Looking for a good reason to spend a blissful, long summer weekend on the Grounds of the University?
I’m told there are still a few spaces left in the U.Va. Office of Engagement‘s annual Summer Jefferson Symposium (modeled after the successful “Summer on the Lawn” series that was formerly run by the School of Continuing and Professional Studies), to be held June 21-24. “Jefferson’s Love of the Written Word” features Jefferson experts, including U.Va. history professor Peter Onuf, and U.Va. President Teresa A. Sullivan. There are lectures, tours, meals and receptions, and participants have the option of staying on Grounds at Brown College. (You can read the whole schedule here, and register here.)
The event is part of the Office of Engagement’s Lifetime Learning program, so if the Jefferson Symposium doesn’t work for you, you may want to check out some of the other options.
