On behalf of OYFA, I would like to thank all of the Fourth Years for everything; you guys have made our college lives so memorable and enjoyable. I wish you guys all the best in all of your future endeavors! 
Good luck to those who are finishing finals, have an awesome (and safe) summer, and see you all in the fall!
Much Love,




That is all. 

Good luck on your exams and enjoy your summer!




Hey OYFAm!

Thanks to all of you that came out to support FASA at Virginia Tech for their culture show this past weekend! It was another amazing show from our fabulous district. Speaking of our district… D what? D7!!! Keep thinking of a new chant and make a video of it if you come up with anything!

Also if any of you are considering running for a D7 executive board position, the elections will be June 8th at ODU beginning at 12 PM. Contact either Jor(jvt2de) or me(jap8ew) if you’re interested in any position and we’ll talk you through the details.

Position details are HERE

Thanks for all the support you’ve given us for the past month. We will be working hard this summer to make sure next year is the most FIND-tastic everrrr!

Hey OYFAm!!!

I hope you all are doing well on your exams!  A great study break for third and fourth years would be to fill out the Classy Advice, so just go ahead and click here for that!

Other then that, have a good summer and we can’t wait to see you at our events next year!

Hello lovelies!

The Mickey-D’s would just like to wish you GOOD LUCK on all your finals and have a FANTASTIC summer break!

I know what you’re thinking. “But Michael and Doan... What if I wanna have real talk over the summer with you guys? Can I have yo numbas?” Yes, children. Yes you can.

Michael: 571-527-9756

Doan: 757-215-6964

We’re actually quite lonely and never talk to anyone but each other so if you just want to talk about OYFA stuff or classes you’ll be taking or want to know about the ratchet things we’ll be doing over the summer, hit us up! <3

Trivia Challenge 
Be the first to answer back with at least one correct answer to be the next featured OYFAN! But wait! If you answer back with both answers by the end of this week (midnight on Sunday), you will be entered into the Week In OYFA Raffle for a chance to win a small gift at the next general meeting!

1. When I was little I slipped on a silly band and busted my chin open. Guess Hoo?

2. Who gave the Philippines its name and who is it named after?

This week's Featured OYFAN is Michael Ramada!

Tell us about yourself! 
Hey everyone! My name is Michael and I'm a first year on the pre-med track looking to major in Economics and possibly a minor in Biology or Chemistry. I'm 3/4 Filipino and a quarter Chinese, born and raised in northern Virginia, and I love hanging out with friends, watching movies, and listening to R&B.

What does a typical day for you look like?
A typical day for me usually starts off by waking up late and rushing to class, then chilling with my friends at the MAC or Clark and grabbing a meal at Newcomb. I love keeping up with friends and enjoying their company, which usually leads to no productivity and/or late nights. Afternoons and evenings are usually spent either studying or at meetings, and the process repeats itself. Maybe if I have time I'll hit up the gym to play some pick-up basketball or volleyball on the sand courts.

What do you love about OYFA?
I love OYFA because I feel that it's a place where anyone can feel that they belong somewhere and that they are cared for and appreciated. We do our best to maintain that sense of family and togetherness that we need, and we're such a diverse group in terms of personalities that you never get tired of the people you're with. OYFA's made my first year here at UVA an awesome experience, and I hope the next three years will be as fun and amazing as this one!

Answers to the previous trivia questions:

A message from the Recording Secretary:

Hello Family!

As the year is almost over, this week's WIO is the last one for the semester! I look forward to starting it up again in the fall when our OYFAmily is back together.

I hope you all have a fantastic break, and I can't wait to see everyone in the fall! (Fourth Years, you guys better visit!) 

Stay cool, OYFA :)

Your Recording Secretary,
Christine Tran
