About Us

Some stories cannot be told in few words. Here in Charlottesville, an area rich with history, conflict and change-makers, The Cavalier Daily created abCD magazine in 2017 to provide in-depth coverage of complex news topics with immersive visuals. We invite you to read, explore and engage with us.

How did this thing start? Is this The Cavalier Daily? What is The Cavalier Daily?

The magazine was originally envisioned, coded and created by The Cavalier Daily’s former Engineering Manager, Leo Dominguez, and his work can be found here. The magazine evolved from The Cavalier Daily’s former Focus section and was collectively operated by editors Abby Clukey, Gracie Kreth, Ben Tobin, Tim Dodson and Katie Vinson.

Now, the site is its own section of The Cavalier Daily, The University of Virginia’s independent student-run newspaper with a staff of over 400 writers, designers and production staffers.
