This collection of graphs and text, part of a series describing the public colleges and universities in Virginia, are intended to answer the question, "What is it like to be a student at a public college or university in Virginia?" Most graphs provide data for fall 1995 and are broken down by individual four-year institution and the public two-year colleges as a group. Graphs provide data on: student populations at four-year institutions undergraduate, graduate, and professional; student populations at two-year institutions; residence of first-year undergraduates (on-campus vs. off-campus); residence of other undergraduates (on-campus vs. off-campus); most frequently chosen areas of study for each institution; undergraduate students in teacher education at four-year institutions; lower-division instruction by faculty type (regular, other, or graduate teaching assistants) based on organized-class student-credit hours; upper-division instruction by faculty type; graduate instruction by faculty type; instruction by faculty type (full- or part-time) at two-year public institutions; students enrolled in at least one course with fewer than 25 students--by student year; and bachelor's programs requiring an integrative experience for completion of degree. Also included are brief descriptions of special academic opportunities each institution offers its students. The final section lists questions students should ask as they choose a program and school.
