The Common Student Lounge, Bobet Hall 338, is a comfortable, attractive space where students can come to work quietly or just to relax and unwind. It has a sofa, a round table, and beautiful framed prints that were painted by a Loyola English graduate.
Center for Editing and Publishing
(Bobet Hall 100)
Loyola's new Center for Editing and Publishing provides a space and support for students and faculty engaged in editing and publishing. By giving students insight into the protocols and practices of scholarly and commercial publishing, and access to a range of presses and periodical venues, the center provides Loyola students with a wide range of professional experiences in editing and publishing.
The center is coordinated by the English faculty, who work with presses such as Bloomsbury Publishing, Columbia University Press, Edinburgh University Press, Johns Hopkins University Press, Louisiana State University Press, McFarland, University of Minnesota Press, Penguin, Rutgers University Press, and Temple University Press, as well as numerous academic journals and popular magazines.
The center partners with faculty across the university to:
- Offer hands-on learning opportunities for students through collaborative research and internships
- Partner with students who can support faculty publications with copyediting, indexing, and other manuscript preparation services
- Promote interdisciplinary exchange across Loyola's diverse campus through relevant programming and outreach, including in-house workshops for Loyola faculty and staff on effective academic and professional writing.
