LSBA 1L Character and Fitness Program, *Mandatory for 1Ls

Time: 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm

Contact: Sarah Johnson/Suzanne Scalise · · 504-861-5981

Location: College of Law, Broadway Campus, Room 405

As listed on the 1L Master Calendar the 1L portfolios, ALL 1L students (civil and common) are REQUIRED to attend this Bar Exam presentation. Please note that the date of the this presentation has changed.  In the event that you cannot attend due to an emergency, please email Professor Suzanne Scalise directly,  

All 1L students (civil and common) are required to attend a character and fitness bar exam presentation provided by the Louisiana State Bar Association (“LSBA”) on Thursday, March 30, 2017, at 12:30pm in room 405.  This presentation will be recorded for evening students and made available by email.  If you are not registered as an evening student, you MUST attend the live presentation.  

In order to sit for ANY BAR EXAM, you MUST pass a state-specific character and fitness investigation.  In most states, including Louisiana, that investigation consists of a very long and thorough application provided by the National Conference of Bar Examiners (“NCBE”).  The NCBE application is long and complicated and students always have questions about it that I cannot answer.  The LSBA's presentation will explain what you should know about character and fitness requirements and the NCBE application process, which process begins at the start of your 2L year. 

Attendance will be recorded and is mandatory for all day students.  Again, a recording will be made available for evening students who cannot attend during the day.  Pizza will be served.

SPS Seminar: Topology of Genomic Sequences

Time: 12:30 pm to 1:20 am

Contact: Chelsea Fielding · · 5048653647

Location: Monroe Hall, Room 152

Please join us for our next SPS Seminar, Topology of Genomic Sequences via the Sequential Subword Order, presented by Rafal Komandarczyk of Tulane University. 

The seminar will be held Thursday, March 30th from 12:30-1:20 in Monroe 152.




“Algebraic topology is the area of mathematics concerned with properties of spaces. Simple examples of spaces are shapes, such as spheres, cylinders or polyhedra. In particular, algebraic topology provides researchers with powerful algebraic invariants such as Betti numbers or the Euler characteristic, which help to distinguish general spaces. The recent new direction in data analysis (known as Topological Data Analysis or TDA) attempts to capture properties of large data sets by thinking about the data as an abstract shape and using the algebraic invariants as indicators of these properties. In this talk, I will discuss basic constructions and objects of algebraic topology, and show one possible way we can think about genomic sequences as shapes or topological spaces. I will also present experimental evidence that this can be a beneficial approach for the analysis of genomic sequences.” –Dr. Komendarczyk




Pizza & refreshments will be served!

The Spitfire Grill

Time: 7:30 pm to 9 pm

Contact: Stephanie Miller · · (504) 865-3840

Location: Lower Depths Theater, 1st Floor, Comm./Music Complex

Cost: $12 Admission, $8 w/Student ID, Seniors, Loyola Faculty/Staff Get Tickets

The Spitfire Grill music and book by James Valq; lyrics and book by Fred Alley; based on the film by the same name by Lee David Zlotoff. Directed by C. Patrick Gendusa.                             

Winner of the Richard Rodgers Production Award, administered by The American Academy of Arts and Letters, this musical depicts the journey of a young woman just released from prison who decides to start her life anew in a rural Wisconsin town. In The New York Times, Ben Brantley wrote that “the songs are shiny with tunefulness, hope, and all-American inflections of country and folk." Also in The New York Times, Alvin Klein declared the show “a soul-satisfying new musical. The Spitfire Grill is a complete work of theatrical resourcefulness. A compelling story that flows with grace and carries the rush of anticipation. The warm, indigenous American folk sound of Mr. Valcq’s score is, harmonically and melodically, as theatrical as it is grass roots. Mr. Alley’s lyrics accomplish the considerable feat of poetically offering inspiration while holding the syrup. The musical is freeing. It is penetrated by honesty and it glows.”

By Tennessee Williams

Directed by Mel. Cook

Featuring Leslie Castay as Princess Kosmonopolis and Martin Bradford as Chance Wayne

Presented in partnership with the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival

Southern Rep Theatre is in residence at the Loyola University Department of Theatre Arts.

Melting in the heat of the Deep South, a dwindling star is swept up in a race against time. Fueled by booze, pills, and entitlement Alexandra del Lago (Leslie Castay) places herself in the care of Chance Wayne, an ambitious gigolo with less than a heart of gold and a drama of his own unfolding.
