This College had me dreaming of attending as I drove up Mansion Drive, saw the amazing mansion that housed classrooms and a library with views that took my breath away. The academics, though limited, offered amazing career choices. The soccer field where I dreamed of playing was one like none I’ve ever seen. Situated in the mountain with scenic views that in the fall season looked like something out of a painting.
In the fall of 2016 my dream became reality as I began my life as an SVC student athlete. Academics and being part of a great woman’s soccer team made my first year all I had hoped It would be. The small campus fits my needs and the surrounding areas offer many opportunities for me to fulfill my wanderlust with hiking, snowboarding, mountain biking and many other adventurous activities. Entering my fourth semester in a few weeks and I can’t wait to be back on campus, making more memories and fulfilling more dreams!

Southern Vermont College has an amazing campus. It is filled with beautiful scenery of the mountains, and it looks even better when it is covered in snow! Since the school is so small, everyone knows everyone. This makes everyone polite to one another, and when you are walking to and from places, you always see at least one person to say hello to. The professors offer great assistances, and the school has a great Center for Teaching and Learning program for those students looking for extra help in their courses.
A small school of about 500 students total. Classes are small and thus one will have intimate relationships with professors. Everyone is on a first name basis, and as long as you keep your professors updated on what's going on in your life, it's difficult to fail. The view from the mountain is breathtaking-- no photo will do it justice. A great place to go if you enjoy the quiet as well as seemingly endless hiking trails.
