There is so much to do at UVA. Most people are involved in one club or another and it's easy to find people you get along with. You never have to be bored unless you want to be and the academics aren't so overwhelming that life is miserable.

Workload isn't too terrible as long as you manage your time well.
College Sophomore 2013-12-08T18:26:08Z
The professors are awesome. Everyone is very openminded. Registration is easier here than at most schools. I can almost always find a class that fits my schedule, only language classes (especially Spanish) fill up quickly.

It's hard to find parking but few people actually drive to class. Living off campus and trying to find parking is near impossible unless you buy a space.

After first year when most people move off campus, they get rid of their meal plans or significantly reduce them. Dining Dollars are the way to go because you can use them outside of the dining halls. People tend to complain that the food is over-salted, the salad lettuce is wilted, etc.

Everyone loves Charlottesville. There is a ton to see and do and the locals are pretty awesome and love UVA.

You pretty much have your typical four seasons here. The summer can be pretty miserable because of the humidity though.
College Sophomore 2013-12-08T18:19:02Z
Breaking the Honor Code is a pretty big deal because you can be automatically dismissed if found guilty of cheating. Overall though, I personally have not had any problem with the strictness of the administration thus far.

Health & Safety:
There isn't a lot of crime on campus. The non-emergency police are great though and most of the serious crimes reported are committed by people who don't go to our school.

Campus is huge so a lot of people take the bus, which is free for students. Charlottesville is also a big city so there is additional public transportation available as well. A lot of people do have cars though because it's more convenient if you have a job or like venturing farther away in Charlottesville. However, having a car is not a necessity as pretty much everything you need can be found on the corner or a bus ride away.

Printing is a little pricey but a lot of people bring their own printers or live off campus in apartments that offer free printing. The network is a pain to log into at first but afterwards, runs pretty smoothly. 99% of people have personal computers.

I'm not really aware of the financial aid provided by UVA as I received all outside scholarships.

Guys & Girls:
UVA has a lot of very, very attractive people. It has a reputation for having students that are stuck up, but that's surprisingly not the case. The fact that people here are ridiculously good looking has not made them jerks. Most people are down to earth and friendly. Over all, there is a little bit of a preppy dress code (especially noticeable in warmer weather), but you will always find people wearing a variety of clothes. Some people go to class in polos and others in pajamas.

Not a lot of people do drugs and the few that do probably don't do anything harder than pot or, very seldom, Molly. It all depends on the group that you roll with most of the time. A lot of people choose not to drink but people who party a lot definitely do.
College Sophomore 2013-12-08T18:02:13Z
People party a lot mostly during the second half of the week (Thursday-Saturday) but Tuesdays are also a random party night. None of them are too far away and if you're into the bar or dancing scene, you'll have a few options on the corner.
College Sophomore 2013-12-08T17:59:55Z
No matter how well our sports teams do, people are pretty supportive of them. Most people go to at least a few football games a year and students get free entry to them. There's also a lot of support from the surrounding community. People love their Virginia sports!
College Sophomore 2013-12-08T17:57:43Z
There are tons of off-campus places to eat, especially on the corner and rt. 29 has just about anything you could want. Downtown Charlottesville and the corner both have lots of ethnic options if that's your thing.
College Freshman 2013-12-03T23:35:22Z
Sports events are free for all students. There is a lot of school spirit.
College Freshman 2013-12-03T23:33:45Z
There are all sorts of different people here. You can find people with similar interests and goals.
College Freshman 2013-12-03T23:30:46Z
Getting all the information on time is difficult and its a lot of work, but its worth it.
College Freshman 2013-12-03T23:29:25Z
They are strict about important matters and are not looking to punish people unnecessarily
College Freshman 2013-12-03T23:26:11Z
Everything is very good, except that the wireless internet can be slow at times.
College Freshman 2013-12-03T23:23:50Z
There are plenty of things to do around Charlottesville
College Freshman 2013-12-03T23:22:21Z
The buses are free and pretty nice. Sometimes the buses do not show up at the scheduled times which is frustrating.
College Freshman 2013-12-03T23:20:36Z
Many first years drink too much and do not know when to stop.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
