The University of Virginia's College at Wise was the best academic choice I have ever made. I visited and fell in love. Set in the mountains is a beautiful and secluded campus. A university that makes every single student feel special and included. It is truly amazing the effort put in by all of UVA- Wise employees. Despite the college student count being quite small, it gives every young adult or adult to succeed in making their dreams reality. Everyone is so friendly and UVA-Wise is the reason behind it all. Its expected of all students to be the absolute best version of themselves. The university goes out of their way to insure everyone feels comfortable and accepted. They throw events promoting different cultures, religions, races and the LGBTQ community. Thank you UVA-Wise for giving me a reason to wake up and get out of bed! I have found my passion in this crazy world in which we live and I could not be more grateful.

Hi everyone! I love the small campus of UVA-Wise! I can wake up late and still make it to my class on time. In addition, it is a beautiful campus, that is gorgeous in the fall! However, there is not much to do. It is in a small town that does not contain much so you'd have to go to Kingsport or Bristol to find the nice restaurants and shopping. We have some fast food and lots of hiking if you are into outdoor stuff. There are also lots of fun things to do on campus, and many trips that you can take with the student activities board!
UVa-Wise is pretty rural, but there are some big cities not too far away. Many of the professors are super helpful and are always available to the students. I love seeing how the college has been growing since I've been here. The dorms are pretty good, but there are many off campus housing that students use too. Overall, this is a great school!
