"As we seek to build our creative economy, HackCville will play a crucial role in training and keeping talent here in Charlottesville."

Hear what our members have to say.

"HackCville provides a space to explore oneself in a number of ways and the community of people loves to embrace newcomers and help them grow. I have felt the skills I have learned through HackCville are invaluable as I prepare for the real world."

"I really enjoyed the actual skill I learned the most which has introduced me to something new I never would have learned otherwise. Seeing a bunch of random code and letters turn into an actual website is really cool, and a skill I now possess. By the end of the program I will have a personal site and will have worked on designing sites for some other cool challenges."

"There are a lot of different programs at HackCville, so at least one of them is likely to pique your interest and help you develop skills in an area where you might not be able to or have the resources to explore it at UVa. "

"I loved having a community I felt connected to. Having the houses available to just hangout in and having access to tons of cool opportunities was incredible. "

"HackCville opened me to a whole new way of thinking about myself, my skills, and my career goals. It also introduced and exposed me to a whole new group of insanely talented, driven, and inspiring people that have supported me and provided me with amazing opportunities."

"My favorite part about HackCville is learning a new skill with a group of like-minded but unique peers. The community feel and new friends are just the icing on the cake to the phenomenal program I was in this semester. I feel like I have skills I can continue using during college, (hopefully) in the workplace, and for my own enjoyment in years to come."

"The network of motivated people is unlike anything else at UVA. You can always find someone interested in something new and exciting which is inspirational and can come in handy."

"HackCville is a unique, vibrant community where people come from various starting points to learn to become better problem-solvers and future change makers. There is no place like it here in Charlottesville and it is increasingly becoming an integral part of the college experience for its members. "

"HackCville teaches you the skills you need to succeed in high-impact careers - skills that a traditional university education may not. "
