University Of Virginia was founded by President Thomas Jefferson in 1819. The university is a public research institution, and so therefore it has quite a substantial student body across both graduate and undergraduate schools. It is also home to many important faculty members and alumni, many of them politicians due to the school's origins and its connection to Washington. But beyond their stellar academics and storied history, UVA is also known for the athletics. The Cavaliers has won over 25 NCAA Championships across several sports, including but not limited to: basketball, baseball, lacrosse, soccer, and boxing. This vintage University Of Virginia Swingster brand jacket, lightly worn in great condition, is perfect for any alumnus or fan.
