The University of Virginia is a public research university in Charlottesville, Virginia. It is known as one of the most prestigious universities in the United States, often considered a "minor Ivy" or "public Ivy," with education quality on the same level as Ivy League schools. Its campus was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1967. It is ranked #2 Best Public University in the United States, tied with the University of California, Los Angeles.

With a rich history, the University of Virginia's earliest beginners go back to an idea formed by Thomas Jefferson in 1802. Together with James Monroe, Jefferson founded the university in 1817, and it was chartered by the Commonwealth of Virginia in 1819. From early in its history, it offered independent schools of medicine, law, arts, and many others, and also did not require religion to be involved in education, or offer degrees in religious subjects.

Today, it is also known for its historic secret societies.
