CIO Spotlight - Hoos Flying

Hoos Flying is a group that uses classroom knowledge to design, build, and fly a radio controlled airplane and competes in the International SAE Aero Design competition held at the end of each academic year. The design goal is to carry as much weight as possible while flying a single circuit around an airfield. During the Spring 2013 semester, the team finished 2nd among a field of 37 international teams and was the only US team to place in the top 5 at a competition in Fort Worth, TX


IMPT: Regarding Academic Spaces

Event Planning Services (EPS) is currently accepting single date requests for academic spaces. EPS will begin accepting weekly and recurring space requests on September 23, 2013, for events occurring between October 1st and December 6th.

Please remember that student organizations using academic spaces are responsible for maintaining the good order of the classroom and will be held accountable for any damage incurred during the event. It is extremely important that CIOs and CIO leaders respect the space, staff, and expectations for the use of academic space. Failure to do so can result in the loss of academic space reservations. If a CIO violates the terms of the Use of University Facilities policy, the organization may lose its space reservation privileges for a period of 12-months.

As a reminder, the following is not permitted in academic spaces:

  • Food and Drink
  • Loud Noise (music, speaking, etc.)
  • Dancing
  • Movies
  • Auditions
  • Activities that disturb the academic pursuit of the University or other groups in the building
  • Moving or rearranging furniture (unless it is returned to its original set-up at the conclusion of the event)
  • Occupying a space beyond the approved reservation times (prior approval is required to extend or alter a reservation in any way)

Important Notes for Performances & Rehearsals:

  • Rehearsals are only permitted in cases where the show is taking place within an academic space and it is within 2 weeks of the show date.
  • Musical and Theatrical performances are limited to Chemistry 402, Maury 125, Wilson 402, and Minor Hall and must stay contained within the room.
  • All performance-related requests must submit an amplified sound form. The reservation request cannot be approved without it.

Join the Student Activities Center Advisory Board to help enhance the CIO experience!

The Student Activities Center Advisory Board will meet twice a semester and is charged with providing student leader feedback about the operations, resources, and services of the Student Activities Center (SAC) and Media Activities Center (MAC).  As part of this charge, the Board will be asked to consider the following: the overall operations of the SAC/MAC, additional resources needed, promotion and marketing of the SAC/MAC, and the aesthetics/physical presentation of the Centers.  The group will also discuss resources and services that can enhance the CIO experience during the academic year.
Please apply here . The deadline is September 25, 2013 at 11:00 p.m.  If you have any questions, please email

Have you updated your profile for the new academic year?  If not, take a few minutes this week to update your atUVa profile.  This is how 1st years and other students find out about your CIO and what you have to offer. You can personalize, add pictures, and upload a header to your CIO’s profile. It is important to keep it up to date and provide a detail description of your CIO online.  If you need help updating your primary profile, check out Student Activities YouTube Channel to learn how.
