Launch Weekend

On the evening of October 6th, 2017, the university celebrated the historic Laying of the Cornerstone by Jefferson, Madison and Monroe with an opening night ceremony entitled the Bicentennial Launch Celebration.

In partnership with University Arts, it was an evening of performances and celebrations to commemorate the first 200 years and envision the next 200 years here at the University of Virginia. 

UVA Today featured some of the many highlights of the weekend.
