Emily Arches is a sophomore from Baltimore, Maryland, majoring in business administration with a concentration in finance. Arches is the president of the equestrian team, a writing consultant and a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. She started riding horses in first grade and said it would have felt foreign to go to college and not ride. The equestrian team comprises 17 members, all female, but anyone can join. This past weekend, University of Richmond came in first place at a show at Randolph-Macon College. Arches said she felt accomplished when the team performed well. It is difficult to manage because they all have different backgrounds and varying riding experience, but the job is really rewarding, she said. Arches said her biggest challenge had been keeping team spirits high and promoting team unity because riding was an individual sport. It is challenging to be the middle man between riders and coaches, to keep high levels of respect and to make sure each rider improves. Arches wants people to know that the equestrian team has increased its prevalence and success a lot in the past three years. Richmond’s team is strong in its region, and the team is very competitive. Something you don’t know about Arches? She can’t swim. Here’s a glimpse into a day in her life:
Abigail Evangeliste is a sophomore from Donegal, Pennsylvania, majoring in business economics. Evangeliste came to University of Richmond to join the Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps. She has wanted to be an officer in the United States Army since she was 14 years old. Evangeliste’s schedule is different from most other students, except maybe athletes, she said. Time management is important for her to stay on top of school work, extracurricular activities and ROTC. In addition to physical training, ROTC students learn map reading, land navigation, how to lead a squad or platoon, relevant medical information and how to prepare for certain situations. Evangeliste’s biggest challenge has been feeling as if there is not enough time to do everything. She said she thought she could be doing better academically if not for her other responsibilities, which could be frustrating at times and hard to balance. Evangeliste wants people to know that ROTC is not “super hardcore.” It is manageable but takes commitment, and it is more serious and pre-professional than some other clubs. Something you don’t know about Evangeliste? Her mom is from Thailand. Here’s a glimpse into a day in her life:
Jared Ingersoll is a senior from Harrison City, Pennsylvania, majoring in chemistry. He plays on University of Richmond’s ice hockey team and also works for UREMS. Ingersoll became an EMT because he was interested in health care as a freshman. He has worked on UREMS for three years and plans to apply to medical schools in June. Ingersoll’s favorite aspect of the job is how unexpected it can be. Every call is different, and his job is never boring. His biggest challenge is balancing school work and other activities alongside being an EMT, but it’s manageable and forces him to work on his time management skills. Ingersoll wants other students to know that alcohol-related calls are only 30 percent of what UREMS responds to. A lot of calls are serious and can range from chest pain or an allergic reaction to cardiac arrest. Something you don’t know about Ingersoll? He worked as a customer service agent for Spirit Airlines a few summers ago, and “basically got paid to be yelled at by upset customers.” Here’s a glimpse into a day in his life:
Taylor Deitrick is a junior from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, with a major in leadership studies and a minor in history. She is a forward on the Richmond field hockey team, which recently won the A-10 Championship. Deitrick has been playing field hockey since sixth grade, and has similarly instilled a love of the sport in other children. For the past two years, she has coached the Richmond Panthers United Field Hockey Club team, and has coached in summer camps. Deitrick enjoys the culture of her team and having a chance to improve alongside the other players. A challenge for her this past season had been finding her flow and honing her skills. Deitrick wants Richmond students to know that student-athletes work extremely hard to balance their classes and sports. Student-athletes make the decision to do it because they love their sports; things are not handed to them. Something you don’t know about Deitrick? She sang in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome with her high school choir, and she also drives a manual car. Here’s a glimpse into a day in her life.
Katy Norfleet currently serves as president of the Panhellenic Council. She is a senior from Wilton, Connecticut, with a major in healthcare and society and minor in biology. Norfleet wanted to serve as the Panhellenic president to start initiatives on campus that embody sisters helping sisters and women helping women. Last fall, Norfleet studied abroad in Khon Kaen, Thailand, where she organized a community beautification project to clean up villages. Over the summer, she went to Peru with the Richmond Global Health Alliance, which travels to regions with no access to healthcare or modern resources. Norfleet has been honored to work for the Greek community, and has felt fortunate to be a part of bringing an additional sorority to campus. Something you don’t know about her? Every time she goes to CVS, she has to buy the latest celebrity gossip magazine. Here’s a glimpse into a day in her life.

Something you didn’t know about Groves? His high school job was pumping gas in Princeton, New Jersey. Here’s a glimpse into a day in his life.
Beverly Hills 90210 had The Peach Pit, Boy Meets World had Chubbie's and Saved by the Bell had The Max. Here at the University of Richmond, we have Ukrop's.
"There are gonna be a lot of Sarah Palins and Jokers this year," Ronnie said.
A brightly painted plate mounted on the wall of Alison Bartel Keller's office reads "A Scare is in the Air." Against the yellow background, a green-faced witch is shown stirring a large, black cauldron. Although I presumed that the plate was simply a seasonal addition to the office decor, the phrase was poignant, given the gavel-striking tone with which so many students hark the name--"Bartel."
The campus post office was bustling on Monday, with students buying 42 cent stamps to submit their voter registrations before the deadline.
If the University of Richmond had a Gossip Girl, it would probably be Charlie Kline.
"Who's next?" she calls as you step up to the plate.
In college, it's easy to lose track of time, but at the University of Richmond it's difficult to let 12:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. slip by without deciphering the familiar tune that's been gothic-ified by Boatwright's bell tower.
If you had a beer can in your hand last weekend, there is a good chance that Lonnie was the guy who sold it to whoever gave it to you.
Zorro is a nobleman, Superman is a reporter and Spidey (no, not Spiderman) uses "a job in athletic marketing" as a cover for his secret identity as the man behind the grin.
"Hi honey! What you want?" she sings even before the welcoming door chime has the chance to fade out.
It's been a long day. The last thing you want to do is walk from X-lot to North Court, in the pouring rain, with a broken leg, carrying those boxes for a friend - so you decide to drive.
