Black Alumni Weekend 2024
April 19, 2024–April 21, 2024
Black Alumni Weekend (BAW) is a biennial celebration at the University of Virginia that began in 1985 as an admission recruiting effort hosted by the Walter Ridley Scholarship Committee. Since its inception, BAW has helped foster community among Black Hoos through educational lectures, career networking opportunities, and social activities. BAW is one of the nation’s premier alumni programs, bringing more than 1,500 alumni and friends back to Grounds to reconnect with each other and the University.
