Don't forget your tickets!

Swipe to Win

Swipe your VCU IDs at Welcome Week events, which will enter you for a chance to win prizes at the Student Organization and Volunteer Opportunities (SOVO) Fair on Friday, August 25. Prizes include iPads, flat-screen TVs and more. Swipe at 10 events (two of each of the five categories) for a chance to win the Grand Prize: one semester of free undergraduate in-state tuition!*

Welcome Week Raffle prize winners will be revealed on the Welcome Week website, Facebook and RamGuide during SOVO Fair on Friday, August 25 between 3-6 p.m. Winners DO NOT need to be present at SOVO Fair and will be contacted via email with further instructions on how (when and where) to claim their prize.

*Free tuition is based on the full time in-state tuition rate and is awarded in the spring semester 2018. If the prize winner is enrolled less than full time, the award will be based on the number of hours enrolled and awarded at the in-state rate. As with all financial aid, the award may be adjusted if the prize winner exceeds financial need or cost of attendance.

Congratulations to the Welcome Week 2017 Raffle prize winners!
