Director: Hannah Murdoch, Fifth year (still here),

Hello hello! My name is Hannah Murdoch and I am entering my final year at UVA studying Systems Engineering and Economics.  Originally from Chicago, I have lived in 7 places in the past year and a half, including Washington D.C., New York, and London.  Most recently, I spent my 4th year studying at the London School of Economics and have become UPC’s resident expert in Western European hostels.  As a director, it is my goal to offer leadership opportunities to all  members and create a strong sense of unity within the Connections committee.  Don’t be surprised if my love for travel, photography, and strong coffee leads us to a sunrise hike in Cville at some point this year!

UPC Connections seeks to find new ways to link UVA students to each other and the surrounding Charlottesville community.  In the past, the committee has focused heavily on co-sponsorships with CIOs on-Grounds, something it remains committed to this year.  The upcoming school year also offers a unique opportunity for Connections to expand its vision to reach a broader student audience.
