To the Class of 2014

In a few weeks the Class of 2014 will be graduating. They will take their lasts examinations, spend their last sleepless nights in Monroe Library, and pack their bags for the last time. Each chose to spend the past 4 years at Loyola for their own personal reasons and I assume they are all pleased with this choice. More importantly, they came to New Orleans to spend these 4 years. A unique city unlike any other. Some seniors will remissness on countless walks in Audubon Park, Mardi Gras, crawfish and more. For others, their memories of Loyola and New Orleans may be much simpler. At this time, you may also be scared of the unknown life that is soon to unfold after college.  Class of 2014, I encourage you to read this article from the 1990 Maroon. In this article a senior discusses his experience at Loyola University New Orleans. He reflects on the ups and downs and the simple things about the city that he loves so much. Additionally, he discusses his fear of the future. Seek comfort in this article and know that all of the feelings you are having right now are perfectly natural. Good Luck and Congratulations!
