Guys & Girls: There are a lot of wealthy students at UVA, but there are also a lot of people who are paying loans in order to get a great education. There is a large social life. Athletes are friends with athletes and greek life is friends with greek life

Administration: Honor code is very strict, and majority of the students take this very seriously. The ones that do not are the ones that have to spend a few months away from the school.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: There is a large social life here, and I think that people can choose whether they want to participate in it or not.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I think that they offer a great amount of choices for class style, size and offerings.

4 College Senior

Academics: The professors at UVA are excellent. Although the workload is hard, I think that I am getting a great education here.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I think that this past year has shed light on the safety around grounds. The administration is doing a lot to increase safety and sexual assault.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: As a student who participates in greek life, I think it had a positive impact on my experience at uva. In light of the rolling stone article, it makes a lot of people at the university and in surrounding areas thinking negatively about greek life. Although there are parties, the greek system also raises money for organizations and does a lot of volunteer work.

Athletics: Wish student athletes not given special treatment

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students talk about the wonderful experiences and positive feelings they associate with UVA. The University has some of the most devoted alumni in the country. Of course, there are those who wished they had gone somewhere else and those who were turned off by things such as the lack of diversity, the prominence of Greek life, student naïvety, or the pretentiousness that is, in fact, present on campus. Those who really like UVA appreciate its traditions, the friendly and outgoing atmosphere, the beautiful setting, and the outstanding academic environment. Students definitely have their share of rough, sad, or aggravating moments at UVA, but when all is said and done, many claim that they couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.

There are so many different experiences here—putting together an unorganized, student-run play with remarkable self-motivated students, studying abroad, drinking wine and chatting with a favorite professor in his/her home, tutoring at a local school, or sunning out on the lawn with friends—that, in the end, are some of the many reasons why students are happy at UVA. If you come to UVA, be prepared to take the good with the bad. In my view, the positive aspects of the University outweigh the negatives, and the environment is as vibrant and intelligent as it was when Thomas Jefferson founded it well over a century ago.
