Stevenson is an excellent speaker. He is obviously an extremely passionate man whose heart has led him to his career. He opened his speech strongly with many statistics highlighting social issues in our country today, particularly focusing on the issue of mass incarceration and less than adequate systems for released prisoners. He then moved forward… Read More


Lately i’ve been feeling  a bit down. Not for any particular reason, I just think I’m feeling the consequences of having more responsibility than I ever have before. I’ve also not been sleeping well, or at least not enough. School has become more stressful this semester with Accounting and Math being so demanding. As much… Read More


At the beginning of the year I decided to try and take SCMA 201 (I believe this is the correct course name), which is business Calculus. I hadn’t taken a math course since junior year of high school, and that was pre calculus. I went to the first day of class and felt fairly confident.… Read More


I get very sick of hearing, “I listen to everything pretty much… oh, everything except country”. First of all, I very much doubt you listen to much more than today’s hip hop radio hits, and a few throwbacks from the 90s and early 2000s.

Am I the only one who feels like I haven’t changed all that much since coming to VCU? Don’t get me wrong, I’m more than happy to see others grow into the person they feel like they truly are, I just am becoming tired of seeing people do everything possible to fit in here. Getting… Read More


Who says that it makes you an asshole to focus on yourself? When was this lie distributed, and what made almost all of us take the bait? Certainly there is much to be said about helping those who may be in need. But there is even more to be said about someone whose motivations and… Read More


I want more time to myself. I live in a room with two other guys. I share 5 showers and 3 bathroom stalls with upwards of forty dudes. Since coming to VCU, I have had little to no time to spend on myself. I feel that this is harmful to my development. I need to… Read More


If you live in Richmond, or any decent sized city for that matter, you should own a bike. There are a ton of reasons why, but i’ll try to narrow the list down to some of the most important and impactful. For starters, traffic is a major issue in the city. Due to the grid… Read More
