THE MAROON A Loyola Tradition Since 1923 "For a greater Loyola" V 01.90 No. 13 Www LoyolciMaroon.com Friday, December 9, 201 1 | Baby Steps By PRECIOUS ESIE The Maroon KSwiAi SBXUALtTY As a pregnant student, Sarah Nguyen believed she was no different from anyone else. "I never thought they (the university) would help me," she said. "I thought I was just another student." Nguyen, who was a general studies sophomore, is not the only one who felt this way. Jessica Williams, A'll, was also pregnant last semester and had a similar view. "The only difference was that I had a big belly," Williams said. Though Nguyen and Williams shared similar feelings, university officials said there are resources available for pregnant students. Student Affairs committee focuses on struggling students The Care and Concern Committee is a Student Affairs committee comprised of representatives from Residential Life, University Police, University Counseling Center, Student Health, University Ministry and the Women's Resource Center. Members discuss ways to help students with issues that could prevent them from doing well at the university, including academic and social issues. Robert Reed, assistant vice president for Student Affairs, said the committee was created to collectively reach solutions for Despite the resources provided for pregnant students, students slow to approach Student Health Services draws mixed feelings By LUCY DIECKHAUS Staff Writer Appointment policy leaves some feeling neglected After a drive downtown and a $45 fee, Madeline Zelenka found out she had an upper and lower respiratory infection. Much to Zelenka's displeasure, this news wasn't delivered by Loyola's oncampus clinic it was delivered by a nurse practitioner at an off-campus health facility. Loyola Student Health Services referred Zelenka, management freshman, to receive treatment at Urgent Care on Magazine Street after they were unable to grant her a same-day appointment at Student Health. Zelenka is one of many students who say they feel they are not getting adequate service from Student Health and who believe that the oncampus clinic is understaffed. The university has 4,982 students enrolled, including 2,965 undergraduates. To serve that population, the university employs a nurse practitioner, a registered nurse and a medical assistant, as well as a physician who comes in once a week and a nurse practitioner who comes in three days a week. The campus clinic serves 3,000 patients a year, with over 100 students getting appointments every week, according to Alicia Bourque, administrative director for Counseling and Student Health Services. Student Health offers services such as immunizations, tuberculosis tests, well-woman exams, HIV testing and an in-house laboratory according to their website. They also provide treatment of health problems from urinary tract infections to respiratory infections. Despite anecdotal reports of unsatisfied students, Bourque points to internal surveys conducted by Student Health that show many students who get appointments leave the clinic satisfied. That survey shows, she said, that 90 percent of students reported being very to moderately satisfied with the friendliness and courtesy of the nurse and the care provider. Kayla Cox, criminal justice senior, said she, for one, was satisfied with her interactions with Student Health. "Erin (Frye, nurse practitioner) is very professional and an excellent addition to Student Health," Cox said. Still, not everyone who is looking for treatment is able to Number of Jesuits decrease By KARIN CURLEY City Editor It is a question that has been addressed by everyone from I -ovola's Board of Trustees to the Society of Jesuits to the pope. Why are the Jesuits in decline? The Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities prefaced a survey of mission and ministry at Jesuit universities by saying it was "not uncommon for some to question just how 'Jesuit' and 'Catholic' they (the universities) are and will continue to be." The number of men entering the order in the United States and Western Europe has been rapidly declining for decades. The Society of Jesuits is still the largest religious order in the Catholic Church with 19,000 members. It reached its peak in 1965 with about 36,000 members. Still, Jesuits make up less than two percent of all faculty and Occupy Nola taps Loyola for legal help By KARIN CURLEY City Editor On Tuesday morning, Loyola law professor Bill Quigley and the rest of the Occupy New Orleans legal team won a temporary restraining order in federal court for the movement, allowing the protestors to move back into Duncan Plaza. They argued the protest was protected under the First Amendment, Bill Quig ley Ldw Professor see RESOURCES, page 4 see JESUITS, page 9 see HEALTH, page 4 see OCCUPY, page 3 For a guide on how to survive finals, check out Life and Times, page 5 Where are the Loyola may join ££ Student Health is a key element of senators? ran'(S °' NCAA a fulfilled student life at Loyola, and Student Government Jf16university ■T'yTM the university must ensure that it is Association addresses hires consultants to W k Lw— _ * , j AA low attendance at evaluate the athetics properly preserved, y™ meetings department Corrections: In "Common curriculum changes get approved,* from the Dec. 2 issue of The Maroon, we misstated the number of credit hours in the current curriculum, which has 48 hours, and the approved one, which has 42 to 46 hours.
