The University of Vermont opened in 1791 and is one of the oldest universities in the US. It is a “Public Ivy” research university located in Burlington, VT. U.S. News & World Report lists the university as #41 in Top Public Schools. UVM, which is surrounded by Lake Champlain and the Adirondack mountains, is Vermont’s land-, space-, and sea-grant university.
I would rate the University of Vermont very highly for anyone who would like a unique experience in Burlington, Vermont. I have been happy spending time in the town and being at a school that is both small enough to feel like you know the majority of students but also large enough that you can walk to class with the opportunity to meet many new people on the way. I have been pleased with the many opportunities available to me in my past three years at UVM.

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.
