Katie Couric and Tina Fey Look Back

This isn't really admission related, but it's fun to hear about how some things have changed and some things are still the same here at UVa.

Check out two of our favorite alumnae talking about their UVa experiences in the late 70s and early 90s...



People still believe that the section of Grounds where they lived in their first year is the best (old dorms vs. new dorms). It's still harder to get admitted if you aren't a Virginia resident. I think our fashion has changed a little bit and the student body is certainly more diverse than in Tina's day. I'm pretty sure you can still find Tina Fey's sweatshirt at one of the bookstores.
