Located in the charming town of Charlottesville (pop: 200,000), UVA offers endless academic and extracurricular choices in a challenging environment with strong school spirit. There are seven undergraduate schools, including separate schools of business and engineering and over 65 majors to choose from. On UVA’s large and beautiful campus (known as “Grounds”) designed by Thomas Jefferson, students are called “first years” and “second years” rather than freshman and sophomores, to encourage life long learning. Lucky “fourth years” have the opportunity to live in a room along the coveted “Lawn” -- the center of the Academical Village -- where firewood and a rocking chair are provided. At UVA you’ll find secret societies, numerous traditions, an honor code administered entirely by students, rigorous classes, a strong commitment to global education, and the opportunity to be a Wahoo!
