Spring Showcase

Spring Showcase was a virtual open house designed to highlight Black/African American and Hispanic/Latinx student experiences here at UVA. This two-day virtual event for admitted students highlighted some of the countless resources that students use to find their place in the diverse UVA community.

Spring Showcase featured panels on Black, Latinx, and multicultural experiences; a student-led virtual tour of Grounds; a discussion on the University’s culture of community and advocacy; and more!

This is your University, and you belong here. Allow Spring Showcase to jumpstart your educational path by helping you find your fit.
