On Tuesday, Kappa Alpha Theta hosted KATwalk, its annual philanthropy that supports the sorority's national philanthropy, Court Appointed Special Advocates, which aids volunteers in their help for neglected or abused children that go through the court system. KATwalk is a runway event where local stores donate clothes for the models to wear and sell. During the second part of the night, various organizations get up on stage to give their take of what a runway appearance should look like. The teams are judged by Richmond faculty.

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.
