The Loyola University Ramblers basketball team will play this weekend in the NCAA basketball semi-finals.  Much of the school’s recent “rebound” is attributed to the school’s chancellor, Michael J. Garanzini, S.J., a St. Louis native.  Garanzini served as the 23rd president of Loyola of Chicago from 2001 to 2015.  According to the school’s website, “Much of Father Garanzini's academic and administrative experience comes from his years at Saint Louis University, where he held several academic and administrative posts. (He) received his BA in psychology from Saint Louis University in 1971, the same year he entered the Society of Jesus.”

Also, Loyola’s Board of Trustees includes St. Louis native Bob Clark, Chairman and CEO of Clayco.  Clark served on St. Louis University’s Board of Trustees until February 2016 when he resigned in response to the school’s dismissal of university  president Lawrence Biondi, S.J.
