(07/05/19 10:41pm)

After success in multiple sports and two national championships this year — in men’s basketball and men’s lacrosse — Virginia has clinched the Capital One Cup in men’s athletics, an honor awarded to the school that achieves the highest level of success across multiple sports. 2018-19 was a successful campaign for Virginia athletics, and sports teams will look to replicate that success in the upcoming year.

Easy morning drinks to prepare in your dorm room

(07/05/19 10:49pm)

When I began my first year, I couldn’t wait to set up my dorm room and settle into my new life, but I soon realized that one of the things I missed the most about home was the fresh coffee my parents brewed every morning. Keurig cups can’t quite compare to fresh coffee in terms of strength and flavor. To make mornings in dorms a little easier, I have a few great drink hacks for any other caffeine lovers out there.

FAHLBERG: Post-Liberalism won’t win the culture war

(06/21/19 10:05pm)

Since the election of Donald Trump, a new faction within the conservative movement has spoken out about the failure of classical liberalism in America. A Catholic journal named First Things has carried the torch for this new post-liberal crusade, publishing an article entitled “Against the Dead Consensus” in March 2019. In this manifesto, the authors proclaim that the pre-Trump conservative consensus “failed to retard, much less reverse, the eclipse of permanent truths, family stability, communal solidarity, and much else.” They continue, “It surrendered to the pornographization of daily life, to the culture of death, to the cult of competitiveness” and “too often bowed to a poisonous and censorious multiculturalism.” According to post-liberals, classical liberalism is a moral vacuum that has failed to orient society around a “higher good” that is necessary to save individuals from themselves.

WANG: The past, present and future of U.Va.

(06/29/19 2:35pm)

My name is Derrick Wang, and last month marked the beginning of my term as the Student Member of the Board of Visitors for the 2019-2020 academic year. If we haven’t met yet, I hope we have a chance to chat this year, but in the meantime here’s a short introduction. I am a fourth-year from Richmond, Virginia studying economics and math. I’m known for — among other things — running outreach for the Honor Committee, cooking elaborate recipes, wearing tasteful scarves and knowing a lot about how the University works. This year, my role will be to represent students on the BOV.

Flying with the flu: How study-abroad students handle sickness

(07/12/19 8:56pm)

During the summer, students often choose to spend their time traveling abroad through one of University-affiliated programs in many countries such as Germany, Portugal, South Africa or even China. Although a change of environment can be daunting, less than one percent of over 3,500 students who travelled abroad for University-related purposes have reported an injury or illness that required a health care professional’s treatment during the 2017-18 school year.

The Virginia track and field team competed at the 2019 Division I Outdoor NCAA Championships in Austin, Texas, from June 5-8.

Virginia basketball’s 2019 NBA Draft projections

(06/14/19 3:41pm)

The NBA Draft — June 20 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. — is rapidly approaching, and three Virginia players have opted to remain in the draft after forward Mamadi Diakite withdrew his name from consideration the day of the May 29 deadline. Guards De’Andre Hunter, Ty Jerome and Kyle Guy all decided to void their remaining years of eligibility — Hunter had two remaining years left, and Jerome and Guy had one — to give themselves a chance at achieving their NBA dream. Hunter, Jerome and Guy were all named to the Final Four All-Tournament Team after leading Virginia to the first men’s basketball national championship in school history. Now, after months of training and preparation, the Cavaliers’ “big three” will soon hear where they will land. In anticipation of the NBA Draft, the CD Sports Staff makes their own projections.

Class of 2067 wya?

(07/12/19 12:18pm)

For once in my life, a family member gave me decent advice. Instead of telling me to “never go to class in sweats” or “just major in business,” my cousin told me, “Don’t graduate early.” I tossed his words around like Nicki Minaj tosses salad, then quickly concurred. I don’t want to graduate early. Heck, I don’t want to graduate at all. I am now, officially, the first member of the class of 2067.

PASCIAK: A case against the electoral college

(06/26/19 2:35am)

The electoral college system was established in 1789 as a compromise between states with large populations and states with smaller populations to guarantee equal representation in government. While the system initially operated to protect small states, this was when our country was first founded, when states acted more as 13 individual colonies with their own interests than as one unified country. In present day, however, the electoral college system only serves as an impediment to democracy by disenfranchising voters and improperly representing the true opinions of the country.
