On Saturday, April 30th, the Ramonat Scholars, their families, and Loyola faculty gathered in Piper Hall for presentations of their final research projects.  The event was a fantastic success and a good time was had by all.

At the end of the event, the Susan Ramonat Prize for Scholarly Excellence was awarded to Daniel Snow for his paper “The Sacre-Coeur of Chicago: Franco-American Devotion and Community, 1880-1920.”  Honorable mentions were awarded to Shannon Koelsch for “Romance and Rebellion: The Nina Van Zandt Story” and Guy Valponi for “Holy Cannoli and Saintly Sweets: Confections in the Lives of Southern Italian Immigrants and their American Descendants.”
