Facilities: Its kinda like being in jail, but Vermont is really pretty so I try not to stay indoors too much.

1 College Junior

3 College Junior

3 College Junior

1 College Junior

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Perrys(reasonably priced, good) Full Belly(reasonably priced, good) Nancys(reasonably priced,good) Taps(expensive, good)

3 College Junior

Scholarships: They are usually pretty helpful but the financial aid offices is really disorganized and they're always losing papers. But they are friendly, and help with what they can.

3 College Junior

Majors: Environmental Studies is a great major at the school, but those damn ELA classes....

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Everythings fine, until you actually have to get something done.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: If you're into ragers, this school is definitely not the party school for you. Everyone is pretty boring when it comes to the party scene. People drink and smoke and use drugs and everything, but they're all hipster about it. They never actually do anything. Except that one kid...

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The biology and NRM departments really allow the students to almost self run them. These departments get the students hands-on experience while giving them opportunities to to do projects and research with their names in them and potentiality all the students to get into high class schools such as Yale.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Love the off campus dining, Perrys, PHOP, Stwearts, and all the other places are awesome. Even the new cafe, that maybe my new homework spot. There are so many places i haven't been to all of them

4 College Sophomore

Majors: there are some majors they could try to add, but i have found my majors on campus and im loving it

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Being an NRM and biology double major, its the best. The teachers and fellow classmates, along with the self-interest, is what helped me decide my majors. The teachers are the best!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: If you like to have house parties where you can crank that music up loud, off campus is the way to go

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: North is where its at. I love living in the dorms, they are my second home

5 College Sophomore

Computers: I love the withey lab and the wifi especially, we almsot have the whole campus with wifi

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Minus the sometimes bitter winters, the spring and fall and summer are too gorgeous to die for

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no real Greek culture at Green Mountain College. While there are likely a few Greek students, it does not effect the social atmosphere on campus at all. There are no sororities or fraternities at Green Mountain College.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Students causally drink when celebrating or socializing on weekends, looking out for their peers if someone has drunken excessively, and making sure everyone makes it back to their room safely. Peer pressure is certainly not an issue through my experience. Policy enforces rather strictly on campus, however, most drug usage takes place off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Weather in beautiful year round. Some would disagree during the winter months when temperatures drop below -10 Fahrenheit, however, snow covered trees and the frozen river (as well as plenty of winter sports) completely makes up for the freezing cold. During spring, everything on campus blossoms and comes to life, and work on the farm gets started. Fall is vibrant with the foliage and fires down at the river, and summer I don't really get to spend on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Teachers are willing to work one on one with students due to the small population on campus, and the high teacher to student ratio. Being a small liberal arts college, students and professors are intimately related through their passions, and both gain valuable information, insight, and skills through working alongside each other.

Facilities: Green Mountain College campus and faculties are well suited to those who appreciate the rustic atmosphere of Vermont. The school farm adds a lot to the scenery, with cows, chickens and pigs often running up to the fence to investigate new visitors. The library is very spacious, designed for an open setting which is good for thinking, though can often be distracting.

Transportation: There are multiple options available for transportation at our school such as a shuttle, zip cars, and school vans which are assessable to borrow for class or group trips. I have been a student for 2 years and have not found using the schools transportation necessary rather then for class related trips. Majority of locations for food, shopping, and entertainment in Poultney is a quick walk from my dorm.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The campus dining has really come a long way. They've added a bunch of local meat products and they've improved their vegetarian options quite a bit. But they still can progress more. As Cerridewn Farm (our campus farm) starts harvesting veggies and the like, the campus dining facilities will purchase them and use them during the meals, which is wonderful. They just need to do this more often. Sometimes, the taste is bland and they can be repetitive in options.
