Days on The Lawn 2009

The Days on The Lawn schedule for 2009 has been set and it's a little different this year. DOTL are open houses for admitted students.

Saturday, April 4th will be Scholars Day. This day is set up specifically for the students invited into the Echols, Rodman, and College Science Scholars programs. You aren't required to attend this day and you can attend a different DOTL if it doesn't work with your schedule.

The regular Days on The Lawn are:
Monday, April 6th
Monday, April 13th
Friday, April 17th

Monday, April 20th

You are not required to attend. In the past, we've had many students show up for what some call a "victory lap", meaning they are already decided and have deposited at UVa. While we love having you here, keep in mind that these events are crucial for students who are still weighing their college options. We want to allow those students to get as much time with us as they need so that all of their questions can be answered.

Juniors and sophomores, if you are planning to visit us in April, please try to avoid these days. The Grounds are packed full of visitors and parking is very, very difficult as a result.

For more info, see the Plan a Visit page on our website. See past entries about DOTL by clicking the tag below this post.

A note about parking: We have rented out the entire Emmet/Ivy Garage for DOTL. For those familiar with Grounds, that is the garage behind The Cavalier Inn, at the intersection of Emmet Street (Route 29) and Ivy Road. The UVa bus has a stop right outside the garage for those who don't want to take the short walk up to Grounds. We will not be validating for the Central Grounds Garage that day. We want that garage to remain as open as possible for people who have other business on Grounds on DOTL days.
