The great thing about UVA is that it is a public research university - meaning its resources attract the big names in most fields of study. This is great for you, the student, because you get to learn under such academics as Rita Dove and Larry Sabato. A caveat: UVA has a single sanction Honor Code. If you lie, cheat, or steal, you will be tried by a jury of your peers and if found guilty of a non-trivial offense, you will be expelled. Virginia expects a lot from her students academically, but if you put the time and energy into...

    UVA is the perfect combination of the opportunities of a big state school and the community feel of a small town! Students here really value their education but also love to socialize and have fun. We respect our honor code, our faculty, and each other!

    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.
