“Just beautiful”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

We visited after our Monticello tour. What a beautiful campus! You can see how Jefferson modeled much of this campus after his lovely estate. They are remodeling but there is still much to see. The grounds are beautiful. If you've come to Charlottesville, you shouldn't miss this.

“beautiful campus”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

It is a lovely campus with beautiful buildings. It seemed like a vibrant learning environment. Our granddaughter is a student there and is very happy. She has a rather nice apartment.

Beautiful campus, founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819. The area adjacent to the campus offers great shopping and dining. A must visit for all Americans.

“Wait a while - LOTS of construction & remodeling!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We toured with our son who's a senior - the rotunda is covered with scaffolding & drapery, lots of other NOISY construction, but hopefully they said the rotunda reno will be done by 2014. Really nice campus but quite spread out - get ready to walk! Very informative tour.
