The Fralin Student Engagement Council

Student Engagement Council

The Fralin’s Student Engagement Council is a select group of students dedicated to deepening and diversifying student engagement with the museum through innovative programming and events. The SEC seeks creative, committed, professional, action-oriented students with skills in marketing, public relations, content development, outreach, event planning, and graphic design, who are passionate about the museum and its potential to enrich the lives of UVA students. 


In 2017, the SEC created Fralin the Bull, a large-scale replica of The Fralin’s 3000-year-old Cypriot bull rhyton pictured here. Where is Fralin today? Coming soon to a classroom near you! Follow Fralin the Bull on his adventures across Grounds, and then to Final Fridays at The Fralin!
