After multiple delays and some frustration, University of Richmond completed its renovation of Pitt Field, home to Richmond's baseball team, last week. The Spiders, who faced an erratic and constantly changing schedule due to the renovations, celebrated the much-anticipated home opener with a massive win against Cornell on Tuesday. The Collegian borrowed a drone -- yes, a drone -- to capture shots of the new Pitt Field, whose playing surface is now synthetic turf rather than grass. Stay tuned for future arial footage of Pitt Field.

If you’re prone to procrastination by scrolling through photos of cute animals on the Internet, this event is for you.Study Break for the Soul provides students during finals week with activities like arts and crafts, movies, snacks, massages, and of course, playing with puppies. And if you noticed more dogs than usual this semester, you were right.  The Office of the Chaplaincy partnered with CAPS to provide more activities and – you guessed it – more dogs. In addition to pups owned by faculty and staff in the Chaplaincy, interns at CAPS initiated a partnership with Caring Canines to bring therapy dogs to campus as well. Because of the cold, rainy weather, the dogs were moved into the Hanging Lounge in the Commons, which was soon packed with students seeking out a furry friend.“It was the perfect surprise after my final today,” Ryan Berning, ’17, said. “It gave me a little taste of home.”
