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...

But many of U.Va.’s critical first moments are marked in time. Each event listed here is a milestone for the University. Many occurred long ago, others are not so distant, and certainly there are more firsts to come.

In his upcoming book, Why Leaders Fight, Batten School Dean Allan C. Stam and his team analyze dozens of pieces of biographical data for 2,500 world leaders since the 1870s—political chief executives, heads of state, presidents, dictators, kings, prime ministers—for risk aversion and acceptance. Using the data—experiences in their lives such as losing their parents, seeing battle and suffering trauma—they developed a model to predict risk-taking in terms of the willingness to use force against one’s neighbors. Stam...

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,...
