    Everyone here is so nice! We have really good academic programs, cool extracurriculars, hundreds of talks and presentations that are really interesting to attend, and most of the classes here are under 30 students. You really get to know everyone here and it's just a nice community to be a part of. It would be nice if the school was a little more diverse, but that's just northern Vermont I guess.

    Even though Saint Michael's is a small campus, having the opportunity to connect with professors and peers and building close-knit relationships makes the college experience highly enjoyable. I have always been the type of student who likes to build relationships with teachers and classmates; Saint Michael's has certainly let me interact with my professors outside of the classroom and feel comfortable talking to them about daily events. It is so relieving to know that my professors know how I learn and what I need in order to succeed in school. I would love to see Saint Michael's expand and build/add new resources that will help develop more majors/minors, activities, and community events. The President of the college and all of the students aim to make Saint Michael's a friendly, welcoming, and positive environment so that everyone can have a great experience.
    The location was perfect. There are so many activities off campus and being near Burlington and the lake is awesome. Everyone is friendly, students and professors. Don't let the "saint" word scare you away as people are not very religious. There weren't many options for classes to take and it was especially hard to change majors or come in undecided. Traditions are fun and quirky. It is very cold. I like Saint Mike's!
