Every March, the country is consumed by an obsession with the basketball tournament we’ve come to know as March Madness. As someone who is mildly obsessed with basketball year round, I usually find the exponential increase in attention fun and refreshing. Over the past few years, however, I've began to notice a disturbing trend.

Last Wednesday, Spiders for Life held a display that consisted of several features that the group has become associated with in recent years – large displays, various brochures and flyers.
Imagine a teapot full of boiling water that is placed on a back burner to cool down. What happens when the water is left on the back burner for too long?
10 original and not-so-original ways to stay sane during finals
No matter what it is, it is your civic responsibility to develop an informed opinion about the threat of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, and what the United States should do about it. As our generation begins to enter the “real world,” the decisions being made about ISIS today will affect us for years to come. I am not telling you what to think about ISIS, I am saying to think about ISIS. If you are ill-informed now, then you will have no right to complain about the outcome in the future. Our generation is one that cannot be silenced, and being informed is the first step.
What does a group of people do when a figure that has been given the sole responsibility to protect them does just the opposite? What happens when an authority figure abuses his/her power, and the trust between the people and those who protect them is broken? Normally, the answer would be for the community to voice their concerns and call for the removal of said authority figure. This should indeed be the case, but throw into this mix a history of mistreatment and racial issues and you have the case in Ferguson, Missouri.
This week, Taylor Swift made the bold move to remove all her songs from Spotify, a platform that allows users to pay a minimal monthly fee for the advertisement-free streaming music service. Other frustrated artists are looking to follow Swift’s lead. Such a strategy might be problematic.
The U.S. added yet another mark to its list of mass-shootings at the end of October when Jaylen Fryberg opened fire in his high school cafeteria in a small town in Washington state. The freshman killed a fellow classmate and injured four others before taking his own life.
Sexual assault has led to a man-hating mission. Society has grown to view men as the perpetrators and women as the victims, which results in a very strict labeling system that does not accurately depict reality and does not help ameliorate this grave societal issue.
My name is Ellie, and I am a junior at UR studying journalism but am currently studying abroad in Sydney, Australia for the fall semester. Welcome to my blog! Here I hope to offer some insights into studying abroad, my life in Australia and maybe just some general life tips I have picked up while living in another country.
Do you have a lot of things to say about current events, school happenings and other controversial issues? Do you enjoy writing and getting your voice heard? Are you humorous and interested in your own column? Or do you have other great ideas of your own? Then you might be the perfect candidate to join the Opinions team for The Collegian.
This is my last Opinions column as a member of The Collegian staff. I wanted to make it memorable for our readers, so, as I do most Wednesdays, I sat down yesterday to think of something new and groundbreaking to be mad about. And, as happens most Wednesdays, I couldn't think of anything.
For the past week, the University of Richmond community has dealt with the comments of Paul Queally. I won't bother to repeat them again here, and I encourage those reading this who don't know what I'm talking about to read the enlightening article published last week by author Kevin Roose in New York Magazine, or check out his newly released book "Young Money."
This Wednesday I stumbled upon an article in Richmond's Style Weekly magazine covering the Feb. 8 convention of the Libertarian Party of Virginia. According to the article's author Tom Nash, this convention was the biggest and most important for Virginia Libertarians for quite some while. Given the recent relative success of the party's gubernatorial candidate Robert Sarvis (who made his mark by running a seemingly honest, intellectual campaign and winning 6.5 percent of the vote), Nash contends that the party hopes to maintain this momentum by having as many Libertarians as possible on the upcoming ballots.
Why am I already thinking about summer? Gloves are still a nearly everyday accessory for me, but what I'll be doing during the muggy months ahead is already weighing on my mind. Summertime used to mean no school, sleeping in and cool camps, but for a University of Richmond student, it's resume-building time.
Winter's in the air and on the ground at University of Richmond, but snow isn't the only white stuff coating campus these days. You could lick the sidewalks to find out, but I'll save you the trouble.
Sometimes it can be a little bit of a downer to return to school after a long, hot four months of working at that same summer job you've had since high school, traveling, name-dropping your fancy summer internship, spending time catching up with old friends and family, or whatever other activity you were engaged in that didn't involve homework or cafeteria food (sorry D-Hall, you're really tasty and DARN do you know how to make a panini, but you're still a cafeteria).
Does your internet seem slower than ever? Do you find yourself crying at the smallest provocation? Have you hugged your adviser more than usual this past week? If yes, then you're in the midst of registration blues.
