A game for alumni, students and friends of the University of Virginia.
The University of Virginia is distinctive among institutions of higher education. Founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819, the University sustains the ideal of developing, through education, leaders who are well-prepared to help shape the future of the nation. The University is public, while nourished by the strong support of its alumni. It is also selective, the students who come here have been chosen because they show the exceptional promise Jefferson envisioned.
We visited Charlottesville, Virginia and asked students and alumni, “What makes this place so great?” We heard all about Rugby Road, Mad Bowl, the Secret Societies, and the Cavaliers. We stood in the center of the awe inspiring Lawn and gazed in wonder at the fabulous Rotunda. We took a break at the Tavern to compile our research. The results? A game so full of UVA, we could hardly get the lid on!
Here’s a quick idea of how to play:
Choose your token, buy well known UVA properties, collect credit hours and trade them in for diplomas, it sounds easy enough – but add academic probation, summer school and increased tuition and it becomes a little more difficult and a lot more fun. So roll the dice! Who knows! You may soon be eating pizza at Anna’s… or you may be bumming quarters to do your laundry! Are you looking for a fun way to experience the University of Virginia?
Here it is! UVA OPOLY!
