Important Message about Berglunds

As a reminder, please keep in mind that most Berglunds scheduled here in the Honors College are likely to last a full hour.  Do not assume they will last 50 minutes; this is why the start time and end time are posted on the HC website.  Although it is sometimes permissible to leave during the Q&A portion of a seminar, you cannot expect to leave a presentation early and receive Berglund credit.  In addition, students are not permitted to use any electronic devices including laptops during the seminars.  Speakers are guests of the Honors COllege who have volunteered their time and deserve your full attention.  Using an electronic device during a seminar may result in your losing credit for attending.


RamPantry exists to provide students, faculty, and staff with healthy emergency food. As a result of the growing food insecurity issue across metropolitan Richmond, we have nearly doubled with usage. We are asking for nonperishable canned good donations across the university to help meet this growing need. Please consider donating individually to RamPantry, located in room 121 of the University Student Commons. For inquiries on starting a food drive, please email outreachrampantry@gmail.com. Thank you!
