Founded in 1819, the University of Virginia is one of the most amazing schools in Virginia, and the country for that matter. UVA is the only North American college or university designated as a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, which means it is preserved as a "site of outstanding cultural or natural importance to the common heritage of humankind." Located in Charlottesville, VA, rated one of the top cities to live in America in 2004, UVA is consistently at the top of the public school rankings list. UVA is situated near 'the Corner' which is home to a multitude of restaurants, collegiate merchandise shops, and bars, including 'the Biltmore,' which was rated the number one college bar in America by Playboy.com. UVA is also home to over 30 national fraternity chapters and 16 national sorority chapters. UVA's grounds have been graced by such public figures as Queen Elizabeth II, Desmond Tutu, the Dalali Lama, John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Ted Kennedy, and Franklin D. Roosevelt. UVA also attracts many major performing artists, namely the Rolling Stones, the Roots, Dave Matthews Band, and Eric Clapton. The Virginia Cavaliers have won 16 recognized NCAA National Championships, 13 of them since 1980, with at least two national titles each in five different sports.
In summary, I can't wait until the fall to go back to UVA.
Just about every other school in Virginia likes to bash UVA kids for being 'pretentious' and 'snobs.' In other words, they get called out for thinking they're better than everyone else. Well, if you went to the school in Virginia with the most stringent admissions requirements, best overall athletic program, most beautiful campus and coeds, most successful and famous alumni, the most storied social scene, that was founded by Thomas Jefferson, and all that happened to be in what was voted the #1 city to live in in America, well you'd think you were the shit too.
-ESPN's college review
The University of Virginia, also known as UVA, is one of the premier learning institutions in the world and widely regarded as the best educational bang for your buck in the nation.
a college filled with ultimate, spoiled, pompous assholes, who never worked a day in their lives, who refer to dead prez Thomas J. as "TJ" and call him their best friend, and who swear everyone who isn't at their college regrets not being there.
normal person: so how was your weekend?
uva ass: well TJ and I spent our weekend at the dog show, then we went shopping for new shirts...we must keep the collars popped. Ha. Ha. I am done laughing.
normal person: wtf??
uva ass: ohh silly goose, you wouldn't understand, it is a uva thing.
Otherwise known as "where fun goes to die", UVA is a major university full of the most arrogant assholes that you will ever meet. UVA students are also somewhat confused about certain college aspects. For instance, NORMAL people do not wear sundresses/pearls/ties to any sort of event other than a funeral, graduation, a party at the country club, or a ride on daddy's yacht. This ESPECIALLY means sporting events, i.e. football games. Secondly, UVA students do not seem to understand that a student who is in their first year of college is a Freshman, NOT a first-year. You are not in England, so don't act like it. In addition, UVA students seem to think that thier founder, Thomas Jefferson, is the greatest person ever born. The students can't seem to understand the fact that no one cares about this except for them.
As far as sports are concerned, UVA has teams that are good at what they do. They are. Yes, some years they are better and worse than "other" teams, but the fact is, most of the time all of their sports teams are formidable opponents.
The fact is, the students that do not go to UVA do so because they don't want to be surrounded by the assholes that embody UVA.
Guy: Hey, where are you going to college?
Rich bitch 1: Oh, my daddy is going to pay for me to go to UVA. I just got this Mercedes for my birthday and can't wait to drive it there.
Rich bitch 2: It's great, we never have to work while we are there. I take only 12 credits a semester and can stay for as long as I want since I have all the time in the world.
Guy: Yeah...well unlike you too, I actually have to try.
Guy: UVA sucks!
UVA student: No it certainly does not! Thomas Jefferson founded this school. Do you even know who that is? Well, I'll tell you anyway...
Guy: hold on, hold on.....I..don't .......care.
UVA student: Oh, want a Zima?
UVA, where we’re better than you and we think we know it. UVA is actually the biggest collection of douchebags you will ever see in one place. UVA students like to constantly remind everyone what school they go to and generally act like complete assholes to anyone who doesn’t go to their piece of shit school. Granted, UVA is a well rounded school but it’s not as specialized as some other schools. Virginia Tech is better for engineering, architecture, etc. whereas William and Mary is a well respected liberal arts school. Virginia Tech actually caries the highest average starting salary for graduates than any other school in Virginia. If prestige is the only factor in deciding your school, than its obviously best to go to an Ivy league school. If you’re looking for a school that’s actually fun to go to then UVA just blows, without question. UVA likes to call itself a party school, which I guess is true if you have a fine taste for wine coolers. UVA also claims to be the top school in Virginia in terms in athletics. Let’s be honest though, it’s not like Americans give a flying fuck about soccer or lacrosse (I apologize to anyone who plays soccer or lacrosse it’s just the truth). UVA is awful at sports that people do care about (football, basketball, etc.) but apparently they didn’t take that into account.more...
The personality of UVA is shockingly is similar to Buzz Killington (from Family Guy) . Think about it, he’s snobby, annoying, and no on...
A top 25 school consistently rated as the #1 or #2 public school in the country. A school where 95% of the kids who attend graduated in the top 10% of their high school class. A school where you have to earn your grade, because you're competing against the best of the best.
JMU & VT are both great schools. Virginia is one of the best states in the nation for incredible colleges. But neither are quite at UVA or W&M's level.
UVA - 29-31% acceptance rate
VT - 67-70% acceptance rate
JMU - 67-70% acceptance rate
VT engineer - "I go to Tech, I'm an engineer. Where do you go?"
UVA student - "UVA. I'm a bio major"
Radford students - "Those are some freakishly smart dudes...let's get out of here and go get drunk. Then let's go to a VT football game and pretend like we are Tech students because they're good at football. And we like football."
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.
