3 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at school are all supported by the athletes, but there are not very many athletes. For example, there is not even a football team. I am on the club field hockey team, which is a great team and everyone supports one another. The team is definitely more fun-oriented than the variety team, but we are just as good.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoy University of Vermont because there is something for everyone. The school is very diverse in terms of it's student bodies interests. However, the majority of students are very active in the outdoors, which I love because I can always find someone to hike or ski with.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I absolutely love this school and never want to leave.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school has a great program that I believe is setting me up for much greater things in life.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are some changes that can be made to better provide for the health of students like adding maybe another clinic closer to the furthest dorms, but overall I feel great at this school.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing can be a pain sometimes, especially with choosing rooms for the next year, but as long as you make friends, the situation can only get better.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: They are a D1 school, but not the very best. It's still fun to go and watch games though, especially the Hockey games!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love this school. It felt like home the first day I arrived and still does now.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UVM is a great school for anyone looking to experience the Northeast without being suffocated by the preppy white kid stereotype of North easterners. Granted the majority of the school is composed of privileged white kids, but if you search hard enough you'll find wicked smart gritty kids on scholarships down to get dirty. Professors are really passionate and interesting. My only complaint is Reslife. It's a overly sensitive organization that aims at "inclusion" but in reality makes it really hard to address diversity without offending someone or being politically incorrect.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I wish varsity sports were a bigger part of campus life but if you want to be athletic here there is no shortage of opportunities. If you like to be outdoors there is no better place to be.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The experience so far has been exactly what you would expect from a Vermont college.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are many emergency posts so there is a generally safe feeling on campus. Most issues come from individuals making bad decisions, usually fueled by alcohol.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's a very beautiful campus with a lot of great people. Financial aid was s little bit of a struggle and I could definitely use more help. The classes are very high quality and the professors are friendly and knowledgeable. The grading varies a lot between different courses and departments so it's important to find out exactly how each class goes.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think that the University of Vermont is a well known school so a degree from this university is good to have, but it is not known for academic prestige by any means.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I have had a good experience with campus housing, but there are some dorms on campus that are not as nice as my own.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I haven't had much personal interaction with Greek life, but many of my friends involved enjoy it. There are frequent events such as fundraisers held on campus that are run by Greek life.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There aren't many varsity sports, but the hockey games are well attended any a large source for school spirit on campus.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have an intense workload, but I have had an overall pleasant experience at school. I've learned a lot from all my classes thus far and there are a variety of classes to choose from. My teachers are very knowledgeable and available to meet during office hours for extra help.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have always felt safe on the UVM campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have taken a great variety of courses in my time here thus far. Overall, I have had very engaging professors and have had some great experiences.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are lots of options for students to investigate such as the CareerHub to help them with finding jobs and internships.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: In my freshman year I ended up in one of the nicest residence halls on campus, WDW. I have loved living there and met my closest friends on my floor. I requested a random roommate and ended up in a forced triple (a double sized room with three people). It is tight, but we have made it work. WDW is about a 15 minute walk from central campus, but its not a bad trip.

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek Life. It is popular but if you don't want to join you will not feel left out.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The big sport at UVM is hockey, and many students attend the games, which are a lot of fun. The fitness center which is open to all students is up to date and has a great view of the mountains.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am thrilled with my choice to attend UVM. I have already had so many great experiences, particularly in relation to the outdoors and the environmental field. People here are open-minded and passionate, and professors clearly want every student to succeed. The campus is beautiful despite the ongoing construction. The surrounding town of Burlington the perfect place to spend the weekends. I could not picture myself anywhere else.

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.
