    I love being part of the Green Mountain community! There is always something that you can do here whether it be a Friday night or a Tuesday afternoon. The athletic programs are really on the rise fast and are a great time to go and watch.

    The atmosphere is so down to earth. Everyone is laid back and they do not care what is going on. They are many places to just sit down and relax and take a breather. The town is small and welcoming to anyone. I am originally from Missouri and it is a long haul from there to here, but the people at this school make it worth it.

    I love Green Mountain College, they have a lot of great clubs for students including P.A.N.T.S which stands for People Are Not There Sex which is a gender education club, along with other clubs such as International Awareness Club, Student Senate, and Farm Crew. We are one of the few schools that have an organic farm that is run by the students, along with cows, chickens, goats, and pigs.

    The first semester here can be problematic if you're not into partying, but eventually you make friends. The focus of the school has been really good for me in nurturing my interest in the environment. The food here is decent and the dorm rooms are awesome. I love the small feel of campus. It feels really great to see people I actually know around campus.
