2014 Student Send-Off Parties

 

Please join the UVaClub of Washington, DC as we welcome the Class of 2018  into the University family.  Incoming and transfer students, incoming parents and UVaClub leaders are invited to this special celebration. Light refreshments will be served.  sendoff2011

 

Each year, UVaFamilies works with UVaClubs around the world to coordinate Student Send-off events for incoming first-years, transfers, returning and graduate students as well as parents. We invite you to attend a Send-off event in your area this summer.

 

Student Send-offs are social gatherings for students and parents ranging from backyard barbecues to formal receptions. These events are a great opportunity to meet and ask questions of current students, parents, alumni and University staff. Our goal is for you to meet other U.Va. students and parents and begin building a network within the U.Va. community.

A Tale for the Time Being
by Ruth Ozeki

 

Book Description:

In Tokyo, sixteen-year-old Nao has decided there’s only one escape from her aching loneliness and her classmates’ bullying. But before she ends it all, Nao first plans to document the life of her great grandmother, a Buddhist nun who’s lived more than a century. A diary is Nao’s only solace-and will touch lives in ways she can scarcely imagine. Across the Pacific, we meet Ruth, a novelist living on a remote island who discovers a collection of artifacts washed ashore in a Hello Kitty lunchbox-possibly debris from the devastating 2011 tsunami. As the mystery of its contents unfolds, Ruth is pulled into the past, into Nao’s drama and her unknown fate, and forward into her own future.

 

Full of Ozeki’s signature humor and deeply engaged with the relationship between writer and reader, past and present, fact and fiction, quantum physics, history, and myth, A Tale for the Time Being is a brilliantly inventive, beguiling story of our shared humanity and the search for home.
