Save the Date March 2023: Here’s the March Short List For University City – What We Know about Events and Meetings

March 2023 University City News

From UCCA’s President Diane Ahern: It’s March … and we’re feeling lucky. We’re fortunate to have supportive UCCA members, active volunteers, and loyal advertisers. You are the neighbors who help support many of the events, activities and programs that make University City more than just a neighborhood.

Yes, there’s a lot going on in University City. UCCA is here to help keep you informed through our websites, print newsletters, community outreach, and public meetings. Scroll down for the March 2023 Save the Date Short List. 

But first, please keep in mind that while many publications and websites charge a fee to read articles and publications, UCCA’s University City News remains free as a University City community resource for all. If you can join UCCA or make a donation to help us, please do so at:
