After an extensive application process, the dean search committee selected Patrice Rankine as the University’s next dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, effective June 1. Rankine, the current dean of arts and humanities at Hope College and a scholar in classical languages, will replace Dean Kathleen Skerrett.
Triceragoose on patrol.
Only a year ago it would have seemed impossible. The tyrannical reign of the Triceragoose is as closely associated with University of Richmond as a ten figure endowment or a terrible Wi-Fi connection. But could it be that the influence of the Triceragoose is on the decline? I initially found it hard to believe, but in the past year there is no denying a downward trend.
Bloomberg Businessweek magazine recently ranked the University of Richmond E. Clairborne Robins School of Business No. 16 on its 2014 list of America's best undergraduate business programs.

It is certainly an odd situation to be in when your pen can destroy worlds, and it is a situation that our president finds himself in at this very moment. Sure, President Obama may be more concerned with the state of this economy and, of course, his re-election, but what sits on his desk right now carries considerable weight.

One child dies every six seconds from a hunger-related cause. One $10.50 meal in the Heilman Dining Center could feed 252 starving children in poor, tribal Orissa, India.
This September, a group of girls stood outside their dorm in a large cluster waiting for a ride to a party. A salt and pepper-haired older man in a big van pulled over to offer them a ride. "Where y'all headed?" he asked as the girls entered the van without care or worry. "The apartments, thanks Wayne!" one of the girls yelled as they all settled comfortably into the warm seats of the University of Richmond Safety Shuttle.
The university's Steam Plant, also referred to as the power plant, operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year so the university community has enough steam to generate hot water, heat and air conditioning in all of the buildings on campus.
Well, University of Richmond, it's time. On March 25, which is the date of the next Collegian issue because of spring break, The Collegian will have its next news editor, and I will hand over the reigns. I will have a Rice Report, but I wanted to say a few final words before doing introductions.
There seem to be several places and things on campus that no one knows about. We see them every day and ask the person with whom we're walking to D-Hall (or ourselves), "What is that?" or "Who does that belong to?" or "I wonder whether we have any buildings built over an old swimming pool?"
Oddly enough, you can.
Alex Lebenstein was a Holocaust survivor who had more than enough reasons to hate, but was instead an advocate for tolerance and forgiveness. He died Thursday, Jan. 28, at the age of 82.
"Intelligence plus character, that is the goal of true education."
In last week's column I talked about the basics of Reserve Officers Training Corps. This week, I am going to talk about what happens to those cadets who graduate from the program.
The Reserve Officers' Training Corps is a national program that allows people who are interested in joining the U.S. Army to go to college while training for the Army. The Army will pay for a portion of tuition, depending on the cost. Room and board, etc., can be covered by scholarships, loans or however else students decide to pay for school.
I had never even heard of Robert Crumb before Tuesday, when we tried to find someone to cover the event for The Collegian. In the end, it wasn't covered, but then Tim Patterson submitted his opinion piece. Now, I have done what I can to read up on the subject -- I read all of the submitted opinions and those on the Facebook page, "Protest Crumb at UR."
Those bells you speak of that chime a lovely song at 12:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. every day (and for some special occasions such as weddings) come from the electric carillon in the base of Boatwright Tower. A carillon is played by pressing keys and using foot pedals, similar to an organ. The original carillons use levers to hit bells either as individual notes or chords, several notes at the same time. Electric carillons don't have any real bells in them but instead imitate bell sounds.
Multiple construction projects on campus have changed where people can park, causing a lot of angst for faculty, staff, students and, believe it or not, Parking Services members. I spoke with Natalia Green, director of Parking Services, and Bill Rawluk, the senior parking enforcement specialist (we call him Mr. Bill), to get an idea of exactly how construction has changed parking.
