101 things we love about UR

D-Hall desserts. Scholarships. Publishing with your professor. Triceragoose. We asked far and wide to compile a list of things Spiders love. Here are 101 of them, in random, not rank, order.
We asked far and wide to compile a list of things Spiders love. This list is not comprehensive or definitive. It’s in random, not rank, order, and even a little shuffled from how it appeared in print. No two lists would be alike. Let us know what’s on your list at magazine@richmond.edu.
Take a peek behind the scenes at the magazine team’s collaboration with UR’s Book Arts Studio to manually typeset and print the art for the cover of the print version of the Spring 2024 issue.
