Everyone here is incredibly close minded. Greek life DOMINATES the social scene. If you don't like sororities/fraternities do not and i reapeat do NOT come here. The greek system is huge—they create an exclusive and closed enviroment that only promotes cliquy-ness and exclusiveness. Almost everyone I have met has an eliest attitude towards everything!! As an out of state student, it was hard making friends because EVERYONE had a predetermined group of friends from high school. Fellow out of staters are really hard to find and the in state population is nearly impossible to befriend.

This school is incredibly preppy and southern. I wasnt a huge fan of it since I'm from New York and am a liberal. You are almost forced to be like the majority and UVa does not value individuality. I am not a loser who sits alone in their room, i am incredibly sociable and love going out and making friends, but it was just so hard at UVa. I hate it & i am transfering to a more diverse and accepting school next fall.

Don't be lured in by the beautiful campus and so called "tight knight" community. If you are an out of stater, dont like the greek system, arent preppy/rich, and have any individual value, this place is hell.

responseI cannot agree with you anymore. i can't stand this school…i transfered thinking that i would love it…yah, i def. hate it. sadly i'm stuck here till i grad. in summer or fall of 2010. It's nice to hear that i'm not the only one that doesnt favor this school…just seems like it since the student body is so obsessed over this place.
