Every year, students across the United States come to the University of Lynchburg to further their education and challenge their academic thought. This year, Lynchburg College changed its name to the University of Lynchburg, and along with that change came a variety of new areas of study. New majors and minors include: psychological science, pop culture, and forestry and wildlife. Furthermore, the University of Lynchburg broadened their schools. Each of the University’s majors and minors are divided into separate schools. For example, the School of Science includes majors and minors of chemistry, biology and physics, and the School of Humanities include majors and minors of English, foreign language, and religion.

Mystic Magic: The Future is in the Cards

Grace Cavanaugh, Staff Writer~

I’ve always been interested in Tarot. At first, it started with a little interest while I was doing research for a story I was writing. I talked to a Pagan friend of mine who read Tarot about which cards would mean this and that, and she gave me a few websites to look at, as well as a few suggestions for the cards I should look up. I went on to tell my aunt about this same story, and the research I’d done, and then my aunt surprised me with a pack of Tarot cards. At the time, I had no interest in doing readings. I just thought they were cool. The cards my aunt gave me were zombie themed, but I never got to even open them. My parents aren’t very religious, or weren’t at the time, but they were superstitious. My mom made me give the cards back, because by having them I was inviting “the Devil” into our house. Read more

New and returning students may notice that Lakeside Drive is closed down with detour signs offering alternative routes. What some do not know is that Lakeside Drive is actually part of the dam. On August 2, 2018, torrential rains caused the dam holding back College Lake to fail, and water broke through and crossover Lakeside Drive. Since then, the University of Lynchburg and city officials have been discussing options for College Lake, which has since been drained due to extensive damage to the dam. According to Dr. Thomas Shahady, professor of Environmental Science at the University of Lynchburg, “The dam is inadequate. Because there’s homes below it, [city officials] are concerned that if we have another big storm that it could breach the dam.” Read more

On Thursday, March 22, senior Kyle Lawhorn previewed his translation of “The Little Prince,” which premiered in Dillard Theatre. “The Little Prince” is a children’s book turned play, musical and animated movie.

At first, Lawhorn planned on directing a performance of “Peter and the Starcatcher” for the Old City Cemetery, but after Lynchburg College announced they were performing the show, he changed his selection to “The Little Prince,” since he had just completed the translation. Read more
