Come join us for the 10th annual Susan Sandoval Memorial 5K for Ovarian Cancer Awareness! The event is held annually at Sugar House Park, and this year will be held on Saturday Sept. 10 from 8 a.m.-10 a.m. The event began in 2007 in memory of Susan Sandoval, a nurse at LDS and Primary Children’s hospitals, who battled ovarian cancer. Many event participants have been touched by ovarian cancer in some way, whether they come to honor the memory of a lost loved one, support survivors, and/or come out to support the cause. Participation in the race not only honors Susan Sandoval’s memory, but also the struggles of all who have been touched by gynecologic cancer.

The event is sponsored by the University of Utah Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the funds go to the Ovarian Cancer Research, Awareness, and Education Fund.

Register now at Sandoval5K.UofUMedicine.org or contact Natalie Moore for more information.

POKÉMON GO UNIVERSITY OF UTAH TOUR


PokemonGoTour
Prospective students invited to special campus tour designed to showcase campus while catching Pokémon

The Office of Admissions at the University of Utah is excited to announce an all-new campus tour experience for prospective students: The Pokémon Go Campus Tour at the University of Utah.

Pokémon Go has changed the way people interact with technology and has helped people discover new places and meet new people, and the University of Utah has become a popular area in Utah to “catch ’em all.”

“We’re excited to find an opportunity to connect prospective students to campus and take the general, everyday campus tour and offer something incredibly unique,” said Scott Kirkessner, assistant director of Admissions at the U, who oversees campus experience. “So far, we’re among the first few universities to offer this as a visit option, and we think a lot more will follow suit.”

Prospective students are invited to participate in a Pokémon Go campus tour on Aug. 4 and 11 at 5 p.m. Participants will tour campus and hunt the Pokémon that roam the University of Utah. The events are free, but space is limited. Register today to reserve a spot. Click below to register.

Aug. 4, 2016 – 5 p.m.
Aug. 11, 2016 – 5 p.m.

Faculty and staff,

The Center for New Student & Family Programs invites you to join speakers President David W. Pershing and Dr. Sandi Pershing as the university welcomes first-year students and their families to the campus community. The fifth annual New Student Welcome ceremony will take place Saturday, Aug. 20, at 10:30 a.m. in Kingsbury Hall. This energetic event will feature student leaders Liz Morales and Daniel Rueckert as they share their Utah signature experiences, and Dr. Martha Bradley-Evans, senior associate vice president of Academic Affairs and dean of Undergraduate Studies, as she gives a faculty lecture.

A picnic will follow on Presidents Circle, so please dress comfortably for the weather as you informally meet members of the incoming class of 2019. More than 1,000 new students and their families joined us last year, so be sure to wear a university nametag if you have one. Shuttles will run continuously from the Rice-Eccles Stadium parking lot, where attendees can park for free. For more information about the New Student Welcome and other Welcome Week events, download the New to the University of Utah app or contact the Center for New Student & Family Programs at orientation@sa.utah.edu or 801-581-7069.
