    Campus Safety

    Campus safety is always patrolling the premises and close-by to the dorms.

    Greek Life

    As far as I know Greek Life does not quite exist at the college. However, Alpha Chi National Scholar Society is available to students that achieve high merit.

    Clubs and Activities

    Theres various sports and extracurricular activities if you wish to participate.

    Great for these types of students

    SVC is great for students who are eager to learn, have their voice be heard, and those seeking an intimate student: teacher ratio.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    SVC has a lot of woods and paths. These are fun for hiking or just enjoying a walk to class. I am not sure about any unusual traditions...

    Bang for the buck

    The close-knit private education makes all the difference. Unlike huge colleges, at SVC students are MUCH MORE than just a number. I have enjoyed my time at the college very much and will continue to keep the connections made with faculty after graduation.

    What to do for fun

    Bennington area can be rather boring but the scenery is beautiful. I enjoy running at local parks. If shopping is of interest to you, Bennington has local shops and NY/MA malls are not too far.

    Food and Dining

    Jazzman's cafe has the most delicious food options. I have never ate at the actual cafeteria or Moose Cafe since I am a commuter student.

    Dorm Life

    I have never lived in the dorms at SVC. However, I hear they are alright. Dorm life in general can be difficult--so many people your own age.

    Academic Rigor

    The close-knit classes offer a challenging and intimate educational experience.

    Tips for prospective students

    The point of college is to learn. While SVC may not have the greatest social life, it does prepare one for the real world and after college experiences whether that be a job or graduate school. Enjoy the scenery, and study hard--that's what will take you far, not huge parties.

    In three sentences

    Southern Vermont College is a small, private institution. At SVC, an intimate and truly rewarding education can be achieved and follow throughout life. I will forever be fortunate to have the chance of attending.
