By: Jade Anderson, Rambler Buzz Staff Writer

Let the Arch Madness begin! Show your Rambler pride and support Loyola’s men’s basketball team at their first Missouri Valley Conference Arch Madness Tournament from March 6-9 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri. Instead of watching the games from a television screen, Loyola is providing students a chance to witness all the action first hand.

“We really wanted to make this trip affordable for everyone so all students have the opportunity to come,” says Arch Madness Student Planning Committee member Heather Afriyie.

To go to Arch Madness, students can choose from either the St. Louis Package ($30) or the Rambler Package ($40).

Rambler Package includes ($40)
  -Roundtrip transportation to St. Louis
  -Admission to all Loyola tournament games
  -Pep Rally in St. Louis
  -A student designed t-shirt
  -Mystery event in St. Louis
  -A hotel subsidy at the Renaissance St. Louis Grand Hotel

If you can’t wait for Arch Madness to begin, then don't miss the March to the Arch Launch Party that will be held January 15, at 5:30 p.m., in the Damen Student Center. The event will include free food, trip giveaways, and cool prizes, as well as feature Porter Moser, men’s basketball coach; Dr. Rob Kelly, vice president for student development; and Sister Jean speaking about the importance of supporting the Loyola’s men’s basketball team.

After the launch party, head over to watch our men’s team take on Drake University at 7 p.m. in Gentile Arena.

“Coming to the Arch Madness Tournament will bring about a sense of school pride at Loyola,” says Afriyie. “We know that everybody loves Loyola and Arch Madness is our chance to show it.”
