With Spring Break starting this weekend, we are nearing the mid-way point in the semester. Many transitions begin to take place at this time during the academic year. For graduating students, we recognize the bittersweet transition that lies ahead for them as their time at UVA draws to a close and they chart new pathways. Additional information regarding Finals Weekend is below to help you and your family plan to celebrate this important milestone with your graduating student.
With Spring Break starting this weekend, we are nearing the mid-way point in the semester. Many transitions begin to take place at this time during the academic year. Student elections, in fact, were held last week, and we congratulate not only the winners but also all those who participated in the elections process.
I am writing as many of you prepare to leave later this week for Spring Break. Much of the information that follows should be relevant whether you are heading home, traveling somewhere else, or staying in Charlottesville.
Quick Safety Reminders
Dear members of the University Community:
It is with great sadness that I write today to inform you of the passing of Nicholas Marshall earlier today. Nick was a first-year student in the College of Arts & Sciences and a resident in Lile-Maupin House.
I am pleased to announce that October 26-28 has been set for Family Weekend 2018. We hope you will save the date and plan to join us.
Last year's Family Weekend included a home football game, and that tradition will continue in 2018. The Cavaliers will play North Carolina on Saturday, October 27, in Scott Stadium. More information regarding tickets for UVA parents and family members will be available soon.
Dear Members of the Class of 2018:
In your final semester as undergraduate students here, I write to congratulate you on your accomplishments and to wish you success in your final months of study. After graduation this spring, you will join a global community of alumni who share a common bond and whose devotion and support help secure the University's position as one of the premier universities in the nation and in the world.
Being prepared is one of the best ways to ensure safety during an emergency. Please "Take 3" minutes to review this important information from the Office of Safety and Emergency Preparedness.

One of the key values we pride ourselves on at this University is a commitment to student self-governance. Student self-governance adds much to our community's distinct culture every day. From Class Councils and Student Council to Honor and UJC, student leaders are making their mark on the University and its future. If you would like to enrich the student experience here, you should consider running for an elected position in the upcoming 2018 Spring University-wide Elections.
