A special note for those planning visits

CavDog was distracted by a large tour on The Lawn this afternoon.

It's spring break time at many high schools and that means those of you hitting the road for college visits will encounter packed information sessions and large tours at many of your stops.

At UVa, we've added extra sessions on Sundays at 10 AM and weekdays at 8:30 AM during our busiest weeks. The University Guide Service is also scheduling extra tour guides in hopes of keeping groups a little smaller. For the full schedule of sessions and tours, along with the list of open classes and information about arranging day and overnight visits, check the "Plan a Visit" page of the Office of Admission website.

Admitted student open houses, called Days on The Lawn, are scheduled for April. Information will be included in offer letters.

We're looking forward to seeing you!
