Welcome Week 2018

August 15, 2018
From: 
Debbie Yoo, University Programs Council

Dear Students:

As Chair of the University Programs Council, a student-run organization founded to provide welcoming and inclusive events and spaces for students, I and the rest of our Council are grateful for the opportunity to welcome you to Grounds for a new year. With that being said, I am happy to announce the events taking place for UPC Welcome Week 2018.

WELCOME WEEK CONCERT

This year, our Welcome Week concert will be held at the Amphitheater on Saturday, August 25, starting at 9 p.m. We hope you will join us as we kick off a new academic year. In addition, we will still host a JPJ-scale concert sometime during the fall semester. The UPC Executive Board made the decision to wait until later in the semester for this concert since it gives the artist greater flexibility in choosing a date to perform, instead of being limited to one night. More details and ticketing for the Fall JPJ Concert will be announced soon.

For further questions, please contact uvaupc@virginia.edu. We will do our best to respond in a timely manner.

HOO'S HOME

In collaboration with IM-Rec, UVA Dining, Housing & Residence Life, and Class Councils, UPC is proud to announce Hoo's Home, our new school year kick-off event! Taking place in the AFC and Alderman Road areas, the night will start at the Amphitheater with the free concert for students featuring T-Pain, followed by late night activities in and around the AFC.
