WHAT I LIKED

I have gotten an incredible education and the opportunities for extracurriculars are tremendous. You will always be able to find activities and people that you connect with and will be able to find your home here. The Charlottesville area is full of different activities such as hiking, wineries, coffee shops, and plenty of thrifting and secondhand books stores. It's a wonderful place to have your college experience.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food needs to be improved. There's always construction going on which can be very disruptive. There are also issues with the fraternities and general lack of diversity and inclusion.

WHAT I LIKED

I appreciate how many different types of smaller communities are involved with the University.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food options in regards to dining halls lack a degree of quality and variety, especially for someone looking for cleaner/healthier options. I would also appreciate more connection between advisors and their students

WHAT I LIKED

Our academics are excellent, and the professors really enjoy what they are teaching! UVA also has a great social scene, so I appreciated the work hard play hard attitude. The school still comes first, but there is a healthy balance. I have been involved with Greek life, which is where I found most of my friends and community, but I really enjoyed my first-year dorm, too.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It is not the most diverse school, and it can be hard to find your community if you are a minority student in any way. There are lots of student organizations to help with this, but it can be hard when the school itself is not that diverse.

WHAT I LIKED

Like other colleges, UVA has its pros and cons. It's a world-class academic experience that will be very academically rigorous (especially with certain majors like Engineering ones, Commerce, Nursing, Pre-med, etc.). The college will be tough, it doesn't really matter where you go since you won't be able to simultaneously compare two schools. The UVA professors are usually very invested in your learning despite UVA also being a research university. It is also a lot more diverse than people put it to be. It is a place where I've felt welcome. The school spirit here is great, and it's always lots of fun to go to sports games.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is a lot of need for applications at UVA, whether for a campus job, major or extracurricular club. It breeds unnecessary competition. Despite the campus food not being stellar, it is still decent. If you ever are tired of it, Charlottesville is one of the best cities for food in Virginia.

WHAT I LIKED

I was ecstatic to learn that I had been accepted to the University of Virginia when acceptance letters first came out. After actually being there and living there for a year. I would say that I was in over my head. In hindsight, I believe I rushed into things. I thought going to the best school available to me from the jump would be fun and I could finally get away from my parents. Not knowing that It's a very difficult transition and if you aren't prepared for it, it can swipe you off your feet.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

#1 Concern: LACK OF LATE-NIGHT DINING. And I'm not sure if this was just in my head, but it also felt like the need to be politically correct is quite high at this particular institution.

WHAT I LIKED

I liked to walk and enjoy the view. If you are a minority student you will feel uncomfortable most of the time, so finding good groups of friends who do not have prejudice is essential to enjoying stuff. Overall, working out made life enjoyable, as well as hanging around friends.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There are many racist people here, whether they like to admit it or not. You will feel scared and alone many times, and not many people will understand how you feel because you will be surrounded by many people who do not feel the same fear.
