3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Its heard about greek life on campus

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Its a different type of environment coming from the city like me

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Can do my workout and play intramurals

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Has all you need for any college experience if you are willing to look and get involved

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience at this school what, to be frank, underwhelming. I found myself unimpressed by the attempt the University made to help with the high school to college transition.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: 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.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I would never want to join Greek life but that doesn't mean that they're bad people or that they only good for one thing or another. They are generally good to others and do good for the community. There are plenty of Greek houses across campus and they're always looking for new members. The view of Greeks by non-Greeks varies so it is hard to say, but I know that I am very indifferent towards what they do so I have no problem with it.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I was never into college sports, so this review is somewhat bias, but that's not to say that I haven't seen varsity teams up and practicing at 5am every morning and working together on the fields provided. The facilities are in good condition and it is student friendly all around. School spirit is mostly aimed towards our hockey teams, but club involvement is a big part of what makes our athletics so great.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I rate this with the utmost sincerity in saying that this college was not my first choice but once I ended up here, I started to like it a lot more than originally anticipated. The teachers give a fair work load while still teaching in class effectively. I met a bunch of amazing people whom I'm lucky to call my friends now. The only problem is, they do not have the major I was seeking so I may consider transfer but that is a problem for the future.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Overall, couldn't ask for a better college!

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Super fun, social atmosphere. Nice buildings and great value

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Just something else to get involved with on campus!

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Hockey is great, everything else is overlooked

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Overall, Great all around! Lots to do and classes are engaging.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The professors in the Biology field are all mostly engaged and really enjoy the topic that they teach. Physics however, is severely lacking in capable professors.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The career services is good at creating events to reach out to employers, but often there are elements missing that make it an effective outreach.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: There are blue lights located around campus for immediate police attention; however, if an incident were to occur they aren't always in the immediate area. Also, there aren't any located off campus.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: UVM is just now building brand new freshman dorms, which will connect directly to the library. This will be a great opportunity for incoming students.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Almost every fraternity and sorority have their own housing, and it is my understanding that these house are not paying taxes so the cost of living while in Greek life is lower. However, expectations for attending events is high, and often it must interfere with school work.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The athletics are engaging for all students and the events are fun to attend. However, the athletic facilities are sub-par for students are regularly attending the gym as the gym is way too small and crowded.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: UVM has a great community of students and it is a fun place to be. Despite high expenses, I'm glad I have chosen UVM because it provides a great college experience.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had plenty of interesting courses and the professors are great!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel that with the help of career services I can easily get a job.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe with the blue safety lights

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I dont know much about it to give a good review but its pretty good!

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.
