When school let out for the summer last April, the first
thing I did was drive to Barnes and Noble.
For me, summer break is a three-month reading spree. I read about
15 books this summer, ranging from literary classics to fun novels for
the beach. Here are six books reviews from
my summer library.
Pig Roast officially begins at 12 p.m. this Saturday, but preparations for the event are already in progress. The university police department, school administration, student involvement groups and Spider athletics are all involved in the preparations.
The Princeton Review included University of Richmond in its list of "Colleges That Pay You Back: 2015 Edition" this week, making Richmond one of the 200 colleges or universities in this unranked category that is being recognized in terms of academic preparation, affordability and career opportunities.
Warning: Full spoilers for this week's episode below.
“Interstellar” is a new
film from director Christopher Nolan starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne
Hathaway and Jessica Chastain; a five-star movie in my opinion. The film is a crowning achievement in the
sci-fi genre, but one that falls just short of masterpiece status.
“Interstellar” deals with such gigantic ideas such as our place in the cosmos,
while also contemplating the meaning of human life when our planet
cannot sustain us anymore.
University of Richmond already has one rock star alumnus, Lumineers singer Wesley Schultz, but She's a Legend's Alex McDilda, Richmond College '14, and Camden Cantwell, RC '13, may not be far behind. The band's first album, "Flight Patterns and Fistfights," came out last month, and is available on iTunes, Spotify and the band's website.
“Gone Girl” is the new film from auteur director David Fincher. The movie stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike as Nick and Amy Dunne, a seemingly happy all-American couple living in the suburbs outside of St. Louis. Affleck gives the best performance of his career in this movie, as he is perfectly suited to play this role. Pike also gives a transformative performance in her breakthrough role as Amazing Amy. The movie is based on author and screenwriter Gillian Flynn’s bestselling novel of the same name.
The season premiere of “The Walking Dead” aired with a bang on Sunday night. After a long wait over the summer, it was exhilarating to return to our heroes as they faced yet another life-altering crisis. The major arc of the second half of the fourth season involved our group of survivors making their way toward the promise of sanctuary in Terminus, a place that had advertised itself as a safe haven from the calamity of the dead walking the earth. We were treated to a series of standalone episodes devoted to various members of the people who survived the battle with the governor at the prison. These episodes were meant to give us insight into who these people were as opposed to just fodder for the various living and dead enemies around. Some episodes were more successful than others, but on the whole they did a good job of building up to the season's end.
Richmond football will try to avoid back-to-back losses this Saturday when they host Hampton University.
I have been meaning to try Mellow Mushroom for a while now. When it opened in Carytown a few months ago, there was a ton of hype around the restaurant, and it always seemed to be packed. I heard stories of long waits, never being able to get a table, and chilled-out waiters who were enjoyable but not the fastest servers.
The Princeton Review selected University of Richmond for its 2014 list of 75 best value private colleges, praising its combination of academic opportunities of a large research university and advantages of a small liberal arts college.
I've heard tons of good reviews about the relatively new burger place in town called Burger Bach, and finally had a chance to try it this past weekend. Burger Bach (pronounced "batch") is a "New Zealand inspired gastronomical public house," aka nice burger joint right on the edge of Carytown. When we walked into the restaurant on Sunday night, it was very full but did not feel overwhelmingly packed and had a comfortable atmosphere. The space is not very big; it has a bar with seating, one long bar-height table that spans the length of the restaurant and is community type seating (meaning you will be seated right next to other parties) and booths lining the rest of the free wall space in the restaurant. It is not your typical layout; it almost promotes a sense of community.
Family weekend is one of the best weekends of the year for all of us foodies. Parents from all parts of the country come to see their dear children they miss so much. And since they miss us so much they are willing to spend some dough. Family weekend is a great opportunity to try all of the restaurants in Richmond you have always wanted to try but cannot afford on a college budget. I made my family reservations at Pearl's Raw Bar Friday night.
