When I visited UVM I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the campus and I absolutely loved Burlington! The campus was gorgeous and the students seemed very friendly. Burlington would be such an amazing place to live. I love the history behind the older New England towns. My only problem with the school was when I met with a financial aid adviser to see if I would be able to afford the pricey out of state tuition. I asked him about scholarships and other opportunities that would make the school more affordable and reasonable for me. The adviser was very aloof and did not seem to know anything about scholarship opportunities. He treated my family and I like morons and told me to just search for micro scholarships on google. I really love the school, but I do not think I will be able to find $20,000 a year in micro scholarships.

UVM is an excellent college. The professors are top notch. The reputation of students being pot smoking hippies could not be further from the truth. The students are extremely intelligent and hardworking students who take their academics and future very seriously, besides the campus environment being amazingly beautiful!
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.
