Two professors at the University of Richmond have been named among the nation's 300 best professors in a guidebook published by The Princeton Review and RateMyProfessors.com.
"Everybody on the mainland thinks that because I live in Hawaii, I live in Paradise ... Are they insane?"
While spending six months in a foreign country without the radio blasting out the latest pop hits and Bruno Mars-driven rap songs, I had to start listening to the local music to get some fresh songs to ride the tube with. Because I was in England, I already knew a fair amount of bands such as Coldplay and Mumford and Sons from their breakout hits in America. It was the tips from my flatmates that allowed me to bring back my iPod filled with new songs and artists who I had never heard of, and who are frankly better than most of the stuff that goes mainstream here. I listen to every type of music, but I am going to go ahead and throw out a few artists and songs that you may never have heard of, in hopes of getting some new fans for the bands.
With the start of 2012 only a few hours away, The Collegian took a look back at the top 11 stories of 2011. Here's how we ranked them:
Angela's is cute. No other word describes it better. I give it high marks for being close to campus (it's about 5 minutes away), but it is definitely a hole-in-the-wall restaurant. The interior is cozy, and familiar, and is filled mostly by families and old friends catching up. From what I've heard, Angela's has a strong camp following of devoted customers that don't seem to mind the sometimes brusque wait staff.
Brunch. It's classier than lunch, but still being served when you wake up. And it was just what two lovely ladies and I were craving the Saturday morning of Halloweekend. The perfect restaurant for quenching our hankerings was 3 Monkeys.
Take a turn off the busy and eclectic W. Cary Street in Carytown and you'll find Stuzzi Pizzeria nestled among a quieter neighborhood of bungalows. Even though I visited on a Sunday night, Stuzzi exuded a generally buzzing atmosphere of chaos that made dining there exciting and a little frustrating. The restaurant was clearly understaffed and the host left us waiting for a while as he and the bartender tried to sort out the delivery and carryout pizzas, so my friend and I decided to eat at the bar rather than wait for a table.
A lively Cellar crowd laughs as Wade Downey explains his opening song was written for his two-year-old son, Finn, and the eventual break-ups he'll go through later in life.
Since this will probably be the last movie review I write for "The Collegian," I'm deliriously relieved that I get to tell you about a very good film. I'm talking, of course, about "50/50."
I'm starting to wonder if Hollywood film reviewers are being paid to say that movies this year are decent when they're actually so boring it's almost criminal that someone funded the making of them. Or maybe these critics are seeing director's cut versions of the films, since most reviewers watch films together in separate theaters from the general public. Either way, "Moneyball" is god-awfully boring and anyone who says differently is probably a fan of Major League Baseball.
The movie "Drive" follows a character who is based on a superman-type persona, barely speaks and is also as awkward as Ryan Gosling's character in "Lars and the Real Girl." Sure, he's a stoic superhero with a secret identity but he's also awkward, makes strange decisions and gets involved with really obvious crime kingpins. And instead of flying faster than a speeding bullet and leaping tall buildings, his superpowers include driving getaway cars and invisibility.
Do not touch your face while you read this. Seriously. You're doing it now, aren't you? Well, congratulations. You're going to die of pig-bat flu and then coroners are going to find green sludge in your brain during your autopsy and everyone you have ever stared at is going to die too. Are you proud of yourself?
It sometimes feels like once you've been to one Mexican restaurant, you've been to them all. But that's not how I feel about Plaza Azteca on Broad Street. With a fun atmosphere, good drinks and huge portions, Plaza Azteca falls just a notch above other Mexican restaurants, including everyone's freshman year favorite, Mexico's.
Mezzanine 3433 gets its name from its address on Cary Street, a prime location for those looking to meander around the off-beat neighborhood before or after a good meal. Mezzanine had been on my list of places to eat before I graduate since I heard about their bloody mary bar at brunch. Conveniently located with an ever-changing menu of delicious dishes, Mezzanine proved to be a lovely dinner destination.
Every movie you've ever seen exists in its own universe. "Star Wars," "Steel Magnolias," "Pirates of the Caribbean" - they all created a world in which they could reasonably function.
The Princeton Review has named the University of Richmond among the 13 colleges with the best financial aid.
Turn up your speakers to blare Mute Math's "Typical" and you'll get anything but that.
Every city has a few of those institutional restaurants that keep the locals coming back while still attracting tourists from all over. Millie's Diner is one of those places. You come for the reputation, get hooked on the mimosas and stay for the delicious and creative brunch.
