the Maroon A Loyola Tradition Since 1923 "For a greater Loyola" V 01.90, No. 10 www.LoyolaMaroon.com Friday, November 1 1, 201 1j seriesan SEXUALITY By CARL HARRISON The Maroon Students, faculty and administrators remain divided on the distribution of contraceptives on Loyola's campus. Catholic doctrine denounces premarital sex, but Catholic universities, including Loyola, are dealing with the issue that some of their students are still having sex. Some on campus say that the health risks associated with sexual activity override the university's need to adhere to church principles. "I don't know of any Catholic university where contraceptives would be offered," said Robert Reed, assistant vice president of Student Affairs. As a Jesuit university, Loyola does not offer contraceptives on campus. "We recognize that sexuality is a very human act," said the Rev. Ted Dziak, SJ., vice president of University Mission and Ministry. "Understand that we PHOTO ILLUSTRATION BY SAM WINSTROM AND SHANNON DONALDSON/THE MAROON Forum plans to address condom use on campus By FLOR SERNA Contributing Writer When Richard Tucker went to the Student Health Center to ask for condoms, he was told that it is Loyola's policy to not provide them. They would also not comment on the advisability of seeking condoms," said Tucker, a political science junior and president of the Loyola Society for Civic Engagement. Tucker said anyone who has been to the Student Health Center for condoms has probably received the same answer, so LSCE is holding a forum on the matter. The forum, called Access to Contraception On Campus: The Safety and Morality of Condoms, will feature a panel of guest speakers including Kurt Bindewald, director of University Ministry; Karen Reichard, Women's Resource Center director; Lynette Collins, a nurse practitioner from Daughters of Charity Health Center, a Catholic health provider in New Orleans; and a Planned Parenthood representative. The upcoming forum plans to attract a large student audience and initiate discussion about access to condoms on campus, Tucker said. The university's policy of not providing contraceptives to students is at the center of it. "We are a Catholic institution, and we must adhere at an administrative level and a moral level to the tenets put forth by the hierarchy within the church," Tucker said, "But we are also a liberal arts university.

Over 400 meetings have been held to finalize plans for Monroe Hall. Although those plans are not yet complete, preparation for construction has already begun. This work includes putting up fences around the Academic Quad and along Miller Hall, up to the future Tom Benson Jesuit Center. Students will paint these fences in the spring semester. The Loyola Street entrance is also now closed to make space for a crane. These areas have been closed for the estimated 55 drive pilings to be conducted throughout winter break. "We are trying to make it look as presentable as possible since it will be there for three plus years," said Bret Jacobs, vice provost for Information Technology and a consultant for the Facilities Planning Group, the committee that oversees university construction.
