Join our parents welcome Zoom

Move-In Day Lunch is an annual gathering that began in 1999. Each August since then, we’ve filled every square foot of the building with first years, transfer students, moms, dads, siblings, and sandwich fixings. This year, our welcome event needs to look a little different. While we are not able to pack our building full of people or serve up a tasty lunch buffet, we still want to welcome you to our building and to the Christian community at UVA.

Check out the links at the bottom of the page for more information about Grounds Ministries and Churches serving the Charlottesville community! We are excited to meet you and help you “Launch” into this new and strange school year. Bring your stress, your excitement, your fear, and your joy. We will have folks to welcome you and answer questions, some individually packaged snacks, and a bit of socially-distanced air conditioning.

We will also be hosting a welcome event on zoom for parents of first years and transfer students. Parents, join us at one of the following times:

  • Tues, August 25, 7:00—8:00 p.m.
  • Wed, August 26, 7:00—8:00 p.m.
  • Thur, August 27, 12:00—1:00 p.m.
