Today the Office of the President issued the following letter:
Buena Vista, Va.—In response to the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 global pandemic, Southern Virginia University has made optional the previously required standardized test submissions for incoming students.
Effective immediately, the main academic building on the campus of Southern Virginia University will no longer be known as Durham Hall.
Each year, at the close of Southern Virginia University’s annual Commencement exercises, current students and any alumni in attendance are invited to gather on the steps of Main Hall to serenade graduating seniors with the American folk song and beloved University hymn, “Shenandoah.”
Buena Vista, Va.—Three Southern Virginia University students presented papers at a regional Phi Alpha Theta National Honor Society conference on Mar. 27-28, where one of them—Connor Mason, a senior history major—placed second.
