Today’s College Spotlight is on the University of the Virgin Islands on St. Thomas. Why didn’t I know this place existed when I was applying to schools?! Oh yeah, because I was searching for colleges based entirely on prestige and rank.
Anyway, Joe Charles is our guide on this virtual campus tour, and he is perfectly suited for it as someone who grew up on the island but spent his high school years in the Philadelphia, PA area. He is able to examine the school with a cosmopolitan eye, giving us a better picture of what UVI offers.
Joe highlights the location (obviously), the academics (especially Engineering, Marine Biology, and Nursing), and the diversity of students he encounters as being the best features of the school. He also shares that UVI is a study abroad destination for students from the continental U.S. Check it out!
