DOTL 2012 Recap

The 2012 Days on the Lawn season is over!  For the first time in recent memory, we didn't have to use our rain location for the opening welcome session (though we had a few raindrops one morning, it wasn't enough to send us inside).  We had wonderful, but manageable crowds and there seemed to be plenty of room for everyone to visit a class or two and get into every session or tour that interested them.

I'm sure the residents of the Lawn are happy that the 8:15 AM wake up calls from the Cavalier Marching Band or UVa Drum Line are over.  I hope you enjoyed cheering along and learning the Good Ol' Song with us!

CavDog, who is on his fourth round of Days of the Lawn events, had a fantastic time.  

Our amazing student volunteers loved meeting you all and sharing the Grounds with visitors for the day.  I hope you were able to meet some of them and get their perspectives on what it's like to be a student at UVa.

Did you attend Days on the Lawn?  What parts of the day did you find most interesting or helpful with the big decision you have to make by May 1st?
