Emily Arches is a sophomore from Baltimore, Maryland, majoring in business administration with a concentration in finance. Arches is the president of the equestrian team, a writing consultant and a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. She started riding horses in first grade and said it would have felt foreign to go to college and not ride. The equestrian team comprises 17 members, all female, but anyone can join. This past weekend, University of Richmond came in first place at a show at Randolph-Macon College. Arches said she felt accomplished when the team performed well. It is difficult to manage because they all have different backgrounds and varying riding experience, but the job is really rewarding, she said. Arches said her biggest challenge had been keeping team spirits high and promoting team unity because riding was an individual sport. It is challenging to be the middle man between riders and coaches, to keep high levels of respect and to make sure each rider improves. Arches wants people to know that the equestrian team has increased its prevalence and success a lot in the past three years. Richmond’s team is strong in its region, and the team is very competitive. Something you don’t know about Arches? She can’t swim. Here’s a glimpse into a day in her life:
One hundred years ago, Westhampton Lake was much more than a Facebook cover photo. It served as both a physical and metaphorical divide between Richmond men and Westhampton women. Although classes have since integrated and students can live on either side of the lake, the roots of gender separation still remain in what is known as the coordinate college system. Two deaneries, two student governments and two mission statements coexist under one university, though debate over the validity of the system divides the campus community.
Tucked next to the intramural fields, University of Richmond’s ropes course hosts a variety of groups for challenging, team-building events.
Abigail Evangeliste is a sophomore from Donegal, Pennsylvania, majoring in business economics. Evangeliste came to University of Richmond to join the Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps. She has wanted to be an officer in the United States Army since she was 14 years old. Evangeliste’s schedule is different from most other students, except maybe athletes, she said. Time management is important for her to stay on top of school work, extracurricular activities and ROTC. In addition to physical training, ROTC students learn map reading, land navigation, how to lead a squad or platoon, relevant medical information and how to prepare for certain situations. Evangeliste’s biggest challenge has been feeling as if there is not enough time to do everything. She said she thought she could be doing better academically if not for her other responsibilities, which could be frustrating at times and hard to balance. Evangeliste wants people to know that ROTC is not “super hardcore.” It is manageable but takes commitment, and it is more serious and pre-professional than some other clubs. Something you don’t know about Evangeliste? Her mom is from Thailand. Here’s a glimpse into a day in her life:
Jared Ingersoll is a senior from Harrison City, Pennsylvania, majoring in chemistry. He plays on University of Richmond’s ice hockey team and also works for UREMS. Ingersoll became an EMT because he was interested in health care as a freshman. He has worked on UREMS for three years and plans to apply to medical schools in June. Ingersoll’s favorite aspect of the job is how unexpected it can be. Every call is different, and his job is never boring. His biggest challenge is balancing school work and other activities alongside being an EMT, but it’s manageable and forces him to work on his time management skills. Ingersoll wants other students to know that alcohol-related calls are only 30 percent of what UREMS responds to. A lot of calls are serious and can range from chest pain or an allergic reaction to cardiac arrest. Something you don’t know about Ingersoll? He worked as a customer service agent for Spirit Airlines a few summers ago, and “basically got paid to be yelled at by upset customers.” Here’s a glimpse into a day in his life:
Issues regarding campus sexual assault have routinely garnered national attention throughout this year, as everything from White House plans to investigate Title IX violations, to mattress-carrying advocacy efforts by undergraduate sexual assault survivors, to last week’s harrowing story of a gang-rape at UVA, have thrown the national spotlight onto how colleges confront this widespread scourge.

Alumni, staff and faculty may also reserve rooms for friends and family, and parents of students enrolled at the university may reserve rooms as well.
