Introducing the New Dream Team

Welcome to Hoo Stories, a UVA student blog for prospective students! My name is Sydney Sampson and I’m one of the student tour guides interning in the Admissions Office this summer. Over the course of the summer, the other guides and I will continue to blog about our student experiences at UVA. Each intern will share a story or discuss an event that illustrates something unique about student life. Our blog posts could include anything from student activities, fond traditions, research opportunities, study abroad programs, athletics, academic programs and so much more! And if there are any topics that you are particularly interested in, feel free to comment and let us know. We cannot wait to share our stories with you this summer.
