The Loyola Lady

As Women’s History Month draws to a close, we reflect on the history of women at Loyola University with the 1962 issue of The Loyola Lady, a handbook for women students distributed by the university.

Loyola Lady Cover

You are 35% strong, co-eds. You compose 35% of the enrollment of Loyola University according to the 1961-62 enrollment figures. Today that figure has increased because more and more young ladies are coming to Loyola each year. When Loyola became a university, the Class of 1911 boasted a 32 student membership with one coed, Miss Lurline Wilson of Independence. The '61-'62 enrollment figures showed approximately 3,200 students from 33 states with 25 countries plus U.S. possessions. Today's registration will hoist that figure. A need for a handbook entirely on the feminine side was pointed out by the Dean of Women. This project was begun last year with a booklet entitled "The Wolfette," edited by Mary Ann Vial, Cathy Lund and Kathy Eberle. This year the booklet, "The Loyola Lady," is published with the sincere hope that it will help you to get to know Loyola and to become a part of this great institution of learning by contributing your very best to the excellent spirit of friendliness, cooperation and leadership that exists in the classrooms and on the campus of Loyola University.

Welcome, Loyola Lady. Welcome to the Loyola campus and sincere best wishes that the coming year will be marked with success in your academic, social, and personal life on the university level. To help you to know what is expected of and what is offered to the Loyola lady, we have prepared this handbook for you. Take a few moments of your time to read it carefully in order that you may become better acquainted with your Alma Mater. Rosalie Parrino, Dean of Women. "Takehold on instruction, leave it not, keep it, because it is thy life." Proverbs, Chapter 4, 13. Published by Loyola University, 1600 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans, Louisiana. Editor: Charmaine Currault.

While Loyola Lady is unsurprisingly outdated, it also highlights many of the activities and service activities women students engaged in in the 60s and encourages female students to participate in intramural sports.

For those of you who are would-be marksmen, there's an excellent rifle team which has competed in a number of state-wide tournaments. In the spring, the department is planning to have a swimming team. Needless to say, you do not have to be a great star to participate in these activities. Remember it's the spirit that counts. The Powder Puff Bowl, an annual even, will include a male "Sweetheart Court." Believe me, in this girls' football game, they come up with a few tricks the boys have never seen.

College Togs. Dress properly for every occasion. Clothing should play an important part in the college coeds plans for college. That is why it is necessary for you to realize how important it is to be properly dressed for every occasion. A first impression be a "good impress" if you dress properly. Things to bring to Loyola. 1. Sweaters and skirts (Bulk style popular).  2. Summer cottons (New Orleans weather is warm until November). 3. Loafers, flats and iby league saddles are worn to class 4. Raincoat or trench coat ( We do have our rainy season) 5. Heavy coat for dress purposes, short coat for sports wear or casual dress. 6. Cocktail dresses are used for evening receptions, semi-formals , operas or fraternity rush party dates. 7. Long formals are rarely worn. Semiformals are the vogue. 8. Drip-dry blouses. 9. Accessories: jewelry (small pearl earrings and necklaces are popular--too many rhinestones are not in good taste. Scarfs, gloves, purse (a small book size purse.) 10. Small handkerchief size veils or chapel caps are popular for week day Mass. A basic black, navy, or brown dress is always in good taste . 12. Opera pumps are always fashionable. 13. Bermuda shorts, slim jims, and a bathing suit.

Little Reminders That Help. The Loyola Lady is courteous at all times. Here are a few rules on introductions and such: 1. Young peopl are presented to older people, a man is presented to a woman, and a less important person is pre-sented to a more important one.  2. A student should introduce herself to faculty members or to guests of the University at any social function . 3. All invitations must be answered promptly. In replying always use plain stationery and black or blue-black ink. In a formal reply, use the third person, making no abbreviations, and writing out all numbers. This should be in the same form as the invitation. Remember that no reply is necessary when the name of a person to whom to send the reply is not given. 4. It is the hostess' privilege and duty to greet the chaperones, introduce them to one another, the students, and served to the chaperones before others are served.

Our University Archives contain images of female Wolfpack students engaging in a number of the activities detailed in The Loyola Lady including rifle practice, the Powder Puff game, attending mass, and hosting social functions.
