Note from President Sullivan
a beautiful – and busy – autumn it has been here at UVM.
It’s hard to believe that we’re already past the midpoint
of the semester! It seems as though it was only a few
short weeks ago that we welcomed the Class of 2021 with a
spirited Move-In Day and all of the events of Convocation
weekend. Thank you to the many staff members who helped
greet our newest students and their families with a warm
the start of this semester, we opened the state-of-the-art
Central Campus Residence Hall and its wonderful dining
facility offering farm-to-table foods and open-style
kitchens. The dining hall is open to the campus community,
and while there is often a line out the door, the short
wait is worth it for the excellent food and the
opportunity to engage with students from across campus. I
highly recommend that everyone on campus experience the
new dining hall at some point this semester to see, and
taste, what the buzz is all about. Continue

Bazaar Bake Sale Sign-Up
is Staff Council's biggest one of the year - it helps to
build community here at UVM, and the money we raise
