    March Madness continues as the Final Four face off today. As usual, there’s a whole lot of trash talking going on and it looks like the nonagenarians and centenarians are the worst: Former Michigan Basketball star Jalen Rose’s 100 year old Grandma, Mary Belle Hicks,In what can only be called cyber-bullying Jalen Rose’s centenarian grandma called out Loyola’s Jean Dolores-Schmidt, better known as Sister Jean, on Instagram: "Sister Jean, it's been a good ride. But it's over Saturday. Go Blue,"Nonagenarian Sister Jean was not about to take this trash talk sitting down, figuratively speaking:Jean Dolores-Schmidt, aka Sister Jean Threatening a...

    The biggest college basketball fan during this year’s March Madness tournament is a 98-year-old nun by the name of Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, Loyola-Chicago’s team chaplain. Sister Jean Dolores, who was on hand to celebrate Loyola-Chicago’s buzzer beater victory over Miami, has been the basketball team’s chaplain since 1994, but has been a Ramblers fan for most of her life, witnessing the last time Loyola-Chicago won a tournament game, years ago. While the nun provides spiritual support and openly prays for victories for the team often asking the Higher Power to do his part so the team can do theirs,...

    When administrators at Loyola University Maryland got wind of a planned campus-wide student party with a "Party in the USA" theme, they say they began hearing concerns that students might show up in offensive costumes related to this month's presidential election. In a series of emails, administrators urged Student Government Association members sponsoring the party to reconsider the theme, which they characterized as potentially divisive and harmful.

    Student government leaders at Loyola University Maryland faced a barrage of pressure from the university administration to change the theme of a senior class party described as “very alienating, divisive and harmful” and against the university’s “core values,” according to emails provided to The Daily Caller. The theme? America. ). The theme for Loyola’s annual “Senior 200s” party — one of four celebrations exclusive to seniors held throughout the year — was based upon a survey of Loyola seniors taken last summer. The party was held on Nov. 18 and went off without a hitch, according to students who attended,...

    When Catholic colleges and universities embrace diversity, Catholics should worry. “Loyola University Chicago recently christened a new pagan student club, with its student organizer saying the group aims to help pupils at the private Catholic college find the God they seek, not just the one featured in the Bible,” Dominic Lynch, a student there, wrote on The College Fix on October 23, 2014. I’ll bet they didn’t have a hard time finding a faculty adviser. “The Loyola Student Pagan Alliance was granted official recognition by the university earlier this month by its Student Activities and Greek Affairs board,” Lynch reported....

President Clinton’s nephew, an undergraduate student, is participating in the commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 7, 2016. “President Clinton is one of the great statesmen of our time, and he will address our students as they embark on the next stage of their lives,” Snyder said. “His commitment to improving the lives of other people, during and beyond his career in U.S. politics, embodies the ethos of becoming women and men with and for others.

    Loyola University Chicago recently christened a new pagan student club, with its student organizer saying the group aims to help pupils at the private Catholic college find the God they seek, not just the one featured in the Bible. “Loyola’s mission states that ‘seeking God in all things’ is one of the main tenants of the university,” said the group’s student president, Jill Kreider, in an email to The College Fix. “While the mission primarily focuses on the Abrahamic God, there is no reason a Pagan student (or a Hindu, Baha’i or Sikh student) cannot seek using his or her...

    At the second annual Hanway Lecture in Global Studies at Loyola University Maryland Oct. 22, former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell suggested that, despite his prestige, he is now just an ordinary person. “I’m just (another) guy on the street now,” Powell said, after noting tongue in cheek that he no longer has his own airplane, which he “misses very badly.” Powell also no longer has bodyguards – which he says were conspicuous even when he simply wanted to walk down a New York City block to buy a hotdog. The former four-star general spoke candidly before several thousand...

    It certainly makes for a good story: a scrappy kid from Baltimore flunks out of an English class at what is now Loyola University Maryland only to become an international bestselling author. The problem is that the oft-told tale concerning Tom Clancy is just as fictitious as Jack Ryan. “It was an urban legend that just wouldn’t die,” said Carol Abromaitis, the English professor accused of giving Clancy an F in her class. For decades, Abromaitis urged English majors to let others know the truth. Her efforts bore little fruit. “One major said to me, ‘Of course not. It makes...

    An event this past Wednesday at Loyola University Chicago featuring former Obama administration official Van Jones strayed far from the marketed title of “2013 MLK Celebration,” instead encouraging students to embrace a “new patriotism” and the “ugly-unequal founding” of America. Several students reported that they were compelled by their “environmental sustainability” professor to attend the radical lecture—students who up until that evening told me they had no prior familiarity with Van Jones. One student interviewed said approximately thirty students attended this class.

    The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola translated by Elder Mullan [1914] These are the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, a plan of contemplation to be carried out over about a month. St. Ignatius of Loyola (1419-1556) was the founder of the Jesuits, and was canonized by Pope Gregory XV in 1622. He published the Spiritual Exercises in 1548. The Exercises were intended for use during a retreat; and are a central part of the first year training of Jesuit novitiates. However, one does not have to be a Jesuit-in-training to take advantage of the Exercises:...

    One day next month every student at Loyola Law School Los Angeles will awake to a higher grade point average. But it’s not because they are all working harder. The school is retroactively inflating its grades, tacking on 0.333 to every grade recorded in the last few years. The goal is to make its students look more attractive in a competitive job market...

    Loyola College's Jesuit tradition calls for it to serve students who did not start with every economic, social or geographic advantage. Widespread research, meanwhile, shows that standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT favor those from privileged backgrounds and that such tests are less predictive of college success than excellent grades and a rigorous course load in high school. So, in search of a more diverse and accomplished student body, Loyola has joined a growing list of colleges and universities that no longer require applicants to submit an SAT or ACT score. ... Test-optional policies might calm the widespread...

    Los Angeles police arrested a 21-year-old Loyola Marymount University student in connection with an online threat warning that there would be a shooting on campus. Police arrested Carlos Huerta, a senior at Loyola, for investigation of making criminal threats. Huerta was taken into custody last night near his apartment on campus. Authorities say Huerta is under investigation for posting a message that he would shoot and kill as many people as possible on campus before being killed himself by police. The anonymous threat appeared on a blog called Juicycampus.com, used primarily by college students.

    Cardinal Roger Mahony has honored Jesuit Fr. Robert Lawton, president of Loyola Marymount University of Los Angeles, as one of the recipients of the 2008 Cardinal’s Award, according to a story in the Sept. 21 edition of the Tidings, the weekly newspaper of the Los Angeles archdiocese. Since 1999, Lawton has had “the vision to integrate the university into all aspects of community life of Los Angeles,” said the Tidings’ article. Under Lawton, the archdiocese and the university have enjoyed amicable relations. With the archdiocese’s Hindu-Catholic Dialogue, the university offered an April 2005 symposium featuring “ecofeminist” Rosemary Radford Ruether, who...

    During a heated debate in a class I teach on social justice, several US Marines who had done tours in Iraq told me that they had "sacrificed" by “serving” in Iraq so that I could enjoy the freedom to teach in the USA. Parroting their master’s slogan about “fighting over there so we don’t have to fight over here,” these students proudly proclaimed that they terrorized and killed defenseless Iraqis. They intimated that their Arab victims are nothing more to them than collateral damage, incidental to their receipt of some money and an education. Sunday, February 11— A room full...
