Margaret Bryner, HEOP director at St. Bonaventure, describes Loney as “highly energetic, incredibly creative and always positive. She has stepped outside the box she was in when she got here as a shy, reserved freshman.”
Loney’s involvement on campus spans numerous organizations. She has been a staff member with campus radio station WSBU 88.3 The Buzz, and has been very active in the university’s Slam Poetry Club, serving as co-president and secretary, and as an enthusiastic performer. She has routinely placed in slam poetry competitions.
She has also been active in the university’s theater program, acting in five productions and designing costumes for three. She was twice nominated for the Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship Competition.
Loney has been involved with St. Bonaventure’s student-run ad agency, the Kwerkworks, through the university’s chapter of the American Advertising Federation, and she participated in the university’s prestigious Francis E. Kelley Oxford Program, studying abroad in England during the summer of 2012.
She has also been a volunteer at St. Francis House of Boston, Mass., which provides services to the poor and homeless.
Loney is a graduate of the High School of Economics and Finance in New York.
She plans to move to Atlanta after graduation to attend copywriting classes at the The Creative Circus, a portfolio-building educational program.
