On Tuesday, Dec. 17, the Burton Dining Hall will be open from 10:00-11:30 p.m. to allow students to have a Late-Night Breakfast during exam season. Dining Services Co-Director and Chef, Michial Neal, said that Dining Services originally started this over twenty years ago and then partnered with the Student Government Association, who will be handing out prizes.
According to Neal, students should come enjoy a break from the stress of studying. Neal said that stress is not good for the body and mind. He also said that this event can help clear the mind and help students focus. Neal said, “It is just a stress reliever.”
After disappointing results during their first season with the University of Lynchburg’s women’s soccer team, the first-years are excited to start of the spring semester and season off strong. The players refuse to allow the same result, a quarterfinal loss in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Championship, to stop them from success in their next three regular seasons.
Forward, Lindsay Grady, says, “This past year has been a time to learn from our mistakes and move forward to be stronger, better, and more of a family than ever. I’m excited to move into the spring with a positive attitude as well as create new team chemistry.”
Thanksgiving Break is over, and I have been in the stage of what we call, senioritis. Over the break, I said to myself “Oh, I am going to get my senior thesis paper done and this website, and be ahead of things.” Did that happen? Nope! Over the Thanksgiving Break, I ended up waitressing at my dad’s new restaurant, Black Friday shopping, and babysitting. I am grateful for making money over break and going shopping, do not get me wrong, but I really wanted to get the stuff done. But it is okay, I will work hard this week on it and get it done. To get me through the next three weeks left, I have thought of some things to do to keep me in the spirit to get things done.
The University of Lynchburg has a variety of dining options for its students ranging from the Burton Dining Hall to the Domino’s at Rainsford Hall. If students want a cheeseburger, then the Westover Room is the perfect place to go or if anyone has a craving for Mexican food, then El Si can fix that craving. As the campus continues to grow, so will the options.
Sadhu Vaswani is attributed with saying, “Love is selfless. It is prepared to sacrifice.” With the way the Internet can be, I am not sure if he truly said that, but I do believe these words are true. In Hallmark movies and the like, love is portrayed as a beautiful, easy thing. Love is beautiful, but I have never known it to be easy. Truly loving someone changes you completely.
The University of Lynchburg is offering a trip to Richmond on Saturday, Dec. 7, so students can do some shopping before the holiday season begins. The trip cost is five dollars for round-trip transportation.
