Students and faculty first reported sightings of elaborate architectural white board drawings in the Gottwald Center for the Sciences three weeks ago, but the artist, who leaves behind nothing but a bear claw signature, remains anonymous.
Some of the images include the Great Wall of China, the Colosseum, the Taj Mahal, Chitzen Itza, the Arc de Triomphe and the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Using only an arsenal of polychromatic Expo markers, the artist draws these images on random public white boards throughout the building's first three floors.
Sophomore Patricia McNamara said the artist must have used a personal set of markers because the colors in the images were bolder and more varied than the ones professors used in the classroom.
"The drawings are out of control," McNamara said.
Arts and Sciences Dean Andrew F. Newcomb will step down and return to the department of psychology on July 10 after serving 10 years.
When Newcomb officially turns over his position, he said he planned to take a one-year sabbatical and return to the classroom in August 2012 as a professor of psychology.
"Hopefully, during my sabbatical, I will be able to develop my courses so that students will have a good learning experience," Newcomb said.
When Newcomb returns to the department of psychology, it will have been 13 years since he last taught, he said.
Newcomb has served the University of Richmond in many different ways since he was hired in 1984.
The University of Richmond opened the doors of the new addition to the Robins School of Business, Queally Hall, this semester, advancing the school for business students and faculty alike.
Queally Hall had several donors, but it was named in honor of Paul and Anne-Marie Queally, both of whom were 1986 Phi Beta Kappa graduates.
The neon lights of Las Vegas, Nev., have wielded a magnetic attraction over generations of those who dream of fortune and lust.
Guy: "Hey, [girl's name]! How are you?" (Ye olde Richmonde tip-of-the-hat gestural question, which more than certainly does not require an answer other than...)
Girl: "Good, what about you?" (Naturally, he's --)
Guy: "Good." (Action complete.) "So, do you have a lot of work to do tonight?"
And then, in what I would have thought would be taken as an irresistibly Michael Cera-ish way, "Just because, you know ... I just wanted to know if you had any plans because ... well, me and a few people were talking about maybe hanging out for a little while."
His line here continues, but I just want to stop and note that to complete the visual of the situation, you must know that he stood in one spot and pivoted in place in order to maintain eye contact as she continuously sidled around him toward the library entranceway.
Despite her impressively rapid sideways movement, I was able to catch her eyes rolling from my seat on the library bench as he tried to find the right way to ask her to chill with him.
Guy (cont.): "Anyway, I'd love if you came and hung out, too." (Phew -- right as she got her first foot in the door.) "I mean, if you don't have too much work, or whatever."
Girl: "Uh -- now I do." (I'm not kidding.
Before I begin, allow me to give some insight into who I am and what I believe.
I am politically and socially liberal.
With about eight minutes left in the game, the University of Richmond was amidst another second-half meltdown with Coastal Carolina at Richmond's 2-yard line and trailing by eight.
An increasing number of faculty and staff members at the University of Richmond are using podcasts and other forms of technology to supplement typical teaching settings.
Fred Hagemeister, coordinator for academic technology services in the UR Center for Teaching, Learning & Technology, said the CTLT liaisons work with faculty and staff each semester in workshops to teach about podcasts.
Hagemeister said that although podcasts have typically been a way for professors to give students access to course information or lectures outside the classroom, the small-class setting at Richmond has led to the development of more interactive uses of podcasts and other technologies.
Scott Bray, director of technology for the education department, assists education minors with learning to create podcasts for their student teaching classrooms.
"We look at different ways students can integrate technology into the classroom," he said.
Bray also said he thought the Technology Learning Center and related departments had provided a variety of opportunities to faculty for professional development around podcasting.
Senior Emma Hines, an education minor, created a podcast in her Education through Technology class with Bray.
"We were required to create a podcast that could be used in an elementary classroom lesson," Hines said.
University of Richmond students presented their summer research Sept.10 in the Gottwald Science Center during the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Science Symposium.

University of Richmond students may have noticed that some significant changes have been made to the campus during the summer, including updated classrooms, computers and other electronic equipment.
The new Carole Weinstein International Building (CWIC) has been the biggest focus of technological advancement on campus.
Dear Fellow Students,
It has come to our attention that there has been a resurgence of derogatory statements made about fellow members of the University of Richmond community on the Internet.
Our intent is not to pinpoint a certain Web site that facilitates this type of behavior; rather we seek to raise awareness and to create a community of respect, responsibility and acceptance.
The University of Richmond has once again received the Beckman Scholars award of $96,500, which will be split evenly between five student researchers in the biology and chemistry departments.
Richmond was one of nine schools to receive the award, said Carol Parish, a chemistry professor.
A device that could transform the music industry, according to its creator, won first place and a $3,500 prize in the third annual UR Business Pitch Competition.
"It is the Rosetta Stone of learning how to play an instrument and the Kindle of sheet music," said senior Tom Borwick, creator of the VIVO.
The VIVO is a portable electronic device that can store and display sheet music, and listen, record and follow the musician as he or she plays an instrument, he said.
During Borwick's final round presentation to the panel of judges, senior Jessica Clough played violin while using a prototype model of the VIVO.

The National Science Foundation has awarded the University of Richmond a $300,000 grant for the purchase of a computer cluster for biology, chemistry and materials science.
Carol Parish, a chemistry professor, led the effort to write a proposal that explained the importance of increasing computational capacity and described the research into computational chemistry and biology that could be done with the grant.
The proposal was researched and written with the help of faculty from Richmond and other universities, who will also benefit by using the computer cluster via the Internet.
Not all of us are lucky enough to be enrolled in Ecology 200 for a small portion of our lives. As one of the lucky ones, I thought I'd share a few of the more interesting aspects of Charles Darwin's observations about various animal species with all those unlucky students who are missing out.
