What is your overall opinion of this school?

The grounds are beautiful and local community of Charlottesville is amazing. There are always things to do, great restaurants, hiking, breweries, festivals etc. The introductory classes (especially pre-med requirements) can be challenging but the upper level classes are much better. Overall, an excellent school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My experience at the University of Virginia has been one of absolute self-discovery. It was on a rainy day that I first stepped on Grounds; a bleak and blurry scene that did little to diminish the NeoClassical architecture--the red brick buildings, the Corinthian columns, Amphitheatre, and Rotunda--or the beautiful greenery around it. I realized then that U.Va. promised an experience full of culture and history. Through tradition and exhibitions--of student art, U.S. historical and literary documents, indigenous art and history--my perspective of the world was broadened. Furthermore, on and off Grounds, I found myself involved in the sociopolitical discussions regarding both Charlottesville and United States. I explored the history of the relationship between Charlottesville and the University, and discussed them with both other students and professors. I learned that this relationship between these two communities presented a microcosm of the pervading issues of the country--and world--at large. Such discussions not only frequently took place among students but within the classroom as well. It was inspiring to discover the professors’ and university’s active participation in these conversations; specifically, in historical reflection. Surrounded by both intelligent and passionate community members, I discovered a lot about my own interests, and those led to the different student-led organizations aI joined on Grounds, and in Charlottesville. These organizations namely involved mentoring and working with children, engaging with community issues, and news editing and writing. I owe it to the University of Virginia’s character and location, unique history, and staff for not only providing an enviable education, but with worldly experiences that revealed who I am as an individual.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I thought that coming to a huge school like UVA would be overwhelming and intimidating, but the groups I’ve joined and the organizations I’ve been a part of have made it feel smaller and more like a community. The city of Charlottesville meshes amazingly well with students and creates an engaging, thriving community that I love being part of, especially when we’re all still celebrating a National Championship.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the University of Virginia is a great University with a great value. There is always something going on and with the variety of clubs/ activities, I believe there is something for everyone. Charlottesville is the perfect college town with all of the amenities and conveniences you could need, a great restaurant scene, gorgeous scenery, and plenty of outdoor activities. One area that I feel could be improved is career development and advising for Arts & Sciences students (in contrast, this is a strength for the Engineering and Commerce Schools). There are definitely opportunities and on-campus recruiting for Arts & Sciences students but it is not always as well-organized, there are generally fewer specialized events, and typically requires more effort from the student to seek out what they are looking for.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Virginia has a long history of excellence. I am a second generation Cavalier and am very proud to be part of this community. Virginia is top ranked in multiple categories, the professors are accessible and the culture is, for the most part, a positive one.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UVA is an awesome school and in a great location. There are so many resources available to students you never feel alone in anything. There is an extracurricular group for everyone, so it doesn't matter what you like, you'll fit in. The academics are challenging and the professors are (mostly) amazing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Difficult school with stressful environment, but definitely worth the time and effort and money you place into it. Very well rounded school with aspects for everyone to choose from, such as sports to politics to just hanging out with your friends. Overall, wonderful school in a nice, busy, quiet college town.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I know that when applying to colleges, a lot of people have the misconception that they have to find the perfect place where they will fit in. I was guilty of this myself. The truth is, that no matter where you go to school, you will always find that group of people that you fit in with even if it isn't the whole school. A lot of people might be scared off from UVA due to the culture of elitism, extreme competitiveness, and overall snobbiness, at least that's what I was afraid of. UVA is one of the top public schools in the country in academics for a reason. The professors are at the forefront of their fields and some of the most profound teachers in the country. I am so glad that I chose to go to school here. Even though I don't identify with the stereotypical southern belle attitude that seems to be prevalent here, I have found my group of people and activities I fit in with, and don't think that I could be getting a better education anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Going to the University of Virginia is easily the best decision I ever made. The students are kind, there is something for everyone, and it truly feels like a place where important things are happening. In my first year, research experience was accessible and influential. Professors are incredibly talented and pretty easy to reach outside of class. For the most part, you get a sense of a collaborative culture amongst students, rather than aggressively competitive.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love UVA. It has its ups and downs, like any college... But here's the thing: no matter who you are, what you study, whether you drink or not -- UVA takes everyone in and has a community to offer for literally anyone. Like sports? Join any of the colossal number of intramural or club teams. Like DnD? Join DnD club! Love Theatre? 4 Completely run student organizations (First Year Players represent!). Obviously there's no doubt about how incredible UVA's academics are. If the social scene is what you're afraid of, don't let it dissuade you when you make your college decision :)!
