The University of Virginia is a university rich in history and tradition. The Honor System, adopted in 1842, is well-respected and administered solely by students. Honor Societies and Secret Societies play an integral role in student life. Highly coveted Lawn rooms attract talented students, providing them the opportunity to be at the heart of the Academical Village, a community based on Thomas Jefferson’s idea that living and learning are connected. The list goes on—there is so much more that makes UVA a unique and special place!
