For many students, this weekend will be a chance to celebrate before classes end and exams begin. Please plan to be safe and to be responsible.
If you attend the Foxfield Races, you will notice a dramatic increase in law enforcement over previous years. As you know, this is not a U.Va.-sponsored event. The three agencies increasing their presence at the event – the Virginia State Police, the Virginia Department of Alcohol Beverage Control, and the Albemarle County Police – are taking this measure because of numerous disturbances and instances of illegal, dangerous and offensive behavior that have occurred in the past. These three agencies have said they will be monitoring the crowd even more closely this year and more aggressively apprehending those who engage in illegal or dangerous activities.
I urge you to think about your safety and that of your friends during this time:
Getting Medical Help
We care about you. Please make sure your chance to celebrate does not end in tragedy or regrets. Be responsible and be safe.
