Green Mountain College Reviews
Review Green Mountain College
There is no health center on campus but there is a wellness center that deals with mental health. There is a medical center in Castleton about 15 minutes away that most students go to when sick and the shuttle goes there everyday. The wellness center is nice but it's only therapy, if you have a major issue or a psychological disorder they can't help much but they'll still talk to you if you want. In my opinion there are too many mentally ill people on campus for there to be no close psychological help. There has been an issue with theft but overall campus is relatively free from violent crime. If I feel unsafe it's because the closest hospital is 30 minutes away and there's some pretty unstable people around that aren't receiving adequate care.
If you are academic, passionate and self-motivated, you will find the opportunities here unparalleled. I would NEVER have had the unique education experiences I had here at a typical university. You MUST be self-motivated. If you are lazy or unsure of your education goals, you will fail here. The professors are excellent--they do not teach here for the pay or tenure packages or notoriety, they teach here because they like the school's mission and are passionate about teaching. The courses may not have the greatest variety, but that's because it's not a large university.
I really like the academics here and how they connect to the environment. However, the school is not very diverse and there's a few issues with administration.
