Dear Cavalier Fan
Summer is winding down and students are making their way back to Grounds. This year will look different than years past but our goal remains the same: to ensure our student-athletes have the best possible experience while learning and competing at UVA. To achieve that goal, we are diligently working with our donor base to fully fund scholarships, operational budgets, academic support and the Master Plan.
Virginia fans have much to be excited about coming off a special 2019 season.
The support student-athletes receive from programs funded by donors and fans is invaluable.
Fourth-year safety Joey Blount’s passion and emotion on the field are infectious.
Despite canceled spring sports, 2019-20 had many great moments for the Hoos.
Quarterback Bryce Perkins was the driving force behind UVA’s stellar 2019 campaign.
Swimmer Paige Madden powered UVA to a record performance at the ACC Championships.
