I am writing to tell
you about the 1st Annual Winter Carnival and the series of events that
will take place as part of it. The first event, a Rail Jam scheduled
for 7:00 p.m. tonight has been RESCHEDULED for Monday March 1st, same
Other events include an Adventure Race, an A Capella concert with
all of the A Capella groups, Racquetball Tournament, Dodgeball
Tournament, Snow Sculpture contest, Chili Cook-Off, and many more. To
view the full list of events you can click on the "Winter Carnival
Schedule" link on the page below:
of the events require folks to put teams together, and several do not.
Put a team together and see if you can win one of the sweet prizes in
the Chili Cook Off or the Adventure Race or the Snow Sculpture Contest.
Either way, there are plenty of fun events to watch. Maybe you'll be
lucky enough to get yourself one of the elusive Winter Carnival
Almost all of the events are free and many of them will feature
giveaways/prizes made possible by our sponsors: Ben and Jerry's, the
UVM Bookstore, Sodexo, Skirack, and the Office of the President.

honor of town meetings, your SGA is hosting a Town Meeting Day for
students on March 2nd from 12-3pm in Ira Allen Chapel. We are hoping
to have a strong turnout of students to discuss UVM’s budget, tuition,
student comprehensive fee, town-gown relations, student advocacy,
academic quality, and more.
There are many initiatives occurring such as the "Spires of
Excellence" and General Education, and we want to make sure that these
programs align with student priorities and education expectations. The
SGA needs to hear your priorities and what your vision for the
university looks like for the short term and long term.
We are very excited to host the event and hope that students will participate!!
