The Maroon A Loyola Tradition Since 1923 "For a greater Loyola" www.LoyolaMaroon.com Friday, September 23, 201 1 | V 01.90, NoT University postpones Danna demolition By KRISTEN HIMMELBERG Staff Writer Witli Octohcr right around the corner, students and faculty alike are all wondering the same question: why is the Danna Center still here? Last October, the university announced construction plans for the Danna Center, in which it was to be torn down and rebuilt on a larger scale. According to these plans, construction should have already been underway this summer, but after consideration, the plan has been put on the back burner and will not happen for another four to five years, according to Robert Reed, assistant vice president of Student Affairs. The plan has been delayed in terms of a new student center and residential hall," Reed said. In the meantime, Loyola is taking steps to improve the Danna Center and the rest of campus life with changes and renovations to several of Dining Services' facilities and the residence halls, Reed said. "We have begun to evaluate what we can do, in short of replacing it, to make it a new and vibrant place," Reed said. The university has started talking to different vendors to see what the building could possibly look like and what they can do to keep the current Danna Center upto-date.The main goal is to ensure that the Danna Center is meeting the needs of all Loyola students as the years progress, until they can make a more substantial change like rebuilding it. Reed said. The first round of changes were made to Loyola's Dining Services this summer. The Orleans Room was expanded by moving the wall in front out further towards Community Coffee, which added 40 square feet to the room and increased the seating capacity by 130 seats, said Heather Bacque, Sodexo general manager. The expansion included adding bar seating around the windows and adding more tables and chairs, as well as refurbishing the entire room. GETTING PAPER By KELSI ALLENBACH Staff Writer If you're wondering why you don't have work-study, it may be one of two reasons: your expected family contribution has increased, making you ineligible, or you did not meet the priority deadline. If students meet the need-based requirements and apply on time, keeping with the priority application deadline of May 1, they should not be denied, said Cathy Simoneaux, director of Scholarships and Financial Aid. Confusion has arisen this year because the work-study program has less funding and less jobs available, so the deadline has become increasingly important, whereas in previous years, Some students who once had work-study jobs find that they are ineligible because of an increase in applications and a decrease in federalfunding meeting the deadline was not as necessary. "We are having the complaints from students who applied in July and August," she said. "We know when we award workstudy that a certain number of students, especially the incoming freshmen, are not going to be really interested in working, CHIKA JOHN/PHOTO EDITOR Gary Elzey, psychology junior, retrieves papers from a printer for students Wednesday, Sept. 21. The Monroe Library offers work-study jobs, like Elzey's, through government funding. Dedication of Thomas Hall marks end of renovation By GEENAH ACEVEDO Contributing Writer Before Loyola can accept the newly renovated Thomas Hall into its community, it needs to complete one last step — a dedication. The university will host an open house in Thomas Hall on Sept. 27. A dedication and blessing ceremony will take place from 12:30 - 2 p.m. A reception for the general public will follow at 5 p.m. Thomas Halls dedication will honor its • renovation, which was completed in early August. Reopened after a three-year closure, the building has also been repurposed as a "one-stop shop" for administrative offices. Offices that were scattered throughout Marquette Hall are now in a building specifically designed for office space. The dedication ceremony will mark the last step of the buildings transition. According to Meredith Hartley, director of Public Affairs, the event's speakers will include University President the Rev. Kevin Wildes, S.J., Whitney Bank President Joseph S. Exnicios, and a presentation by Vice President of Enrollment Management Salvadore Liberto. Built in 1911, Thomas Hall was named after Louise C. Thomas, who liinded its construction in memory of her late husband Stanley O. Thomas. Since Loyola received its charter in 1.912, the building served as a residence and chapel for Jesuits of the New Orleans Province until 2005. In that year the building was transformed into a temporary residence hall for students returning after Hurricane Katrina. Thomas Hall continued to serve as a residence until 2007. see WORK, page 12 see CENTER, page 7 see THOMAS, page 7 tier the brutal world Loyola Rugby See Page 8 takes CORRECTIONS: In "Volleyball team picks up pace," run on Sept. 16 we said the Wolfpack volleyball team lost to University of Wisconsin Platteville when they did not.
