The CVPA has Spring Fever and a competitive spirit. Radford University is publicly launching a new fundraising initiative April 17. For one week only, April 17 – 21, each college on campus plus Radford University Athletics will raise money for a project of its choice utilizing a new online crowdfunding platform. Each college and Athletics are competing to see which project can reach its goal first.

These include Reagan Burns, Suzanne Guppy, Holly Cline, Clara Heaton, Sean Kotz, Kevin Kwon, Kristin Machac, Kareem McCullough, Anne Nicholson, Halide Salam, Ken Smith, Knic Ulmstead and Shaun Whiteside.
