The University of Virginia-Main Campus is a Public Ivy founded in 1819. Considered a “very high research” institution by the Carnegie Foundation and ranked #3 in Top Public Schools by U.S. News & World Report, admission is highly selective. The campus is known for its Jeffersonian architecture originally designed by its founder, Thomas Jefferson.
UVa is a wholesome campus, even the weather reflects it! We have strong academics, good programs ranging from art-based to sports-based, a huge student body that you can choose a trusty friend group from, and not to mention beautiful, huge old trees that give wonderful shade in hot months and add beautiful colors to the scenic campus during fall. I rate the University highly, as it seems to hold everything--upbeat and diverse student body, beautiful campus--grounds--with a cool historical flare, and renowned academics that provide you a competitive edge during your future career-search.

The University of Virginia is an excellent school for prospective students seeking a challenge. UVA presents a traditional atmosphere for personal, social, academic and professional development. The school's reputation is well deserved and I have been thoroughly impressed, during my first semester at the university.
