University of Virginia

UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA
The Univeristy of Virginia offers the resources of a major research university, but it fosters the intimacy, sense of community, and dedication to teaching and learning typically found at a small liberal arts college. One of the top-ranked public universities in the country, UVA is highly selective and attracts some of the nation's most promising students. Established in 1819, it remains faithful to the ideals of its founder, Thomas Jefferson, who planned its curriculum, recruited its first faculty and enrolled its first students, and designed and oversaw construction of its original buildings and grounds.
