Fall Welcome Events!
Fall 2019 is fast approaching and the beginning of the Fall semester can be one of the most fun times of the year! We start each semester with some exciting and fun events to welcome new students to UVA.
We would love to welcome you to grounds and invite you to some of our events during the first two weeks of classes. These events are a great way to learn more about The Navigators at UVA and get connected with us this Fall. Plus they are a great way to connect with and meet new friends.
Sports & Freeze Pops
Move-in day can be hard. The solution: An afternoon of sports followed by some freeze pops to cool you down. This will be a great way to meet some new people. We will be playing football, basketball, spikeball, volleyball, frisbee, soccer, and more! If you don’t want to play sports, there will be blankets, hammocks and picnic tables to chill and hang out.
Date: Friday & Saturday, 8/23 & 8/24
Location: Behind Bonnycastle (Old Dorms)
First Year Luau
Join us for a Hawaiian Luau party complete with Hawaiian Pizza, pineapples, hula hoops, and luau-themed games! It will be a great and relaxed atmosphere to meet some new friends. Plus there will be some themed food and snacks to enjoy!
Date: Saturday 8/25
Location: The Pav (1st floor of Newcomb in the food court)
Back to School BBQ
Celebrate completing the first day of classes at our Back to School BBQ! Hang out and meet new friends and join us for some lawn games (Spikeball, Cornhole, Kan Jam, etc.). Our BBQ Dinner will guaranteed be better than dining hall food, plus we will have some great snacks and desserts.
Date: Tuesday 8/27

FIRST NavNight of the SEmester
NavNight is our weekly large group meeting. We meet together to worship and be challenged by biblical teaching. And it is always a great place to build deeper friendships.

Friday Night Fiesta
Everybody loves guacamole, pinatas and tacos. Join us for an evening of delicious food, games, music, and more! It will be a chill, yet fun, evening perfect for de-stressing after the first week of classes. Plus, there will be a round of trivia with a coveted prize awarded to the winner.
Date: Friday, 8/30
Time: 7:30 p.m.
Every year we take a sunset hike to Humpback Rocks. It’s a beautiful, local hike that's on every UVA students' bucket list. We will grab hiking sustenance (aka dinner) at O-Hill Dining at 4:45 p.m. and head out from there. Prepare for a breathtaking and memorable hike!
