Why am I already thinking about summer? Gloves are still a nearly everyday accessory for me, but what I'll be doing during the muggy months ahead is already weighing on my mind. Summertime used to mean no school, sleeping in and cool camps, but for a University of Richmond student, it's resume-building time.
Winter's in the air and on the ground at University of Richmond, but snow isn't the only white stuff coating campus these days. You could lick the sidewalks to find out, but I'll save you the trouble.
You will find two window decals on my Nissan Versa. One is a University of Richmond shield. The other is Berklee College of Music's logo. Even though I was at Berklee for only one semester and this is my third year at UR, I somehow feel more loyal to the first school I attended. Here's the story of my switch.
What are you doing this weekend? If your response is anything other than "going on an extended trip outside the Commonwealth," and especially if your plan is "umm... lodges?" then I have an excellent answer to that question. This Saturday, from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m., the Cultural Advisors Alternatives program is hosting a Winter Masquerade Ball in the International Center Commons. As is the case with all CA Alternatives, this event is sure to thrill and amaze students from across the spectrum. Just in case you need any added incentive to attend a party that involves masks, balloons and a DJ, I hope this list of reasons it will be the best will cinch the deal.
This is a story of injustice, death and the ecological consequences of each. In honor of a majestic creature that was killed in my own backyard, I would like to warn you of our attitude toward the state of our planet.
Next Tuesday, more than 17 million Americans, or 5 percent of the U.S. population, will have elections for their state governments. The elections in New Jersey and Virginia have gained outsized national attention over the years because of their unusual timing: These are the only two states to hold their elections the year after the presidential election. Thus political observers often watch them as referenda on the president, and reporters and pundits crashing from the buzz of the election flock to cover them. Money from across the country has funded thousands of hours of omnipresent campaign ads that seemed to start on New Year's Day.
Last Friday afternoon, I was hacking away at Chinese privet in a national park with a lopper, a cutting tool. This deciduous shrub has taken over large swaths of the Rural Plains unit of Richmond National Battlefield Park. This isn't a normal way to start the weekend, even for a Richmond student, but when you're studying invasive species removal, the best way to learn is to do it.
Social media confounds me. LinkedIn, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Foursquare, Google Plus+, Meetup, Flickr, Wordpress, MySpace, StumbleUpon and Facebook. I have accounts on less than half of that list, but I really only know how to use one: Facebook. And in today's job market, I'm told that's a huge, awful, unemployable problem.
Who went to the Richmond Street Art Festival? Wasn't that so cool?
Could it happen today? A young man is deceived, beaten within inches of his life with a gun and left for dead, tied to a fence post in the middle of nowhere. He stays there for 18 hours before being found, barely recognizable with a bashed-in skull and blood covering his entire face.
Shelley Goldsmith was an exceptionally normal college kid. An honors student with a full merit scholarship to nearby University of Virginia, she spent her time volunteering, hiking, sailing, playing tennis and hanging with her friends and Alpha Phi sisters.
In June of 2009, President Obama went to Cairo to give his first major foreign policy address as president of the United States. In it, the president outlined his administration's agenda for dealing diplomatically with other nations, confronting terrorism, and "restoring" America's standing in the world.
Academic stress doesn't bring out the best in any of us. Some retreat to the library for 24+ hours, subsisting off 8:15 bagels and red eyes (double shot, iced, with skim). Some plan ahead, only to spend the morning leading up to the exam or deadline freaking out that they didn't study hard enough, or forgot an essential detail.
So, friends, the time is almost upon us again. The one day every year when sundresses, lodges and cooked meat coexist (semi) peacefully. If you happen to live your life mainly within the "Richmond bubble," as so many of us do, Pig Roast might as well be a national holiday.
"It's a marathon, not a sprint," is such a common phrase for many of us, whether it's about your four years in college, trying to lose weight or day drinking. It's also a concept I've never really been successful at grasping. I think this stems from the fact that I've played soccer and field hockey all my life and never tried to run any distance longer than a 5K.
Thank you. By reading this article you are not only liking or hating my attempts at writing, but you are supporting student journalism. For almost 100 years, this newspaper has nurtured new generations of editors and reporters at the University of Richmond.
On Tuesday night CNN taped a post-State of the Union show on campus.
I am the father of a Class of 2010 alumna. My daughter loved her time at Richmond. She graduated summa cum laude, was a three-year officer on the Honor Council and became editor of The Collegian her senior year. She was a journalism major and women's studies minor.
