Introducing the 2014 Office of Admission Interns

Introducing the 2014 Office of Admission Interns

Welcome to our new tour guides and bloggers!

At the UVA Office of Undergraduate Admission, we're thrilled to welcome our eight new summer interns. Studying everything from Elementary Education to Marketing to Engineering, this group of rising second through fifth year Master's students will be leading UVA visitors around Grounds on informational walking tours. They'll cover everything from housing to extracurricular involvements to UVA traditions and secret societies (at least the not too secretive parts!). They'll also be leading online readers through bimonthly blog posts, with a new post from a different blogger every day Monday through Thursday. Keep your eyes peeled and follow Hoo Stories, this all starts next week!

Topics include...

  1. These interns are good for the office because they empathize with the applicants. They understand the frustration, anticipation, eagerness, and the ability to just think positive for a time period which you honestly don't know what will happen because college is a life-changing phase. - Lay of
