THE MAROON A LOYOLA I RADII lON SINCL 1923 • LOR A(. R I ATI. KI.O Y O 1./■ VOL. G5, NO. 3 WWW.LOYOLAMAROON.COM FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2006 'Pathways' refined, approved By ALETHIA PICCIOLA THE MAROON University officials emphasize changing nature of plans goals. The "Pathways" plan was approved on May 19, but will continue to undergo changes upon yearly examination, university officials said. The Office of Academic Affairs made numerous changes to the original plan and divided it into two categories: the restructuring of the university and the establishment of strategic goals. Loyola students and faculty submitted responses to the proposal between April 10, when the plan was originally proposed, and May 19, when it was approved. Responses were valuable in determining a final plan and that's apparent in the current "Pathways" plan, said University President the Rev. Kevin Wildes, S.J. According to Provost Walter Harris, Ph.D., the Office of the Provost and Academic Affairs plan to continually assess the strategies and goals set forth by the "Pathways" plan by meeting with the Standing Council for Academic Planning, the University Planning Team and the Council of Deans once a year to discuss university progress and their directional focus. The "Pathways" plan is intended to be an "ongoing process of assessment and reevaluation," of university's needs, said Wildes. Harris added that the restructuring portion of "Pathways" will not change. Suspended departments, however, will have the opportunity to remain as part of the university if they are able to display acceptable progress as 'Pack prowls for fans By MICHAEL NISSMAN THE MAROON Loyola looks to raise attendance, enthusiasm. Bret Simpson hopes to put the 'Pack back in Wolfpack. The Associate Athletic Director has created a new marketing initiative dubbed "Wolfpack Nation." Its mission: to pack Loyola athletic events. The campaign, which gives away free Loyola T-shirts and a bench-side view of games, began with the launch of fall sports this year. The goal of the campaign is to garner larger interest in intercollegiate sports. The athletic department is taking an aggressive initiative unparallel to other marketing projects in the past, said Simpson. "Wolfpack Nation" is Simpson's brainchild. Simpson, who is also the assistant baseball coach, thought of the idea after hearing about a similar campaign at Miami University in Ohio. '"Wolfpack Nation' was something I thought of right after the hurricane," Simpson said. "You hear people talking about 'Red Sox Nation' because a lot of Red Sox fans don't live in Boston; they're spread out across the country. "After the hurricane it was a similar situation with students, faculty and administration of the university."Included in the plan is the distribution of dog tags with "Wolfpack Nation" inscribed on one side. On VICTORIA LODI / THE MAROON The 'Wolfpack Nation' campaign kicks off this semester in an attempt to increase student attendance at Loyola sporting events, both home and away. LOYOLA REMEMBERS STEVE KASHISHIAN / THE MAROON Three ROTC students participate in a flag ceremony Monday in the Residential Quad to commemorate the five-year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Camellia Grill sold, set to reopen By NICOLE WROTEN THE MAROON The Riverbend neighborhood will be getting back one of its most wellknown establishments. The Camellia Grill will reopen under new ownership after being closed since Hurricane Katrina. Hicham Khodr, long-time local restaurateur, purchased the diner following a seven-month negotiation with former owner, Michael Schwartz, according to an Aug. 31 article in The Times-Picayune. Khodr is a partner in other Uptown restaurants, including the newly-opened Table One and Byblos Mediterranean Restaurant as well as NOLA, Emeril Lagasse's classic Creole restaurant in the French Quarter. There has been no comment on whether Lagasse had anything to do with the purchase. The two men have shared close business ties in New Orleans for years, according to The Times-Picayune, and own Gaily House together, a 1800s property in the French Quarter. In the months following Hurricane Katrina, the Grill's facade has become a shrine of Post-it "love" notes from locals and tourists who miss the food and atmosphere of the Carrollton Avenue diner. A note signed "Greg at Loyola" reads, "Hurry!" "Please come back. We need food. It's 2 a.m„" says one of the unsigned notes. Another anonymous note reads, "I need one of your hamburgers.
