  • Extremely liberal school in a beautiful setting. The mediocre academics and terrible dorms/food are not worth the obscene tuition rates. Even with scholarships and the lure of the Champlain Valley,…

    The college environment is fantastic, as is Burlington itself. Both the school and town have great people living in it that make being there fantastic.

    I love everything. The people are nice, the teachers are amazing, and there are a lot of things to learn. I only dislike the cold.

    Burlington is an awesome city! I live near Boston, and it reminds me of a scaled-down version of Boston - plus a lot safer and cleaner.

    The atmosphere is awesome and the people are even better. Most people are accepting and friendly and down to earth. UVM attracts a certain type of person (outdoorsy, environmentally friendly, and fun loving) but those people are exactly what makes UVM a good time and awesome place to go to school.

    Who knows if Burlington is actually a city or if its a town but either way it is still a great place to be. There is so much going on here, from the music scene, to the art scene, to the outdoors and to the slopes. No matter ones personality there is always a group of students they will find a common interest. Burlington makes a huge effort to be eco-friendly and that is obvious both downtown and at UVM. City Market (a grocery store) is a great place to find wholesome foods that are both organic and local. Places such as Muddy Waters and Uncommon Ground are terrific coffee joints where one can study while enjoying a delicious ginger beet smoothie or a plate of hummus and veggies. The UVM campus is amazing. The beautiful flowers and green lawns are evident throughout the year, unless of course the snow is covering them up! The Outing Club at UVM offers great opportunities to get off campus and explore Vermont. For those out of staters this is a wonderful chance to go hiking or canoeing at an affordable price. Programs offered by the club allow students to further their interest in the outdoors and to learn better leadership skills. As I mentioned earlier the professors are really down to earth and approachable, the students also have a laid back attitude and it is extremely easy to make a multitude of close friends.
