Dorms 101: A Crash Course in First-Year Housing

May 24 10:05pm Hoo Stories: A UVa Student Blog
Roommates? Sharing bathrooms? RAs? What?!Welcome to dorm life!Since many of you are either newly admitted students (congrats!) or prospective students looking to gain some perspective on the UVa student experience, I thought I'd shed some light on the many housing options available here. (This post will focus primarily on first year housing.)McCormick Road Residence Area Affectionately known as Old Dorms to most UVa students, the McCormick Road Residence Area is made up of five dorm associations: Kent-Dabney, Metcalf-Lefevre, Bonnycastle-Hancock, Page-Emmet, and Echols-Humphrey. They're all traditional, hall-style dorms with communal bathrooms, and they're separated by floor in terms of gender. They're also only about a 5 minute walk from central grounds and most classes. About the old part...Yes. They are old. They may not have air-conditioning and the carpets may look like they're from the 1950's and I definitely wouldn't go in the bathroom without a solid pair of shower shoes...BUT. Old Dorms can also be an amazing place to live during your first year. They're known for their social atmosphere - so leave your door open and get to know your hallmates; they may become some of your best friends. You never know! Important thing to note: During the 2017-2018 academic year, Bonnycastle, Kent, and Dabney will be closed for major renovation.Alderman Road Residence Area Elevators, TV lounges, and air-conditioning galore - welcome to New Dorms (yeah, you guessed it - they're new!). The Alderman Road Residence Area is made up of nine different dorm associations: Balz-Dobie, Cauthen, Gibbons, Kellogg, Lile-Maupin, Shannon, Tuttle-Dunnington, Watson-Webb, and Woody. They're all hall-style with communal bathrooms, and like old dorms, are also gendered by floor. They're about a 10 minute walk from central grounds, but located conveniently right next to Observatory Hill Dining Hall. The lowdown on New Dorms: Yes, they're new. They're shiny. They have ~fancy things~. But just like Old Dorms, they also have their downsides. New Dorms are located slightly farther away from central grounds, so if you're one to roll out of bed five minutes before class, living here might be somewhat of a struggle!Malone: Due to the renovations going on at Old Dorms, some first-year students will be housed in Malone,...

North of Eden

May 24 12:04pm University of Virginia Magazine
In 1911, the UVA School of Law relocated from the Rotunda to Minor Hall, a building designed to meet the school’s growing needs. When a Law School alumnus came back to visit Grounds in 1916, the school’s move so distressed him that the poor man “never did look at the new building, but hurried away to look at the old,” this magazine reported. Anxiety is the ever-present companion of change at Mr. Jefferson’s University. Its designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site speaks to the enduring magnificence and authenticity of its Academical Village. But UVA is not Machu Picchu, an abandoned relic. As the University has developed, it has had to confront, like no other university, the paradox of evolving while remaining unchanged. Perhaps no development evoked this tension more than the creation of the North Grounds. The modernist structures built in the mid-1970s for the School of Law, Graduate Business School (later renamed Darden) and the Judge Advocate General’s School drew intense criticism from students and faculty, who worried about the ahistoricism of the buildings as well as the distance from the schools to Central Grounds. The design of the Darden School of Business campus, built in 1992, while neo-Jeffersonian, was not fully accepted by the University community, either. Top: A rendering of the Darden building, built in 1975 Bottom: The Law School building under construction in 1973 UVA School of Law Special Collections Library In his new book, The Law School at the University of Virginia: Architectural Expansion in the Realm of Thomas Jefferson, Philip Herrington (Grad ’07, ’12) examines what he calls “the push-pull between old and new” of the University’s history. He devotes half his book—which chronicles the migration of the Law School from the Rotunda to its current home—to the era when the Law, Darden and JAG schools all staked their futures on a move away from Central Grounds. “[This book] is not simply a discussion of the physical characteristics of the structures,” says Loren Moulds (Grad ’06, ’14), a librarian in Special Collections at the Arth...

Lights Out

May 24 10:35am University of Virginia Magazine
The tuxedo-clad Virginia men make their way into a jam-packed, adrenaline-filled Memorial Gymnasium. With dates on their arms, they hurry to find seats on the bleachers or standing room on the overhead track. The lights dim and a door swings open. A spotlight shines on sinewy figures emerging from the entrance. The crowd erupts. But moments later, there are no cheers—only the sounds of fighting. As the combatants in the ring let loose with a barrage of haymakers, the fans are barred from uttering a peep. These are the rules of this “gentleman’s sport.” Only when the bell rings after the three-minute round can the onlookers react to what they have just witnessed. And in those 1930s, what they saw was sheer domination. In the history of UVA athletics, boxing is the only team to go undefeated in consecutive seasons—from 1932 to 1936 the team didn’t lose once. Then, less than two decades after those dazzling heights, the sport was knocked to the canvas. Boxing was demoted to an intramural sport, eventually disappearing altogether. “It was a sad end to a proud tradition,” says Peter Schmidt (Col ’70, Darden ’74), who coached UVA’s final intramural teams in the mid-1980s. Programs from the annual Southern Conference tournament held at Mem Gym in the 1920s and 1930s. UVA Athletics Coach Johnny LaRowe built UVA into that national powerhouse. From 1932-36, UVA went 28-0-2, winning the Southern Conference tournament every year. As the football team struggled—it managed only two winning seasons during that decade—Grounds reveled in the boxing team’s glory. “It was the sport at the University,” says former boxer Mortimer Caplin (Col ’37, Law ’40). “The student body turned out every week we had a bout. It was just filled to the roof.” Fans became intoxicated by the action, according to Dr. John Risher (Col ’32, Med ’36). “Everyone loved it because we were winning,” he says. At the heart of this success was LaRowe, a former Marine who ran a billiards parlor on the Corner. According to UVA historian Coy Barefoot (Grad &rsquo...

