Loyola’s Annual Jesuit Jam

Loyola’s Annual Jesuit Jam

Loyola is the nation’s largest Jesuit university. Loyola’s Jesuits (the Jesuits are a specific order of Catholic priests) sponsor a men’s basketball game every year at Loyola’s now new-and-improved Gentile Arena. The “Jesuit Jam” of 2012 took place this past Friday when the Ramblers mens’ basketball team took on Cleveland State. The Jesuits gave away free swag and hosted a bunch of games and events during breaks in the game: a Jesuit dance contest and musical chairs game between the priests and a few student athletes. It was a really fun night!

Here is a peek at some of the photos I took that night for the Loyola Phoenix (All photos were taken by me!)
