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.
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.
Overall, Green Mountain is a great place to be if you are about the planet and would like to make a difference weather it be in the future on on-campus now. Everyone is very welcoming and amazing to chat with, you will be sure to feel at home right away.
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.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Green Mountain College is 78%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Make sure you know what you are signing yourself up for. Do not pick classes based on what sounds cool, do it because you want to learn it. If you go to a small school get out into the real world as much as possible, because there is always next weekend to sit around the house.
Vermont winters are a terrible thing. So COLD! Bring your winter jacket!
The best thing about GMC has to be the sense of community. Everyone is willing to help each other out with school work, or with advice on life. There is a great connection that circulates the campus that ties everyone together. We appreciate experiences with one another and with such a small school, friendship is plentiful.
The best and worst thing about it is how small it is. Everyone knows you and by the second week you will know everyone. That can be an advantage or a disadvantage. In the winter time everyone gets in a rut and doesn't do much.
It really needs students' tuition dollars so it is very lenient on students who perform poorly academically or behaviorally. Students are admitted who should not have been, and continue to perform badly while detracting value from classes for others. Many students are easily temped by drugs and alcohol and lack motivation to become involved in activities/programs, or initiate their own. This is a small school and can provide many unique opportunities that some students simply ignore or fail to see.
Green Mountain is more than a college, it's a community. We share our little slice of heaven, and everyone does their part to keep it as wonderful has we can.
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.
envirometly, recie, hibbie,
When I talk to my friends about my school, I always end up coming back to the beautiful environment in and around the campus. There is a scenic little farm on campus where students have the opportunity to work. Also, the campus is within reach of many great hiking trails and mountain peaks, and the college itself owns a nature preserve nearby which is open for students to enjoy. As much as I enjoy the fun we have on campus, I it's nice to have a peaceful and serene place to go. Nothing beats the Vermont scenery.
A bunch of hippies trying to save the world.
It is known for its environmemtal standards and what a small based community it is.
The environmental mission is pretty unique to Green Mountain. Many schools claim it, but more of our students actually live it. We also have a working farm on campus, which is pretty unique.
The dorms are pretty nice. They look really nice from the outside, but when the weather is really harsh, it's reflected inside as well. By this I mean that in the summer it's way too hot, and the winter it's way too cold. The heating and cooling system isn't the best. Also, the furniture in the dorms are pretty old.
Most of the professors have PhD's. They always teach in their fields, except for the case of the core environmental liberal arts classes, which everyone teachers! Teachers are environmentally and socially responsible, just like the students. They're always friendly and accessible. They're not here to make a lot of money, but to make a difference.
-- The most popular groups are DREAM (mentoring), International Awareness Club, and all sports.
-- I play lacrosse/soccer. The teams are made up of some of the same people. They're mostly for fun and not very competitive.
--Students in their dorms sometimes leave their doors open.
-- Athletic events are not popular with the exception of men's basketball. Guest speakers are not popular unless made mandatory for class. Theater is reasonably popular.
-- People don't really "date", they mostly will have casual sex.
-- Every semester there is midnight breakfast, which happens the night before the day before finals :)
-- People party pretty hard.
-- There are no sororities or fraternities on campus.
-- If you don't want to drink on the weekend, there is always a campus event.
When you step off campus you see Main Street! On Main Street there are restaurants, a movie theater, a hardware store, an autobody shop, an autobody supply company, a Vermont Store, a realtor, a bookstore, a library, gas stations, the local high school, a vintage clothing store, a hunting/sportsman store, and many other cute little shops/businesses.
I decided to come to this school for a variety of reasons. I liked the environmental mission, that you could double major, environmental studies was a possibly major, and there is an honors program.
