The youngest and oldest of Westhampton College students gathered Saturday in Cannon Memorial Chapel to celebrate the duties and privileges of being Westhampton women. They were joined by hundreds of alumnae to honor the centennial of the founding of Westhampton College.
In 1948, Nina Landolina left Fort Lauderdale and rode the
train to Richmond for the first time.
You will find two window decals on my Nissan Versa. One is a University of Richmond shield. The other is Berklee College of Music's logo. Even though I was at Berklee for only one semester and this is my third year at UR, I somehow feel more loyal to the first school I attended. Here's the story of my switch.
The University of Richmond is currently working on a $2 million renovation of Henry M. Cannon Memorial Chapel. The work has altered several on-campus events, including forcing Proclamation Night to be rescheduled for Nov. 10.
The Westhampton College senior and first-year classes celebrated Proclamation Night on Sunday in the Robins Center to highlight the importance of women's leadership, friendship and the Honor Code.
Proclamation Night, Westhampton College's oldest tradition, is a ceremony that marks the beginning and end of the college journey for freshman and senior women.
I have spent some time poring over both Ms. Hailand's and Ms. Parker's arguments for and against Proclamation Night, yet I feel that there are some key points that have been neglected. The first and rather petty issue I feel I need to address is that I did in fact attend Proclamation Night during my first year and found the event rather perplexing because I do not embody traditional female gender norms.
For all who don't know, Proclamation Night and Investiture are ceremonies that first-year students and seniors partake in together. (Proclamation Night being for the women and Investiture being for the men.)
The university community welcomed the Class of 2014 on consecutive weekends in September. Richmond College hosted its Investiture Ceremony September 12 and Westhampton College September 19.
Recently I've been waking up with night sweats and experiencing a warm and fuzzy feeling inside. At first, I suspected that I had been bitten by a radioactive spider and decided that before I was ready to take on the Green Goblin, I would have to trade in my identity for a red and blue mesh onesy from American Apparel (what? I might as well get something I can wear to the lodges, too).
On Sunday, wearing my graduation robe along with the rest of the University of Richmond senior women, going through Proclamation Night for the second time, was a bit surreal.
Members of the Westhampton College class of 2013 took part in the annual Proclamation Night ceremony Sunday, Sept. 20. The ceremony featured a class photograph, a walk across campus, reflective speeches by upperclassmen and the signing of the Honor Code.
To be trendy, my column this week is going to be the letter I would have written to myself had I gone to Proclamation Night when I was a first year, but with a little twist. I didn't miss Proclamation Night because I didn't want to go; rather, I didn't go because I didn't know about it. I transferred my sophomore year and because of a lack of communication, I missed it. To be honest, I felt a little left out on Sunday when I went as a senior and everyone was laughing at themselves and getting all teary while opening their letters. So, I'm going to join in on the fun. This is going to be more of a what-I-would-tell-my-past-self, because I have no idea what I would have written when I first got here.
Dear Sorry Senior Self,
