Rush Hospitality


January 6–11, 2020 | Open as an ISC Warming House

Each January, the Study Center seeks to care for women during UVA's sorority recruitment. In 2011, the Inter-Sorority Council invited the Study Center to be an official "warming house" during recruitment, which means that every woman rushing enters our building at some point during the recruitment process each year. A collection of non-Greek students, parents, and alumni serve as volunteers alongside our staff by preparing coffee and snacks, and checking in with girls in this safe and welcoming environment. This annual hospitality event gives us the opportunity to care for our neighbors on Chancellor Street and for first-year students. 

If you are interested in volunteering for this event by bringing food for the women or helping out in our building, please contact Katie Hightower. If you are a student going through recruitment this spring, please let us know if there are any ways we can better serve you during this season.

More information, such as volunteer opportunities, are to be determined.
