The campus is in a beautiful location but there is not much to do in the surrounding area unless you have a car. Rutland has the widest variety of restaurants/stores in the area but is a good 30 minute drive from campus. There are many hiking and outdoor adventure opportunities but the social life is extremely poor; be prepared for a lot of alone time during the cold months because campus becomes a ghost town aside from students walking to/from classes or the library. The student body is largely made up of cliques but there are many kind and open-minded people as well. However, the professors are amazing and truly care about their students' success.

The dining hall food royally sucks and you are forced to purchase a meal plan. Ridiculously expensive here for what you get. Wonderful memories were made but transferred for the better.

Green Mountain College has a beautiful campus, great location for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, amazing food in the dining hall, and knowledgeable professors in the classrooms. I couldn't want for much more!
I love my school, the location, the people and the goals and mission of the school. I think that what GMC is doing is very important!
