Third Eye Blind gives intimate performance in Richmond

Third Eye Blind played a sold-out concert to more than 1,400 people at Toad's Place Monday night with music that spanned a decade, with hits from the '90s and unreleased songs from their next album. The band's 10-day tour includes shows at venues that are smaller than usual.


For Abby Ayers, public life means keeping some things close to heart

Among the events the Ayerses attend each week, a contest that Abby and Ed Ayers participated in struck the new university president as a symbol of their experiences since they had lived in Richmond.

CDC could relocate to Tyler Haynes Commons, officials say

University of Richmond officials are mulling over the idea of relocating the Career Development Center to a more central location on campus, a move that would afford additional space for student job interviews, other career services and increase accessibility. In a statement released to The Collegian late last night, Brian Eckert, director of the university's media and public relations, said the CDC would remain at its current location at least for the remainder of the academic year, which ran counter to widespread rumors stating that construction in the Tyler Haynes Commons ? where the CDC was to be located ? would begin as early next week. Plans for moving the CDC to the Commons have been discussed but have yet to be approved, the statement said.

Men's basketball team hopes to rebound from poor 2006 season

Seldom has a proven system for success been ridiculed as much as the Princeton Offense was in and around the Robins Center last winter. During his second season as University of Richmond head basketball coach, Chris Mooney found himself with a young team that did not believe in an offensive system that has made its way around the college game for nearly 50 years.


Envisioning my return

This Homecoming Weekend promises to be as strange as it will be memorable, because those who were my peers just a few months ago will be returning to campus as members of that distant and ever-growing faction that is "alumni." And sadly, if all goes according to plan, I will reluctantly be initiated into that same group about six months from now.


How far have we really come?

Dear Administration, Faculty, Staff and Students: I am writing this letter to address some concerns about an incident which occurred this past weekend, which I feel that we, as members of the University of Richmond community, need to address as a collective.


The color of money

MADRID ? After being here for about 2 1/2 months, there are very few things that still trigger that little feeling of homesickness from time to time.
