Registration day, D-day, The Hunger Games: Students call the day of class selection many names, and that day that many students dread is fast approaching.
Adam Lanza. James Holmes. Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. Chris Harper-Mercer. Elliot Rodger. Recognize any of these names? I certainly do. All are perpetrators of mass shootings at schools or other public places. All of them have had their faces and names plastered across television screens, smartphones and newspapers. All stick in our minds like glue.
The biannual Richmond Restaurant Week is happening from Oct. 19-25, and there are definitely some restaurants that you will want to visit.
Republican Presidential candidate John Kasich’s town hall forum at Richmond gained a significant amount of attention due to a comment he had made toward an undergraduate student during his Q & A. Though a small moment during the town hall forum, Kayla Solsbak wrote an article addressing Kasich’s comment, focusing upon his disrespectful language -- requesting mutual respect -- if nothing more than as a voter interested in politics. Dylan McAuley, an undergraduate student and a member of the Young Republicans club that had helped bring Governor Kasich to campus, responded to Kayla’s with an opinion piece designed to denounce and silence her. Though the situation can be perceived as minor or as a “joke,” it was one that was significant for others. All those who have experienced similar situations of microaggression, whether it be due to their gender, sexuality, race, ability, or ethnicity, understand this form of marginalization. Dylan’s article can be read both as a response to Kayla and it can stand alone. It must be read with a less biased level of critical analysis than was used on Kayla’s original article.
As I step on the elliptical for my daily sweat, I hear a ping from my phone. I immediately check and see I have an email from the campus police. Another “Timely Warning” is alerting me of another report of sexual assault on my college campus. This is the third email of this kind I have received within my first month at college. That is three sexual assaults in four weeks.
Calling all photographers and Instagram-lovers: The Collegian is hosting a fall photo contest to choose the best fall photo taken around campus.
In response to No, John Kasich, I don’t want Taylor Swift Tickets
My hand was raised, my body half-way out of my back-row seat, when Gov. John Kasich finally acknowledged me.
With any important question, definitions are important. If we use Encarta Dictionaries, introversion is “the tendency to be self-absorbed and uninterested in other people and the world around”. Culturally, our definition is similar. We commonly refer to introverts as “shy”, “anti-social” or “not team players”. Under that definition, the answer is, “none. Having the lights on just makes people come and visit.”
Recent media coverage of the shootings in Charlestown has sparked debate over the symbolic meaning of the confederate flag. Is it a symbol of racism or a celebration of history? Early July, in response to unrelenting media focus as well as the grace exhibited by family members of the victims of the Charleston shooting, the governor of South Carolina ordered the removal of the Confederate flag from the capitol building.
Richmond students can learn a thing or two from Brené Brown.
This piece was originally published at The Odyssey, and The Collegian received permission to republish it.
Currently before Congress is a piece of legislation known as “Kate’s Law,” which has ignited both a media firestorm and a long-overdue conversation about modern ideas of criminal punishment.
There should not be a foreign language requirement for international students. Understanding why will require a broader look into the role of communication in liberal arts, and the extent to which language limits global engagement.
The process of establishing a phone or Internet connection for a foreigner in India is a more complicated one than I originally thought it would be, and like the other American students I am travelling here with, I was initially unaware of all the necessary documentation requirements. Even with the assistance of our program director, several students had to make multiple visits to the store before their basic cell phones became functional.
As the craziness of the fall semester continues, it’s impossible to attend every academic and social function one might hope. Workloads are increasing, and maintaining a balance between schoolwork and activities you enjoy might seem downright impractical. However, after having spent an evening last week in the Harnett Museum of Art, I would advise that the Annual Student Exhibition is not something students should miss, even as midterms draw nearer. Here’s why.
Thousands of spectators will visit campus Sunday for the Men's Elite Road Race, the premier race of UCI Road World Championships. There are definitely some places that visitors must see while on our amazing campus. From photography to food, University of Richmond has some popular spots that visitors should not miss.
When I tell people that I’m from the United States Virgin Islands, the unequivocal response is, “Wow! That’s so cool! Um, where is that exactly?” usually followed by a statement about how awesome it must have been to grow up in paradise. For many, anywhere in the Caribbean is synonymous with paradise. The irony is that the “United States” tacked on to the beginning of my “Virgin Islands” means that I am a US citizen; I carry a US passport. Yet many US citizens have either never heard of my home. Or if they have heard of the USVI, they have no idea where the islands are located. Still others just link the Caribbean with Jamaica, although there are literally thousands of islands in the Caribbean chain.
Confession: I have been a profiteer of political correctness. During my time as a high school debater, I argued for a wide range of feminist ideologies in debates where they were only loosely tied to the topic. When my opponents would counter by questioning the relevance of my points, I would dismiss their arguments as sexist and silencing. I can vividly recall saying, “How dare you as a white male tell me what I can and can’t say in this debate space? How dare you try to silence me?”
