Residents of Rogers Park are sponsoring a community blood drive Saturday at the Chicago Math and Science Academy.
Those who donate blood will receive two free tickets to Laugh Factory Chicago, Chicago’s premier stand-up comedy club.
Here are details of the blood drive from 49th Ward Ald. Joe Moore:
The Chicago Math and Science Academy, in conjunction with the American Red Cross, is sponsoring a Community Blood Drive this Saturday, May 18th, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the school located at 7212 N. Clark Street (across from Touhy Park, just south of the City of Chicago firehouse).
You don’t need a special reason to give blood. You just need your own reason. Some of us give blood because we were asked by a friend (or our alderman). Some know that a family member or a friend might need blood someday. Some believe it is the right thing we do.
Whatever your reason, the need is constant and your contribution is important for a healthy and reliable blood supply. And you’ll feel good knowing you’ve helped change a life.
It’s also good for your health. When you donate blood, you receive a mini physical to check your:
• Pulse • Blood Pressure • Body temperature • Hemoglobin
What can you expect? When giving blood come prepared:
• Have a light meal and plenty to drink • Bring your donor card or driver’s license/state ID • Bring the names of the medications you’re taking
In addition to the satisfaction you’ll feel in helping others, you’ll receive two FREE tickets to Laugh Factory Chicago, Chicago’s premier stand-up comedy club.
I hope you’ll consider donating.

As Loyola University Chicago‘s spring semester comes to end, students are facing the harsh reality of having to pack up a year’s worth of memories and go back home.
“It was both nostalgic but exciting,” said Franchesca Rodgers, 18, a freshman French major who has been living in Regis Hall
During the past week, as students have been finishing up their finals, they have been slowly moving out, leaving Loyola feeling a lot emptier.
For some students the moving out process was really easy and fast.
“I would say that the moving out experience was really efficient and fast. I was even able to check out before my assigned time.” said Julianne Santo, 20, a sophomore early childhood development major who has been living in Bellarmine Hall.
“The moving out process is a lot easier earlier in the day,” said Danielle Ludkey, 20, a sophomore social work major who has been living in Spring Hill Hall. ”I moved out this morning (Sunday) and it was pretty easy and seamless.”
But other students have not been so lucky.
“It was stressful and it took forever to get an elevator,” said Sydney Richards, 18, a freshman, biology major who has been living in Mertz Hall. ”Everyone seemed to be moving out at the same time and it was very unorganized.”
No matter how students felt about their moving out process they all seemed to agree about being excited for the end of the semester and the beginning of summer.
“It was the only thing standing between me and summer, I was ready to be done with it and be done with school,” Rodgers said.

Loyola University Chicago students got one more free breakfast for finals week Tuesday evening on the school’s Lake Shore Campus in Rogers Park.
Students celebrated surviving the first two days of finals week by taking a break to enjoying a free breakfast, served by Loyola faculty and staff.
The Tuesday evening breakfast in the Gentile Center followed a Monday evening breakfast at Loyola’s Water Tower Campus in downtown Chicago.
Tuesday’s breakfast, hosted by Student Activities and Greek Affairs, had a huge turnout with even Loyola’s beloved staff member Sister Jean making an appearance.
“I loved having Sister Jean here,” said Steven Cha, 21, junior marketing and management major. “It was such a stress free environment being surrounded by friends, enjoying free food and listening to music.”
The line of hungry students extended outside of Gentile area with most students waiting more than 30 minutes to be served. Once inside finding an open table was difficult with some students resorting to sitting on the floor or taking their food to go.
“The line was to long, I was waiting for 30 minutes but it was worth the wait,” said Oscar Blas, 21, junior management major “The food was really good especially the sugar cookies.”
There was a large assortment of dining options including scrambled eggs, pancakes, muffins, bacon, sausage and hash browns.
Over all students seem to have enjoyed the breakfast and feel ready to resume finals week.
“I enjoyed it, it was a stress relief and it is nice that tomorrow is a study day so I don’t have to worry about any finals tomorrow and can just relax.” said Diana Wilkinson, 21, junior accounting major.

Loyola University Chicago’s Men’s Volleyball has advanced to the Final Four.
They team will face IC Irvine in the National Semifinals on Thursday night.
Here is more on the story sent from Loyola Rambler Athletics:
On the heels of a stirring, five-set win over Lewis in last night’s Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (MIVA) final, Loyola will face UC Irvine in a national semifinal on Thursday night. Top-ranked Brigham Young will take on Penn State in the other semi. Order of play has yet to be determined with the matches scheduled to start at 8 and 10 p.m. CT from Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles. Both semifinals will be streamed live on NCAA.com with Saturday night’s championship match airing live on ESPNU.
“UC Irvine has established itself as one of the best programs in the country and have had another great season this year,” said head coach Shane Davis. “Our team has really come together over the last two months, is playing at a high level right now and are looking forward to the challenge.”
This marks Loyola’s first-ever trip to the NCAA Championship and the Ramblers feature a balanced offensive attack led by 2013 MIVA Player of the Year Joe Smalzer. Smalzer ripped a match-high 20 kills in last night’s championship match and he enters the NCAA Championship as the nation’s leader in service aces. Outside hitters Thomas Jaeschke, the MIVA Freshman of the Year, and California native Cody Caldwell provide ample support and each racked up double-doubles against Lewis.
In addition to Caldwell, who grew up in Newport Beach, Loyola features four other Southern California products in Peter Jasaitis (Manhattan Beach), Jeff Patton (Auburn), Torey Darin (Huntington Beach) and Ryan Baine (Landera Ranch).
The teams have met five times previously with Loyola holding a 3-2 edge in the series. However, the Anteaters have won the two most recent meetings, including a 3-0 win in Irvine during the 2009 season.

Student musicians at Loyola University Chicago filled the expanse of Madonna Della Strada with beautiful music on Monday night when the University Chorus, orchestra, and Women’s Chorus all performed in the annual Spring Concert.
The concert took place in the university’s on-campus chapel and featured several soloists and a guest tin flute player.
“I’m in Liturgical Cantorial, too, and we had our concert last night with the organ,” said Megan Vanduyne, 20, a junior biology and psychology major. “But I really like how this is played with the orchestra.”
Because Loyola’s concerts are open to the public, residents of Rogers Park and the surrounding neighborhoods are often in attendance at musical performances.
To members of the choir, a bigger audience is exciting.
“I think it’s cool that the community comes out, too, and it’s not just parents here to see us,” said Anne Pluchar, 19, a freshman forensic science major.
The orchestra began the show, under the direction of Dr. Colin Holman, and was followed by the University Chorale and the Women’s Chorus, both directed by Dr. Kirsten Hedegaard.
Performances of classical symphonies by the orchestra and traditional folk songs from around the world by the choirs were followed by a closing hymn performed by all three groups.
During the concert, Hedegaard took a moment to recognize the orchestra’s and choirs’ graduating members and thanked them for their time and dedication to the music department during the course of their time at Loyola.
“We have some graduating seniors with us tonight, and I would like to take a moment to recognize them,” she said in front of the crowd. ”We are so grateful to you for sharing your talents with us over the past four years.”
After a performance that earned a standing ovation from some in attendance, members of the choir simply enjoyed their time performing.
“I really like these concerts,” said Vanduyne. “I think they’re a lot of fun.”
