Along with Spring Fling, the Office of Undergraduate Admission / Outreach Office also hosted Spring Blast — our DOTL event for newly accepted Latinx students. During this year’s Spring Blast, current students along with the Outreach Office hosted an event called Primera Vista at UVA’s 1515 Building on the Corner. There was great food, performances by the University Salsa Club, information sessions regarding resources offered to Latinx students on Grounds, and so much more.
We’d also like to give a shoutout to Diana Villanueva, a fellow intern in our office, who handled the events pertaining to Spring Blast, this year. Diana is only a first year at UVA, but is certainly no stranger to the University. Diana is proud to say that she has “found her home at UVA,” and hopes that the Latinx students who attended Spring Blast will consider choosing UVA to be their home as well. “Spring Blast is only a taste of what UVA has to offer for the Latinx Community,” and we hope to see more of you guys on Grounds next Fall to make this University an even better place!
Thanks again to everyone who helped and attended Spring Blast. Until next year!
