Pizzeria personalities: If your favorite pizzeria could talk

(10/02/19 8:18pm)

Charlottesville has plenty of pizzerias, but not all are the same. We each have our favorites for one reason or another — whether it’s the old man who works the counter, the crust that’s chewy just the way you like it or the fact that they deliver at 2 a.m. You could say each pizzeria has its own distinct personality —  so if your favorite pizzeria was a person, who would they be? 

ASU kicks off its annual 'Not a Model Minority' campaign

(10/03/19 4:12am)

Fourth-year McIntire student Jannette Nguyen grew up and attended school in a predominantly Caucasian area. As one of the few minority students at her school, she recalled frustration at being targeted as part of the very common “model minority” stereotype. This myth perpetuates the stereotype that Asian Americans are all smart, successful and superior to other minority groups. 

Nutella pumpkin muffins that will give you a whole new appreciation for fall

(10/01/19 10:49pm)

There’s something incredibly special about the change of season. I get that many people love summer, but I’m definitely more of a fall person. The leaves change, the weather gets cooler, the holiday season approaches and Halloween festivities ensue — not to mention Thanksgiving, sweaters, football, hiking and fall baking.

Facilities Management team aims to keep on-Grounds recycling clean, useful for repurposing

(10/03/19 1:51am)

Each year, thousands of University students occupy both on- and off-Grounds housing options. From morning K-cups to lunchtime to-go boxes and plastic water bottles to endless Amazon package deliveries, trash builds up quickly. When it comes to certain days like move-in and move-out, dumpsters are constantly reaching their maximum capacity. To keep the endless disposals of the University at bay, University staff such as Nina Morris, sustainability outreach and engagement manager, and Sonny Beale, recycling superintendent for the University Academic and Health Systems, work behind the scenes to keep the University environmentally focused. For off-Grounds residents, recycling options are not as available.

(10/02/19 11:50pm)

Between 2014 and 2019, much has changed in the realm of Virginia athletics. Men’s basketball went from winning their first ACC championship in almost five decades to winning a national championship. Football has turned from the doormat of the ACC to an ACC Coastal Division contender. However, for men’s soccer, the winning formula has stayed constant. 

Dream big, they said

(10/03/19 12:06am)

Since a young age, I’ve been told to dream big because “anything is possible.” If we try hard enough and put our best foot forward, our biggest and brightest dreams can come true! Right? This idea has been ingrained in my mind and the minds of many others, I’m sure. We hear it from our parents, teachers, mentors, friends’ parents, preachers, celebrities, etc. that the only limit is our imagination in what we can dream and thus achieve. In a world rife with discord, most everyone seems to agree on this one big idea. The repetition of this simple phrase so frequently by so many people made it seem like fact. And for about 18 years it almost seemed realistic to me too, until I came to the University.

ASCH: There is plenty of affirmative action for rich people

(09/30/19 2:44am)

Over the weekend, The Cavalier Daily broke the story that the University’s administration was deploying resources to aid applicants connected to wealthy donors.

I’m forgetting my mother tongue

(10/04/19 12:28pm)

For every first-year student, the first few weeks of the school year are full of meeting new people — and my experience was no exception. I met countless people in my dorm, in class and in club interest meetings. At the University, I’ve found that students tend to “break the ice” by bringing up school-related topics first. “How are you liking your time here?” and questions about majors and living situation are asked more often than questions like, “Where are you from?”
