Loyola Student Dispatch

Bringing Breaking News to Loyola University Chicago


Loyola Student Dispatch is Loyola University Chicago’s unofficial, student-run breaking news service. Its mission is to capture events on and around campus as they happen, and to inform the Loyola community as quickly as possible.

With breaking news, LSD will often aggregate a story from a reputable news source, then assign a student reporter to follow up with original reporting and an original story.

Students file posts two ways:

  • Aggregated posts attributed to the original source.
  • Originally reported and written news  stories.

Media outlets, bloggers and other publishers are free to use information from Loyola Student Dispatch. We ask only that you credit us as the source of the information.

Loyola Student Dispatch is a student-run, not-for-profit enterprise. Loyola Student Dispatch does not sell advertisements or make money. Any ads that may appear on the site are generated by our web host WordPress.

    Thank you Loyola Dispatch for timely reporting of events on and around campus.

  6. Congratulations to Loyola University and it’s search committee for hiring Brian Schmisek, Ph.D. as your new Director of Pastoral Studies! I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Schmisek in my capacity as Director of Development for both Holy Trinity Seminary in Dallas and the Museum of Biblical Art. You will find this man to be highly capable, driven to excellence in all aspects of life and filled with a deep, abiding love of his Catholic faith. These traits, along with enumerable others, will continue to set him apart as a leader in innovation–stretching faculty, students and even donors–to reach new heights. Although the Dallas and North Texas Catholic community will deeply miss his influence, we can only hope he flourishes in the beauty and academic excellence to be found at Loyola!

    — Patricia Martin, Director of Development, Museum of Biblical Art, Dallas, Texas.
