UVA Lingo The University of Virginia (UVA) is a bastion of tradition founded by Thomas Jefferson, the most popular man in town. Whether you’re preparing to enter its hallowed halls for a degree or enjoying a weekend in town, here is your guide to local lingo. We proudly cheer on our Orange and Blue, “The Cavaliers” - “Cavs” or “Wahoos” for short. The area on which UVA sits is called “Grounds,” not “campus,” and freshmen here are called “firstyears.” The University offers structured tours for prospective students, or, if you’re interested in exploring on your own try a self-guided tour. Be sure to check out The Rotunda, the Chapel, UVA’s Fralin Art Museum and The Corner!
