I love that UVA has so many traditions and random quirky things about it. Like our secret societies...really, who does that? they're so mysterious, but insanely cool. and things like streaking the lawn, or telling a secret on the whispering bench, or steam tunneling. theres so many opportunities for adventures. theres also A LOT that is ALWAYS going on. ppl are really active here and organize sooooooo much ishhhh to do. there's a lot of school pride, and its always fun to go to a football or basketball game. you dont even have to like the sport to have fun and go wahoo crazy. c-ville is a pretty fly town...there's the downtown mall, the corner, and just lots of places to eat and hang out.
people work really hard here. the classes are pretty challenging. i think the classes are geared towards learning for its own sake. i'm in the a-school and the student-professor relationship is very different than the rest of the university...but we're really close. like other architecture schools, your studio is about twelve people and you work closely with your professor. our professors always have us over their house for dinner at the end of the semester and its always a lot of fun.
most uva students are from northern virginia..then if not there, richmond, or virginia beach. its always fun to meet out-of-state students, and especially international ones. ppl assume that uva kids are rich, but i thing theres a lot of diversity in financial backgrounds. from my experience theres a lot of middle class student. students here are really athletic...on any given day you'll always see many students running. everyone is pretty skinny and its kind of rare to see heavy students walkin around. there are probably cliques with athletic teams, fraternities, sororities, u-guides, and jeff society. grou[s at UVA
