Southern Vermont College Reviews

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.

The schools athletics are a big part of this school. I am an athlete and everyday you get welcomed by everyone in the building you make connections with the coaches, trainers, athletic director, and other athletes. The student body is mainly athletes so we all show up to each others event to help show support for the other programs.
The professors are always there for you. They are always answering your emails in a timely manor and are always willing to sit down and talk about the class material with you. The people at this college have always been there to help me and will continue to help me. You have to try to not do well here, you will succeed at this school.
