Favorite UVA memory...
My favorite UVa memory was from my first weekend at UVa as a first-year student. After going to the Welcome Concert with some of my new friends from my dorm, we decided to walk to the Lawn and sit on the Rotunda for the first time as UVa students. While we were walking to the Rotunda, a fourth-year came out of his lawn room, asked us if we were first-years, and invited us into his lawn room to hang out with him and his friends. He did not know me or any of my friends from my dorm, but all he needed to know was that we were first-year UVa students for him to want to befriend us and make us feel welcome. This was only my first weekend, but already the students that I met were making me feel so at home at UVa that I knew I had made the right decision to come to UVa.
