This week Cold War Kids make their debut at the number one spot with their new album, Mine Is Yours, which drops today! “Finally Begin” is an unreleased song that hasn’t even hit the radio waves yet! Aren’t you lucky that you get to hear it before everyone else? This album is going to launch Cold War Kids into mainstream stardom if they haven’t achieved it already. Another band to keep an eye on is The Decemberists, who recently released their album, The King Is Dead.

Like bowling but wish it was different? Search no more! Down the street from Loyola lay Stoneleigh Lanes, which features 16 lanes of duckpin bowling. Yes, you heard me correctly: I said duckpin bowling. And no, it doesn’t involve ducks. Although the rules are similar to normal ten-pin bowling, duckpin bowling is not the bowling that you may be used to playing. Voted the “Best Bowling Alley” by Baltimore Magazine, Stoneleigh Lane’s duckpin bowling is a new and interesting way to bowl!

Swimming can be a very hard sport to follow but when you do develop the skills to be an avid and loyal fan, the benefits are endless. Loyola men’s and women’s swimming this year has been giving students so many reasons to follow these fine young athletes. From Freshman to Senior, each swimmer and diver has been contributing greatness to the name of Loyola Sports. Read the rest of this entry »

In Part 1 of this two part series, I spoke about Loyola’s offense needing some more passion and charisma. When looking at the other side of the court, the men’s basketball team seems to be lacking the power and strength that is needed to stay inside the paint and to keep other teams from penetrating and scoring. Also, it seems that the Greyhounds are not doing a great job at rebounds, which is a skill in which any nationally ranked team excels. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s the first movie night of the spring semester, and we’ve chosen Walk The Line, the 2005 biographical drama directed by James Mangold. The film is based on the life of country music artist Johnny Cash, played by Academy Award nominated actor Joaquin Phoenix. Much of the focus in the movie is on Cash’s youth, his romance with June Carter (played by actress Reese Witherspoon), his ascent to the country music scene, and how all of these factors impacted his life. Walk The Line was nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Actor (Joaquin Phoenix) and Best Actress (Reese Witherspoon).
You know the drill – we provide the popcorn. All you need to do is stop by!

Thus far, it can be said that Loyola Men’s Basketball Team has not had some of the greatest breaks when it comes to getting wins instead of losses. The Greyhounds, as of today, are now 8-9 overall, having a 4-3 record in our conference, the MAAC. However, it is something that can not be totally looked upon with resentment and disappointment. The Greyhounds have had a very tough schedule since the beginning of the season, taking on #15 Georgetown and division rival, Fairfield. Read the rest of this entry »

Dear Members of the Loyola Community,
The Loyola University Maryland community will celebrate a special Mass of Healing this Wednesday, Jan. 19, for Gregory Kelly, ’14, who is dealing with an extremely complicated and serious cardiac situation. Greg’s Mass will be celebrated at 9 p.m. in Alumni Memorial Chapel.
I encourage you to join us at this special Mass, because when the Loyola family faithfully gathers together in prayer for ‘one of our own,’ we best embody who we are as a Jesuit university community.
God’s blessings … and my thanks,
Rev. Jack Dennis, S.J.
Director of Campus Ministry

While the world was still reveling in the new year, Haiti, the poorest country in the Western hemisphere, was struck by a devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake that happened west of Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince, and the surrounding areas on January 12, 2010. At least 52 aftershocks were recorded within the following weeks, leaving approximately three million people affected by the disaster and over 230,000 fatalities. The earthquake also caused major damage to the structure of Haiti – many significant landmarks and buildings were destroyed, including the Presidential Palace, the National Assembly building, the Port-au-Prince cathedral and the main jail.
