Driving 'em wild

Ding! A passenger pulls on the overhead line, signaling the bus driver to stop. The driver pulls up to the curb, lets off several students, picks up a couple more, and it's business as usual. Sounds simple.

In Black and White Fifty-nine percent of black undergraduate students view news coverage in The Cavalier Daily as racially biased, according to a survey conducted last spring for the State of Race Relations, a new University group. This independent student organization completed the first-ever comprehensive survey of student attitudes toward race relations at the University and now challenges fellow students to talk about the results. "We're looking to come up with concrete solutions to racial problems at the University," said Michael Freedman-Schnapp, co-founder of the State of Race Relations. Tonight at 8 the group is holding an open forum in the Chemistry Auditorium to present the results of the study, conduct a moderated discussion, and hear the views of a student panel.

Waiting for Bodo

"Where's Bodot, I thought you said he was coming." "He is." "When?" "Soon." "Oh." "Coming." It has been a familiar word on the Corner District, where Charlottesville's third Bodo's Bagel shop officially has been "coming" for over five years. Six classes have arrived on Grounds, two classes have walked down the Lawn, the Corner got a Starbucks and Scott Stadium got HooVision.

'Energizer' runners just keep going and going and going

As a lazy child, you watched your father sternly shake his finger at you and bellow, "Son, you are just standing here as the world passes you by!" Now that you have matured, removed yourself from the path of that shaking finger and made it to college, this admonition still may apply.

Driving down Route 29, the Blue Ridge Mountains seem to call out to Ashley Meeks every time she returns to Charlottesville. "I want to get out there," she often says to herself.

Jolting U.Va. students into organization Have no fear, jolted first-years: The Daily Jolt is here. Every aspect of the University experience, social and academic, is intense. And your first year, even trying to find everything you need -- from location of classes to a specific Greek-lettered building down Rugby -- can be painstakingly difficult. The University "Daily Jolt" is a new Web site designed to help University students with everything from eating out to scheduling classes on time, said second-year Engineering student John Mell, one of the two designers of the Web site. Related Links The Daily Jolt @ UVA &nbsp The site comes complete with a discussion forum on University issues, a marketplace similar to the auctioning behemoth eBay, a listing of movies and TV shows relevant to college students, and an abundance of important University links, including ISIS and the Course Offering Directory. To produce the Web site, Mell and a friend, second-year Engineering student Jason Kearns, had to put in a lot of time over the summer. "Instead of working on my summer job, I did this," Mell said. "The Daily Jolt" is a network of collegiate Web sites designed to provide students with a compilation of convenient, useful links.
