The fifth game for Virginia women’s lacrosse ended in dominant fashion against Cornell, as the No. 15 Cavaliers (4-1, 0-1 ACC) defeated the Big Red (2-1, 0-0 Ivy League) 20-11 Sunday afternoon. Virginia held down the gas pedal offensively all game, earning them a much deserved bounce-back win after Friday’s overtime defeat to North Carolina.
Starting Feb. 26, University students will be voting on Referendum 1 which calls upon the University to submit to an audit of its investments and to subsequently divest from “companies engaging in or profiting from the State of Israel’s apartheid regime and acute violence against Palestinians.” The narrative surrounding this referendum has been exceptionally polarizing -– with U.Va. Apartheid Divest using the slogan “Divest from Death.” This seems to imply that we either vote yes, or we must support the deaths of almost 30,000 Palestinians. We can, and should, be outraged by what is happening in Gaza, and we can, and should, be calling for Israel to be held accountable for their war crimes. But the referendum’s simplifications do not do justice to the incredibly complicated nature of this conflict or allow for the possibility of a mutual solution — divestment is a tool for abolition, not a constructive solution.
Last semester, I compiled a list of the top 10 worst phrases to hear in class.

If you ever see me around Grounds, you probably don’t see me for long. I’m often zooming on my blue electric beach cruiser bike, riding from one place to another. You may have even had the displeasure of hearing me sing off-tune to the music in my headphones as I ride on by. I've been biking around Grounds for about two years now, and I've learned a lot about bike maintenance, bike accessibility and how steep that hill in front of Clark Library really is. But after all this time, the most important lesson I’ve learned from biking is how to be more mindful.

The completion of Alderman Library’s renovation project has revived library life at the University. Its proximity to the Corner and Central Grounds, the opening of Saxby’s cafe and five floors of beautiful study spaces have combined to create an attractive hub for the University community. Now that Alderman has come to the forefront of student life, students must reconsider Edwin Alderman’s legacy. Alderman was a staunch eugenicist — a proponent of an immoral pseudoscience that argued for the genetic superiority of white Europeans over non-white people. The very goal, and reality, of eugenics was to enact concrete legislation that enshrined these racist conclusions. The library, as his living legacy, forces students to pay homage to this evil ideology every time we say the name. In memorializing Alderman’s name, we are upholding the values to which we no longer institutionally ascribe. Alderman library opened in 1938, a time when his name perhaps did reflect ideals of the time. But we have moved past those values. Our namesakes should reflect the values of our time. Therefore, the library must be renamed, not only to properly honor the University’s history, but also to reflect our changing values.

With Class of 2028 acceptances starting to roll out, I couldn’t help but feel a bit nostalgic. I vividly remember my acceptance to the University three years ago, and the excitement and joy that accompanied my letter of admission. Halfway through my third year, I also now realize how little I knew about the realities of day-to-day college life. Here are some thoughts and reflections about my time at the University so far.

With the start of new classes, there is no better time to make sure you are setting yourself up for the best semester yet. Here are some simple yet effective ways to let your mind, body and social life prosper this spring.
I’m 22 years old. I can vote, drink, sign contracts and drive — although the driving part is debatable. In all legal and literal aspects, I’m an adult. However, I can’t help but want to act like a child again. As I roam the puddle-ridden Grounds after winter break and admire the ice-crusted branches, I find myself mourning the times when I used to climb trees. Sometimes, I think life would be a lot brighter if I allowed myself to tackle my days the way I would as a child.
