The Biodiesel Program at Loyola University Chicago’s Institute of Environmental Sustainability is hosting its annual Thanksgiving cooking oil collection drive. Community members who deep fry their Thanksgiving turkeys or have containers of used cooking oil in their kitchens are encouraged to donate it to the University. Students will turn the oil donations into biodiesel, a renewable replacement of petroleum diesel fuel. The fuel helps power shuttle buses running between Loyola’s Lake Shore and Water Tower campuses.
To kick off the holiday season, Loyola University Chicago, Rogers Park Business Alliance, and Alderman Joe Moore of the 49th Ward are co-hosting the inaugural Polar Palooza, a two-day outdoor winter festival, at Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus for Chicago’s north side.
Loyola’s Cuneo Mansion and Gardens is partnering with the Village of Vernon Hills for the annual Winter Wonderland Light Show. Visitors will experience 97 acres of holiday lights from their own vehicles, accompanied by music from a local radio station.
Loyola University Chicago has received a $1.3 million grant from the US Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) to support its recent milestone partnership agreement with the African Union. Under the terms set in the Memorandum of Understanding between Loyola and the African Union that was signed in Washington, DC, last month, the partnership will assist the African Union and African Regional Economic Communities (RECs) in strengthening governance and the rule of law to ensure peace and stability in Africa.
Loyola University Chicago’s Retreat and Ecology Campus has announced a series of culinary classes that begin December 13, 2014 and will run through May 14, 2015. All classes are open to the public.
Loyola University Chicago’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts will celebrate the holiday season with annual performances, Joyola! and Lessons and Carols, featuring Loyola student musicians and performers. Both productions will include an array of music, including traditional holiday favorites.
