THE MAROON A Loyola Tradition Since 1923 "For a greater Loyola" www.LoyolaMuroon.com Friday, December 2, 201 1 | | V 01.90, No. 12 H V By JAMIE FUTRAL Assistant News Editor As New Orleans honors World AIDS Day this week, Dominic Clust cannot help but reflect on how his life was turned upside down last year after he was diagnosed with HIV. Clust, theater communication junior, found out he was infected with human immunodeficiency virus after a routine screen testing at Student Health last September. A year later, Clust is optimistic about his future. "We found it early, and I am going to live a normal life," Clust said. HIV is a virus that harms the immune system. If the virus is left untreated, it can lead to acquired immune deficiency syndrome. AIDS, the final stage of the HIV virus, damages the immune system cells, T-Cells, to the point that a person's body cannot fight against any viruses. Though HIV and AIDS can be treated and prevented, there is no cure for either. Clust first turned to Student Health to get tested for any sexually transmitted diseases. Clust said that every member of the Student Health staff' was very helpful when he was first diagnosed. "We offer as much physical support and as much mental support as possible," said Alicia Bourque, administrative director for A student reflects on his eocperiences as an HIV-positive member of the Loyola community Counseling and Student Health Services. Bourque said Student Health offers discounted screen testing, referrals on insurance and services, and free counseling for students diagnosed with HIV. After his diagnosis, Student Health sent him to NO/AIDS Task Force, a nonprofit organization that provides education, counseling, financial support and assistance with prevention and spread of HIV. Clust regularly visits NO/AIDS for blood tests, medication and support.

Nor will they take Critical Reading and Writing; instead, Argumentative Writing. Although these changes may seem minor, they represent a bigger shift—the implementation of a new common curriculum in the fall of 2013. Since 2009, a task force has met regularly to form, work on and perfect this new curriculum. A science lab, a new ethics course and a difference in the required hours of religion and philosophy are several changes that the working model shows. "I have noticed that students sometimes seem unconcerned because the changes will not affect the classes they have to take," said history senior Garrett Fontenot, student member on the Common Curriculum Implementation Task Force.

The headline for "Doctor of nursing program receives accreditation," published Nov. 11 is incorrect as the Doctor of Nursing program has not yet received accreditation. In "Some students unhappy with one voice," published Nov. 18 Kylee Mclntyre was given the wrong title. She is the co-president of Loyola Life.
