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.

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.

    Wonderful place! Very rigorous course work, but student life makes up for it! Loads of fun on weekends, whether you stay in or go out. Also many extra-curricular opportunities to get involved in. Grounds is beautiful :)

    Been researching this school, it seems to be a good school for pre-med students and people who want to major in the sciences.

    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!
