I am a senior at UVM studying Speech Therapy. I love everything about this school! Not only are the professors in my department phenominal, the entire school community is outstanding. I am a member of Greek Life and various clubs on campus which have all contributed to my positive experience at this school. Burlington is also a beautiful, safe college town with many fun activities in a within a close driving distance.

Vermont is the 2nd whitest state in the U.S. and our campus diversity expresses that. Club sports are taken very seriously because our athletics are sub-par (really, how are we D1?). School is ridiculously expensive for the education that you get and you pay so much in housing with very little return. Campus is constantly littered with rolling paper and beer cans; president says that the campus is "tobacco free" but you walk 10 feet and find that there are SO MANY CIGARETTES. Burlington is a nice little city but hard to find parking, full of overpriced housing, and expensive.
UVM is not divesting from fossil fuels and green-washes its students/faculty into thinking that it is super environmentally friendly.
My experience at the University of Vermont was amazing! Academically I felt like I was pushed to learn and growth. I felt supported by the academic staff. One star off for diversity and price tag. Student life and community in Burlington, Vermont is a big plus. The city of Burlington and the access to the lake, woods, and surrounding green spaces is incomparable.
