While orange and yellow mountains, apple picking at Carter's Mountain, and trick-or-treating on the Lawn are just a few of the many trademarks of Charlottesville during the fall months, nothing is better or more unique than the Virginia Film Festival.

At the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center, we stand with survivors of gender-based violence. The Women’s Center works to promote a supportive environment at UVA by actively engaging in discussions about social change, connecting with state and national advocacy organizations, and perhaps most importantly, by supporting the many students whose leadership among their peers is essential to bringing about a safe and healthy University community.

Hannah Trible, Co-Coordinator of the Body Positive program, represented the Women's Center last week at the 2016 National Eating Disorders Association Conference in Chicago. Our Body Positive Coordinator attends the NEDA Conference each year to improve our knowledge of the innovative programs, tools, and techniques available to promote prevention and raise awareness about eating disorders. We were excited to send Hannah to Chicago and anxious to hear about her experience at the conference.

Having just arrived six weeks ago on Grounds, you start to hear it everywhere: you need to start signing leases for the next year, or you will be left out.

In the rush to find that perfect spot, or perhaps out of fear of being left without choices, many students –especially first and second years—sign leases with people they do not know well, for apartments that may not be nearly as great as they sounded when their friends first told them about them.

Yes, renting off Grounds can be an opportunity to make new friends, learn adult skills, and explore Charlottesville.
