Loyola University Chicago’s Retreat and Ecology Campus will offer summer cooking classes lead by Scott Commings–Loyola’s executive chef and Hell’s Kitchen contestant–starting Saturday, May 10 in the new demonstration kitchen.

Loyola University Chicago’s Retreat and Ecology Campus Introduces
Summer Cooking Classes in New Demo Kitchen
Woodstock, IL Campus Brings Sustainable Cooking to the Local Community
 Loyola University Chicago’s Retreat and Ecology Campus will offer a series of summer cooking classes starting Saturday, May 10. These will be the first classes in the new demonstration kitchen, which features state-of-the-art equipment and a design that fosters a hands-on approach to culinary learning.
 
Lead by Loyola’s executive chef and Hell’s Kitchen contestant, Scott Commings, classes will feature a number of culinary themes, including farm-to-table sustainable cooking, Italian delicacies, and artisan bread-making. A number of classes will also focus on yielding valuable kitchen skills, including knife techniques, butchery, and food preservation.
 
“Our goal is to provide an educational, energetic, and fun atmosphere to learn the basic fundamentals in the art of cooking while also connecting people through food,” said Commings. “Sustainability is also a key part of our classes–we cook the seasonal products that come directly from our campus farm.”
 
During each class, Commings will discuss the ins and outs of each recipe while giving valuable tips and instruction along the way. Class attendees will work in a group setting to prepare each meal, and will have the opportunity to sit together at the end of the class to enjoy what they have prepared. 
 
The new demonstration kitchen will be complete by the end of April with the goal of bringing the experience of a professional kitchen to students, community members, and others, including those not familiar with food preparation. The kitchen, in conjunction with the Retreat and Ecology Campus Farm, will allow students and guests to learn techniques that will lead to better, smarter, and healthier ways of living. 
 
The classes are open to the public and will run from May 10 through September 6. For pricing and to register, visit LUC.edu/retreatcampus.

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.
Sincerely,
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.
