Today we remember the sacrifices made by so many that have served our country. Dr. Bruce Heilman, #urichmond chancellor and president emeritus, will arrive at Arlington National Cemetery today, marking the end of his third cross-country motorcycle ride. Heilman, who served in the U.S. Marines during World War II, and the group of riders he led carried a folded American flag symbolizing the sacrifices of America’s Gold Star Families and their loved ones. You make us proud, Dr. Heilman! 🇺🇸

Check out this video of #urichmond President Crutcher and the Klemperer Trio rehearsing before their debut performance in April at Richmond's @modlincenter! The trio — described by the San Francisco Chronicle as “three brilliant artists who play as one” — played pieces by Mendelssohn, Shostakovich, and Arensky.

We’re soaring above the clouds with #SpiderPride this week! University of Richmond alum and former astronaut Leland Melvin published his first book, “Chasing Space: An Astronaut’s Story of Grit Grace, and Second Chances” this week. While at Richmond, Melvin was a wide receiver on the football team, and was drafted to the Detroit Lions after graduating. When injuries sidelined his NFL career, he looked to the stars, and became one of only 550 people to ever travel to space. Now, he’s working to get more kids excited about careers in science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math. #SpiderPride

Next weekend, alumni will return to campus to celebrate class reunions, and there’s just something special in the air when Spiders reunite. Take ’07 grads Catherine Estevez and Jon Meredith. They didn’t know each other as students, but connected at their five-year reunion in 2012. Five years later, they'll marry just one month after celebrating their 10th #SpiderReunion! 🤵️

We are very excited that our Digital Scholarship Lab’s “The Exective Abroad” was featured in @Natgeo today! This interactive map focuses on the international travels of presidents and secretaries of state. Tim Barney, an associate professor of rhetoric and communication studies, and 16 first-year students in his class, “The Rhetorical Lives of Maps,” collected the data for this project.

It’s #MascotMonday, so say hello to two of our favorite eight-legged friends, Tiny and Tarrant! The white-striped bird eater and the greenbottle blue tarantula make up one quarter of the spider population that lives in Gottwald under the care of the biology department. Together, the eight spiders represent living, breathing school spirit and the opportunity to do research and learn about specific spider species. ️
