THE MAROON Vol. 88, NO. 7 ONLINE EDITION AT LOYOLAMAROON.COM FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2010 Student arrested on rape charge Student released from jail on bail By PRECIOUS ESIE Senior Staff Writer The New Orleans Police Department arrested and booked a Loyola student on charges of simple rape earlier this month. Police arrested Dylan Rosevear, music performance senior, on Oct. 15 after police say he raped a woman following a Tulane fraternity party. According to the police report, Rosevear and the victim attended a cocktail party at the Sigma Chi Fraternity house. The victim became intoxicated at the party and one of her friends asked Rosevear to bring her home, due to her intoxication, the report said. The victim woke up nude with Rosevear, also nude, lying next to her in her bed, kissing her on the neck the following morning. Police said the victim asked Rosevear what happened, which he told her they engaged in sexual intercourse the previous night and showed her a condom on the floor. The victim said she told Rosevear she did not remember anything, and he left, the report said. After that, the victim contacted her friend and asked how drunk she was when Rosevear brought her home. "Smashed," the report said the Dylan Rosevear Music Performance senior Changes in common curriculum pending By VANNIA ZELAYA Contributing Writer Courses such as calculus, argumentative writing and natural science lab may become required courses for incoming freshmen if administrators approve a set of proposed changes to Loyola's common curriculum. The set of courses that every student at Loyola is required to take is undergoing revision to include courses that administrators hope will better represent the university's Jesuit value of educating the whole person. Representatives from each of the university's five colleges are working to revise the curriculum. They will propose their courses to the Standing Council for Academic Planning by the end of October. The council already has a budget destined to test these courses. "Once I get an approved curriculum, we've already got some budget," said Edward Kvet, provost and vice president for academic affairs. The new curriculum will entail new costs, but according to Kvet, the university's priority is the development of the "best curriculum," one that includes a varied set of courses that will encourage students to become well-rounded people.

The event closed University offers sexual assault suport resources By PRECIOUS ESIE Senior Staff Writer Take Back the Night is not the only support for sexual assault victims that the university offers. According to the Code of Conduct, located in the student handbook, Louisiana law defines rape as any anal, oral or vaginal intercourse committed without lawful consent due to force, alcohol, narcotics, or unsoundness of mind. "It's a violation of human rights," said Alicia Bourque, director of University Counseling Center. "The law says if you're under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you cannot give consent," said Patrick Bailey, Loyola Commencement location change By CRAIG MALVEAUX New Editor Once again, renovations are affecting Loyola's students, but this time, the construction is nowhere near the university's campus. The drawback: the class of 2010 will drive further to graduate on a smaller stage. According to Cissy Petty, vice president for Student Affairs and associate provost, commencement ceremony will take place inside the Earnest N. Morial Convention Center this year, due to renovations to the Superdome. Construction is scheduled to resume in January, following the New Orleans Saints season, and continue throughout May, forcing both Loyola and Tulane to make appropriate arrangements. New Orleans NBC affiliate, WDSU, reported June 27, that the Superdome's facilities will receive a series of upgrades and additions totaling approximately $85 million. Some of those improvements include installing more seats to increase maximum capacity and more vendor locations throughout the stadium. Loyola explored other possible venues to host the ceremony. However, there were few places in New Orleans that able comfortably accommodate the graduating class, their families and friends. Petty said the New Orleans Arena, which held commencement for the graduating class of 2007, could not be booked by Loyola or Tulane University for unspecified reasons. "I know it's really disappointing but we'll due everything possible to make it special," Petty said. Petty also said Loyola is working to find a very special commencement speaker for the class of 2011, however, one has not yet been chosen.
