The first time I cared about American race relations was in November of 2017, during my first year at the University of Richmond, when I read an opinion piece in The New York Times by Yeshiva University law professor Ekow N. Yankah. It questioned whether true friendship was possible between his black children and other children who were white. I should have had the good sense to care sooner, in all honesty. The 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville happened weeks before I moved to campus.
At the core of all lessons in the University of Richmond journalism department is one central goal: to teach storytelling. And so, as students of this fine department, the members of The Collegian Editorial Board have a story to tell. It is the story of a small number of professors who relentlessly pursue the best out of their students. It is the story of how that department’s strengths have created an unsustainable demand. And it is the story of why we feel the department desperately needs a fifth full-time professor position. Read on for our collective stories, and sign the petition for a new professor here.
If the media and cyberspace are anything to go by, everybody seems to be a Nazi these days: proponents of border security, advocates for religious liberties, critics of religious extremism, practicing Christians and regular-old Americans who would otherwise mind their own business.
The proposed Equal Rights Amendment has a storied history in America. It has, at times, been through brutal political wars, and has seen resistance from prominent women’s groups.
Hello, University of Richmond students!
Turmoil, protest and a sea of partisan divide. That is the image most of the country gets of political discourse on college campuses nowadays.
Some of the most polarizing debates of the last few weeks came from an unlikely source – when rapper Kanye West thrust himself into the spotlight with an avalanche of political tweets.
On Tuesday, April 11, I attended the University of Richmond’s annual Take Back the Night event. A recurring theme in the stories of the survivors who were moved to speak was that of virginity.
The setting: political geography class. The assignment: discuss the literature of Ta-Nehisi Coates in groups, responding to questions such as “What would you ask the author?” The issue: a white female classmate, clearly curious on some more nuanced aspects of Coates' life as a black man, stutters, stammers and ultimately silences herself as she tries to qualify her statements in the name of not sounding racist or privileged.
The end of the semester always brings a whirlwind of anxiety for students and faculty alike. Both are caught in different cycles of grade inflation that seem to be getting worse all the time.
Apartment housing deadlines at the University of Richmond need to be revised to provide for more flexibility. As a rising senior at UR, I have noticed that the on-campus apartments are something many students plan for since their freshman year.
On March 22, Karl Rove, former deputy chief of staff under George W. Bush and a prevalent Republican commentator, made a host of thought-provoking remarks to conclude the University of Richmond’s 2017-2018 Sharp Viewpoint series.
I chose to attend the University of Richmond after spending the night with several multicultural students as part of the admission department’s A Night to See, Witness, and Experience Richmond program, more commonly known as ANSWER.
New year, new me, new cultural appropriation?
“If I get the money out of the bank later, can you just buy it for me today?” a boy of about 16 asked his father.
Dear Paul Queally,
Mental illness becoming synonymous with mass shootings is an issue. Not all cases of mental illnesses result in mass shootings or suicide. Although many people have stated the need for more funding and research into helping those with mental illnesses, which is definitely necessary, it should not be the result of the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Ever since the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or MCU, erupted in 2008 with the release of “Iron Man,” audiences have become accustomed to the massive scale that the MCU employs with each of its movies. Moreover, audiences have grown attached and familiar with characters such as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and the Hulk. Each of these characters bring something unique to the MCU, but there isn’t a great deal of diversity with their corresponding films considering each of these characters are white males that receive most of the screen time. Although there is some diversity with characters such as Black Widow, Scarlet Witch and the Falcon, they are primarily used as secondary characters. Until now.
In recent years, the fight to end the stigma around mental illness and to increase access to mental health care for those in need has taken major strides, both nationally and at the University of Richmond. On our campus, students feel increasingly compelled to promote mental health awareness, as demonstrated by the wide range of student-led organizations focusing on mental health. Although this is an accomplishment to be proud of, we must stay cognizant of the unfortunate reality: Mental health stigma remains alive and well.
