Excellent school that combines great academics in an outstanding location. The D1 athletic department offers a good place for a student athlete to play top tier college athletic and also have a nurturing environment to learn and be a successful student. The campus is right up there with top Ivy League schools and the university is constantly adding new beautifully designed buildings to compliment the campus. A must see for all college seniors. Tuition is a little steep but you get what you pay for!
The high diversity rating is not reflective of the ideological and political spectrum here. There is a minimal conservative presence on campus, and many students are condescending if you do not agree with their views. The school is not diverse, either racially or ideologically.

If you are looking for a place where you can have meaningful political and ideological discourse, UVM is not for you.

The party scene is adversely affected by the inflexible attitude of the school administration, which is divorced from reality when it comes to how much they believe they can successfully legislate the morality of their students. When ~10,000 students between the ages of 18-21 live in such a small area, there WILL be partying- a reality that seems to be lost on the school. Additionally, there is a war on the Greek community, which is demonized and defunded, despite the fact that they contribute substantially to the philanthropic efforts of the student body.
My experience so far has gone quite well. I believe that the dorms are spacious enough for 2, but I did live in a triple so it was sort of crammed. The social atmosphere was great! Everyone conversed with anyone they saw on their floor, but I always had to leave to go to the library to study because of this which I guess isn't a bad thing. the cost was a bit much for everything included which is why I haven't rated this perfectly. The housing process for first years was incredibly easy as well because it is all set for you.
