Don't come here if you want Greek life; we don't have it. Don't come here for your traditional college experience; we don't have that either. People say there is nothing around, but I disagree. To the east is Paine Mountain, to the west is the Dog River, and the north is a tiny little town called Northfield. If you have the mental capacity to enjoy something other than frats and parties you'll love this spot in the middle of nowhere. If you like the outdoors, you'll love this spot. I don't recommend the civilian side, join the corps. Challenge yourself a little, it's not that hard and if you're weak minded enough to quit you never should've came in the first place. Norwich Forever!

Most of the negative ratings on here are from civilian students... this was originally a military college with the civilian part (Vermont College) being off campus with civilians being bussed in for certain classes. That all changed in the early/mid nineties, when civilian housing was brought onto the Northfield campus (Military College of Vermont). Ever since then, the civilian students always felt like second class students.
Campus is in the boonies....so there are less distractions....when it comes to the typical college night life, just get a ride up to Burlington or Montreal on the weekends like I did.
This is a unique school. It takes a unique individual to want to go here. If your looking for that career in Law Enforcement or the military this is a great start to that path.
This is a great school with so many opportunities. We have students from all over the world and a lot of international opportunities. Professors are supportive and course work is interesting!
