Congratulations to Nicolas Dalton for winning the #PlayonGrounds photo contest for Session H!
With Session H in the books, IM-Rec Sports wrapped up another successful slate of Summer Orientation Fun Nights at the AFC. It was the final night that we ran our #PlayonGrounds photo contest, and sorting through some of our best entries on Twitter and Instagram was no easy task. Nicolas’ enthusiasm stood out in his Instagram post, and he walked away with the $25 gift card to the UVa Bookstore. Nicolas was happy to talk to me about the evening and UVa overall.
What was your favorite part about Fun Night?
My favorite part about tonight was the free pizza and free soda, that’s all the motivation I needed to come here.
Don’t forget your free t-shirt too. And your gift card! You made out pretty well tonight.
You’re right, I made out really well!
What are you looking forward to most at UVa?
My main motivation for coming to UVa was the academic prestige, but I’m also really excited about the clubs I’m going to participate in, the friends I’m going to meet, all the classmates I’m going to be with for four years and all the people I’m going to meet in my BME major. I’m expecting a lot of new social interactions. There’s definitely a lot look forward to!
Lastly, how are you planning to Play on Grounds once you get here?
I want to play some intramural tennis, I’ll try out for the quidditch team, and I’ll also be doing some Rubik’s Cube speed solving competitions.
That concludes our series highlighting the winners of our #PlayonGrounds contest, but you can check out the previous features here!
