ANNOUNCEMENT: Student Activities Center & Copies for August 2012

As  leaders of a student organization (or as an advisor to student organizations),  here is an important update concerning access to the Student Activities Center (SAC) in Newcomb Hall. Please review this information thoroughly and share it widely with members of your organization.

The ongoing Newcomb Renovation has impacted the ability to open the SAC prior to the start of the fall semester. As a result, the Student Activities Center will open  on September 3, 2012.  From August 20, 2012 – September 3, 2012,  the Media Activities Center, located on the lower level of Newcomb Hall, will provide resources and limited services for student organizations.

We realize that the delayed opening  of the SAC has implications on student organization operations, especially as it relates to preparing for the Fall Activities Fair.  In talking with student leaders, we realize that many groups  rely on the SAC to make copies of flyers and handbills for the Fall Activities Fair. To help remedy this concern, we are asking any CIOs to submit their request for copies through an online form, which can be accessed HERE (or at: https://atuva.student.virginia.edu/form/start/11398). Please also note the following:

  • If a copy request is submitted by 11pm on Wednesday, August 14, the CIO will receive a 50% discount on the cost of the copies.
  • In order to have copies ready for the Fall Activities Fair, requests must be submitted by 5pm on Thursday, August 23.  (Copy requests between Thursday, August 15 – Thursday, August 23 will be billed at full price.)
  • Full details on this program be accessed at: https://atuva.student.virginia.edu/form/start/11398

The Media Activities Center (MAC) will open on Saturday, August 25 and offers a variety of resources to support CIOs. These resources include iMAC computers, printing, Adobe Suite for Advertising & Branding, and multiple work stations for small group meetings. Additionally, the MAC will be set-up from August 25 – 27 with additional resources such as paper cutters, staplers, and tape stations to help assist CIOs as they prepare for the Activities Fair.

We appreciate each CIO’s understanding and patience during this renovation. We believe the plan outlined above will provide minimal disruption to CIOs as they prepare for the Fall Activities Fair.

Again, thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to welcoming you to the MAC and SAC this fall.

Please contact studentactivities@virginia.edu with any questions or concerns.
