McIntire Welcome Series
McIntire Welcome Night
Exploring Business Careers: Offered by Commerce Career Services, Exploring Business Careers focuses on career opportunities in business. This event will take place April 2, 2020.
Commerce Connections Transfer Student Orientation: This academic orientation program is designed exclusively for McIntire's incoming third-year students who transferred from another college or university to UVA. Commerce Connections Orientation will take place Aug. 19-20, 2020.
Third-Year Orientation: Orientation offers all incoming students an opportunity to meet McIntire faculty and fourth-year McIntire Mentors, learn about academic expectations in ICE, and hear about opportunities for study abroad and student involvement in the Commerce School. Third-Year Orientation will take place Aug. 24, 2020.
Ellen Whitener Memorial Third-Year Block-Building Day: This annual event, which pairs third-year ICE block students and faculty teams against each other, started in 1998 as a student idea and is better known as the Kickball Tournament. In 2009, the event was renamed in memory of Ellen Whitener, former Professor and Senior Associate Dean, to honor her contributions to the McIntire School and the Charlottesville community at large. The lively and often competitive event includes a community service project and is a great way for third-year students to get to know their classmates early in the fall semester; the winning student block has bragging rights for the entire year. The Kickball Tournament will take place Sept. 4, 2020.
