Students may have noticed the hustle and bustle around Loyola University Chicago’s Dumbach Hall this afternoon as a TV film crew set up outside to shoot a few scenes of the hit CW TV show Supernatural’s spin off pilot episode.

The pilot episode of “Supernatural: Bloodlines” will be a backdoor pilot. This means that it will air in “Supernatural” as a regular episode (Season 9 episode 20).

The spin off  “Supernatural: Bloodlines” has been filming in Vancouver. The show is in Chicago to film exterior scenes to be used in the episode.

The protagonists of the show are Ennis Roth (Lucien Laviscount) and David Hayden (Nathaniel Buzolic). Roth, the son of a cop, becomes a monster hunter after his fiancee gets killed. Hayden is a shapeshifter who gave up the monster life until the death of his brother pulls him back in.

Signs warning students that filming was in progress were posted around Dumbach Hall as were photo release signs. Students were allowed to watch the filming process from a short distance away. Background actors were positioned all around Dumbach Hall’s exterior.

When filming wrapped at around 1:40 p.m. students asked and were allowed to take photos with actor Nathaniel Buzolic.

“Bloodlines” would begin filming its first season in July if it gets the green light.

Vice president for student development steps down

Posted by loyolastudentdispatch on March 24, 2014

By Jillian Schwartz

Dr. Rob Kelly, Vice President for Student Development at Loyola University Chicago, has stepped down from his office for opportunities outside of the University.

Starting today, Ms. Jane Neufeld, Associate Vice President and Dean of Students, will serve as Interim Vice President for Student Development and Dean of Students.

The search for a new Vice President of Student Development will begin immediately.

Here are the full details from an email sent to the University:

Dear Loyola Community,

I’m writing to inform you of changes in the senior leadership of the Division of Student Development.

Dr. Rob Kelly, Vice President for Student Development, has stepped down from his office to pursue opportunities outside the University. Since joining Loyola in 2009, Rob has contributed to the enhancement of student life at Loyola in a number of significant ways. He orchestrated the creation of the Loyola Experience, the 4-year plan for student transformation and success; he led the implementation of the reimagine campaign that brought about both new and redesigned student facilities, including the Damen Student Center and new residence halls; and he expanded Wellness Center services at both lakeside campuses. Rob launched the student leadership honorary, the Maroon & Gold Society, expanded outdoor recreation programs, and promoted diversity on campus. His advocacy for our students has been most appreciated. Lastly, Rob contributed to greater collaboration between academic affairs and student development.

Dr. M. Grace Calhoun, Assistant Vice President and Director of Athletics, has accepted an appointment as Director of Recreation and Intercollegiate Athletics at the University of Pennsylvania, effective July 1. Grace has played an instrumental role in the rebirth of the Ramblers’ historic athletics program since joining us in 2011. She enhanced the integration of intercollegiate athletics into university life and fostered a transformative educational experience for Loyola’s student-athletes. She also successfully spearheaded Loyola’s move to the Missouri Valley Conference last July. Grace will continue to lead Athletics until mid-May.

Beginning Monday, March 24, Ms. Jane Neufeld, Associate Vice President and Dean of Students, will serve as Interim Vice President for Student Development and Dean of Students. As Associate Vice President, Jane chairs the Behavioral Concerns Team and supervises the Office of Student Conduct and Conflict, and Off Campus Student Life. She currently serves on the Council for Student Success and the Athletics Advisory Committee. She previously supervised Campus Recreation, Student Activities and Greek Affairs, the Student Union, and Student Diversity and Multicultural Affairs. Jane has served in various administrative roles at Loyola since 1987, including those with undergraduate admissions, student activities, orientation, and Water Tower Campus student life. She was on the steering committee for Loyola’s reaccreditation in 2005 and chaired the NCAA Self Study Equity subcommittee. Jane received her BA in Communication Arts from St. Norbert College in Wisconsin and a MEd in higher education from Loyola.

I wish to thank Rob, Grace, and Jane for their dedication to our students, and I appreciate the support of the entire Loyola community during this period of change and transition. The University will begin searches immediately for a Vice President of Student Development and a Director of Athletics with the assistance of national search firms.

Sincerely,

John P. Pelissero, PhD
Provost

M. Grace Calhoun

By Chris Lehman

Loyola University Chicago athletic director, M. Grace Calhoun, will become the director of recreational and intercollegiate athletics at the University of Pennsylvania.

Calhoun oversaw Loyola’s shift from the Horizon League to the Missouri Valley Conference and hired all-time great Sheryl Swoopes as the head women’s basketball coach.

The Ramblers currently have the top ranked men’s volleyball team in the country and have produced four Track & Field All-Americans since Calhoun’s arrival.

Current Penn AD, Steve Bilsky is set to retire on June 30th and Penn Provost, Vincent Price, made the announcement today that Calhoun will step in on July 1st.
