Our next upcoming event is the Transfer Taste of Charlottesville, which is happening on Wednesday, October 1st. We have six big-name C-Ville caterers coming in to help us give our new classmates a gastronomic tour of the city, as well as provide them with an opportunity to spend time in a garden, socialize with each other, and purchase class merchandise. We also have the New Dominions coming to sing for us halfway through the event.
Another event we have coming up is this Friday, October 3rd on the Lawn at 3:00 PM. We’re partnering with the Society for Awakened Souls to sponsor an event called Hugs for Hannah, a support event meant to bring students together who may be struggling during this difficult time at the university. Students are encouraged to come out and join SAS and SYC for an afternoon of hugs, discussion, and writing thank-you notes to officers and volunteers who have so earnestly dedicated themselves to the search for our classmate and friend, Hannah Graham.
Also, we have the Copa Carnival coming up on October 17th in the Amphitheater to celebrate the end of Hispanic Heritage month (previously scheduled for a date back in September). We’ll be partnering with the Latino Student Association (LSA) for carnival games, free food, and a great opportunity to participate in this cultural celebration.
