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.
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.
You may have noticed that the coffee cup sleeves from 8:15 at Boatwright are not an ad for Starbucks, but have the faces of University of Richmond alumni who seem to be doing some awesome things with their post-Liberal-Arts lives. During the last three years, School of Arts and Sciences administrators have been buying coffee cup sleeves for 8:15 at Boatwright and putting on them photos and information about alumni and seniors who "turn their passion into their purpose."
During my various experiences with financial aid, I have figured out a few things that I think everyone should know in order to get the most out of all the aid the University of Richmond gives. I got some of my information from Cindy Deffenbaugh, director of student financial aid.
No, no more Popsicles were stolen. Although that would be hilarious and a little eerie (serial Popsicle thief, not cool), I wanted to expand on last week's column with a little more talk about free speech.
This week's question stemmed from last week's Police Report in which The Collegian included a report made to the university police department that said popsicles valued at $5 were taken from an apartment during the summer.
I live off campus so I know nothing about meal plans, but I met with Dee Hardy, director of Dining Services. What I learned was that the meal plan themselves have not changed much throughout the years, but the cost of meal plans continues to rise with tuition increases.
Google, which owns YouTube, signed a contract with a few media companies last Thursday to feature TV shows and movies on the Web site, according to an article in The New York Times. The merge is supposed to generate more advertising for YouTube, because it is not making enough money from its advertising on the user-generated content.
Warning: My column (dubbed the Rice Report by some Collegian staffers) this week will be full of quotes from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. "Look my liege!"
The Collegian is printed off campus by our good friend Travis at the printing press of a newspaper, The Progress Index. Thank you Ben for the question, even if you were coerced.
Sex, jobs and gossip.
