Dear students, staff, and faculty,
As we begin a new academic year, we want to make you aware of tools available to all members of the University community:
Dear UVA Parent:
Students can protect themselves against influenza by taking advantage of the Flu Vaccination Clinic offered by the Department of Student Health. Please encourage your student to participate. The flu can lead to missed class time, and given the close living quarters in college, students are at risk of quickly spreading the infection.
Tuesday, October 2, 2018
The University of Virginia Department of Student Health strongly encourages you to consider getting immunized against seasonal flu.
The 2018 Flu Vaccination Clinic will take place:
Tuesday, October 2, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. The clinic will be available for 9 hours to meet your schedule needs.
Dear Members of the University Community:
It is with great sadness that I write today to inform you of the passing of Rouzbeh Rastgarkafshgarkolaei, who died Sunday as a result of injuries sustained in an automobile accident. Rouzbeh was a Ph.D. student studying Mechanical Engineering in the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
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.
Patricia M. Lampkin
Vice President and Chief Student Affairs Officer
Emergencies can happen unexpectedly, and everyone needs to be prepared to act in an emergency. Please TAKE 3 minutes as you begin this semester to consider these three things:
Dear Parents of First-Year Students:
A few short weeks ago your daughter or son arrived at UVA for their first year. I hope your student is engaging in classes and activities, working through the expected adjustments that come with college life, and enjoying this new chapter in their life.
My name is Brendan Nigro and I am the student representative to the Board of Visitors (BOV). The BOV is the highest governing body at the University, responsible for carrying out its long-term planning.
I hope that you have had a pleasant first couple of weeks here at UVA! Now that you have started to settle into life on Grounds, I would like to invite you to apply to one of the many Student Council committees that seek to promote the rights, opportunities, and general welfare of students. I have found my time as a member of Student Council deeply rewarding, as I worked with students and administrators alike to craft policy for the prosperity of our university community. I highly encourage you to lend your skills and perspective to further these efforts.
