Welcome to the last blog from this year’s summer guides! I hope you all
have enjoyed hearing what we have to say, and we’ve really appreciated
you reading. For this last blog, each of us will write about what we’re looking
forward to this upcoming year at UVa. Please feel free to reach out to any of
us with questions about school, Charlottesville, or anything UVa!
I’ll be working with Athletics Marketing for the Football, Field Hockey,
and Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse teams this year. UVa offers lots of
internships for students, and great opportunities for learning about careers.
This year, Alex is living in a house with all friends from her first year at
UVa. After your first year, you are free to live off-Grounds, so they’ve
chosen a great house close to UVa.
At the end of your second year at UVa, it’s time to declare your major. Isaiah
is entering his second year, and will be declaring majors in Sociology and
African & African American Studies soon.
Lily is in our interdisciplinary American Studies major, and she is looking
at graduate programs in American Studies and History. Many students from
UVa choose to apply to grad school, and Lily is one of them!
Maddie will be studying abroad at Regent’s University in London as an
Upperclassmen mentor with UVa’s London First program. The program
allows first year students to study abroad before they get to UVa, and
Maddie will be there helping them all learn about college life!
Sabrina is starting a new job at Urban Outfitters in the Downtown Mall.
The Mall is a great place to work since there’s always so much going on and
it’s really close to UVa. Plus, employee discount!
Sam is majoring in Political Philosophy, Policy, and Law in the Batten School
of Leadership and Public Policy. This major requires an application at the end
of your second year, so Sam will be starting coursework this fall after having
been accepted in the spring.
Stefan will be an RA this year! RA’s help first-year students adjust to life at UVa,
create community within dorms, and just make all of the students feel more at home.
Will is studying abroad in Valencia, Spain for an entire year! He will be working
on classes for his Spanish and Media Studies majors, and traveling around Europe.
Will is one of only a few students who will study abroad for two semesters, and it
is a great opportunity to travel and learn more about
You-Jin works at our Career Center at UVa, and she is excited to keep working there
up and into this year.
Thanks again for keeping up with all of us this summer! I’ve loved writing the blogs
every week, and feel free to email me at email@example.com with any UVa questions.
Have a great year and Wahoowa!
