4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Haven't moved in yet, but I can't wait to move off campus this summer!

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Such a good foodie town. A ton of good restaurants with a lot of the fast food staples as well. Everything is great quality and a lot of places use local ingredients.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: It is hard to actually get in trouble. You're notified before getting written up for noise violations and RAs knock before entering rooms. If you don't smoke in your room during rounds and don't walk around with an alcohol bottle or leave contraband around during inspections you will be fine. You have to be stupid to get in trouble.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Decent parties if you know the right people. A lot of places are ticketed though, so you have to pay ahead of time to get in. Zen is good for weeknight partying, other than that its mostly frats and friend's houses.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: They took away a scholarship my second year, making it much harder to pay for school. We were not notified that we were no longer getting this scholarship either, so it was unexpected and very difficult to figure out. The financial aid office was also very unhelpful when I called.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Sodexo is absolutely horrible. They don't care if you complain about something wrong with your food. You are required to purchase a very expensive meal plan the first two years, but after that you can get off it when you move off campus. It takes a while for your stomach to adjust to Sodexo, but every once in a while there is a decent option.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are decent, but the better options are much further from class. The worst dorms are being knocked down next year, which will improve on-campus housing a lot. Living on Trinity is the worst, as you're isolated from a lot of the things that happen on Central campus or on one of the more active parts of campus. In my opinion, Redstone is the best, even though it is far. This is followed by Athletic, then Trinity. I'm sure that once the new dorms are built on Central those will be the best.

Administration: Strict about some things, less strict about others. Substance use is not recommended but there are safe options to get from one place to another with minimum punishment

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The health and safety on campus is great. I have heard that a lot is offered in support of people who need their services.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: My experience with the athletics have been great, especially hockey is very huge on campus. Our team is very successful, and there is a huge amount of school spirit all around campus.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I haven't really had any interactions with Greek students.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not started looking for off-campus housing yet. I have heard that it can be difficult and you need to start searching for places to rent very early.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining can be expensive and it's something that I'll only do when I have family visit, and if it's with friends then I will occasionally eat off campus. The food variety is awesome, I have never had a bad meal off campus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The administration is nice, and are usually very leisurely. I have seen people in daylight smoking pot and no one seems to care.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I tend to not go to parties, it just isn't my thing.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a nice financial aid that helped with going to UVM, but It would have been nice if more financial aid was offered. As an out-of-state student, this school is very expensive

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food can be good as long as you are willing to pay more for it. The unlimited dining halls need some work, as much of their food is unhealthy and definitely doesn't taste very good. There needs to be more options, but I have noticed that they are very good at accommodating to allergies and food preferences.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I currently live in a suite, consisting of 6 suitemates, with two doubles and two singles, two bathrooms and a common room. It is a great type of living. I live in a programmed house called the Social and Environmental Activism (SEA) house, which is great living with people who have the same interests that I do. The housing process was relatively easy because I got into a programmed housing, but not that I have not gotten into a programmed housing for next year, I have to participate in the housing lottery.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are lots of options but they are expensive because all of downtown is essentially on the waterfront and the process starts very early (signing leases for June in September)

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students are in agreement that the University of Vermont is a remarkable place to go to school. The refreshing environment and lovely surroundings meld well with the progressive, laid-back city of Burlington. One particular area students wish to see change is an increase in the amount of racial diversity. Perhaps the coming years will bring a more diverse application pool, allowing students to learn in a varied and culturally aware environment. And while less consequential factors, such as parking or Greek life, were neither praised nor abhorred, the most important aspects of college—academics, atmosphere, and housing—consistently achieved superior rankings according to the students.

Compared with most other state universities, the University of Vermont offers a very competitive educational experience in an unbeatable setting. UVM is like an epicenter—it's within a day’s drive of New York, Boston, the Atlantic Ocean, and Canada. The University of Vermont houses provocative and diverse thoughts, mixed with a dedicated student body and the additional flair of Burlington. The verdict is in: UVM is a beautiful school with a rigorous academic curriculum, mixed in a place that people come to enjoy, and, surely, continue to love.
