Open House Drive-thru with University Life Arlington

We know many of our Arlington students will not be physically on campus as much as they would like to be—so we are taking University Life information to the streets– literally! Sophie and Melissa from UL Arlington will be lounging on the Fairfax Drive sidewalk in front of Van Metre (look for the sofa!), wearing masks and ready to share all the great information and fun give-aways we are known for here in University Life. We will have the front parking spots blocked up for drive-up service, or you can walk up and chat with us from a comfortable 6 foot distance. You won’t want to miss this fun and educational event – RSVP today!
