Jefferson was very proud of the University of Virginia. He was so proud it was 1 of 3 things he wanted to be remembered for and are included on his tombstone. (along with the Declaration of Independence and Virginia's Statute of Religious Freedom.)
I toured the campus with my daughter who was visiting colleges. We got some historical information but not as much as I would have liked. I suspect, but am not sure, that UVA may have a "historical/visitor tour." This would be more benefitial from an architectural and historic standpoint. Our tour was led by a student as was more designed to give a student's view of college life today at UVA. Thomas Jefferson and his ideals are fully embedded in the University and this was apparent visiting the campus.
I enjoyed my visit to Monticello the next day more from a historical and Jeffersonian standpoint. His plantation is amazing and well worth a visit. It is very complimentary to a visit to UVA.
