Welcome to VCU

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!*

Prizes will be awarded throughout SOVO Fair, so make sure to listen carefully for your name while you learn and explore. You must be present to win any prize, so plan to join us at the SOVO Fair Friday, August 25 from 3-6 p.m. at the University Student Commons.

*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.
