A University in Virginia that students attend in order to brag on a website about how good their school is. They typically do this in order to keep up their overinflated views of themselves while they sit in their apartment sipping on a fine glass of chardonnay, merlot, or Zima, as they have just finished their one hour of homework for the day.

Students of this false-Ivy League school enjoy the finer things in life, such as living off their parents' credit cards, driving expensive automobiles their parents bought them, going to dinner parties with strict dress codes, and wearing suits and bowties to sports that are traditionally viewed by fans wearing comfortable, utilitarian clothing such as T-shirts, sweatshirts, and jeans.

In addition, they promote Thomas Jefferson to an exalted level unseen by even avowed Libertarians, and insist on calling their rival school "Va-Tech," despite nobody else in the world, not even "Va-Tech" students, referring to the school by that name.
Asshole 1: "Hey, did you watch the football game the other day against Va-Tech?"

Asshole 2: "No, I was too busy getting wasted on three bottles of Zima at that big dinner party last night."

Asshole 1: "Ah, well we lost as usual, but all the babes were looking mighty fine in their pearls and sundresses! I impressed them with the $200 bowtie I bought last week with daddy's credit card. Oh well. At least we're still decent at all the sports that make no money for the school because the American public doesn't care about them."

Asshole 2: "Boy, I'm glad we go to UVA so we can be pompous assholes together!"

Where someone goes if they have a very small penis but want to make up for it by bragging about what school they went to. Though often the average UVA student can't think of any reason to go to UVA other than academic ranking and because Thomas Jefferson founded it. It doesn't matter how ugly the campus is, how weird the student body is, or how lame the party scene is as long as "TJ" founded it. But people only hate UVA because they're just jealous ...right?
UVA student: I am so awesome since I go to UVA, I am so much better than everyone else because my school was founded by Thomas Jefferson.
Normal College Student: Wait, why do I care about Thomas Jefferson? And oh yeah you got another shipment of "natural male enhancement" in the mail today.

The University. Thomas Jefferson's University. Oft disliked by applicants without merit. Stunning history and current status. Oldest engineering school in Virginia. First true public, non-religious college in the United States.

Traditions. Leaders. Class. Thomas Jefferson lives.
You went to UVA? I applied but I could not get in, so I went to (fill in the blank)

The University of Virginia was founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819. UVA is the number two public school in the country and is ranked 23rd nationally at the same level as Georgetown. This beautiful school is rife with tradition and beauty. All one needs to do is walk around grounds on a spring day to see way all of the students at this storied institution love their school. The traditions at UVA are interesting and unique. From streaking the lawn down to the statue of Homer then kissing him on the bum and then running back up to the rotunda to say goodnight to Mister Jefferson to steam tunneling in the underground system of tunnels which brings heat to the buildings around grounds. Students here are committed to learning and improving the world around them. Some famous graduates of the University of Virginia include Katie Couric, Robert F. Kennedy, Tina Fey, Woodrow Wilson, and Tiki Barber. Students can be seen at all hours of the night at the 24 hour University library, Clemons, studying and writing papers. These students committed to excellence, have a no cheating, lying, or stealing policy institutionalized in the honor code and upheld by the honor committee. This single sanction code ensures Professors can trust their students and that students can trust each other. Those members of the University community who cannot abide by the honor code are removed from the University. Most students love the honor code however and would not get rid of something that makes their school unique. The University of Virginia is one of the best schools in the world and the premier undergraduate experience.
Person One: What did you do last night?
UVA student: Pulled an all-nighter in Clemons
Person One: Wow! Why?
UVA student: Because I had a paper due yesterday, another paper due today and a mid-term on top of all that. But I got it all done.
Person One: Wow, that seems tough, especially with spring break last week. You must be really smart
UVA Student: Yup, that's why I go to UVA

A university that is loved by all those who attend it, and anyone who makes it sound bad is obviously jealous that they didn\'t get in.
Rejected from UVA1: UVA sucks they\'re nothing but rich preps and faggots.
Rejected from UVA2: Yeah I know. Hey let\'s go heat up a bagel and have sex with it.
Rejected from UVA1: Sure! I\'ll go get the butter.
