In September 2004, a U.Va. English department teaching assistant took 23 students to the decommissioned Blue Ridge Sanatorium out in the Charlottesville countryside and helped them climb over a padlocked fence to explore the property. He wanted his American detective fiction students to better understand eerie settings. The class got a first-hand taste of crime, though, when the T.A. and each of his students were charged with trespassing (the charges were later dropped, but the T.A. was suspended). Foolish as the instructor may have been, the lure is understandable. The University owns a...Read More

Stam...Read More

Tom Bannard moved into his first-year dorm with a suitcase full of liquor. Almost from the start, he recalls, he was a daily drinker, but he managed to keep his grades up. He didn’t see a problem.
He continued to drink and use drugs every day until his fourth year—when an arrest spurred him to seek help off Grounds. After four months in treatment, he was welcomed back to U.Va. by his dean to finish his degree, but he worried about protecting his sobriety. “The culture at U.Va. was very supportive of drinking as long as you could keep your stuff together,...Read More
