Hey there! I understand that you're looking for rankings of universities within Virginia. While I don't have a specific Virginia-only ranking list, I can provide you with a general idea of the top universities in the state based on national rankings.

1. University of Virginia (UVA) - A public research university located in Charlottesville, it consistently ranks among the top public universities in the nation and is particularly strong in business, engineering, and liberal arts.

2. College of William & Mary - Another highly-ranked public research university, William & Mary is located in Williamsburg and is known for its strong programs in liberal arts, business, and law, as well as having a historic campus.

3. Virginia Tech - A public university located in Blacksburg, Virginia Tech is especially well-known for its engineering, architecture, and business programs. It also has a strong research focus and offers many hands-on learning opportunities.
