9290135-1What: Lafayette vs. Loyola; Lehigh vs. Loyola

When: Friday November 1st, 7:00PM; Saturday November 2nd, 4:00PM

The Loyola Women’s Volleyball Team will be hosting a weekend of conference volleyball to kick off the month of November. The Hounds kicked off a long month of conference games in the Patriot League with a very respectable 1-2 record, slowly working their way back into contention.

The last month of the season presents a lot of opportunities for home match-ups at Reitz Arena. The Hounds currently find themselves in the middle of the pack in the Patriot League, with a chance for a couple of statement matches at home.

First, on Friday November 1st, they will play host to the Lafayette Leopards, who currently occupy the basement of the Patriot League for women’s volleyball. The Hounds then have an opportunity to make a big statement in a home match against the American Eagles, who are at the top of the conference with an almost flawless record on the season.

Start off your November right by coming out and supporting the Hounds at Reitz Arena!

RadioEdu Week 04

October 18th, 2013 by Jonathan Prozzi

Concepts: Introduction to Effects, Project Planning, Homework Help Newscast

This week we learned about effects and how engineers and producers use them to enhance their production. We began with an introduction to Reverb and a discussion about natural echo and room size. As an experiment I had the students list times when they were in different size rooms and to describe the sound. We determined that the sound in the school auditorium would be different than the sound in a bathroom, and this was the perfect transition into talking about Reverb.

As RadioEdu is project-based, I had the students load a guitar and vocal sample onto an empty audio track and then add Reverb to the effects rack. The students learned about wet and dry mixes, and this drew an analogy to cooking. Once confident with the ‘flavor’ of Reverb, the students brainstormed a project to demonstrate its use.

Proof of Concept:

The students created a story about a caveman where the dialogue would have Reverb on it, as the lines were spoken inside a cave. They determined that they didn’t want the Reverb on the narrator’s voice, but only the dialogue. This was an example of Project Planning in action, as the students were thinking about how to integrate effects into their productions, but also noticed that they would need to determine a method to isolate the parts that they wanted impacted.

Evolving from their interview practice in the previous weeks, the students developed and recorded an introductory ‘homework help’ show where they would create weekly segments detailing math questions and strategies of the week, as well as study tips, vocab words, etc.

Review: Melophobia – Cage the Elephant

October 17th, 2013 by Billy Dries

MelophobiaCage The Elephant


Letter Grade: B


Melding together the upbeat songwriting that made their first two albums so successful, with a distinctly more lo-fi sound, the third release from Bowling Green Alt-rockers, Cage the Elephant, continues to drive more traditional Rock N Roll into the mainstream.  Melophobia, the follow up to 2011’s wildly successful Thank You, Happy Birthday, starts off with two fast paced jams before slowing down in the third track, Telescope, a slow moving, somewhat sad, surf guitar fueled little ditty that is stuck somewhere in between The Beach Boys and Mac Demarco.
