Inauguration and the Super Bowl

By Tom

What do these two unrelated events have in common? The University of Richmond! Well, kind of.

With all of the media excitement surrounding last week’s presidential inauguration, I wanted to point you to Richmond’s own media coverage of the event through The Collegian, our campus newspaper. Many UR students, including Collegian staff, headed up I-95 to Washington for the inauguration last Tuesday. The paper’s website has extensive coverage, including articles, photo galleries, and student reflections on the inauguration.

The next big media event to get national attention will probably be next week’s Super Bowl, and a big shout-out from the Office of Admission goes to Arizona Cardinals running back Tim Hightower! Tim is a former Spider who helped take our football team to the national FCS semifinal in 2007. He graduated last May and has had a phenomenal rookie season with the Cardinals, including carrying in the game-winning touchdown last week against the Eagles in the NFC Championship. Tim, congrats on an awesome season, and best of luck in your first Super Bowl!! We’re proud of you!!
