One of Loyola’s most famous alumni, comedian Bob Newhart, graced the Water Tower Campus today with a live interview in front of current students. The star famous for his stand up comedy, TV show “the Bob Newhart show” and such films as “Catch-22” and “Elf,” graduated from Loyola University Chicago in 1952.

Newhart admits, “I probably wouldn’t have gotten into Loyola today. The standards are too high.”

Well, he did get in and so have many other celebrities. Here are a few other entertainment personalities that attended Loyola:

  • Leslie David Baker: Known for his dead pan humor as Stanley Hudson in The Office.
  • James Iha: The Japanese American guitarist for the Smashing Pumpkins majored in graphic design before dropping out to focus on the band.
  • Bill Rancic: Famous for not being fired in Season one of the Apprentice, and for marrying E! host, Giuliana Rancic.
  • Ian Brennan: Graduated in 2000 and went on to be the creator of  Glee.
