Unauthorized person gains entry to Loyola dorm

Posted by loyolastudentdispatch on April 2, 2014

By Jillian Schwartz

Two Loyola University Chicago students reported that an unauthorized person entered their locked Regis room and repositioned belongings while they were out.

Loyola’s Campus Safety sent a reminder email to students reminding them to keep their doors locked, but is the reminder enough?

Earlier this week, a University of Illinois at Chicago student was assaulted when an unauthorized man entered the dorm.

UIC has stepped up their safety patrols, requiring guests to sign-in during daytime hours, but Loyola has not made any announcement about upping their police patrols.

In this case, the Loyola students’ door was locked, so students are looking to the unversity to increase security measures beyond a reminder email.

Here is the full email from Campus Safety:

Loyola Community,
Campus Safety is writing to inform you of an unauthorized entry to a residence hall room that was reported to Residence Life and Campus Safety staff. Two students reported they returned to their locked room in Regis and it was obvious that belongings in the room had been repositioned while they were out of their room.
Please follow these safety tips for the residence halls:
  • Always lock your door whenever you leave your room.
  • Do not lend your room key or ID to any other person.
  • Always escort your guests and only check-in people you know.
  • Everyone must swipe their ID to gain access to residence halls. Do not hold gates/doors for others to gain access.
  • Report all suspicious persons and activities to Campus Safety and Residence Life staff immediately.
Tom Murray
Chief of Police and Director of Campus Safety

Loyola’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts presents Hot Mikado

Posted by loyolastudentdispatch on April 1, 2014

by Mariah EvelyScreen Shot 2014-04-01 at 10.26.22 AM

Loyola University Chicago’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts (DFPA) will end its 2013-2014 main stage theatre season with Hot Mikado by David H. Bell and music by Rob Bowen, directed by Sarah Gabel.

The musical focuses on Ko-Ko, Nanki-Poo, and Yum-Yum–three characters captured in a love triangle, which results in hilarious complications. The musical’s long history of adaptations and revivals has led to a combination of research for Loyola’s own production.

The following information is from Inside Loyola:

Hot Mikado opens Friday, April 4, and runs through Sunday, April 13. An American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter will be signing at the Friday, April 11 performance. Thursday through Saturday evening performances begin at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday matinees begin at 2 p.m. A preview night will be held Thursday, April 3 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10–$20, with discounts available for students, alumni, faculty, staff, and senior citizens. Preview tickets are available for $5 at the door.

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.

Quinlan School of Business receives $10 million

Posted by loyolastudentdispatch on March 20, 2014

by Mariah Evely

Alumni John C. Schreiber and Kathy Schreiber donated a $10 million gift to Loyola’s Quinlan School of Business on March 20, 2014. The gift will go toward the construction of a new facility for the business school to be named the John and Kathy Schreiber Center.

Here is the full information from Father Michael J. Garanzini, S.J.:

Mr. Schreiber graduated from our school of business in 1968 and went on to Harvard Business School and a successful career in real estate investment management. He and Kathy have raised a family of eight children and have twelve grandchildren. They have dedicated their gift to F. Virgil Boyd and Raymond C. Baumhart, S.J., deans of the business school during Mr. Schreiber’s time there who provided him with inspiration and guidance. The Schreibers have been significant supporters of many educational institutions in the Chicago area, including Loyola University Chicago, where they established a scholarship endowment fund in 2008 for students from Lake County, Illinois. This $10 million donation for a new facility constitutes a special gift to Loyola University Chicago. It is a testament to the excellence of our past faculty and administrators and an investment in the future of business education at Loyola.

The Schreiber Center will be a state-of-the-art, environmentally sustainable facility that will inspire collaboration, learning, and great debate, transforming the way we deliver—and our students benefit from—our world-class business education. The 10-story building will feature advanced classrooms, innovative social spaces, and a sophisticated system of atria that will harness natural ventilation and harvest daylight, increasing energy efficiency and light throughout the facility. It is expected to be completed by August 2015.

We are very grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Schreiber for this transformational gift and for their commitment to Loyola University Chicago.


Michael J. Garanzini, S.J.
President and CEO
