About Hoos Connected
UVA attracts students from all over Virginia, the U.S., and even the world. Consequently, every student that comes here has a unique perspective and experience. Hoos Connected at UVA brings together these diverse perspectives to discuss what we think is the most important aspect of life: CONNECTION.
What brings us together? What can keep us apart? What do we have in common beneath the surface?
In Hoos Connected, you'll meet with a small group of peers (6-10 students) each week to engage in activities and discussions that get at these important questions. Each group is led by two trained, upper-class student facilitators, who guide you through conversations that go beneath the surface level.
What’s great about Hoos Connected is that it’s so easy – this is one of the few places on grounds that does not require any preparation (no applications, no homework, no papers, no pressure to sound like the smartest, most put-together person in the room). Just show up and have interesting conversations. The best part? You receive 1-credit (CR/NC) just for participating.
First Years, Second Years, and Transfers are all eligible to join a group and receive course credit!
Groups are composed of your peers (e.g., all First Years, all Second Years, or all Transfers). If you live on-Grounds, you'll have the option of being in a group of people from your dorm or with people from other dorms. Get to know the familiar faces in your dorm better or expand your social circle beyond dorms -- whichever you prefer!
Groups meet Mondays 4:00-5:15 pm, Mondays 5:30-6:45 pm, or Tuesdays 5:30-6:45 pm.
