There is a basic calculation involved in taking out a student loan: (1) borrow money to pay for school, (2) get a better job with your degree, and (3) with some of the largesse from that awesome job, pay back your student loans. It’s called leveraging your investment. Unfortunately, that calculation too often breaks down and leaves student borrowers unable to pay down a crippling debt load.
Fall is one of the best times of the year. The weather is ideal, the autumn colors make for picturesque landscapes, and the holiday seasons are just around the corner. Lucky for you, there is no shortage of fun activities in the Richmond area during the fall season. Whether you enjoy looking at art, trying new food and craft beer, or getting active and being surrounded by nature, there is something for you to enjoy.
Halloween at Richmond is a great weekend-long event. That being said, getting several costume ideas ready can be tough work. So, if you don’t want to spend countless hours crafting a costume or coming up with coordinating ideas with all your friends, here is the guide of no-effort costumes that you could put together with just an extra large white tee shirt; They even sell them in four packs so you will have enough to use a different one each night.

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.”
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.
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?”
The transportation industry has been floored by how quickly the smartphone application “Uber” has become integrated into the lives of young adults. Uber is best characterized as a part-taxi, part-personal driver service. Upon request, the app immediately pairs users with a temporary chauffeur close to them, while simultaneously changing the Uber driver’s status to “en route.” Uber's site boasts of the service’s ability to “bring people and their city closer”, and it hasn’t disappointed for University of Richmond students.
We are currently in a period of triumph for Tom Brady and his loyal fans.
With the “Black Lives Matter” movement becoming increasingly prevalent in our political discourse, procedural due process and racial inequity are being discussed more readily. The cascade of eyebrow raising events that precipitated the movement (i.e. the deaths of Sandra Bland, Walter Scott, Eric Garner, and of course Michael Brown) has called into question what specifically constitutes a justifiable use of force. However, there is an issue that has largely been glossed over and seems to teem with racial disparity– the death penalty.
The Westhampton College Government Association (WCGA) is so excited to hit the ground running in the 2015-2016 school year. We are happy to share some of our goals with you and also show you how you can get involved!
1. Your health
I have enjoyed meeting and interacting with many of you thus far. Something unique that I am noticing about the Class of 2019, is the amount of confidence you carry when navigating the campus. That is an excellent characteristic. For this article, we are going to be shining a spotlight on the fantastic leadership team that we’ve got here in the Richmond College Student Government Association. Over the summer, the RCSGA leadership was asked two questions and freely answered based on their unique, individual perspectives. It is our hope that you find this advice helpful, both today, as you begin your first day of classes at college, and throughout the rest of your academic career.
Welcome new Spiders! We are so excited to have you on campus for your first semester. Here are some helpful hints we wish we knew about Richmond when we were on your position:
How much will a paper University of Richmond diploma be worth to you? A degree from the University of Richmond is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, but what is the value of the actual piece of paper the class of 2015 will receive on graduation day? If you add up the monetary costs of a diploma design, printer ink and paper, the price comes out to around eleven cents.
In the next few weeks, the nation's college students will take part in the uphill battle known as finals week. Finals are a test of the cumulative knowledge accrued in a semester of blood, sweat and tears. To some they are a very real threat to a successful future, but to many they are the last leg in the marathon that is the semesterly workload.
