Last summer, Conor Phelan, '13, set out to become the first member of his family to see Freeburn Mountain in nearly eight decades. The 700-mile kayak trip would confirm that he, too, had the family blood for adventure, as well as the drive to surmount the most harrowing challenges the wilderness would send his way. His journey through the Alaskan wilderness to retrace his family's lost past was detailed in "The Mountain in Him," part of the most recent #URichmond Magazine.

“Maintaining working productive hives at UR will allow students to observe and work with a living laboratory, which will demonstrate the interconnected roles of individual species in our local ecosystem." - Kirstin Berben, biology laboratories manager and assistant beekeeper. Future plans for this living lab include a pollinator garden consisting of apple and peach trees, as well as shrubs and flowers to attract bees and butterflies. #SpiderPride#NationalPollinatorWeek #PollinatorWeek

We're back in Italy for this week's #SpiderSpotting! #URichmond President Crutcher was at LUMSA University in Rome this week addressing the opening plenary session at the Council of Europe’s Global Forum on “Higher Education for Diversity, Social Inclusion, and Community: A Democratic Imperative." His remarks provided a brief history of how critical an educated electorate is to democratic societies and affirmed America’s commitment to education. ️🇮🇹

Earlier this month, our #Spider alumni returned to Richmond for reunion weekend — some from as far as Australia, Denmark, and Peru — filling the dorms and campus with life while our students are away for the summer. To all the Spider alumni out there, we hope to see you very soon! Here are some of our favorite shots from the weekend. #SpiderPride #TBT
