Dear Parents:

The Department of Student Health has identified two suspected cases of mumps in our student population. The following message was sent to students earlier today and provided them with information about the mumps virus, how to avoid contracting mumps, and guidance on what they should do if they become ill. We hope that you will encourage your student to follow protective measures and to seek care if needed.

An Important Message regarding Voter Registration Information

Dear Students,

There is an election in Virginia on Tuesday, November 7, 2017, to elect the next Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, members of the House of Delegates, and local officials across the Commonwealth. This election is especially important to UVA students, as the Governor of Virginia appoints the next Board of Visitors, UVA's governing body, for terms of four years, pending their approval by the General Assembly. If you want to affect what happens at UVA, you must vote in this election!
