Days on the Lawn 2015 Dates

Happy Tuesday! I am working on generating some Early Action admission statistics and should have them soon. For now, I thought I'd share the dates that we'll be holding our admitted student open houses, Days on the Lawn.

DOTL is not required, but it's a chance to "kick the tires" and experience UVa in a deeper way than you may have if you visited us to attend an information session and take a tour. Admitted students can attend classes, tour residence halls, eat in the dining hall with a current student, and meet with staff members from different offices around the Grounds at a resource fair. There are also sessions about academics, student life, and resources for parents during DOTL (since parents don't go to class with the students).

Admitted students will get an email when registration opens. For now, think about which DOTL dates might fit into your schedule if you want to make a return visit to UVa before May 1st.

One of the things that I love about DOTL is seeing students who "met" each other via the class' Facebook page or other social media channels getting to spend time together in person. I feel like our classes show up more connected to each other than ever before because they get to know each other before they step foot on Grounds!

 DOTLs are CavDog's favorite days of the year
