Alumni Association Launches Online Message Board
U.Va. sports fans have long flocked to online message boards — most prominently those maintained by The Sabre — to discuss what’s on their minds.
Now the U.Va. Alumni Association has launched its own version to discuss all things related to the University. This morning, an email sent to alumni announced the opening of Alumni Forum, “an online venue for you to discuss topics and events related to the University of Virginia in an open forum. You may post a topic for discussion among fellow alumni and comment on other topics of interest.”
As of this writing, there were already threads on honor at U.Va., the political biases of faculty members, the SACS accreditation warning, campus ministry outreach and the role of dorm construction in the rising cost of tuition.
Let’s hope U.Va. alums can exchange views with civility, rationality and good humor.
