R 1 AT 1 R IOVOI.A" VOL. 85, NO. 4 WWW.LOYOLAMAROON.COM FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2006 Weather dampens last walk By DANIEL MONTEVERDE EDITOR IN CHIEF SGA, Wildes to discuss graduation rain sites There's no place like home — unless it's raining. The Rev. Kevin Wildes, S.J., university president, and Student Government Association leaders will discuss a possible relocation of graduation ceremonies or a way to improve the on-campus rain sites. No date for the discussion had been set as of press time. While Marquette Hall has been the backdrop for several years, rain and bad weather has forced the ceremony inside at times. The current rain plan moves the graduation ceremony to the Rec Plex, but because of space limitations, some family and friends would be forced to watch the ceremony via video feeds sent to Roussel and Nunemaker halls. That's the problem, according to Daniel Green, SGA president and political science senior. Only two guests of each graduate are able to watch from the Rec Plex, while other family members watch from one of the two video feeds. Green says the quality of the feeds is also a concern. "Maybe instead of finding another site, we could find a way to improve the video feed," Green said. The problem of space in the Students swap campuses By ALEX WOODWARD THE MAROON Xavier, Tulane students utilize consortium There are some neighbors on campus this semester. Loyola is hosting students from Xavier — some because of Hurricane Katrina — and Tulane universities as part of a longstanding consortium agreement. According to the Office of Student Records, 11 visiting students from Xavier and five from Tulane are currently enrolled in classes at Loyola. The agreement allows for students to enroll in universities under the consortium's umbrella if the classes are not available at their home universities. According to Loyola's Web site, the consortium provides for a "wide variety of course work," although on a spaceavailable basis. Fallon Jackson, communications senior from Xavier University, is currently enrolled in several communications classes in order to complete her degree program."Katrina wiped out our mass communications department," Jackson said. "Hurricane Katrina devastated the first floor of the university's communications department, destroying much of the school's equipment." Although no academic programs were cut after Xavier lost much of its campus, the university found itself limited in faculty resources and teaching locations. "We only had three communications professors in January — one for print, one for public relations and one for broadcast," Jackson said. "It's getting better, but it's ALETHIA PICCIOLA / THE MAROON Xavier University student Fallon Jackson, communications senior, takes notes in her news editing class. She must complete her degree at Loyola due to Katrina-related flooding at Xavier. Potential new sorority members fall in early By COLEEN O'LEAR NEWS EDITOR Student retention, strained resources ■ bring change Sororities are trying something new with recruitment this fall, something administrators hope will bolster retention and put the university in step with the rest of the nation. For the first time in recent memory, sorority recruitment will be happening in the fall semester rather than in the spring. Beginning Wednesday, freshmen women will begin the five-day process in hopes of sporting new colors come Monday, Oct. 2. By pushing sorority recruitment to the fall and leaving fraternity rush in the spring, Greg Roskopf, assistant director of student activities and judicial affairs, said he believes Loyola will be in a better position to properly allocate resources. He also said that the shift to fall helps Loyola's Panhellenic community better align with national guidelines, which encourage all 26 National Panhellenic Council organizations to move toward fall recruitments. "It was something we were willing to try," said Roskopf. Ultimately, he said, the goal is to create a "richer experience for membership throughout the year." The idea came about in a brainstorming session in the Office of Panhellenic Counselors, Kelly Cupit, Evann Pichon, Erin Costello and Ashley Mac Donald, help potential new members sign up for sorority recruitment.
