Title

Opinion "Is UR too intelligent for ignorance?"

Description

Gregory T. Ricks, Multicultural Programmer for Stanford University, came to the University and remarked that "students here are too intelligent to be so ignorant." This article talks about that remarks and about Ricks, who went on to say that "it's horrendous for a university of this caliber to have such a lack of diversity." Kendall, the writer, goes on to say that "it gives a false impression of the real world" and draws more attention to the apathy of the student body and a seeming unwillingness to go above and beyond. The author says that to make things better, students must send a clear message that "this is a campus that welcomes diversity," and that Richmond had a chance to prepare for diversity before it arrives that Stanford didn't have.
