University of Virginia Reviews
It has been an amazing home away from home! Everyone is focused not only on academics but growing as invididuals. My only critique is housing— as a first year you are not promised AC, and hopefully that will change. Also some professors are too focused on their research rather than their classrooms. The local food scene is great, and Dinning makes sure to support local farmers and promote sustainability!
The employees are so nice and everything is clean and productive! Definitely love it here! Our classrooms are simple with the right amount of tech. The professors get stuff done in a timely manner and aren't too hard on students. The courses are challenging and prepare us for the real working world. Personally, I am premed and the counselors have done a great job of preparing me for medical school apps.
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!
