It was 40 years ago. I would guess I would not like the culture today. Too PC.

Bachelor's of Arts, Sociology, Class of 2009

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.

A growing trend is the students don't talk to anyone any more, they have their headphones in and walk right past everyone; they also are glued to their phones/tablets. The face to face culture is very quiet.

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.

Computer Engineering, Class of 2014

Computer Labs recently replaced with work areas, since students largely bring their own computers and programs for low cost computers are available for those who don't (limited public computing in libraries) Constantly expanding new dorm buildings, maybe 1/3 of dorms are new, very nice. 1/3 are old and not that desirable, and 1/3 are old but desired for their location & community. Selective communities (Brown College & The Lawn) with self-selected members are also available which are generally considered honors. Classrooms are fine, not necessarily special. Dining halls are good, but get old after a few years of it
