Student Diversity & Visiting Companies

The University of Virginia believes greatly in the idea of diversity and is always on the lookout to promote student diversity because they believe that when people of different backgrounds come together, they exchange ideas, questions, and broaden the horizons for all, which helps in building respect amongst communities, which in line makes a country great. These beliefs are underlined by all the 50 states and the 147 foreign countries from which the students come to pursue their dreams at UVA. All these factors lead to greater employability and some of the famous recruiters like CNET, Reddit, etc are examples of that.
