4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in new dorms and they're the absolute best. Spacious, clean, all around awesome.

Greek Life: I'm not involved in a Pan-Hellenic sorority, but 40% of the student population is in a fraternity or sorority. There's no pressure to be in one, but the Greeks certainly have an upper hand popularity-wise.

Athletics: UVA athletics are amazing. There's a reason we won the Capital One Cup for 2015.

Athletics: UVA basketball... enough said.

GO HOOS!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are numerous presentations and modules that students are required to participate in, but I wish the males had just as many if not more, since more often than not they are the perpetrators of sexual assault and harassment.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Again I prefer not to grant perfect scores, but overall I am extremely satisfied. There are still moments when I wonder whether I chose the right place for me, and I feel as if I'm missing something, but I love it here.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Again, I like to avoid perfect scores. I hear the career center is great, but I have yet to use it. We also have a website with job and internship opportunities of which I've only scratched the surface, but it seems like a great tool

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I'd put it's the best, but I try to be reserved when it comes to giving perfect scores. I love the housing I currently inhabit; it was my first choice.

Greek Life: I think people care too much about greek life. I don't think it's bad, but there are so many stereotypes and rumors revolving around it that the larger population often receives the wrong impression or thinks poorly of those who participate in greek life.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: People care a great deal about athletics, particularly football and basketball. They are widely attended and prevalent on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: MY only critique is finding diversity within the school and finding my core friends.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The safety ambassadors that stand around the corner at night make me feel much safer.

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.
