With all of the news and noise emanating from Washington, D.C., it can be easy to miss a big event happening in our own backyard: the 2017 Virginia Governor’s Election. With less than two weeks until Election Day, the time is now for University of Richmond students to pay attention to the race that pits Republican Ed Gillespie against Democrat Ralph Northam.
Universities around the world are taking steps to curb harmful greenhouse gas emissions. The University of Richmond ought to follow suit if it hopes to maintain our moral integrity as an academic institution during the climate crisis.
October is LGBTQ History Month. More specifically, today is National Coming Out Day.
The most glaring threat to the nature of American democracy is not the man that sits behind the desk in the Oval Office – it’s the sport that holds a special place in that man’s heart: golf.

New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is wrapping up, and now it's crucial to take a step back and consider the fashion industry with a critical eye. Many of us, myself included, anticipate the new seasonal trends — even if we wouldn’t wear them on a daily basis. Fashion is art and the designers are artists. It’s fascinating to watch how their creations influence the average American.
Every year I dread 9/11. It’s a dark day that I hate to think about, much less speak about. It’s a national day of remembrance, but all I remember is the lost of a loved one — and the loss of my innocence. When I was a child I was ambushed with videos of the towers crumbling apart; the towers in which my loved ones worked.
Over the last several months, political division has scorched the United States.
The national student debt crisis is at an all-time high, and Virginia is no exception to this trend. On Wednesday, Aug. 30, at 3 p.m., Tom Perriello, former U.S. representative and current CEO of the Win Virginia Democratic political action committee; Maggie Thompson, executive director of Generation Progress; and two Democratic student leaders from Virginia universities convened on a press call. The point of the call was to discuss the national student debt crisis in relation to the platforms of Virginia governor candidates: Democrat Ralph Northam and Republican Ed Gillespie. Those on the phone elaborated on both politicians’ stances in regard to funding higher education, with Northam clearly leading in favor as champion for students and families.

Everywhere you look, walls are going up.

People often ask me what my definition of the word "feminism" is, as though it could have more than one. The definition of feminism, according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, is the theory of political, economic and social equality of the sexes.

Journalists are a vital part of our citizenry. It’s journalists, after all, who provide the public with the information required to make intelligent decisions. Most of us, I’d wager, have neither the time nor means nor wherewithal to get all of our own news firsthand. Although I’m an ardent Apple loyalist, I imagine that I would have appreciated hearing about the exploding Samsung Note 7 epidemic from a news source before I had crispy fingers and had suddenly become hard of hearing.
At only 20 years old, I find it amusing that I can already say that I remember how different life was when I was younger. I got my first cell phone in ninth grade, and I still remember the days when my family all had a RAZR.
