The Cavalier Daily
Serving the University Community Since 1890


Over the next few weeks, the University and Charlottesville establishments are hosting festive events to get students and community members in the holiday spirit.

Three festive events for the holidays

With Thanksgiving officially in the past, it is safe to say the holiday season is in full swing. The University and local Charlottesville establishments are hosting several events to put us in the holiday spirit.

The show's opening was inspired by the rebirth associated with chrysalides. 

Empowerment through fashion

Helping Advocate Rights Through Stories organized Empowerment Through Fashion this past week — a showcase in recognition of National Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Event organizers said the partnership between Relay for Life and Madison House was crucial in drawing a large number of students to the event.

Service never sleeps

Relay For Life garnered the participation of over 1,800 student volunteers Friday night through its partnership with Madison House.

The week's events focused on increasing dialogue surrounding mental illness and providing resources for students.

Fighting the stigma

Fight the Stigma — a mental health awareness week organized by Second Year Council — took place from April 6th to April 10th and aimed to rework preconceived notions surrounding mental health at the University.
