Preview the New UVA Commercial

I love a good college commercial. You know how some people wait with baited breath for Super Bowl commercials? That's how I am with college spots. Most schools get a 30-60 second spot during half time of televised games and I have to see them.

I find that the good ones either give me chills or make me want to stand up and cheer. The new UVa spot just came out (it will make its TV debut this weekend) and it makes me want to do both of those things. I feel very lucky to be part of this amazing place in my very small way.




Many will be traveling tomorrow, so I'll wish you a happy Thanksgiving today. Safe travels and have a wonderful holiday!
