Hey everyone! There are a couple of important announcements.  First, this season we are doing IM volleyball and basketball, both co-rec.  Vote on the times below so we can make register.
Volleyball: (Do not worry about the dates, just times)
Also, get excited for the Winter Classic! It's a flag football tournament between all the Filipino Orgs in our district.  We will be having weekly practices, so look out for more info.  If you are interested in playing, sign up below!


What's good, OYFam!

We hope you all had an amazing break filled with much needed rest and relaxation. FIND's got a lot in store for you all this semester, most notably the D7 Football Invitation, FIND National Conference, and of course, Culture Night Season. 

With regard to the Football Invitational, the official date has been set for February 22nd at Virginia Tech. Be on the lookout for word from our Sports Chairs regarding practices. We played well last year, but Jasmine and I know that we've got the potential to take the trophy this year!

Second, Jasmine and I are in the process of helping to plan Conference and ensure that it will be brought to us here at UVa this year, so make sure you keep up with the WIO for updates. 

Finally, being that January's SFAS theme is Culture Nights, it's important to be aware of the fact that Culture Night Season is quickly approaching!

Get pumped for another round of outstanding performances by each of our beloved D7 schools, y'all.

Have a great first day of classes, everyone!

-FIND (Jor & Jasmine)
