Time flies when you’re producing a print paper for the first time in a year and a half — that’s how that goes, right?
Our editorial staff is made up of twelve Loyola students, many of whom are on staff for the first time this year. This semester has proven how hard work pays off, and that even in the midst of adjusting to in-person classes during an ongoing pandemic our staff and writers continue to produce kick-ass content.
In our first semester back to full operations we’ve produced an investigation about Loyola’s dining halls, been on the ground during protests in the city, broke news about Loyola’s athletics switching conferences, covered champions, chronicled Loyola students’ fashion choices, featured small business owners and so much more. I couldn’t be more proud of the people I work with.
Now, for the next few weeks we’ll be taking a much-needed break. But, no need to worry, we’ll still keep our finger on the pulse of what’s happening at Loyola and Rogers Park and our website will be updated as news breaks.
While we inform neighbors and students about all the news happening around us, we continue to learn how to be the best journalists possible for our community. Thank you for reading and teaching us.
We’re not leaving you empty handed — we have a great issue for you this week. In news, writer Aidan Cahill talked to a Loyola alum who participated in a D.C. hunger strike for climate change. A few of our editors break down Loyola’s future competitors in the A-10 conference in sports. Over in A&E the section’s assistant arts editor Paige Twenter gives an update on an upcoming feature film by a Loyola alumna.
