Thank you very much for the UVA Express. It was very amazing and helped me as well as other student to be familiar with C-Ville.

UVA Express’ is just fantastic, especially if you’ve flown from across the world, you’re tired and hungry, and just want a smiling face to welcome you into a completely new environment.

UVA Express was very helpful because it was my first time traveling to the United States. I was by myself (without my parents) and I was still confused about the transportation system. UVA Express is not only cost – effective, but also the most convenient and safe way to reach the university. My parents felt at ease sending me abroad because of the service UVA Express provided.

After traveling literally halfway across the world on a 24-hour plane ride, there is nothing better than a heart-warming welcome from the volunteers of UVA Express. It was the first time I ever stepped into the United States; thanks for easing my anxiety and for making sure that I arrive safely in UVA.

I was traveling alone and my parents were happy to know that I would be greeted at the airport. I think it is a very useful program especially for students traveling alone.
