uva is a great school with lots of history, traditions and spirit. life on grounds is rigorous but engaging. the area surrounding charlottesville is very nice.
Sidney from Charlottesville, VA
University of Virginia is a top-tier university with high quality education and positive, safe, and fun environment. Also, University of Virginia is the only college in the nation that is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Because University of Virginia is at the heart of Charlottesville, there are many interactions between the school and the local Charlottesville community that have been proven to be beneficial for both groups.
