Last week's front-page story of The Collegian raised some troubling questions, to say the least. It was a shock to me to find out that this university's law school had not only admitted a registered sex offender who had plead guilty to aggravated sexual battery, but had given him its most prestigious scholarship.
Governor of Virginia will be Terry McAuliffe's first elective office. The former chairman of the Democratic National Committee gained stature through his work leading two Clinton presidential campaigns: Bill's in 1996 and Hillary's in 2008. He previously ran for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in 2009, but lost to state Sen. Creigh Deeds.
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.
In the first seconds of "reasons to be pretty," the audience is confronted with an emotional, fiery, invective-laden fight surpassing anything I've seen on reality TV. One drunken comment sets off a dramatic sequence that causes serious turmoil with a constant hint of absurdity.
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.
Paul G. Nahon, III, a former University of Richmond student and accomplished tennis player, died Aug. 15 while hiking in Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park.
Of all the responses to this week's tragedy in Boston, perhaps the most cogent came from The Onion, a cerebrally satirical news publication. The article, titled "This What World Like Now," is written with mock quotes from people resigned to living "in a time and place where expecting the worst and feeling slightly afraid of what awful thing will happen next is the default state of being."
The University of Richmond women's lacrosse team prevailed over St. Bonaventure University April 14 at Robins Stadium.
Live Aid, Farm Aid, Live 8, NetAid and Live Earth. Since George Harrison and Ravi Shankar popularized the concept with the Concert for Bangladesh in 1971, benefit concerts have become regularly occurring, star-studded events with a formulaic mix of aging rock stars grasping for relevance and world leaders grasping for exposure.
Does your internet seem slower than ever? Do you find yourself crying at the smallest provocation? Have you hugged your adviser more than usual this past week? If yes, then you're in the midst of registration blues.
With a string of singles wins, the University of Richmond men's tennis team overcame doubles defeats to beat George Mason University April 3.

"The Feminine Mystique," the novel that launched a generation of feminists, was published 50 years ago last week.
While preparing my last issue as opinion editor of The Collegian, I realized a few things.
The University of Richmond women's lacrosse team dominated American University on Feb. 27 to pick up its first win of the season.
The University Bookstore fell victim this month to another incident of textbook theft by heroin addicts.
A busy schedule is routine for two members of the University of Richmond's women's swim and dive team who won conference honors this month, particularly as the team prepares to go to its conference championships this week.
