As the calendar turns to August, we could officially get into preseason UVA sports mode. It's an exciting month as football season nears, students converge back on Charlottesville, and most notably, the Rotunda Roundup returns.

If you have something you think should be included, feel free to let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
