Come Together

As my tenure at the University of Richmond draws to a close, I've noticed a growing feeling of nostalgia and togetherness among members of the senior class.


Opinion

Straight out of Compton (Vol. 4)

What was last Friday? It was "the night the lodge went wrong." For some, the complications of a lodge being shut down ruined the night, but I had ended up experiencing the joy of random fun.

Opinion

Straight Out of Compton (Vol. 3)

As I thought about things I wanted to write about this week, I was struck by how most "opinions" people (including myself, not going to lie) tend to revolve around complaining about something.

Letter from the closet

Editor's Note: The Collegian reserves the right to publish anonymous submissions only if an author's well-being is at stake and the article's message is deemed worthy of publication. As a closeted non-heterosexual male at the University of Richmond, my experiences on this campus are drastically different than those of heterosexuals. People stay in the closet for many reasons -- family, religious, financial, profession, social and safety.


Opinion

What do I owe?

It's spring semester, and that means we in the senior class are being harassed on an almost daily basis for donations to the class gift fund.


Opinion

Sunday morning sillies

I was going to write a grand exposition on the Meaning of Life for my first column as your new assistant opinion editor, but instead I've decided to talk about the cattle auction channel. Have you seen this thing?

Drinking survey reveals students' habits

A drinking survey from the Richmond College Dean's Office revealed that students' drinking habits do not usually affect their academics. Dan Fabian, chemical health coordinator and associate dean of Richmond College, created the survey and sent it in an e-mail to undergraduate students on Nov.


Opinion

Richmond students are not classy

It's true that the recent frat e-mail was disgustingly prejudiced.

A Day in the Life: A Campus Activities Desk Worker

If the University of Richmond had a Gossip Girl, it would probably be Charlie Kline. Not only does he know what movie is playing at The Pier, who is looking for a babysitter and where apartments are for rent, he also may know what you did last weekend, where you bought your shirt and why you broke up. Tucked behind the blue counter of the Campus Activities Desk, located at the valve of our campus' aortic Commons, Charlie is unintentionally the C of many A and B conversations. "I hear some random, random bits of conversation," he said.

A Day in the Life: A Pier Cashier

"Who's next?" she calls as you step up to the plate. "I'll have the turkey sandwich with BBQ Baked Lays, two strawberry yogurts, a veggie tray, a large Powerade and an oatmeal cup," you say as she punches the color-coded buttons, the balance rises, the Spidercard is swiped (twice) with a "How you doin' today?" punctuated by the one-handed wave of a paper bag, and before you can answer, she's off... "Did she get all that?" you wonder as you watch her glide through the aluminum galley.
