A Few of Your Favorite Things

December 15, 2011

With a sleigh full of stories about alumni, faculty, and students, I could start naming my favorite features from the year. In this season of giving, however, we are thinking about what others enjoy most.
You are, after all, our readers, and the reason we publish Loyola magazine.

So, this week—rather than make our own list of top picks—we decided to turn to Google Analytics to see which 10 stories were the best-read—at least by our online readers—in 2011.

Let us know. Do any of these look familiar?

10. Former Orioles and Mets GM Led Champions: Inspired by his father’s work ethic and thirst for opportunity, Frank Cashen, ’45, guided the Baltimore Orioles and New York Mets to five World Series appearances

9. A Career in Fashion: Internship leads to job offer for Loyola junior

8. Why Liberal Arts? An essay by Fr. James Miracky, S.J., dean of Loyola College, the University’s school of arts and sciences

7. At the Old Ball Game: Loyola’s liberal arts education prepares graduates for many areas, including the varied careers in America’s storied pastime

6. Encountering God’s Grace through Suffering: Memoir reveals how suffering can strengthen faith

5. Gift Honors Classmates’ Memories: Class of 2011 raises record gift in memory of two classmates

4. 10 Years after Sept. 11 Students Are Inspired to Join ROTC

3. Good Neighbors: York Road Initiative Takes Root

2. “I’m Not Going to Die This Way”: Family and Friends Honor Sean Lugano, ’95
