Hear what our members have to say.

"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. "

"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."

"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."

"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."

"Getting to know the people in the community has been by far the best aspect of my time at HackCville. It is motivating and inspiring to be surrounded by those who are constantly hustling while also trying to innovate in whatever they are doing."

"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."

"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 provides an awesome community of talented and passionate peers and a welcoming clubhouse in which to do work or hang out. Overall, it's an awesome community filled with bright people who like to get shit done, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for exactly that."

"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. "
