From University of Vermont

Since 1791, the University of Vermont has worked to move humankind forward. Today, UVM is a Public Ivy and top 100 research university of a perfect size, large enough to offer a breadth of ideas, resources, and opportunities, yet small enough to enable close faculty-student mentorship across all levels of study, from bachelor’s to M.D. programs. Here, students’ educational experience and activities are enriched by our location — from the energy and innovation of Burlington to the forests, farms, and independent spirit of Vermont. UVM provides students endless ways to explore the world, challenge ideas, and dig in on the most pressing issues of our time.

Our hometown perennially appears on national rankings that laud its livability, access to nature and recreation (including the best skiing in the northeast), thriving food and music scene, rising identity as a technology and innovation hub, and its status as a top college town.

    Love it! Such a great campus with lots and lots of opportunities offered throughtout. Many chances to intern and get connected with the outside world. Great little safe city outside the college. Easy to contact teachers and lots of things to get yourself involved in on campus and off campus. Very pretty campus with average size dorms but very clean and organized rooms. You’ll always find somebody or something to love at the university of Vermont. They have a dairy bar where you can get all different flavors of ice cream at almost any time of the day right in the cafeteria. There is also easy access to skiing and snowboarding mountains which is an activity a lot of students choose to involve themselves in here at University of Vermont. Last but not least, there are thousands and thousands of clubs, sport teams and activities that every student is allowed to go into.

    The University of Vermont is a great school! The UVM community is close knit and allows students to learn about their passions and grow through connections with others. There are many opportunities for internships, studying abroad, and service learning courses which get students out into the world to learn more than they can learn in the classroom alone. Additionally, Burlington is a great place to go to school. There are great shops and restaurants, as well as arts and live performances. I would recommend UVM to any student who is looking for a stellar University experience!
    WE isn't a cult! Highly recommend joining the Wellness Environment for access to free fitness passes, in-dorm gyms, decently healthy-ish food. Class sizes range from an easy 300 students to smaller, 20-40 size classes as you become more specialized in your classes. Lots of people go out to the bars, house parties can be difficult to get into, Greek life is active but not overly so, and people are generally accepting and welcoming of all sorts of students. However, it's a very, very, very white school population.
