SFS at Days on the Lawn

"Days on the Lawn" are events held every spring that provide admitted undergraduates and their families the opportunity to visit Grounds and experience U.Va. firsthand. This year, there will be eight events: March 30 and April 3, 6, 8, 9, 15, 17, and 20. During each event, the students learn about the various undergraduate colleges and schools, enjoy tours of Grounds, and engage in informational panels and presentations.

Student Financial Services representatives will be on hand at the Resource Fair in Newcomb Hall from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., then participate in the informational panel for parents from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. SFS staff will answer questions about billing, payment, financial aid, and more to help newly admitted students and parents negotiate the often new and foreign terrain of university financial life. They will also take walk-in appointments to meet with attendees one-on-one. This is an important outreach activity for SFS, as it introduces our office to our newest cohort of students and is an opportunity for us to help them get on the right path from the very start.
