CVC is Family.

My favorite memory was when a couple other members and I stayed up late into the night preparing a send-off party for the graduating seniors. We had finals to deal with, and it was hard to stay motivated, but we stuck at it because it was a tradition and the seniors meant a lot to us. It was a long night but we had a lot of fun; that's CVC in a nutshell.
