The UVA Club of Southwest Virginia and East Tennessee is dedicated to engaging alumni, parents and friends of the University. The club offers a variety of programming throughout the year including:
- Networking events
- Game watching parties
- Educational programming
- New student outreach
- And more!
We invite all alumni, parents, families and friends to join us at our next event.
Volunteer for a Committee: The work of the club is made possible by volunteers like you who participate in our active and fun committees which include: Membership, Programming, Scholarships, and Schools.
Please click on the committee you are interested in joining to communicate directly with the committee chair.
In our fourth year of coordinated activities, the Club has hit its stride. The membership, participation in events and fundraising are ever increasing. We conducted our signature events, which continue to raise the profile of our Club and interest in the University in our region.
However, we need your help. I challenge each of you to contribute to the Club in whatever way that you can, whether it simply be attending an event or joining as a member. But as we attempt to expand our Club into all areas of our expansive region, I encourage those of you in areas outside Abingdon and Bristol to volunteer as officers or chair a committee. Please contact me if you are interested.
