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.
Review University of Vermont
mountains. Burlington has great food, music, art, and a surprisingly big nightlife for a small city.

UVM had good academics and excels particularly in certain fields like medicine or anything environmental. Intro course may be lecture style but you quickly move to small classes specific to your degree.

The student body is not racially diverse but the community focuses heavily on diversity, inclusion, and social justice. Burlington and UVM are left-leaning and progressive.

Newer dorms are wonderful, older dorms are ragged. Dining hall food is below par but other campus eating is very good.

UVM is not a typical state school. School spirit is very mellow, sports are not a heavy focus. Big sports are hockey, basketball, and soccer. There is not football team.

Clubs and organizations are also intertwined with the Burlington community so being a UVM student is also being a Burlington resident..
The University of Vermont is a beautiful school with a medium sized student body. the amount of students makes it nice, because you don't know everyone but learn to recognize several people and meet most of your class it seems. It's a very liberal scene, sometimes overly. Burlington is an expensive place to live and dine I'm not going to lie. If you're into good beers Vermont is definitely a place to check out. The cafeteria food is sub-par, but I feel that is the only downfall of the university. If you're interested in any medicinal or health fields UVM is definitely a school you want to check out. It's an awesome non-conformist society that anyone can really fit into; it's super open and inviting. If you like skiing or snowboarding this is an awesome college destination with super cheap season passes for students, and usually obnoxiously long winters. All in all UVM is an awesome school. You're surrounded by mountains living on a beautiful lake, it's incredible.
