Stay connected with Region VIII on social media.

Region 8 is GR8! Region 8 is the Mid-Atlantic Region, ranging from Virginia north to Pennsylvania. We are a medium-sized region full of character and made up of a close knit community of professionals, graduate and undergraduate members. We have traditionally held a Regional Conference between late February to early April. Traditions for undergraduates at the Regional Conference include the Returning Orientation Leader Institute (ROLI), an undergraduate case study competition and the swag swap. For professional and graduate staff, Region 8 aims to hold one drive-in event each fall and a NODA grad intern meet-up each summer. We are also working to enhance the professional experiences available during, as well as outside of, the regional conference. It is no surprise that “Region 8 is GR8!”
