Health & Safety: I found security on campus to be very good. I never felt unsafe on campus at any time of day. No one I knew had anything stolen or broken into. Students frequently leave bags and other items lying around, because we trusted no one would take them.

Overall Experience: Numerous academic and extracurricular activities at Green Mountain College shaped me into the professional I am now. I would definitely not have my current career had I attended elsewhere.

Overall Experience: If you are academic, passionate and self-motivated, you will find the opportunities here unparalleled. I would NEVER have had the unique education experiences I had here at a typical university. You MUST be self-motivated. If you are lazy or unsure of your education goals, you will fail here. The professors are excellent--they do not teach here for the pay or tenure packages or notoriety, they teach here because they like the school's mission and are passionate about teaching. The courses may not have the greatest variety, but that's because it's not a large university.

Overall Experience: If you are a self-motivated student who is passionate about the environment and developing your future, then you will have everything you need at your disposal at Green Mountain College. If you lack motivation or do not know what you want to do with your future, do not attend this school. I greatly benefited from my time at GMC and I would not be the professional I am today if I had not attended such a unique school in a unique location. Remember though, this is a private college, and will cost you money in loans like any other private college.

Greek Life: There is no Greek Life at GMC.

Athletics: Althletics are not why students come to GMC--they're more of an extracurricular option for students. NCAA Division III sports. I enjoyed going to some of the games while I was at GMC. Intramurals like Ultimate Frisbee are more popular.

Off-Campus Housing: For the most part, GMC does not allow off-campus housing. For those few who do qualify, rental properties are limited and none that I visited were of much quality. Do not expect nice apartment buildings or anything like that.

Off-Campus Dining: Although Poultney is small, it's not want for good eating. Perry's Diner is cute and serves locally produced items. The Station had good coffee and baked goods. The Co-Op represented Vermont's love of health food and local food. Tap's Tavern had great beer, great atmosphere and great food. And of course there's Dunkin Donuts if you need that.

Administration: In terms of your academics, the administration is laissez-faire. If you don't attend class or meet you're requirements, they're not going to warn you. If you fail, you fail. On campus, I found that enforcement of infraction was average. Obviously large or destructive events were broken up, but less-than-legal activity often went unnoticed.

Scholarships: I received almost every available scholarship while at Green Mountain, and additional ones based upon my activity in the campus community and academic progress. Unfortunately, even with all this and a fair amount of financial aid, I still owe over $35,000 in student loans from 3 years at GMC. I will not pretend that the financial aid and business office were great--communication about my aid and loans was always spotty.

Party Scene: Because the town and campus are small, the social life options are also pretty intimate. I had a lot of fun at parties near the Poultney River, on the Recreation Floor and at "cocktail parties" on my own dorm floors. Some people party pretty hard. There's definitely access to drugs and alcohol if that's what you're looking for.

Campus Food: While living at Green Mountain, many students complained and complained about the food. They were being silly, because the dining hall there is considerably better than that of other colleges or universities. Try finding a dining hall that is willing to incorporate local produce, compost and serve the campus farm's meat animals at another school. Although there is only one option for dining on campus, I found it satisfactory the entire time I was at GMC.

Campus Food: There is only one dining hall and a fast food type place run by the same people that cook the food for the dining hall, the food is decent, sometimes they have something really good or really bad but most of it is average. People love to complain about it but it's not that bad, there's just not a lot of variety.

Off-Campus Housing: The school makes it SO HARD to live off campus. It's a little ridiculous, I know people who have gotten married just so they could live off campus- it's the only way.

Local Area: The town is pretty cute. There isn't much to do after 8 pm, but there's great places to go during the day. The co-op is my personal favorite, but there are a lot of nice local stores.

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.

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

3 College Junior

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

3 College Junior

Party Scene: 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.
