University of Virginia

The University of Virginia is an above-average state school. In keeping with the traditions of the Old South (and the Old's South's obsession with traditions), it's a rigidly hierarchical society, with honors students allowed to reside in the historic inner triangle, where they enjoy wood fireplaces and pin flowery remonstrances to the university to their doors, frequently referencing "Mr. Jefferson," rather than protest.

However, the original campus, designed by Jefferson himself, was one of the inspirations for McKim, Mead, and White's layout of Columbia's Morningside Heights campus.
