What is your favorite place that satisfies your hunger after a long day hitting the books at school?

Most answers would be a restaurant that has fast-food, or an establishment that pretends to have a healthy menu.

Be not afraid, healthy food does not necessarily mean tasteless food.

Diesel fueled cars making comeback

The automotive industry has changed significantly in the past decade, finally gearing automobiles to fit the “green” movement in today’s world.

No, this is not another article demanding that you must reduce greenhouse gases by driving your gas guzzling vehicle less, nor that you should drive small clown cars.

In fact, this is to suggest an alternative to hybrids if the Toyota Prius is not your style.

By Colin M. Prenger ’11

If someone were to mention the name Father Sullivan, would you be able to put this name with a face?

In 1960, Fr. Daniel Sullivan graduated from St. Ignatius College Prep in California (one year ahead of Fr. Eddie Reese, S.J.) and entered the Society of Jesus that same year.
