4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Burlington was voted the #1 college town in America in 2013. Generally don't end up leaving campus because of the amount of things to do on campus, but it's never disappointing going downtown.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Burlington was voted America's #1 college town. Enough said.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Burlington is a great town full of shops and places to go. It's nice for college, but it's way too cold up here for me to live.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The greater Burlington area is a truly unique place to live. The people are friendly, the natural landscape is beautiful, and the city itself has an incredible atmosphere and energy. I couldn't imagine a better place to go to school.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: We're close to Burlington and UVM. It's a college town, but it's also a city. Essex and Winooski are also really easy to get to and are super charming!
