    You get what you pay for and sometimes a little more. There are many great classes they offer here at Uva-Wise and you have to be vigilant to find them so you can ensure you get the best education you can here. Not only are the classes great, there are also many activities that the many clubs here host that help the students escape the mundane school life and have a little fun.

    As one of the cheapest schools for in state students you will definitely get your money's worth. The only thing to consider is if you aren't much of a Let's roam the country side kind of person, you may not enjoy it here. Things have a slower pace than in big cities because it is a small town, but still all the fun.
