Virginia is a magical place where blue mountains form, unicorns roam, fairies fly overhead, and glitter falls from the clouds instead of rain. In this utopia there could only be one perfect school—The University of Virginia.
Though Virginia might not actually consist of mythical creatures, its natural beauty does make it feel like a veritable heaven on Earth. University students here are given the opportunity to choose between a variety of schools and programs, and with the help of academic guidance counselors, students can narrow their options to find the major that suits them best. Developing a relationship with professors also helps students feel comfortable asking questions and actively engaging with the material. Though lecture halls might be huge and professors might seem inaccessible, by being assertive, going to office hours, and choosing smaller classes students will find that most professors are actually very approachable and willing to help. UVA Cavaliers shine not only in academics, but in athletics as well. There is nothing like the bond that forms over football, and the school’s special traditions surrounding the sport create an atmosphere of pride and fun. Before games, students gather outside of Scott Stadium, girls in pearls and boys in ties, for tailgating parties.
Ooh, Heaven is a Place on Earth
Ooh, baby, do you know what that’s worth? Ooh, heaven is a place on Earth--and it’s called Charlottesville, Virginia. What makes this place so magical and heavenly? It is surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, rivers, ponds, hiking trails, and green, green grass. In addition to the unparalleled landscape, the town is home to many activities and cultural attractions. The Downtown Mall is a great place to listen to music, see art, find study cafes, and test out good restaurants and bars. Charlottesville is artsy and funky, but still retains that small-town conservative feel. Because the town has something for everyone, 57% of UVA undergrads choose to live in the city. Most tend to rent in areas like Rugby Road or 14th and 15th Street. The farther away from campus, the cheaper the rent, and with a simple meow you can catch the CAT (Charlottesville Area Transit) to class.

Bars Just Around The Corner

The Corner is the main area where students frequent bars like Baja Bean, where you can enjoy karaoke and trivia nights. For dancing, try Club 216; for beer pong, check out the Greek scene around campus. House and apartment parties are regular weekend pastimes, so the underage crowd doesn’t ever have to feel left out!
