This year’s International Education week is focused on Asia with an emphasis on East Asia. It is a spotlight on a region that is economically, politically, socially and culturally significant to the world, but does not generally enjoy a large presence in the University of Richmond's curriculum, programming or campus life.

The end of the school year comes with a bag of mixed emotions. As students, we all have different feelings when summer break is upon us. For seniors, the spectrum of emotions is even larger.
