There’s no mistaking that the 2018 midterm elections are different.
At the core of all lessons in the University of Richmond journalism department is one central goal: to teach storytelling. And so, as students of this fine department, the members of The Collegian Editorial Board have a story to tell. It is the story of a small number of professors who relentlessly pursue the best out of their students. It is the story of how that department’s strengths have created an unsustainable demand. And it is the story of why we feel the department desperately needs a fifth full-time professor position. Read on for our collective stories, and sign the petition for a new professor here.
After 34 years teaching at the University of Richmond, Professor Mike Spear is retiring. The oldest professor at UR, he gave us our first Fs ever in his Copy Editing course — a prerequisite for being a Collegian editor — and he is without a doubt The Collegian’s biggest supporter and critic. What follows is an appreciation for the man who is, in our opinion, one of the greatest professors this university will ever know.
Enough is enough.
Nothing excites college students more than a snow day.
A selection of The Collegian's editors attended a brief performance by the Theatre for Social Change group on campus. Consisting of ten students from various fields of study, the group acted out a classroom scenario. The scene focused on one class' inability to shed stereotyped groupings including, gender, sexuality, race and Greek life, with a professor who was blind to that inability.
The cluster of blue and silver Pinwheels for Prevention have been spinning all week on the Boatwright lawn to raise awareness for child abuse. But another form of abuse has been spinning itself more subtly through the social interactions on our own campus. There have been three reported sexual assaults in the past four weeks.
During the past two months, there has been more crime on campus than most of us could have ever expected. The vandalism, break-ins and assaults have caused many to wonder whether the University of Richmond is really as safe as it proudly claims to be.
During the past few days, The Collegian staff has heard many rumors, stories and questions about some violent and disturbing incidents that occurred on campus last weekend. As a staff, we have attempted to learn as much as possible about the recent events, but unfortunately, much of the information either remains unknown or is being withheld.
President Edward Ayers is preparing to lead this university at a time when it's rapidly evolving. With this in mind, we urge Ayers to first address a variety of our concerns. First, students are suffering from over-programming and tremendous stress. Visits to counseling services are at an all-time high. We're tired and overworked. A combination of driven students and a surplus of opportunities has resulted in over-involvement. That's to be expected when so many of us came here with outstanding resumes and seemed determined to accomplish the same thing — if not more — in college. If we're so committed to doing well in our classes, how can we find time to evaluate and appreciate what we've learned?
