What's housing like down in C-ville? What is life like for married students? Why orange and blue? Was whoever selected the colors colorblind?
Speaking as a 0L, housing is more affordable away from campus. Near campus appears to be where you find most law students and unsurprisingly many of the study and social activities.
Charlottesville has many nice places to live, for couples and families. Locals complain about traffic, but compared to most large cities it's pretty easy to commute from one side of the city to the other.University Colors
Orange and blue were adopted as the University of Virginia's official athletic colors at a mass student meeting in 1888. UVa athletic teams had previously worn silver gray and cardinal red, but those colors did not stand out on muddy football fields, prompting a student movement to change them.
One of the students attending the mass meeting was Allen Potts, a star athlete who played on Virginia's first football team in 1888. Potts showed up at the meeting wearing a navy blue-and-orange scarf that he had acquired during a summer boating expedition at Oxford University. Orange and blue were chosen as the official athletic colors after one of Potts' fellow students pulled the scarf off Potts' neck and, waving it to the crowd, yelled, "How will this do?"
