With classes having moved online, the virtual change has not just shifted the undergraduate experience, but also that of medical and biomedical graduate students. While some students are more used to remote learning, others have to complete alternatives to their clinical or laboratory work, as well as adjust to summer research cancellations. Students and faculty alike also struggle with lack of social interaction that is now necessary to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
In a show of success in the fight against the novel coronavirus, the antiviral drug remdesivir has been found to accelerate the recovery and improve the survival of COVID-19 patients, according to a trial conducted at U.Va.

In the midst of numerous and vocal calls for University administration to mandate CR/NC grading for the entire undergraduate student body and the ongoing uncertainty regarding the fall semester, the University unveiled several new logos for its athletics program. The response to the new logos has been less than positive. “When I first glanced at it, I thought it was a cockroach,” said one Albemarle County resident. Despite any aesthetic preferences for the University’s athletic logos, one aspect of the new designs has not gone unnoticed by the student body — the grip of the updated sabres was designed to "mimic the serpentine walls" that outline many of the pavilion gardens, according to Virginia Athletics.
Now that classes are over and a difficult, half-online semester has come to a close, it’s a good time to read whatever you want. Maybe you did the hundreds of pages of reading for your politics class, maybe you skimmed a few pages or maybe you didn’t even buy the book — the fact of the matter is, it’s summer now. And instead of feeling pressured to feel any sort of way, Arts and Entertainment is bringing you three books with three very different moods, united by their compelling writing and just waiting for you to take them under your wing.

1. Reorganize your room

A professor is a role model, a mentor and a leader all in one. The University consists of influential faculty members who devote their lives as educators for the growth of the student body.

Since students at the University were sent home in March, I’ve found that I have had more privacy than I ever could have imagined. I live in a big house with just my parents, older brother and dog, so there is plenty of room for everyone. I can be completely alone in my bedroom or in the basement, which my mom still calls “The Playroom” because of all the games my brothers and I would play down there in that expansive room — knee football, Nerf battles, building forts, ping pong. Having so much space and solitude is nice for awhile, but I think it’s too much space for myself.
It’s as if a wizard sprinkled time travel dust on me while I was sleeping in my college apartment. Suddenly, out of nowhere, I’m in high school again. All of the sensations are the same — the chill of the water from the upstairs sink which never quite heats up, the sweet smell of something constantly baking in the oven and even the sound of the wind lapping against my bedroom window. I feel the nostalgia coming on strong.
