UVA Clubs Summer Socials Resources

UVA Clubs are invited to host fun and casual Summer Socials as an opportunity for the entire UVA community in your area to connect with each other.

This series of events embraces the traditional summer student send-off and expands to include new and returning students, alumni, friends, and families in your region.

This is an exciting opportunity for all Hoos in your area to build their local UVA network and provide a warm welcome to new Hoos.

Event Funding

Itemized receipts are required for reimbursements. The Office of Engagement will reimburse up to $20.00 for each participant pre-registered online for live events. Reimbursements may not exceed the amount of money spent on the event.

NOTE:  Clubs are required to charge a minimum admission price of $10 to anyone other than incoming students and their families. You may charge more if you feel that $30 per person ($20 OOE reimbursement + $10 admission) won’t cover your event expenses. For tax purposes, $5 of your ticket price will be labeled a donation to your Club’s UVA Fund account or scholarship account, and the money will be transferred into your UVA Fund account following your event.  This does not apply to incoming students and their families, who will automatically be admitted for free.

RECEIVING YOUR REIMBURSEMENT: UVA Clubs with a UVA Fund account will receive funding through their UVA Fund account. The club will then be responsible for reimbursing hosts or volunteers as needed for expenses they may have incurred.
