He doesn't always star in promotional videos for the Octaves' Spring Fever a cappella concert, but when he does, senior Bennie DeSalvo is dubbed by his fellow group members as the most interesting Octave in the world. In honor of the 20th anniversary of Spring Fever on March 28, the Octaves titled their concert "Dos Equis," and opened their set with a video of their search for a high-caliber addition to the group. The characters in the video found that addition in DeSalvo, but his impact on the Octaves ranged beyond a video made in jest. "Bennie is a leader on stage," Oliver Lee, sophomore Octave, said.

Ten students participated in the Bonner Center for Civic Engagement's Spring Break in Richmond program, which focused on education in the Richmond area for the second consecutive year. CCE staff members chose this theme because of the volume of students who regularly volunteer in schools or after-school programs, said Adrienne Piazza, the CCE coordinator for student development and educational programming. "I think there are two common responses to the question, 'Why are you interested in participating in this program?'" Piazza said.
American Airlines and US Airways officially announced their plans to merge last week in an $11 billion deal that will effectively create the world's largest airline company. The new airline will take the name of American Airlines and will be run by US Airways CEO Doug Parker, according to CBS News. According to CBS, the merger still has to be approved by federal regulators but that is "not expected to be a major hurdle." With Spring Break starting this weekend, many University of Richmond students will be flying to various destinations throughout the next week.

Some students at the University of Richmond are spending their spring break doing service work, discussing and learning about a social issue and bonding with their peers during an alternative spring break trip. Senior Chelsea Safran and junior Helene Calabrese will be returning to the highlands of Pampas Grande, Peru, on an alternative spring break trip for the second and third time, respectively. The trip to Peru focuses on health issues in the village of Pampas Grande and is led by Sean McKenna, a professor and pediatrician at the Medical College of Virginia. Safran said the group of about 15 students was preparing for the trip by deciding which medical supplies to bring and dividing into committees focused on specific health concerns, such as women's health.
The University of Richmond's football team is rebounding from a season that ended earlier than the team planned.

The University of Richmond's 12-member jazz combo and its director, Mike Davison, took a spring break trip to Greece and played eight gigs in Athens and Thessaloniki. The group played at sites from the Philharmonic of Greece to Mylos nightclub -- different venues that several jazz members said were some of the country's most popular. Davison, who has been the Richmond jazz director for 25 years and toured with groups such as Motown and The Temptations, landed the Greece opportunity when a guidance counselor from the American Farm School in Thessaloniki heard his combo perform at a University of Richmond reception.
Many University of Richmond students eagerly anticipate an exotic, beach spring break vacation. Or perhaps many are traveling down to New Orleans for the creme de la creme of college spring breaks: Mardi Gras. But one group of Richmond students will forgo many stereotypical college spring breaks for one of service.
The University of Richmond's women's tennis team has been picked to finish first in the Atlantic-10 Conference this spring. The team has won the conference title the last two years, so senior Kelly Tidwell said it was no surprise to be ranked at the top again. Richmond usually plays against only two to three conference teams during the regular season because head coach Mark Wesselink works hard to get the team good competition outside the A-10 conference, Tidwell said. Wesselink said that this year's out-of-conference schedule features teams that are similar to Richmond in talent. "We expect a lot of close matches," Wesselink said.
