To the University Community,
The University is preparing for its last home football game of the season against North Carolina on Thursday, Nov. 15 at Scott Stadium. An invitation to host an ACC Thursday night game on ESPN provides an opportunity to showcase the University nationally. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m., but impacts will begin much earlier. I write to provide you with information about plans for this game.
Although a weekday game poses significant logistical challenges, the University is committed to maintaining a regular schedule for all operations on Nov. 15. No classes will be cancelled and patient care services will be provided as usual. A team is working hard to mitigate the game's impact on students, patients, employee work schedules, traffic and parking. We appreciate your willingness to work with us to help execute a successful event plan for everyone involved.
Parking, Bus Routes, and Road Closings: As has happened in the past for Thursday night games, several parking lots in the vicinity of Scott Stadium must be vacated by 4 p.m. and UTS bus routes will be impacted by the traffic management plan. Every effort will be made to accommodate special parking and transportation needs of faculty, staff and students after 4 p.m. Parking & Transportation (P&T) has posted information about lot closings, alternative parking arrangements, bus routes, and road closures. By October 31, P&T will send individual emails to each permit holder directly impacted by the game with suggestions for alternative parking on Nov. 15.
Academic Classes: The office of the Provost is reviewing academic needs. Any faculty member with academic credit-bearing activity beginning or ending at 4 p.m. or later will receive further information from the office of the Provost via email. We will try to accommodate faculty whose courses end at 4:45 p.m. Other faculty members involved in a credit-bearing activity who need to remain on Grounds will need to vacate their parking space by 4 p.m. or park in an alternate parking area. (For alternative parking, click here.)
Employee Work Schedules: Departments are authorized to use discretion to determine the appropriate staffing levels to maintain services on Nov. 15. For those operations that can support it, managers are encouraged to utilize modified schedules, including the use of annual or compensatory time or any other appropriate measure that allows employees to modify their shifts while still attaining 40 hours during the workweek.
Contacts: The success of our planning efforts relies on clear communication with faculty, staff, students, and our community in the coming weeks. I ask that you help us by identifying potential problems in advance. Contact one of the persons below to report specific needs, make suggestions, or ask questions:
Academic Division Employee Leave Schedules

Despite its challenges, a weekday game is a special event for many persons in our community and a unique opportunity to highlight U.Va. nationally. I am grateful for your understanding and support as the Cavaliers prepare to host the Tar Heels at Scott Stadium.
Vice President for Management and Budget Sheehy approved distribution of this message.
If the game is at 7:30 pm, I don't know how much that will affect townies trying to come in and park. Newcomb will be a $10 flat rate, so I'd suggest against that. Given that, here are some suggestions on my part...
1) Try Bonnycastle anyway (given performance this season, attendance might be low enough so that there isn't a problem in that lot)
2) Park at U-Hall (free, and even more likely to have open spots) and take the Green Route to Newcomb.
3) I dunno lol. Here's a parking map for some other spots to try. I'm partial to C5 (if it isn't immediately filled at 5:00 pm).
Karaoke on Thursday! (Maybe?) by bwbScram (in News) - Monday, October 1st, 2012 @ 10:46:45 PMTo give people some time to prepare, I'll just put this here...
Edit: Okay. We're still waiting for a confirmed room reservation, so stay tuned.
Edit 2: In case you are not on the mailing list, we are indeed doing this tomorrow. Sorry for the delay.
Graduation Party 2012 by Julie-sama (in News) - Thursday, May 3rd, 2012 @ 7:45:03 AMGreetings Caine,
We have a large number of people graduating this year, and would like to give them the proper send off that they deserve. As such, an informal get together will be held at Peaches and Gradon's place on Saturday May 5th, starting at 8pm. This is a BYOB event, so as not to tax the gracious hospitality of our hosts.
Currently we have volunteers for a batch of the Tom. We also have a meat dish of some kind, an appetizer of some kind, something vegetarian, a desert of some kind, and what ever else people bring. My suggestion would be for those of you who plan on drinking/aren't underage banned, bring some sort of spirited drink and or mixer. For the young ones among us snacks, food, and non-spirited beverages are also appreciated.
I know this falls during finals, but hopefully many of y'all will be able to come on out! Come on it's a Caine Graduation party AND Cinco De Mayo. You KNOW you want to come play with us ;).
Look forward to seeing y'all there!
CAINE 2012-2013 by Strategos Folken (in News) - Friday, March 16th, 2012 @ 5:44:57 AMAlright everyone, I give you the officers for next year:
Congratulations to everyone who ran! I expect great things next year.
Superb Owl Party by miki_sei (in News) - Friday, February 3rd, 2012 @ 8:23:55 PMI talked to a couple of people last night about hosting a Super Bowl party at my place on Sunday. Seems like enough people were interested that it was worth making it official.
I've already sent out a few invitations via Facebook, so you can check that out if you haven't already. I don't have a whole lot of space, but if you're really interested in coming and you haven't been invited, then post ITT and I'll PM you with details or add you to the Facebook event page.
P.S. There will be serious football-watching, so don't come if you can't stand 4 hours or so of gridiron.
