Congrats and good luck! UR is a great school. You should definitely follow the tumblr blog www.wheninrva.com - it’s hilarious and will give you an idea of some great places to go in terms of restaurants etc. Style Weekly and richmond.com always have great events and concerts when you’re looking for something to do off campus as well.
