commuter, I learned the hard way that public transportation in the United States has always been disconcertingly bad.
