The national student debt crisis is at an all-time high, and Virginia is no exception to this trend. On Wednesday, Aug. 30, at 3 p.m., Tom Perriello, former U.S. representative and current CEO of the Win Virginia Democratic political action committee; Maggie Thompson, executive director of Generation Progress; and two Democratic student leaders from Virginia universities convened on a press call. The point of the call was to discuss the national student debt crisis in relation to the platforms of Virginia governor candidates: Democrat Ralph Northam and Republican Ed Gillespie. Those on the phone elaborated on both politicians’ stances in regard to funding higher education, with Northam clearly leading in favor as champion for students and families.
On behalf of the entire Collegian staff, welcome back to all those returning to campus, and a special welcome to those entering for the first time.
Dear Fellow Seniors,
I hear it all the time at University of Richmond. Every week, every semester, from friends and peers.
No numbers, figures or trends, but real people.
The Alice Haynes room was packed. Students gathered to participate in the viewing of "The Hunting Ground," a recent documentary dealing with the issue of sexual assault on college campuses. The event was a part of the *WILL lecture series on justice. In watching the film, students engaged in a moment of solidarity, and are certainly still looking for answers to this ongoing issue.
Nothing excites college students more than a snow day.

If you’ve been keeping up with recent news, then you probably heard about the Mexican drug lord “El Chapo,” who was recently apprehended in a military raid. The raid, which can be viewed online, was conducted by the Mexican military, purportedly under the supervision of American law-enforcement agencies.

We go to the University of Richmond, a school people call the hidden ivy of the South, and with that comes pressure. Pressure to do well in school, pressure to make a name for yourself at a young age, and generally just a lot of pressure to succeed. However, there are times in life when something happens and you realize that it’s not one thing that determines your life, but everything. Life is made of infinite moments that can take you anywhere, and it is better to try and fail than to have never tried at all.
It is easy for the majority to tell the minority not to question or take offense to the status quo.
Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, Sandy Hook, Charleston and most recently Umpqua are the sites of some of the most infamous mass shootings in American history. Year by year, this list continues to grow. When will it stop?

It doesn’t take much more than a quick Google search to find instances of college campuses reacting poorly to students in mental health crises. Mentally ill students are often demonized, blamed and condemned for their health problems, and sometimes end up kicked off campuses.
College campuses no longer champion intellectual space. Instead, they fixate on providing conflict-free, ideologically-homogenous “safe spaces” that are quickly becoming more dystopian than utopian.
Recently, several American peers and I visited two elementary schools in Bangalore, India for a class about primary education. We entered a private school to a warm welcome from one hundred young students, dressed in pristine white uniforms. This school is privately run, and the headmaster spoke proudly about the school’s academic and extracurricular offerings. I watched as the students performed prepared songs and recited facts about important figures in Indian history. The students from this school are by no means wealthy, especially by American standards, and the school compensates when parents cannot afford the fees, but their educational program is nevertheless far stronger than most in the country.
With the race for presidential nominations underway, terms used to categorize people of Spanish-speaking descent have been tossed about freely in both the media and during conversations with the candidates themselves. Is this new or surprising to anyone? It shouldn’t be.
Prominently featured on my desktop background is my favorite word, sonder (n.). By some accounts (e.g. Merriam-Webster), sonder is not a word with enough validity to exist in the dictionary, and in this vein, Microsoft Word is boldly underlining it in red as I type this article. Fortunately for me, The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows believes that it merits an entry and defines the word as, “the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own.”
Fall is finally here! From the colorful leaves to the chilly temperatures to the anticipation of the holiday season, this time of year brings out the best in everyone -- fashion included.
