What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the people I've encountered. I will say that some are too politically active and protest before considering all options. Students agree we don't judge but if you are a Republican, don't recycle, eat meat, or a male people will generally rebel or at least point it out. I love my friends and the tight knit community. Some professors don't seem passionate or informed about what they teach, but they are amazing people who have done incredible things in their lifetime. It's pretty easy to get bored but the atmosphere is overall something I wouldn't trade.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a great college if you are looking for a small, private, and tight knit college. Great teachers and great people. The food is so so but they have many options for vegans and vegetarians! They have varsity sports and intramural sports! Also they have great events on the weekends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Green Mountain College is a environmental liberal arts school with a purely nature feel. Most classes relate to the environment and it is a very different way to get your education. I thoroughly enjoyed the campus and the class size. Vermont is beautiful and so is the campus. The school is extremely small and close nit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Beautiful campus, but the student body is too small, with a lot of drama between social groups. Also very expensive - most alumni I know have been struggling with student loan debt and finding a good paying job after graduating. I wasn't happy with my education by senior year, but it is difficult to transfer out. As with anywhere, a lot of your experience is what you make it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a good school if you fit in well with the culture, and also if you don't mind living in the middle of nowhere where the stores close at 5 pm. I really like the elementary education program, and they give you a lot of opportunities to get field experience. The social life is very cliquey and it can be hard to make friends if you don't drink or smoke. There is not a lot of participation in most clubs. Overall it has its pros and cons, but if you like it there it will be an amazing experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I appreciate GMC's community atmosphere and commitment to environmental issues. Professors are available to talk, collaborate on research, and offer guidance. However, GMC is not academically rigorous. Be prepared to create your own academic challenges.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

As a high school senior I took on too many activities at once. I wish I had known that it was more important to be filling out scholarships than it was to take a few extra college courses at a nearby community college. During my senior year I got so overwhelmed that I let time slip by and didn't pay close attention to deadlines, or how soon I should have been working on scholarships. High school is very important, it’s a stepping stone to college for a reason; I wish I had payed more attention to learning what my teachers were teaching me rather than just trying to pass. If I had, I would have known more in my college economics class, and I wouldn't be having to learn little things about essays, and grammar the hard way, now.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known what plagiarism was, and how easily something could be considered plagiarism.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who is open minded, liberal, and wants to develop themselves in a sustainable way. The ideal student would be someone who wants to make a positive environmental impact, they need to have an adventurous spirit and love the outdoors. This college is a veruy casual, supportive, and close nit community.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself to slow down and to not take things too seriously. There are many things in life that can wait until I am out of college. I used going awa to school to build a barrier between my mother and I. I would tell myself to be kinder to her.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I knew how dead campus would be during the winter months. I also wish I brought ice skates with me.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself Senior year is a very important year and not to take it lightly. Senior year is the preparation for what comes after. Try and challenge your mind with classes that are going to prepare you for college so you can be ahead. Take classes that can be counted as college credits to get them out the way. I would also tell myself to get involved in clubs or organizations becuase that can be very beneficial to your future. I would tell myself to give basketball all you got despite the lack of experience of the other players. Also get help preparing for the SATs and Acts as well becuase those are test you want to do really good on. Don't take the easy way out, apply yourself and strive for excellence and not just average.