Integrating from Behind the Scenes

May 23 6:35pm University of Virginia Magazine
When the University of Virginia intensified efforts to recruit African-American students in 1969, it didn’t hold back. Nor did it hide the sentiments of the few black students already enrolled. The Admissions Office distributed a pamphlet in which the Black Students for Freedom described the University as a “plantation school,” cited Malcolm X’s condemnation of “the American system of exploitation and oppression,” and counseled against enrolling simply “to foster integration for the sake of integration” or “to absorb or be absorbed by ‘White Culture.’” They exhorted potential applicants to a higher purpose: “The University of Virginia will be more meaningful to Black people—in fact, all people—if the Black students make it so.” Paul Saunier, 1967 Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library The unfiltered approach—asking black students to speak frankly to black students—was advanced especially by administrator Paul Saunier, the politically astute former journalist, campaign publicist and congressional aide charged with helping to integrate UVA. In an era better known for intransigence and strife, Saunier shrewdly favored consultation over confrontation, engagement over enforcement, straight talk over lip service. Saunier (pronounced SAWN-yer) died in February at age 97. He was remembered as an instrumental but mostly behind-the-scenes member of the group of administrators led by President Edgar Shannon who were determined to change the University from a nearly all-white and nearly all-male institution. Shannon hired Saunier in 1960, barely a year into his presidency. “Paul was involved in the discussion at the top level as to what needed to be accomplished,” says Ernest Ern, another of those administrators. Ern was dean of admission and later vice president for student affairs and senior vice president.  “It was more than obvious that we had to recruit.” It was slow going.  African-American students from the late ’60s recall Confederate flags flying at a restaurant on the Corner, though at least by then...

Four Questions for BOV student member Bryanna Miller

May 23 1:34am University of Virginia Magazine
Bryanna Miller (Col ’18) Dan Addison As the president of Black Student Alliance, a student assistant at Alderman Library and a member of the Honor Audit Commission, Student Council and the African American Alumni Engagement Advisory Committee, Bryanna Miller (Col ’18) doesn’t have a lot of spare time. But the Echols Scholar from Delaware—who was appointed the new Board of Visitors student member in March—found a few moments for Virginia Magazine. Virginia Magazine: What are some of the more pressing questions and concerns that you expect students to have for the Board of Visitors? Bryanna Miller: I think the general trend of increasing cost of higher education is something students are really concerned about. Secondly, I think, [is] the University’s response to national political events, but also state-level political events. We saw that last semester with the temporary travel ban and the University’s response. And finally, I think that students are very focused on the academic experience at the University. As we look at changes to the curriculum, as we look toward changes in enrollment size, as we think about generational turnover of faculty and the hiring of the new president—I think it’s on students’ minds. VM: How can you make a difference on the Board if you don’t have a vote? BM: It seems to me the nonvoting model works well because a student member is not responsible for pursuing his or her own agenda. The student member is responsible for presenting the spectrum of student opinion. I think, in that way, it allows the student member to be independent of political interest. I think not having a vote actually gives me more freedom to be kind of an arbiter of different opinions. VM: What do you do for fun outside of all the things at UVA that you’re involved with—any hobbies? BM: I spend 80 percent of my day thinking about UVA stuff, and I wouldn’t have it any other way [chuckles]. UVA is really my passion. It’s something I’ve come to love. I was really struggling with it my first year because of all the incidents that were happening [the murder of Hannah Gra...

Andrasko Takes Helm at Alumni Hall

May 22 4:36pm University of Virginia Magazine
Dan Addison Corporate executive and management expert Jenifer Andrasko (Darden ’10), a former U.S. Navy pilot, mission commander and NATO officer, will be the University of Virginia Alumni Association’s next president and CEO. Andrasko, 39, will be the first female president of the Alumni Association, which will have its 179th anniversary July 4. She emerged from a national search field of 114 applicants. What made her stand out: “Her enthusiasm and energy,” says UVA Alumni Association Board of Managers Vice Chair Meredith B. Jenkins (Col ’93). “Over the course of the process that deepened.” Andrasko comes to the post from global consulting giant Bain & Company, where she headed “Results Delivery,” keyed to helping organizations reach their full potential. An expert in leadership development and building management teams, Andrasko helped found Bain’s Leadership Center of Expertise. Prior to joining Bain, Andrasko served nearly 10 years on active duty with the U.S. Navy, as a P-3 pilot and mission commander, deploying twice in support of operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, as well as participating in NATO missions in Kosovo. Later, she served at NATO’s Allied Command Transformation, having significant operational responsibility for the alliance’s strategic and organizational initiatives. Jenkins says Andrasko comes to the association, and the University, at an opportune time. “We have hired a transformational leader just as the University approaches the dawn of its third century, mounts a major capital campaign and undertakes a presidential search of its own. Jen brings not just considerable management skill but also drive and enthusiasm as she leads the University of Virginia Alumni Association to fulfill its ongoing mission of serving our 225,000 worldwide alumni and engaging them with their beloved alma mater,” Jenkins says. {article\_sidebars\_1} Says Andrasko, “The University is at an inflection point, where there is potential for transformational change. With that comes tremendous energy, and I want to be a part of that.” Amid such a time of ch...
