Ahead of Donald Trump’s trial on his actions following the 2020 election, Generation Z have indicated that they are more likely to believe that the allegations against Trump are grave, according to new polling from the New York Times.

When asked if Trump did anything wrong in handling classified documents, 72% of the 18-29 year-old age group responded that “Trump has committed serious federal crimes” — 19% higher than the next highest age group.

New data from the New York Times indicate that young people are more likely to believe the allegations against former President Donald Trump are...

E2024: The ongoing fight over statehood for the District of Columbia dates back to 1960, when D.C. residents were granted the right to vote in presidential elections by the 23rd Amendment. Since then, the district has created its own system of local government and overwhelmingly approved a referendum in favor of D.C. statehood.

However, statehood has yet to clear one of its biggest hurdles: the filibuster in the Senate, which President of District of Columbia Young Democrats Jamal Holtz called “a tool to block progress for our democracy.”

Despite many challenges, statehood activists still see hope that the District of Columbia will become the 51st state in the union.

The fight to achieve statehood for the District of Columbia has stalled in the 118th Congress, but statehood activists say it’s needed now more...

LMU women’s soccer alumna Sarina Bolden (‘18) shocked soccer fans all over the world when she scored the Philippines national team’s first ever World Cup goal on Tuesday. Yet, one person was completely unsurprised by Bolden’s achievement: her former LMU coach, Michelle Myers. In an exclusive interview with the Loyolan, Myers sheds light on the history-maker's journey.

“[Sarina] always looked like she was enjoying the game … When you watch her goal celebration, she was just always that type of kid with a lot of passion for the game, a lot of energy,” Myers said.

A true example of who an LMU alum should be, Bolden will continue their World Cup journey with the Philippines national team on Sunday, July 30, in a match against Norway.

A header from Sarina Bolden (’18) lifted the Philippines to its first-ever World Cup win. The Loyolan spoke to Bolden’s former coach, who was completely unsurprised that her protégé met

To all the disappointed high school seniors obsessing over college rejections, it will be OK. I promise. I wasn’t the first person to attend their safety school, but I’m here to tell you it turned out pretty well. During my tumultuous college admissions process, my high school self was not excited to attend LMU. However, as I prepare to graduate, I laugh at my initial disinterest, but that is what has made my memories here all the more meaningful.

The estimated cost of full-time, on-campus undergraduate attendance at LMU is set to increase by 9.3% next year, raising the overall projected cost to $84,132.

Both increases mark a record high over the past 10 academic years. Taken together, LMU tuition has increased by 41% over the past decade.

The 2023-24 cost of attendance rose by 9.3% for students living on campus next year, marking a record high increase at LMU over the past 10 years.

Graduating senior Connor Rose spent the majority of his time on campus trying to figure out who he was and where he fit in, putting his time and energy into a variety of jobs, clubs, organizations and extracurriculars that spanned LMU and beyond. He realized that spreading himself too thin did not allow him to achieve as much as he had hoped.

“I spent so much time regretting the things that I wasn’t able to do because of the hole of obligations I dug for myself with no way of climbing out,” wrote Rose. “I spent so much time and money going to places for that feeling of inclusion … I was being pulled in every direction.”

However, he was ultimately able to find the balance that’s necessary for students who are trying to figure out where they belong without overwhelming their schedule and life.

“While it’s important to be involved and ‘do everything,’ it’s just as important to take time away from that work and responsibility, focus on yourself and not ‘do everything’ — even if it’s just for a moment,” wrote Rose.

BREAKING: Tuition is set to increase by 5.4% next year, according to LMU's Student Accounts Department. The rise brings the cost of full-time annual undergraduate tuition up to $57,602 in 2023-24, up from $54,630 in the current academic year.

Several fees will also increase for next year. Taken in total, the student activity, student recreation facility and media fees increased by $36, an increase of 10.1%.

The increases roughly track the consumer price index in 2022, which saw consumers paying 6.5% more for all items from December 2021 to December 2022, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The Loyolan will continue to follow this story as it develops.

The 2023-24 academic year will see full-time undergraduate Lions paying 5.4% more than in 2022-23.

Ladies & Gentlemen:

Re: Let's Hear Your Story (LHYS)

My name is Tony Lombardo. I have been afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for over forty-one years and wheelchair bound for twenty-one years. To say the least, it certainly has not been an easy road.

Along the way, I have met numerous individuals who taught me the true meaning of the word COURAGE. As a means of "paying it forward," I established Let's Hear Your Story (LHYS). Our mantra is “How We Conquer Life's Obstacles.” We collect and post personal survival stories on the LHYS site as the written word, videos, or by other available mediums. Anonymous stories are welcome.

Please visit our Facebook prototype site at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/439109260104105

LHYS exhibits “social value” by focusing upon how we learn survival skills from each other.

I am developing LHYS into an online showcase which focuses upon the “Inner Strength" contained within the Human Spirit. We will post a vast selection of exceptional work created by exceptional individuals.

We welcome artists who are interested in exhibiting their work on the LHYS site.

Please feel free to contact me at T: 609-660-1529 or E-mail: [email protected]. Your input is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Tony Lombardo
