Why Luff is the Move

By Isabel Goldstein
December 9, 2013 - 9:10am

So as we all wait for our finals to start, we look for ways to distract ourselves from the painful hours of studying that lie ahead. The easiest way to do so is by eating, but unfortunatel, eating at Bruff just doesn’t always cut it. During this stressful week, 3 big meals a day with snacks in between is key. For those of you that can’t do another dinner at Bruff, walk an extra 5 minutes and go to “Luff." "Luff” is the better, Loyola version of Bruff. Here are the 5 reasons why Luff is the go-to place: READ MORE

Finals week is finally here, whether we like it or not. We have all been through a couple of stressful weeks since Thanksgiving break ended, but we’re going to need to take breaks periodically or else we’re going to go insane.

Dogs are truly the way to a woman’s heart (sorry boys, if you thought flowers and chocolate were going to cover it), and they never fail to brighten a day. Thanks to a BuzzFeed post, I have been looking at dog videos nonstop! READ MORE

As finals start approaching, the anxiety of where to study and how to best execute that time sets in.

Here are the 5 Phases of Studying in Howie T, when those cubicle walls start to feel like they're drawing in and the clausterphobia and struggle get terribly, terribly real. 1.

It's almost time for one of the most rare, filling, and awesome holidays—Thanksgivingukkah.

Restaurants to Be Thankful For in New Orleans

By Isabel Goldstein
November 25, 2013 - 9:13am

As Thanksgiving rolls around, we all start to think about what we’re thankful for; family, friends, and our health. As most of us go home for a great home cooked meal, we are more than thankful to have any meal that’s not Bruff. But, one thing to keep in mind over Thanksgiving is that in New Orleans we are surrounded by good food. Yes, it’s unrealistic to go get a good bite to eat with friends a few times a week, but sometimes we just need to splurge. Especially when we need a reminder that we are in the great city of New Orleans, the food capital of the country. READ MORE

So Chivalry Is Dying, But Is Dating Also?

By Zoe Kantor
November 25, 2013 - 1:00am

Last time, I spoke about how upperclassmen boys date freshman girls because they can get away with about as much effort as it takes to order Jimmy Johns. And, if it roots to boys being lazy or girls being easy. This week, I’m going to talk about why our generation “dates” the way we do, and if boys are really the root cause.    READ MORE

The impending doom of finals and final papers may be creeping up around campus, dignifying a much needed inspiration break.
