What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school. I know a ton of people and even though it is a big school, we are one big community. I know people from every corner of UVM and I am thankful for the diversity and mixture of people at UVM. The professors are great and the students are even greater.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I love the University of Vermont. I choose it because the first time I stepped on campus I felt at home and I haven't stopped feeling that way. Of course there are ups and downs to it. The food and dinning services could be better, they're not great with the snow removal all the time, and there's plenty of problems with housing and finding a job when you don't have work study. But then there's also professors who respond to your emails within an hour, I've found that my department if amazing and everyone in it is friendly (we threw a retirement party for my American Lit professor) and all the classes are engaging, even the ones you don't think will be, like Prehistoric Archaeology. I love my university, sometimes I hate it and can't wait to get off campus but its the area, the high quality education and the people there who keep me loving it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Personally, I love. UVM. There is so much to do, and the views are breathtaking! However, there are some serious issues with the university. For one, the food isn't that quality. Only on central campus can you get the best food, and everywhere else is severely lacking. Everyone I met freshman year was amazing, and the party scene is decent! Socially, there is always something to do either on or off campus. The academics are on par with a good college, and I always felt like I was being challenged. However, there are some HUGE class sizes on campus. My general chemistry lecture probably had more than 150 kids in it! Lake Champlain is beautiful, and in the winter everybody gets a season pass to ski/snowboard. I really loved the university, and would recommend it to others.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In general, I have enjoyed attending UVM. There are many positives, although I'll go over the negatives as well. The atmosphere is friendly, the people are helpful, and the campus is beautiful. Burlington is a great college city (although city is a strong word- don't expect a NYC or Boston, because it is quite small in comparison), and there's generally a lot to do around here. There are plenty of on-campus extracurriculars as well as things to do off campus. The restaurants around here are great, but some of them may be out of the price range of a typical college-student. That goes for many of the stores on Church Street; there are a lot of high-end boutiques that are fun to look at, but no average college student would be able to shop there! Luckily, public transportation here is free- with your student card, you can access the bus with no additional charge, which is pretty cool. You can also pick up free movie tickets to a local theater, valid Thursdays-Saturdays! The laundry is also free, but sometimes it's difficult to find an available washing machine. The dining halls are average- the food is usually alright. Sometimes there is an amazing dish, and sometimes you don't want any of that food in your mouth. There are many different residential halls, and it might be a little misleading when traveling the campus, because you will probably only see the nice ones. For instance, my dorm is pretty outdated, and the walls are very thin. As for the class sizes, it depends on the course you are taking. I'm mostly in smaller classes because of my specific tract, but I took a general psych course and it's in a huge lecture hall. The work-study jobs are varied; I got lucky with mine, because I usually have a lot of free time to do homework (see if you can work the front desk of a residential hall!). Intramural sports are fun- I never did a sport in high school, but I've always wanted to try hockey, so intramural is a good starting point for that. The library is really nice, and it has a tunnel leading to one of the dining halls, which is nice in the bitter cold of the winter (believe me, it gets really cold; it's extra windy, because of our close-proximity to Lake Champlain). There are often fun little events on campus, where you can get a bunch of free stuff- I've won multiple Amazon gift cards this past year, because sometimes people just don't show up, so I'd recommend going to a few of these. As for the negatives, the out-of-state tuition is intense. I have a scholarship and I'm still paying more than I can afford, so I would recommend really thinking about going here before willingly spending so much. Additionally, this past year the university made major cuts to the humanities and languages programs. A lot of courses were cut from my department, Asian Languages and Literatures, as well as the Romance Language department, the Classics department, the English department, etc. Some of the money is going to the STEM programs, but a lot of it is also going to building a new gym, which isn't necessary (there are three gyms on campus) and to a new events center (also unnecessary). Meanwhile, these professors' salaries are being cut, while the people in positions of authority are still getting paid the same excessive amount. So, if you are planning on getting a STEM degree, there's no problem, but if not, definitely be cautious about going forward. Additionally, there are so many distribution requirements here, which is frustrating. So, in general, I have had a good time, and there are definitely a lot of benefits to going here. However, make sure you weigh your priorities carefully. Is the money worth it? Is it worth it to spend time fulfilling these distribution requirements? What if they cut more of my classes? That's my take on UVM.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

They like to promote that they have a large number of "politically active" students but when the students protest the nonsense that happens in the administration they take full offense. Overall that whole issue is stupid and the administration is full of overpaid hypocrites. No weed or tobacco allowed on campus, not to mention the Wellness Environment has totally ruined on campus life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus has a very nice setting with Church Street within walking distance. It also feels very safe to walk around at night with other safety features around campus. Burlington itself is a nice college town with very friendly people. The professors are helpful and available outside of classes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a Freshman at UVM and all I have to say is that I LOVE IT. I come from out of state, and immediately the people in Vermont are much more kind/laid back. They are not materialistic, and only care about your character. It's very refreshing considering I come from an uptight community. The location is absolutely amazing. The sunsets are so beautiful, whenever it snows its like a winter wonderland, and church street is the absolute best place to shop and hang out. I love to ski so the accessibility to ski mountains is pretty rad. UVM guides you through your first year pretty well, but they also give you enough space to really find yourself and how you want to spend your time at UVM. There are countless clubs and opportunities to get involved, as well as free events almost every weekend/weekday! Not a lot to complain about as I spend my first year at UVM! Go Cats!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the culture here. I love the area. Vermont is beautiful and has so much to offer. Burlington is one of the biggest highlights. Moving to UVM was one of the best decisions I ever made. It got me out of my comfort zone into something that would help me learn and grow as an individual. I'm extremely lucky to be involved in some of the best clubs and organizations out there and we have some of the most amazing staff you'll ever meet. GO CATS!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school, I wish everybody could go here. The atmosphere is welcoming, energetic and accepting. The academics are challenging, but rewarding. I have met some of my best friends in the entire world here. My professors have helped not only through academic issues, but through personal as well. My advisers are attentive and the staff is always up to help you. I am extremely involved on campus because every organization is open for joining and all of the members are excited to have you on board.
