Mark Your Calendar for Family Weekend 2018, including Football Game

February 6, 2018

Dear Parents:

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.

Another highlight of the weekend is Fall Convocation on Friday, October 26, at 2 p.m. in John Paul Jones Arena. Third-year students who are receiving Intermediate Honors will be recognized at this event. Intermediate Honors represents the highest academic honor given students prior to graduation. A prominent member of the UVA community also will speak. Convocation is open to all members of the UVA community.

As events are finalized, the Family Weekend website will be updated, so please check back periodically. If you plan to stay overnight, it is important to make hotel reservations as early as possible since demand is very high for this weekend. Links to Charlottesville-area accommodations are available on the website.

We hope to see you in Charlottesville this fall, if not before!

Warm regards,

Patricia M. Lampkin
Vice President and Chief Student Affairs Officer
