The Virginia Athletics Foundation encourages student-athlete alumni to return to Grounds each year for a chance to reunite with former teammates, classmates and friends through the All-Sports Reunion or Homecomings. In even years (i.e. 2016, 2018, etc.), the All-Sports Reunion brings student-athlete alumni back to the University for a weekend of planned activities such as an all-inclusive tailgate surrounding a football game and sport-specific events. In alternating odd years (i.e. 2015, 2017, etc.), student-athlete alumni are invited to return for Homecomings Weekend to spend time with teammates. This provides a less structured schedule for student-athlete alumni to spend time on Grounds attending other University functions, as well as the football game, and creating their own informal gatherings with former teammates. Every year, regardless of the event schedule, VAF and UVA Athletics recognize ACC and NCAA Championship teams who reach their 10-, 25- and 40-year anniversaries.
