Get Involved - ELI's Virtual Student Union (VSU)

Have you heard of ELI’s VSU? VSU stands for Virtual Student Union, and if you’re an ELI student, you have unlimited access to this site!  This online hub has been built to help keep ELI students connected outside of their courses. Using the VSU, you can start online clubs, discuss life and topics of interest with fellow students, and also hang out!  Here are some of the Virtual Student Union’s features:  

· Discussion Den: talk to other students about study topics, discuss current events, connect with other students who are new to online learning and so much more.
· The Quad: In the Quad, you can start an Interest Group, listen to music with other students in the Music Lounge, or play free online games or joinone of our fantasy sports leagues in the Game Center.  
· Newsroom: The Newsroom is your center for all campus news.  We have links to ELife, ELI’s Student  Blog here, as well as the ELI Bulletin Board. Don’t forget to check out the NOVA Fortnightly and the NOVAChronicle, as both are written by NOVA students.
· Events: Keep checking our Events calendar to find out about our next webinar or get-together. We will post all upcoming events here, including times and registration links.  
To get access to all areas of the site, you will need to sign-up by clicking “Connect!”, then Register” on the VSU homepage.  Once you’re registered, feel free to update your profile and connect to the Virtual Student Union through Facebook too! If you have any ideas, suggestions, or need help with the site, please email us at
