"You meet a lot of people and make a lot of connections. You figure out what you plan to do for your career, though this decision sometimes is difficult and you have more opportunities and an easier path if you make it sooner than later. Classes can be difficult but you learn a lot, and you have a lot of free time so you have to know how to motivate yourself and manage your own time."

"UVA is a great school with great professors and a very driven environment. It was definitely an adjustment getting used to the caliber of work that the institution demands, but UVA taught me how to do research and think analytically."

"UVA is a great school that is very academically challenging but offers all manners of social and personal benefits outside of the classroom. The professors and students are top notch and work hard to maintain their edge. The students are very much of the "work hard, play hard" mentality, providing a stress relief from the academics. Overall, the atmosphere of UVA is very open to all walks of life and everyone can find a niche in which to thrive and find themselves."

"Very academically challenging school with a thriving student culture as well. Despite stereotypes, the student body is fairly diverse and you can find your niche if you look for it. Engineering school is very time consuming and mentally straining."

"I was a student at the University of Virginia from the Fall of 2009 to the Spring of 2013. What a great experience! In my first year, I made so many new friends, took a lot of interesting classes that helped me solidify my goals, and joined University Salsa Club which provided me with my own kind of fraternity. I learned a lot while at UVA, but the greatest part was the social aspect and everything I gained from UVA outside the classroom. I wouldn't trade that experience for the world!"
