Letter to the Editor: Loyola must provide more for students

Lauren Joyner and David Gold

February 1, 2013

Anyone who has gone to Loyola in the last few years knows that this school has a problem with freshmen retention. The administration has explained this with excuses ranging from severe weather to partying on the weekends. Th...

Letter to the Editor: More change needed outside of allocations


January 25, 2013

As president of the Loyola Economics Club I recently attended the President's meeting to discuss SGA allocations. I was pleasantly surprised to hear from Logan McCabe, 
SGA's vice president of finance, about how the allocation pr...

Letter to the Editor: College Democrats is necessary

Dwayne Fontenette Jr.

January 18, 2013

During the final stage of the (absurdly long) SGA club charter review process last fall, I stood before the SGA Senate to explain and defend the need for the College Democrats. Some senators expressed concern that the existen...

Letter to the Editor: Increasing retention requires community


November 29, 2012

Once upon a time, administrators tried to scare students into staying in college. When I was a freshman in 1989, I received the traditional matriculation speech: "Look to your left, look to your right; one of them will not be...

Letter to the Editor: Use of “girl” can be demeaning

Marissa Gentner

October 31, 2012

Although I do not believe that this was a direct or intentional attack on women, the way that two of the articles in the Oct. 12 edition of the Maroon were titled really struck a nerve with me. Perhaps the most obviously disturbing ar...

Letter to the Editor: Budget issue is complex and needs great thought

Rev. Kevin Wildes, S.J.

October 24, 2012

In light of recent stories in The Maroon about the university's budget, I thought it would be helpful if I publically explained some things about how Loyola's budget operates. Let me start by saying what the budget is not. Loyol...

Letter to the Editor: Krewe leader experience is rewarding

Hoda Essa

October 10, 2012

As a commuter, I'm always looking for my niche here on campus. I tried a variety of organizations and they just didn't quite fit. I remember walking into my orientation and seeing a group of 10 students with bright yellow sh...

Letter to the Editor: Housing situation seems greedy

Theresa Bullington

October 3, 2012

It is apparent to the casual observer that there are more students on campus this year than there were last year, or in several previous years. If any current senior or junior has walked through Biever Hall recently, they mi...

Letter to the Editor: We should not endorse drinking

Salvadore A. Liberto

September 27, 2012

Dear Editors of the Maroon, I was disappointed with your choice of a front-page story in your Friday, Sept. 14 edition. The usually excellent work that you do to inform and edify our community was lacking in your odd lead story...

Letter to the Editor: RAs require no additional compensation

Michael Olausen

September 20, 2012

I am a sophomore Resident Assistant in Biever Hall this year, and after reading Jordan Harbaugh's article concerning the "exploitation of RAs," I could not sit back and let these comments go without refutation. While I agree with him...

Letter to the Editor: Reaction to Isaac positive but flawed


September 12, 2012

New Orleans is no stranger to hurricanes. Most of the country is aware of this. Isaac, however, was my first experience with a hurricane. Being from Dallas, I am used to my share of tornadoes and tornado warnings. I know the s...

Letter to the Editor: Treatment of Loyola RAs is exploitative


September 6, 2012

It appears that Loyola's "Master Plan" isn't so masterful after all, or possibly its mastery lies in the exploitation of its hardest working employees - resident assistants. RAs do a huge amount of work to make Loyola's residential bui...
