There is not much diversity. Some foreign students, but there is international housing just for them, so I didn't interact with many international students. Lots of white kids from privileged, white families. I worked during my time at UVA and people gave me weird looks because I had a part-time job at a fast food place. But oh well. Other than that, it was fine.

The dorms were super dank, but most of them have been renovated since I graduated. The dining halls were fine. Very large and spacious. The classes were generally fine. I was lucky in that there was a computer lab about fifty yards from my dorm, so I really liked that accessibility.
