A Note From Dean Miracky
The fall semester has flown by, and our students are already starting to look ahead to next semester’s courses—and maybe even an opportunity to study abroad. As students talk about traveling home to enjoy a Thanksgiving feast with their families, I think of how Loyola students are infamous for piling their plates high with courses, extracurricular activities, service projects, and involvement in campus life. Here we introduce you to one of these students—Sarah Haley, ’13—who is making the most of her time at the University as she pursues two interdisciplinary majors, as well as an array of other activities.
You’ll also have a chance to get to know a few members of the University’s first class of Master of Theological Studies students. Even in the program’s first semester, the theology faculty members are delighted with how the students are delving into their areas of interest, connecting with one another, and engaging in academic discourse. Meanwhile, our professors are being recognized for their contributions to the arts and sciences with grants, awards, and invitations to present their research around the world. Read how one of our pastoral counseling professors traveled to Poland to discuss his research in the link between spirituality and business.
As we continue to pray for those affected by Hurricane Sandy, I extend my very best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season.
