WELCOME Editor’s note


In 2011, I accepted a job that brought me from New Jersey, the state I’d called home since childhood, to Chicago, a city I’d visited only once. In the three short weeks I had to pack up my old life and prepare for a new one, I was faced with a lot of tough questions: Should I keep my car, or sell it in favor of public transit? Which of my clothes were worth packing, and which ones should I donate? Were all of the mementos I’d saved through the years really worth cramming into a moving truck? Oſt en it takes some external force,


Service is second nature at Loyola. Last spring, these students spent a week volunteering in Kansas City, Missouri, as part of Loyola’s Alternative Break Immersion program.

And what changes could we make to better refl ect the ways we’re living our mission? Our team spent several months

wrestling with these questions (and many of you helped this fall by taking our reader survey). We decided to simplify the magazine’s sections, focus more intentionally on our mission, update the design, and even change the paper. The result is the magazine you now hold in your hands, one that looks and feels much diff erent—and hopefully, more relevant. Breaking out of a routine can be


uncomfortable, but in the long term, we oſt en fi nd it is for the best. I’ve never regretted my move to Chicago, or decisions like trading my car for crowded CTA trains. We hope that you’ll feel the same way about the new Loyola magazine and encourage you to share your feedback. —Scott Alessi
