(PRWEB) April 10, 2012
One hundred years and countless achievements have come and gone since Loyola University was chartered in New Orleans in 1912. Since that time, the Jesuit-Catholic university has grown to house five colleges and two professional schools, educating 5,000 students a year with the guidance and support of more than 1,100 faculty and staff. For a century, Loyola has not only contributed to the economic health of the greater New Orleans area, almost $ 164 million last year alone, but it has also produced men and women who serve as catalysts of change in their communities by exemplifying the ethical and values-laden education they received at their alma mater.
Loyolas 17th and current president, the Rev. Kevin Wm. Wildes, S.J., Ph.D., believes that creates quite a ripple effect outside Loyolas campus. Loyola Universitys first 100 years were paved with great ambition and outstanding achievements. Today, Loyola is stronger than ever and poised to usher in its next century of impacting the world beyond its classrooms, Wildes said.
Throughout 2012 and 2013, Loyola University New Orleans will celebrate the 100th anniversary of its chartering as a university. The centennial will be observed from April 2012 to May 2013, featuring a number of signature and academic events that celebrate and explore Loyolas rich history. Festivities will begin today, April 10, 2012, with a host of public activities and lectures on campus following throughout the week, finally leading to a major kick-off event on April 14, 2012, the Founders Day Celebration.
In addition, the university recently launched a centennial website to give a nod to its past 100 years, http://www.loyno.edu/2012, which contains personal stories and photos showing the enormous impact a Jesuit education has on its students. The website also features milestones, official events, historical photos, video interviews and Loyolas plan for the future, illustrating how the university was and still is a place of innovation, academic achievement and lasting friendships.
To permanently document Loyolas unique history, the university commissioned the publication of Founded on Faith: A History of Loyola University New Orleans, written by professor of history Bernard Cook, Ph.D. The book, on sale at http://www.loyno.bkstr.com, provides a definitive history of the Jesuits in Louisiana and explores Loyolas impact to the city of New Orleans through a colorful cast of students, alumni, Jesuits, faculty and other characters.
The week leading up to the centennial kick-off offers a host of activities that celebrate Loyolas history and accomplishments, many of which are free and open to the public. See below for a listing of public events. For more information or a complete listing of events, please visit http://www.loyno.edu/2012.

Question by David B: photoshop?
i'm a noob at photoshop...i wanna practice but i got no idea?
any suggestions or sites you know what are good?
Answer by carnaby_fudge
it's a hefty investment ($ 50) but photoshop classroom in a book is a great resource. it has lots of color pictures and great practice lessons. i use it in my classroom for my photo students all the time. instead of going through a mish mash of online sites that are very disconnected PS classroom in a book gives you a very regimented experience and eash lesson builds upon the last one.
