What Students Are Saying

3.69 Average Rating
Just talk to people, everyone is so friendly and the more you put yourself out there the easier it will be. If you have questions, ask.
Azaria from Rochester, NH
Visit, take the tours, then spend some time on your own looking around. Ask questions, if you can't see yourself at a school, move on to the next one.
Kierstin from Guilford, CT
If you have any choice in where you live first semester I would recommend the Red Stone campus; It is a very social area and there are beautiful lawns/greens to play games or just spend time with friends. All of the housing at UVM has similar opportunities, but I really enjoyed my time on red stone and think it is worth looking into. Also, look into a variety of majors and don't be afraid of starting as an undeclared student.
Megan from Charlotte, VT
Scholarships, Scholarships, Scholarships! I would also advise prospective students to come prepared for harsh winters. It can get frigid. The winters are, however, magical at times and the beautiful Burlington Spring and fall more than make up for the harsh winters.
Brandy
Get a tour of the school and spend a night if you can. Talk to a department head in the field of study you're interested in. Also, introduce yourself to an admissions officer; they're very nice and it will help you along the way.
Marc from Bethlehem, CT
You will never be able to understand the full potential of this school unless you come up to visit, so definitely do so.
Sarah from Merrick, NY
If you decide to come here, make sure you're satisfied with your schedule. Sometimes there are classes that go on really late at night which can make having a job, social life or homework difficult.
Hannah from Danville, PA
UVM is a good school in an adorable town with a wonderful landscape. Your experience will be what you make of it, so have fun but study hard and try to learn something.
(If you are concerned with housing [i.e. you want to have the option to study in your dorms and have your own sanitary bathroom], try to get into U. Heights via acceptance into the Honors College or Green Housing.)
First Year at Groovy UV
Don't be intimidated by the size of the campus and student body; this is a large college with a small feel. (Just think: you can meet one new person every day until you graduate!) Also there's ALWAYS something going on and a TON of clubs and activities for every type of person. I've actually found that I want to join TOO many clubs :)
Charlotte from Dedham, MA
Love this school. I feel like they actually care about you here and want you to succeed. Sure the academics may not be as rigorous as some other schools, but with the courses required and resources and encouragement at Uvm, I am more prepared for a job already than some people I know in the same major at other schools.
