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.
Adnan Hajizada, Azerbaijani activist and University of Richmond alumnus, lost his most recent appeal on Wednesday, causing his supporters to continue to criticize the government.
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.
Alumnus and activist Adnan Hajizada's appeal is set for Feb. 6 after being delayed twice, once by the defense.

For the second year in a row, the University of Richmond football team beat the College of William & Mary by three points thanks to a walk-off field goal.
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.
A judge in Azerbaijan sentenced alumnus and activist Adnan Hajizada to two years in prison today for hooliganism and causing bodily harm.
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.
Registration for spring semester 2010 is coming faster than I ever imagined, and making a schedule I can live with (that satisfies the remainder of my requirements) is causing my hair to fall out. Not really, but close enough, especially because I put off my foreign language requirement and have to take a class that is five days a week with two days having two classes. Word of advice: Take your foreign language requirement NOW if you need it.
A raccoon was captured by University of Richmond Police officers Friday afternoon after it attempted to enter Boatwright Memorial Library and showed signs of being rabid.
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."
