retirement

Last Thursday, my retirement at the end of this academic year was announced on social media, and in a heartbeat, it was all over the web. Sixty years ago, an announcement of this kind would have been appeared first in The Critograph. My career in collegiate journalism began in September 1958, but by the time I graduated in 1962, I had worked on all the Lynchburg College publications, edited The Prism, and was President of The Board of Publications.

This past weekend (September 28-30) marked the 3rd annual Queen City Mischief and Magic celebration, or known to my family as Staunton’s Potter Party. For the many who are unaware, every year Staunton, VA, closes down a few streets and fans of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series flock to the city to participate in many magical events. The celebration is family and small business friendly, as many of the local stores decorate with Harry Potter themes and offer plenty of Potter merchandise. There are shows and people dressed as the founders of Hogwarts, Dumbledore, and even Voldemort.

The assignments, essays, homework, quizzes, exams, and laundry are all piling up. The 24 hours we get each day seem to be getting shorter and shorter. The bags under our eyes are getting darker.

On September 22, 2018, an email thread was started by a number of University of Lynchburg students expressing their concerns regarding 2018-2019 meal plans and dining hall hours.

Travis Carr started the thread saying, “I would just like to draw attention to a situation involving the dining services that has become increasingly annoying over the last few weeks. Myself and several of my peers here at Lynchburg are quite irritated by the amount of money we were required to spend this year on a meal plan. 5,000 dollars is a huge price for unlimited swipes that most of us would have forgone under the previous meal plan setup.”
