Dear Members of the University Community:
It is with great sadness that I write today to inform you of the passing of Rehan Baddeliyanage in an accident while away from Grounds over Spring Break. Rehan was a fourth-year student in the School of Engineering and Applied Science, studying Biomedical Engineering with a minor in Business Engineering.
Student Council is happy to announce that we will be continuing UVA AirBus for Spring Break!
This week marks my final meeting as Student Member of the University’s Board of Visitors. I write today to alert you of the actions of the Board and to solicit your feedback on agenda items pertinent to students. I’m responsible for presenting the array of student opinions on issues before the Board in an advisory, non-voting capacity.
I am pleased to announce that October 18-20 has been set for Family Weekend 2019. We hope you will save the date and plan to join us.
The weekend schedule will include an array of activities, including a home football game with the Cavaliers taking on the Duke Blue Devils on Saturday, October 19, in Scott Stadium. More information regarding tickets for UVA parents and family members will be available soon.
Since last fall, University Programs Council (UPC) has received many questions about a John Paul Jones Arena concert, and now we are thrilled to announce that A$AP Ferg and Aminé will be coming to perform at JPJ on Thursday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m.
This message is to inform you that cases of norovirus have been confirmed in the UVA student population. Because norovirus is highly contagious, the Department of Student Health & Wellness is sending you additional information about the virus, how to help avoid acquiring norovirus, and guidance if you become ill.
Your chances of surviving an emergency increase if you plan your response before an emergency occurs. On behalf of the Department of Safety and Security, I invite you to "Take 3" minutes to consider how to be safe in your office, classroom, residence or lab.
Gloria S. Graham
Associate Vice President for Safety and Security

TAKE 3 minutes as you begin this semester to consider these things:
One of the key values that this University prides itself on is its commitment to student self-governance. Student self-governance adds much to our University’s distinct culture. From class councils and Student Council to Honor and UJC, student leaders are making their marks on our University and its future. If you would like to make an impact here at our University, you should consider running for an elected position in the upcoming 2019 Spring University-Wide Election.
