“Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of
body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of day…”
The greatness of this University ultimately depends on the caliber of the faculty and student body. The mission of the Admission Office and the UVA Club Cavalier Admission Volunteer program is to find and attract to the University students who will benefit from the educational experience offered here, contribute to that experience and then go on to lead lives filled with achievement and satisfaction. We also make every effort to see that these students have chosen their college wisely and that the University is, indeed, the best choice for them. Our responsibility, therefore, is to both the University and to the prospective students.
In the process of undergraduate recruiting, informed and energetic Cavalier Admission Volunteers are of tremendous help. Alumni can convey to students the academic excellence, commitment to student self-governance, and physical beauty that make the University of Virginia unique.
We thank you for agreeing to work with us as a Cavalier Admission Volunteer. Your efforts will be invaluable to us and to the students you reach. This Handbook will describe CAV policies and procedures and explain the ways in which you can serve the University as a volunteer.
