CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WSET) - Students at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville took a stand against the violence that happened in that city on Saturday.

Students took to the Beta Bridge on campus and painted "Hate has no place here. We choose love."

One student said the UVA community wants to show the world that "Charlottesville does not stand for this. The University of Virginia does not stand for this."

The bridge was painted in response to the Unite the Right rally that took place on Saturday that turned deadly.
