During our business trip my wife and I walked the campus of the University of Virginia. The grounds and landscaping were beautiful as well as the architecture. We have friends that have attended school here and without a doubt this is one of the better schools we have been to.

UVA is right in Charlottesville and we just took the time to drive through the campus. The buildings are just gorgeous. The main building with the rotunda which is so famous in photos is undergoing a major renovation and was covered in scaffolding. I am sure it will be lovely when done. We were very surprised at the size of... More

I was very impressed with the service, appt promtness, friendliness, concern, & care experienced at both of these Centers. While it takes a bit of time to get an appt with my doctor, I found it worth the wait with the exam/evaluation being unrushed. Obtaining an appt with Imaging was faster and service/care/friendliness equally commendable.

We went to an all-day seminar at UVa on the Civil War, and spent our breaks strolling this beautiful campus. It's humbling to think that Thomas Jefferson founded this university almost 200 years ago (1819). Well done, TJ.

My son works here, and it was our first visit to grounds. All I can say is that he is so lucky to go to work in such beautiful surroundings. Unfortunately the rotunda was undergoing some repair work, but there was still plenty to see.

We always enjoy strolling thru the UVA campus, especially Thomas Jefferson's 200 year old "Academical Village" with the rotunda, main lawn area and gardens inside the serpentine brick walls surrounded by the unique housing for some students and faculty.

My son graduated from UVA. He received a fabulous education, and grew as a a young man. I think he would have stayed forever if he could. Despite the bad press lately, UVA is a great blend of a melting pot of high achievers and the room to grow, as college should be. But aside from al that, it is... More

Beautiful grounds full of history. The Rotunda is still under construction, but still plenty to see. Take a tour! Lots of good sports options - take in a game if you happen to be there, although basketball and football tickets can be hard to come by depending on who they are playing.

Even though the Rotunda is off limits and being repaired right now the campus is still beautiful. My wife, kids and I enjoyed walking around it while students were scurrying to class. If you have never been to Charlottesville before be aware that this town has to have some of the WORST traffic among small towns in America. It was... More

Note: the rotunda is under construction for many more years. The campus is lovely. Students were friendly and the town is charming.
