30 Years Ago: the Apple II in Loyola’s Computer Labs #ThrowbackThursday

loyola-computer-labs-1987

Loyola’s campus grew in the 1980s with the addition of the Broadway campus, formerly the campus of St. Mary’s Dominican College. The Broadway campus, located on St. Charles Avenue at Broadway, is a few blocks from Loyola’s main campus, and became home to the School of Law, the Law Library, the Visual Arts department, the Division of Institutional Advancement, and Residential Life. Also in 1986, the Communications/Music Building was dedicated. The building, constructed on the corner of St. Charles Avenue and Calhoun Street, housed the Department of Communications and the College of Music. The six-level Recreational Sports Complex was dedicated in February 1988. The Activities Quad, between Bobet Hall and the Danna Center, was renamed in 1989 to honor the six Jesuits, their cook, and her daughter who were slain in El Salvador.

Here’s to looking forward to the next 30 years, and thinking now about what we’ll be looking back upon then, including single-board computers, Internet of Things projects, and wearables!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
