Hi! My name is Veronica, and I'm a rising second year in the School of Engineering and Applied Science. I'm currently interning with the Office of Admissions at UVA and I'm super excited to experience Grounds as well as the city of Charlottesville over the summer! Studying abroad and gaining a global perspective on a variety of subjects is something UVA encourages of all of its students, so I'm going to be writing about the international experiences of different UVA students. Studying abroad is an awesome way to supplement in-class education, and UVA makes it so easy for students to do so! 

Favorite UVA memory...

One of my favorite UVA memories is Trick or Treating on the Lawn which takes place on Halloween every year. All the little kids from all around Charlottesville (and some alumni even bring their children back!) come dressed in costumes and go door-to-door asking for candy from all the students and faculty who live in the lawn rooms and pavilions lining the Lawn. It's so much fun to see all the adorable little cats, dogs, bumblebees and so on wandering through the heart of the one of the country's oldest and most historic institutions.
