Campus Quality: Under fantastic leadership, UVM is entering into a new era of academic excellence. I'm proud to be apart of it and I recommend it to everyone who's looking at colleges.

Campus Quality: The campus overall is quite beautiful. There are many natural spaces and unique architectural designs. We have a few green buildings such as the Aiken Center on campus that are really cool and environmentally friendly. Many people hang out on the green when it's warm, or in the library or Davis Center.

Campus Quality: The student center is very new and works well for all student needs. Many pass through it on their way to other spots, but many stay to chill with their friends. It's a good place for studying if you can deal with it being crowded. Many facilities on campus are outdated and come from the Brutalist era of architecture in the mid-70s. They are quite ugly and are only there to serve their purpose, nothing else. The older buildings on campus look great on the outside but need some work inside. Many have interesting murals on the walls from the 70s. The athletic center is very good but also a bit outdated however the amount of money and time put into it when it was built and the facilities space makes it a good place to work out or train. The scientific facilities are quite outdated in terms of the buildings but inside we have the equipment to do many experiments.

Campus Quality: I'm a Wildlife and Fisheries Biology major in the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources. The professors all really care about how you are doing, both personally and academically. I don't feel as though I'm just a number here, at least not in my RSENR classes. People do like to party here, but it's easy enough to find something else to do on weekends if you're like me and that's not your scene. Many of the buildings are pretty old, but it just shows character in my opinion. I love spending time in the Aiken Center's green room, the Davis Center, the library, and the Patrick Gymnasium.

Campus Quality: Some of the buildings are old, but the newer ones are pretty great--the Aiken Center and the Davis Center for example--I love spending time in the gym and at the Bailey-Howe library. There are green spaces on each of the campuses and on warm afternoons you'll see dozens of students lounging around or playing pickup games of Frisbee or football. One of the weirdest traditions UVM has is the naked bike ride--which happens on the last day of classes each semester--it begins at midnight, so if you don't want to participate I'd suggest staying inside or going downtown on those nights!!

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The University of Vermont is a fairly large school, and with it comes a number of facilities. While some take solace in a morning run around the track, others may prefer to work out in the fitness center and enjoy the panoramic view of the sun burning away at the frost. Likewise, students may prefer to study among their peers in the library or immerse themselves in a book near the fireplace in Billings. Depending on your preference, there is likely a little taste for you. UVM provides students with a number of facility options ranging from the solitude of secret study places to the flurry of high-octane hockey games.

The athletic facilities are simply beautiful, which is due to the University's commitment to provide its students with updated equipment. Best of all, the whole facility overlooks the soccer field and offers unobstructed views of the Green Mountains. UVM also has a number of indoor basketball hoops, an indoor track, indoor tennis courts, an ice rink, a climbing wall, and a dance studio. In addition, the athletic complex offers daily and weekly classes in cardio-jam, kickboxing, and yoga. The Billings Student Center houses numerous places to study, the University radio station, club spaces, and the school’s newspaper, Vermont Cynic.
