My experience so far has gone quite well. I believe that the dorms are spacious enough for 2, but I did live in a triple so it was sort of crammed. The social atmosphere was great! Everyone conversed with anyone they saw on their floor, but I always had to leave to go to the library to study because of this which I guess isn't a bad thing. the cost was a bit much for everything included which is why I haven't rated this perfectly. The housing process for first years was incredibly easy as well because it is all set for you.

UVM is the best. There is no better option. The school is great, professors are really there for you, you can get help if you need it. Parties are great, lots of kids smoke weed and drink, but pot is definitely huge on campus, we have an annual 420 celebration on the Redstone quad. However, there is no need to participate if you don't want to!

I have had an incredible experience at UVM! There is something for everyone. I was able to find a great group of friends by living in the dorms and joining clubs that I was interested in. I joined the women's club lacrosse team and I am also a member of VOX, the voices for Planned Parenthood club on campus. I have had so many amazing opportunities through these blucs that I would have never had the opportunity to have at a different school. Not to mention, I have met some of the greatest people. Even though UVM is a larger school, I have had any one on one attention and extra help that I seek out. As my major has specified, my class sizes are smaller and I definitely do not feel like "just a number" here. If I could do it all over again, I would pick UVM in a heartbeat.
