University of Virginia Reviews
I absolutely love everything about the University of Virginia. I visited several colleges before making my decision and knew that UVA was the place for me. It has a great reputation, the grounds are beautiful, and being part of a sports team is an added plus and has many rewards. My team is like family. Also, the area around the university, is very inviting. There is so much to do with lots of dining and shopping. I know that having a UVA degree will help me in the future in finding a good job. I can't picture myself to be anywhere else! This University has it all!
I liked the curriculum and what was going to be offered, I felt this would provide the broad foundation she needed—in topics that included organizational management, policy, and budgeting—to become a more well-rounded public servant. The program has fulfilled my expectations, thanks in part to the professionalism and expertise of the faculty. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to making sure that students get the most out of the courses they teach. Thanks to the program, I feel more confident pursuing positions of more responsibility knowing that I can meet the challenge.
Awesome school!! Great professors!! Beautiful campus!! Great students!! Who wouldn’t love a university founded and inspired by Thomas Jefferson? In its bicentennial year UVA goes from strength to strength. It’s newly announced School of Data Science is the first in the nation and the first new school at UVA in over a decade.

New building and renovation of existing facilities in conjunction with the UNESCO classified academical village mean students have amazing spaces for study, leisure, and engagement.
