4 College Freshman

Facilities: If you like weed, UVM is the place for you. There's an explosive weed scene (for better or for worse, depending on your point of view and preference). There's also a tremendous music scene, with just about every genre covered: jazz, blues, classic rock, metal, grung, EDM, hip-hop, hell even folk music (plus, most students really dislike crappy genres like pop, country, etc.). Pretty much everybody loves it here and really identifies with everybody else. If you don't, though, it's easy to feel left out and alone. It's hit or miss in that sense, and if you end up missing you're better off transferring rather than trying to make it work. But if it does work, then you'll probably have some of the best days of your life here.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Modern buildings, high quality dining halls, great athletic facilities, great on-campus and off-campus bus . Pretty much everything is well run and well kept.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: The gym is my favorite place because if I dont feel like running I can play basketball, work out with machines, rockclimb or do anything else I can imagine. The campus is one big green space (except when it snows because well, its white). I like to go running and there is a 5K path that goes behind our campus that is lovely. All the dorms organize events on weekends, destress events on exam weeks and there are club events that are also quite interesting. Many students choose to go to the mountains hiking in the autumn and spring and skiing/ snowboarding in the winter, which shows just how athletic we are. But for the less athletic we have parties at frat houses and there's even a knitting club.

The University of Vermont is a fairly large school, and with it comes a number of facilities. While some take solace in a morning run around the track, others may prefer to work out in the fitness center and enjoy the panoramic view of the sun burning away at the frost. Likewise, students may prefer to study among their peers in the library or immerse themselves in a book near the fireplace in Billings. Depending on your preference, there is likely a little taste for you. UVM provides students with a number of facility options ranging from the solitude of secret study places to the flurry of high-octane hockey games.

The athletic facilities are simply beautiful, which is due to the University's commitment to provide its students with updated equipment. Best of all, the whole facility overlooks the soccer field and offers unobstructed views of the Green Mountains. UVM also has a number of indoor basketball hoops, an indoor track, indoor tennis courts, an ice rink, a climbing wall, and a dance studio. In addition, the athletic complex offers daily and weekly classes in cardio-jam, kickboxing, and yoga. The Billings Student Center houses numerous places to study, the University radio station, club spaces, and the school’s newspaper, Vermont Cynic.

Favorite Things To Do
Head to the Davis Center Atrium for a quick game of pool between classes, or if you're done for the day and looking to relax (and 21 years old), grab a local brew in Brennan's Pub, also on the first floor. Check your e-mail at one of the Davis Center's many computer stations or grab a coffee at Henderson's Café. You'll know it's spring when the green is filled with students and Frisbees. Also, keep an eye out for the once-a-year Wingfest and make sure to grab tickets to the Fallfest and Springfest concerts. Wingfest
