To my fellow Spiders,
My story may be much like yours: I was the first in my family to graduate from college. I was able to pay for my degree by working part time and taking on student debt. And after finishing my education, I tried to start a business but failed – not once, but twice.
We are sending this open letter to The Collegian to address an issue that concerns us all. We have learned that the U.S. is sending 3,000 military troops to Africa “so the U.S. can boost and counter the outbreak of Ebola." We are concerned that sending military troops without cultural competency will hinder efforts rather than assist them. In our classes, we have found that International Aid workers have been going to African countries hit by Ebola for the past decade. They arrive, don hazmat suits and go to the rural regions hit by Ebola. There, with clinical efficiency, they arrive, remove bodies, take blood, disinfect and leave, often without speaking to anyone in the village to explain what they are doing and why. As a result, local people are often left to draw their own conclusions as to why bodies and blood were taken away without normal interactions of civility and humanity. Often, due to colonial-era abuse of rural citizens, paranoia reigns and people surmise the hazmat workers are “stealing organs or blood.” As a result, the site of the hazmat suits or of ambulances causes infected patients to run or to hide, exacerbating the spread of Ebola.
To The Collegian and Members of the UR Community,
I spent my time this weekend having e-versations with students, faculty and staff regarding the recent Collegian article. I am a firm believer that successful law enforcement is based on transparency, and I wanted to share with you my position.
I am extremely disappointed with the university's decision to stop providing academic planners to students this year.
We are halfway through the semester,and it has dawned on me that the frustration I have had during the past several weeks has not been school-related, but rather related to job opportunities on campus. It seems that, although there is an up-to-date list of job openings on the financial aid website, it is challenging to receive a reply from any of the prospective positions.
After reading the article "Studying Abroad: The Transition to Richmond," I couldn't help but notice that the sentiments in the article were quite different from mine studying at Maastricht University in the Netherlands.
I enjoyed reading the abroad experiences that many of my fellow classmates had abroad, and I agree with most of them. I studied abroad in Madrid in fall 2011, and it was a great experience academically and socially.
Multiple types of media affect our perceptions and realities about all aspects of our lives. Such has been the case recently at the University of Richmond involving a social event sponsored by Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. As it often happens, the use of social media provides information without full context or accuracy. Below are some facts regarding the social event:
I would like to reply to both of your writers, Ben Panko and Elliot Walden, about "Guns on campus."
Anna Kuta's "Response to: Five Shariah insights for students at UR,"posted Nov. 5, 2011, is a misleading and inflammatory description of Islamic law. As an Ahmadi Muslim, I take strong exception to the author's baseless claims that Islam requires us to impose its belief system using violent tactics against non-Muslims. To contextualize the actual verses she quoted, it should be known that Muslims were a persecuted minority in Arabia during Prophet Muhammad's era and faced a constant threat of annihilation.
Reading about the lecture given by Dr. Gilfoyle at UR, about nuclear weapons and the Conventional Test Ban Treaty, one particular statement stood out as particularly polemic in nature: "To be a good citizen and vote... you should care [about the CTBT]." As someone who may or may not be considered a good citizen, yet is unquestionably an active voter, let me offer my thoughts.
Hello Dean Newcomb,
On the evening of February the 23rd, I returned home to find a pile of neglected mail awaiting me. One such neglected letter came from the School of the Arts and Sciences, directly. I opened the letter.
Dear UR Community,
