University of Vermont is a small, yet great school, with many amazing programs and opportunities available. Based in a beautiful city, Burlington, your minutes from Lake Champlain; it's truly and amazing place to live. The students and faculty here are all very accepting and laid back.

This school is expensive, but worth it. It is big enough to blend in, but small enough to still make a name for yourself, if desired. There is a big push for environmental protection, and for student diversity.
