University of Virginia

The University of Virginia offers the vast intellectual resources of a major research university, but fosters the intimacy, sense of community, and dedication to undergraduate life typically found at a small liberal arts college. While it is public, and welcomes women and men of every background, it also is highly selective and attracts students who seek challenges. Students' motivation to achieve is matched by a culture of mutual support, openness, civility, and above all, integrity and trust. With its balance -- between cutting-edge scholarship and first-rate teaching, between rigorous academics and rewarding activities -- U.Va. offers an undergraduate experience with few equals.
