I don't really have a whole lot of other details surrounding it yet.
I'm not familiar with the UVA campus; is this the "ghetto" area around campus? I've noticed most larger universities have a ghetto area right outside the school, at some point around the campus. Not really a place where good things happen.

I don't remember a ghetto area when I went there. In fact there wasn't much noise made about crime at all. I had a dorm mate beat up once, that's all the crime I recall while I was there. Then there was the fraternity that shot flaming arrows at a neighboring fraternity, burning it down, but that's a different story...

I always carry downtown Gainesville. and near campus. without being on campus =P
With a population of about 40-45,000 people, you can expect a little crime. But, within about a 5 minute drive, you can go from a less desirable part of town to a part where people like this live.
