Hoos in Charge

|"Class Dinner Series"|
In high school, were you the President, Secretary or Treasurer of your Class? And even if you weren’t, did you ever have any plans or ideas on how to make your graduating class the class to be? If you answered yes to either of these questions, Class Council may be the perfect way for you to get involved in UVa’s rich history of student self-governance! Each Class at UVa, from 1st to 4th, has its own individual Class Council. The Class Council for each Class works to create and strengthen class unity and spirit by planning fun and useful class-wide activities/events.
A few examples of these events include Sushi and Karaoke Night, Cookies and Goodies for Nurses Bake Sale, Lululemon Yoga Night and Dumpling Cooking Class. These events bring the entire class together while also raising money for a great cause, informing students about prevalent issues or simply demonstrating a cool dance routine or delicious recipe (not to mention, they’re a great way to meet new people). Each Class Council had an Executive Committee with a Class President, Vice President and Secretary, in addition to several specialized committees pertaining to Academic & Career Development, Community Service, Entertainment, Dinner Series, and Social Technology & Communications. In other words, TONS of opportunities to get involved! These different committees have their own responsibilities but they all come together to share ideas and plan some great events.
