Loyola uses yearbook photos to help celebrate centennial

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Loyola University in New Orleans is celebrating its 100th year in existence in 2012, and recently the university launched a special centennial website for the occasion.

The centennial website is full of memories from Loyola’s past 100 years, and the site uses images that were gathered from past editions of the university’s Wolf yearbook.

Digitized photos from Loyola’s yearbook dating as far back as 1924 are stored online in the university library’s archives.

“Our goal was to show the world that Loyola was and still is a place of innovation, academic achievement and lasting friendships,” said Crystal Forte, web content strategist, in a university news release.
