Hoos First Look is an annual three-day, two-night fly-in/gas-reimbursement and academic enrichment program in the Fall semester, running from Friday to Sunday. Everything, including meals, transportation, housing, activity materials, and miscellaneous items will be provided to 20 low-income/first-generation, rising juniors in high school. Due to the ongoing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on in-person gatherings, this year's Hoos First Look program will be entirely virtual. The reimagined program focuses on giving prospective students a taste of college life by providing them with resources on the college-application process and financial aid/scholarships, the opportunity to build strong relationships with their cohort and mentors, and the knowledge to achieve academic and personal success, ultimately inciting their interest in UVA.
