WHY UVA?

  • “My decision to attend Virginia was easy because it’s the best in every category that I considered. I really value the incredible student life on campus and the emphasis on alumni connections. UVA’s lacrosse team is a perennial national power and plays in the ACC, which is the most competitive conference in the country. UVA’s gorgeous campus and rich history is also something that is really important to me. I chose UVA because it offers the most well-rounded education and best college experience.”
