Loyola Phoenix serves Loyola University Chicago and the northside Chicago neighborhoods of Edgewater and Rogers Park.
The Loyola Phoenix is the official newspaper of Loyola University Chicago in Chicago, Illinois. Published year-round on a weekly basis, it not only serves the students and faculty of the various colleges of the university in the United States and Italy, but it also serves the northside Chicago neighborhoods of Edgewater and Rogers Park and has a readership that extends through the twenty-eight member institutions of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities. Since its inception, the newspaper has received a reputation in the city for being a politically liberal leaning publication. Past staff advisors have been affiliated with the Chicago Tribune.
(Phoenix allows only two absences from classroom sessions before students are forced to withdraw, and most faculty members say they're strict about attendance.) Students plunk down a folded notecard in front of them with their name on it, pull out a bag of chips or a sandwich and settle in for a marathon night.
Phoenix takes care of the prep work by providing them with a centralized curriculum that is developed by a small cadre of full-time faculty as well as some part-time instructors.
Phoenix declines to release enrollment statistics for individual campuses or states, but nationwide, 18 percent of its students are African American and 11 percent are Hispanic.
