From President Ryan: Family Weekend Greetings

October 24, 2018
All Parents
James E. Ryan, President

Dear Parents and Family Members:

If you are coming to Charlottesville later this week for Family Weekend, you just might run into President Ryan. In fact, you can run with him on Saturday morning. Beginning at 8 a.m. in front of Madison Hall, he will lead a roughly 4-mile run through the Grounds. The Family Weekend Run is open to everyone – students, parents, family members, and friends. 

Tickets are still available for Saturday’s football game against North Carolina. Kickoff is at 12:20 p.m. Reserved tickets for Family Weekend guests are $25 (normally $45-$55) and available in a variety of sections. To purchase discounted tickets, go to the ticket website and enter the promotional code UVAFAMILY. Your UVA student receives free admission to the game with their student ID.

Many other events will be taking place, including Fall Convocation, Third Year Ceremony, CultureFest, open houses, concerts, performances, and a First-Year Tailgate for students and their families. Please check the Family Weekend schedule for complete details.

We look forward to seeing many of you during this special weekend.
