What's New with Dan?

It's been too long since I've posted. I have so much going on and so much to tell you. So here's just a little snapshot of my life's events right now.

Rush Week

Rush week might have been a little stressful, but for the most part it was fun and eventful!

Christmas in Richmond

Like many people, Christmas is my favorite time of the year. From the music and decorations to the presents and family, there’s never a dull moment!

Finals Week

Ugh. When I think of the word “finals” I automatically become physically uncomfortable. No one likes finals. But, now that I’m half way through, I think I’ll survive.

Thanksgiving Break

Thanksgiving break was awesome! I got to see my family and friends and, most importantly, I got to eat some really great food! Being in Massachusetts made me realize how great Richmond is!

Friday was the first basketball game of the season. As if newly refurbished arena and a win weren't enough, courtside seats made the night memorable.

"Everybody Knows Mock Trial Rocks"

Attorney: Objection, Your Honor! This is speculation. The witness is speculating as to the beliefs of everyone and thus I request the testimony be stricken from the record. 

Judge: It is speculation. But it is also a true statement. Overruled.

Wake Up and Smell the Coffee

Hi, my name is Dan and I am a coffeeholic.

Yesterday, the first-year living-learning community, Explore UR World, took D.C. by storm. We refused to be deterred by the rainy weather, seeing a ton of what this historic city has to offer. Bouncing from museum to museum, stopping by the Washington Monument and the White House and eating some marvelous food, this was a trip to remember.

A Happy Ending

There was no question. Richmond was where I needed to be. Thankfully, they agreed.

My name is Dan. I am a freshman at the University of Richmond. Originally from the burbs of Boston, I love the warm temperature and kind people that I find south of the Mason Dixon. I play tennis, love theater, listen to all types of music and I watch barely any television. I have a large mixed family. My dog is named after my favorite, underrated and former Red Sox right-fielder, Trot Nixon. He's cute--my dog that is. Not the player. I am a very vigilant student aiming for nothing but success but as my family would attest to, I'm not always serious. I am a goofball at heart. In high school, I sometimes forgot to let out my fun side and focused tremendously on schoolwork only. At Richmond, I plan to work on achieving balance in my life when it comes to work, study, health and social. 

Why UR?

I applied to Richmond under Fall Early Decision knowing it was my first choice. As I stated above, I was a very serious high school student and I was equally diligent in my college search process. I started the summer before my sophomore year looking at small liberal arts colleges in New England. I went on a southern road trip with my dad and we basically came to Richmond blindly- not hearing much about the school other than the high praise of some friends. When I originally left campus, I was confused because I loved it so much but hadn't yet done the extensive research that I had for every other school on my list. When I completed that step, there was no question that Richmond was a perfect fit. Their educational opportunities of study abroad, Leadership Studies, a nationally ranked undergraduate business school along with the small, communal campus made it an easy decision. Now that I'm here, my decision is strengthened everyday.
