What is your overall opinion of this school?

UVA is a college known for the College of Arts and Sciences. The academics are really good ands there's a large variety of class sizes. There are a lot of good professors and you learn a lot. The food here is not good and the campus is quite isolated but other than that, it's like a normal good college.

It's a beautiful campus with amazing academics. The students are happy, smart, and inclusive for the most part. I really recommend attending the University of Virginia. One of the biggest things students complain about is the quality of food at the dining halls. The food isn't great but at least that keeps the weight off...

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am an incoming freshmen to the University of Virginia so my knowledge is somewhat limited, however, my countless visits and student orientation have given me a very positive image of the university. The students and staff of UVA that I have encountered are all helpful and kind. Whether it be providing me directions to the library or advising me on what classes are best to take, they have provided me assistance that has made my experience entering the school pleasant. UVA also provides its students with countless resources when they are in need. They have countless deans that are available after an appointment on most days ( they also have walk-ins with the "dean of the day"), financial advisors that can help students look for scholarship opportunities or give advice to someone struggling to make payments, counselors that are available around the clock for when students are in crisis and student advisors that offer assistance to their peers based on their own experiences. UVA really makes it so that its students are set up for success. The social scene at UVA is also something of note. There are countless cafés and diners that offer students the opportunity to socialize and network. That doesn't include the hundreds of clubs and students organizations available for people with different interests. Overall, I believe the University of Virginia is a great school flush with opportunities to help students thrive and grow academically, socially and mentally.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Virginia is a lively, exciting, and interesting place to go to school. Just like every school, it has its good and bad sides. Like most schools, the food and the lack of affordable, off-campus housing is frustrating. The lack of diversity and cultural understand, as well as the ever changing University leadership system also causes a lot of controversy. However, what makes UVA unique is the way the students respond to these setbacks. Student resilience, activism, and learned understanding has changed the school in drastic ways, even in my short three years. Student have led protests have helped increase wages for University employees, helped interview and select board members, professors, and our new University President, and have stood up against racism, as eyes turned towards the school during the summer of 2017. Student action has led me to love UVA more than I thought I would. As for our athletics? We're the best. Our amazing football games, our basketball team, and the 24 NCAA championships that range across almost every team says enough. Our continued athletic and academic excellence has allowed UVA to remain as a top-ranking public university. It is hard to be a student-athlete in the Batten School of Public Policy and Leadership. In other words, I'm working two full time jobs at the same time. Both my team and my major push me past all of my limits. During finals week, it is easy for me to hate almost everything about UVA. The course load, the expectations and demands of professors and coaches can be daunting. Though exhausting, I know that I have become a better person because of it. I can handle adversity, while also maintaining my composure and intelligence better than I ever thought I could. Though UVA needs to become a more diverse, and accepting school, I know that I can help do that with the skills this school has taught me.

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.
