Faculty and administration salaries for the 2018-2019 academic year show that, among the eight highest-paid coaches at the University, just two represent women’s sports.
As the first few weeks of classes wind down and the mountains of textbook readings pile up, why not take a break from that political theory you don’t want to read and dive into some new and exciting books? Arts and Entertainment has got you covered! This month, allow yourself some good, old-fashioned escapism from the stress of the new semester and check out one — or all — of these picks.
U.Va., my beautiful red-bricked burden, we have to talk. It’s about Tina Fey. I love her, you love her, but we gotta stop asking her for stuff. I know it is literally someone's job to wrangle celebrity alumni and politely force them to inspire the next generation of students, but please leave Tina Fey alone. I get that it’s hard to resist, after all, she has all the elements of a desirable University alumna.
Before I left Spain for the United States at the end of my study abroad semester a couple weeks ago, I had basically scoffed at the professors’ warnings that “reverse culture shock” would be a thing. I figured that the transition would be easy, that I would just drop back in at home like nothing had changed — like I had never even left at all.
The Department of Media Studies, like several other majors at the University, requires that students apply to the program during their second year. This spring, the department expects to accept fewer students to account for faculty changes in the coming academic year.
Throughout the course of our nation’s history, we have been blessed with the great fortune of having the right leader at the right time — Lincoln during the Civil War, Roosevelt at the height of the Great Depression and Ford in the aftermath of Watergate. Today, we find ourselves at a similar crossroads where bold, decisive leadership is expected and American resolve and active participation on the world stage is required. The recent escalation in tensions with Iran — a crisis which nearly culminated in a direct military conflict earlier this month — has demonstrated the perils of incompetent leadership. With the stakes now higher than ever and inaction being an untenable course, this is a moment that will require strong, steady and stable leadership. This is a moment for Joe Biden.
Virginia squash faced off against ranked Columbia Sunday with mixed results. The No. 9 women’s team (8-4) suffered a 5-4 loss to No. 7 Lions (8-4), whereas the No. 8 men’s team (11-3) captured a 6-3 win against the No. 11 Lions (5-6).
The Virginia Citizens’ Defense League has often petitioned the General Assembly on Lobby Day. The event — which takes place alongside the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday — draws concerned Virginians to Richmond to petition their representatives over various issues. This year, however, the organization’s efforts to voice its support for protections outlined in the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights drew approximately 22,000 people to the Virginia State Capitol. After Democrats gained control of the legislature in November, Virginians have grown concerned over a slate of proposed gun control measures. Gun sales spiked in the weeks after the election over fears the state government would ban certain firearms, and the VCDL’s usually quiet Lobby Day event attracted not only thousands more participants than previously, but also national media attention.
Student self-governance — the right of students to govern their own academic affairs, adjudicate violations of our community values, enact change at the University and hold administrators accountable — is under threat. It’s been repeatedly violated by University administrators and has been called a sham and broadley dysfunctional by prominent student journalists.
Before epochal writer and academic Roxane Gay took the stage at The Paramount Theater as the Keynote Speaker for the 2020 Community MLK Celebration Jan. 23, the only thing on the stage was a brown leather armchair and an end table with a single bottle of water. The setup was akin to that of a moderated discussion, as though another chair was going to be brought out and occupied by an interviewer.
On the eve of the Lunar New Year Saturday, a string of red lanterns lit up the path behind the International Residential College, culminating at the front steps of Big Morea — part of a two-section complex of Morea House — where Reid Bailey, IRC Principal and Systems Engineering Professor, lives with his family. There, Bailey, his wife and children welcomed students for an annual celebration of the Lunar New Year.

The start of the spring semester is often defined by academic changes and added responsibilities. During this hectic period, it is crucial that students focus on their overall health.
