The Lawn has always been the heart of the University of Virginia.
It is a classroom, where professors and students study, discuss or simply read.
It is a home, for students and faculty currently residing there and for alumni who have walked its terraces over the years.
It is a stage—for music or megawatt Lighting of the Lawn celebrations. A playground—for students, families and plenty of puppies. A picture-perfect picnic site. A UNESCO World Heritage site.
Like UVA, the Lawn is both constant and constantly changing, its inhabitants living out Jefferson’s vision for shared lifelong learning as each new day dawns.
