Foundations Week

Registration for Foundations Week is closed. 

Hey Class of 2023! Even though Foundations Week registration is closed, there are still opportunities to be connected to the Study Center. Check out our Move-in Day Lunches on Friday, August 23 and Saturday, August 24. We would love to see you there! 

About Foundations Week

The Center for Christian Study's Foundations Week, with support from the Veritas Forum, is a four-day retreat for incoming first years. From August 19-22, students will have the opportunity to meet other first years, get to know Charlottesville, connect with ministry staff, and get grounded in gospel truth—all before Move-In Day.

On Monday, August 19, participants can move into UVA dorms early, after which the Study Center will provide lunch for students and families at 12:30 p.m. First-year students will then embark from the Study Center for a retreat location near town to enjoy a week of exploring UVA, Charlottesville, and the Study Center alongside other incoming first years, upperclassmen, and Study Center staff.
