People come from all over the world to get caught in the web. We come from vastly different lives to the manicured campus and stone buildings where we will temporarily call home.

Richmond students mentor at inner-city elementary school

Richmond trounces Maine 44-17 at home, Mitchell scores 2 TDs

By Stephen Utz Collegian Reporter Richmond wide receiver Jordan Mitchell knew exactly how to beat Maine's defenders when they started playing 12 yards off him: one quick move to the sideline. That's all it took for him to get open for an 87-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Eric Ward, a play that tied for the second-longest scoring play in school history and was part of a 44-17 Richmond victory against the University of Maine Saturday at home in front of more than 8,000 people. "It was a play we saw all week in practice," Mitchell, a redshirt junior, said of Maine's defensive coverage right before the reception, which led to the game's first touchdown. Mitchell earned a career-high 139 reception yards off four catches and scored two touchdowns.

The penalty kick was awarded midway through the second overtime period after a Quakers defender tackled Richmond junior midfielder Kelsey Rdzanek inside the goal box.

It is these three points that will tentatively form the cornerstone of the school's academic trajectory for the next few years.


Battlefront shifts to the economy

The financial crisis, which the Wall Street Journal described today as the worst economic hit since the early 1930s, is beginning to drastically change the tide of presidential campaigns. Election coverage has shifted away from the controversial VP pick of Governor Sarah Palin, and instead moved toward the candidates' positions on financial markets and back to policies.
