The classic style of the campus was beautiful and so much history. There was construction on site while we were there, but that is like every university campus.

We could not tour the Rotunda or the other buildings in the main part of campus as they were closed for renovation. The campus is beautiful, but without being able to go inside of these, we would have skipped visiting the campus.

I visited the University last week. I was a beautiful sunny day, it was orientation day for parents and new students, the atmosphere was very festive. I really enjoyed the architecture of this historical university.

I come from well over 1200 miles away, and its worth EVERY cent I pay to get her. The technology and staff this hospital employs is the best money can buy. While... More

Shared a beautiful day walking through the university and town area with my daughter. The university and surrounding part of the city were very clean and rich with history. Several really nice cafes nearby too.

Having spent a couple of years in graduate school at the University of Virginia, I have a clear bias. But the deep history and beauty of UVA is attractive to all and a must see during college visits. The grounds of UVA are my 2nd favorite in the US after Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH and just ahead of Stanford... More

Attended the biggest event at the John Paul Jones Arena. Planned ahead and bought a parking pass to ensure a space close by. Easy to get to.
