WDCE reinventing itself

By Michael Gaynor Collegian Reporter If you've been tuning in to the campus radio station recently, you're most likely getting a speaker full of static instead of the usual indie-rock riffs and underground hip-hop rhythms. That's because after 30 years of broadcasting from the third floor of the Tyler Haynes Commons, WDCE 90.1 FM is moving to a new location pocketed in the North Court basement. The move is the result of continued renovation to the Commons.

Lakeview provides new learning environment

The benefits and distinctiveness of the new Living and Learning programs are coming into view after five weeks of school have put them to the test in and out of the classroom. "The strength of Living and Learning is that it just brings people that are different together that would normally be fragmented," said sophomore Dan Colosimo, a member of the Civic Engagement House. There are five year-long Living and Learning programs that comprise 16 students each, including a resident adviser -- Civic Engagement House, Spanish in the Community, Political Campaign House, Earth Lodge, and Life, Literature and Art. Each program includes a class related to the house theme as well as academic and social activities.

Most students favor Obama, new Collegian survey shows

Nearly 52 percent of University of Richmond undergraduate students favor Barack Obama over John McCain for president, while the number of students who identify as Democrats, Republicans and Independents is virtually the same, according to a survey conducted last week by The Collegian. Obama carried a 20 percent advantage over McCain in the survey, results that are comparable to the 20 percent advantage Obama has among 18- to 25-year-olds in Virginia. Obama and McCain are tied in state polls, just one month outside of the election, but the latest survey from The Associated Press, released yesterday, showed Obama had surged 7 percentage points ahead of McCain nationally.
