All Night Long

Stepping through the red crepe streamers into Memorial Gym, memories of high school dances become as vivid as the strings of colored lights draped from the ceiling.

Odds and Ends

Rock around the clock While students boogied, bopped and twisted the night away last Saturday at Dance Marathon, the University's radio station, WTJU (91.1 FM), held its own 24-hour rock-a-thon. The station began its annual Rock Marathon on Friday, and will continue it through the wee hours of next Saturday morning.

Breaking Out of the Mold

Hip-hop and the Charlottesville music scene - the two might not seem synonymous, but those behind today's Genesis 2:001 hip-hop battle, a competitive mix of music, dance and art, hope that their event will broaden the local music scope. Last year, Genesis 2:000 drew a crowd of over 500 onlookers to the Student Activities Building where it was held, and this year, the event's organizers expect a turnout that will fill the building to capacity. "My hope is to legitimize the artistry of hip-hop culture," said Peter Saji, a University alumnus and one of the event's co-founders.

Playing on solid ice

On this cold February night, a chill breeze forces numb hands inside warm coat pockets, but if you think you can take your gloves off inside the Charlottesville Ice Park's arena, you would be mistaken. While fans in heavy coats try to keep warm in this rink on the Downtown Mall, basketball supporters across town cheer on the Virginia men against Wake Forest in a toasty, packed University Hall.

Making the Connection

Football is a long-standing tradition at the University. It causes students to don Anne Taylor dresses or pink oxford shirts for games and alumni to gather for tailgates outside Scott Stadium.

Bunny slope blues

For hundreds of years, my family has lived in the heart of New England. Despite 100 years worth of opportunities to take advantage of the snow-covered mountains in our backyard, no one in my family has ever felt the need to try skiing.

It's a Dog's Life

Looking north on the Lawn, the Rotunda is hard to miss. So is little Rotunda. Even Abercrombie and Fitch could not resist the big eyes and gaping grin of little Rotunda, a canine who landed a modeling job with the company.

It's a Dog's Life

"Is he named after Ronald?" Fourth-year College student Mazen Basrawi must answer this question quite frequently about his guide dog, Regan.

Far East enters Newcomb It's almost the weekend and that means shelving your meal plan for more exciting local fare. Even if your taste buds are dancing for one of the Downtown Mall's fancy cafes or the Corner's charming eateries, the cost of weekend eating excursions can be rough on the college budget. In order to quench your craving for take-out this weekend, make your way over to the Newcomb Hall Ballroom tomorrow for Chinafest 2001 - a taste of the Far East. Beginning at 1 p.m., the Chinese Student Association and the Hong Kong Student Association will present a celebration of Chinese culture and cuisine. Featured booths include Chinese painting, vegetable carving, name translations and calligraphy. &nbsp Related Links Hong Kong Student Association Web site Chinese Student Association Web site Performances of traditional Asian dancing, kung fu, Chinese yo-yo and Lion Dances begin at 2 p.m. These two groups and its members help link the University to the Asian culture. "This is the first year that we are incorporating the local Chinese schools in Charlottesville," said Su-Cha Kang, a fourth-year Engineering student and CSA president.

Run for Your Life

Certain memories of the University last long after graduation: the Lawn, the Rotunda, streaking the Lawn getting rotund from eating dining hall food. But now students have another memory to take with them down the road of life.
