1.    What brought you to the Women's Center?

I was given a flyer at the fall activities fair about the Women’s Center, and I think it mentioned something about the internships they offer. I was really interested because I was looking for a way to get involved with something related to my potential career interests.

Our interns have been back for several weeks. Midterms are rapidly approaching! When I head out for my run in the morning now, there’s a hint of chill in the air. We’ve recently wished our Jewish friends a very Happy New Year. It’s hard to believe, when we saw the temperature in Charlottesville reach 90 degrees every day this past week, but fall is on the way.
