I really like UVM in terms of social life and learning. I've easily been able to make great friends through my learning community and through extracurricular activities that the students run. The professors are also great and we have great labs available for students. I wish the administration was better though and I've been disappointed at how they've treated students and staff.
so i am a freshman so i do not really know what it was like before covid-19 but right now its ok I'm not really involved in anything but from what I have seen everything is pretty relaxed. the teachers I have meet so far are really nice and understanding.
The University of Vermont was an excellent choice for my undergraduate experience. I was looking for a school with challenging academics that was located in an area with access to both urban amenities and rural activities.
During my time at UVM, I was a studying Environmental Studies in the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources. This is one of multiples ways that a student can study the topic. Environmental Studies is a degree offered by multiple schools within UVM and students can choose their path of study depending on the topics they are interested in. I chose to study within the Rubenstein School because the curriculum was rigorous and focused heavily on building a foundational knowledge in the sciences.
I lived both on and off campus while living in Burlington, Vermont. Burlington is such a small city that it was easy to access the downtown area from either living situation. I loved riding my bike, walking, or taking the bus around town. Public Transportation was easy to use and free with use of my student ID. When downtown, there are great restaurants and shops to visit in your free time. I spent a lot of time doing homework at Muddy Waters and thrift shopping at Battery Street Jeans.
Overall, I really loved my time at the University of Vermont for the academics, downtown activity, and general intellectual culture of the area. My only critique is that the tuition is very expensive. I was fortunate to receive a good portion of scholarship money, but still graduated with about $45,000 in debt. That being said, UVM is considered a public ivy and has a very good reputation. I would just encourage any student applying to schools to really consider your career opportunities and goals post-graduation.
I am greatly enjoying being a student at UVM. However, I am a graduate student taking a few courses at a time. Perhaps if I had done my undergrad at UVM, I would have a different opinion. I love living in Burlington. It is a walkable and bikeable city overlooking Lake Champlain. There is a great arts scene and nature is close by.

Finding the right college can be very overwhelming--I remember not really knowing what I wanted from a school when the end of Sophomore Year/ the beginning of Junior Year in High School rolled around and people were starting their search. As a perspective student I looked at what kinds of things I was interested in and lined up schools that seemed to fit the criteria. Many of my friends in High School did the same and ended up at radically different schools than UVM but each of them seems happy and content with their choice. I know that what each of us can say is that, at our seperate schools, we've met some great friends and a lot of friendly faces. It's important to begin college with an open-mind. Forget all about High School cliques and drama (if that were any concern of yours) and start to get to know people for their minds, that's why everyone is at a College or University right? To learn and to grow- through meeting people and experiencing different walks of life you will build your own character and relaize how much you have to offer this world.
My classmates are focused and origional.
I transfered to UVM from a liberal arts school that was considered more academic, but I found that UVM is truly what you make it. I definitely have more opportunities at UVM and my professors are all really helpful as long as you take the initiative to seek them out. I love that at UVM they do not hold your hand and how much you succeed is all based on how much you care. The thing I would change at UVM is the in coming class size because I am a senior and the class of 2015 is huge in comparison--although it still is no where near as big as most state schools. The reaction I get when I tell people that I go to UVM is always very good because it has a great reputation on the East Coast. In the west--I am from the southwest originally--people mostly play into the stereotype but you can overcome that easily, and many of the alumni are very successful and helpful so it is a great networking school. I would also say that because it is a state school, people know that it exists, which is really important after college. The most recent controversy at UVM had to do with the most recent President and some money expenditures, but there is going to be a new President soon, and I think it is fairly tame in comparison with other scandals of similar nature at other universities. There is definitely school pride at UVM, despite the controversy, and many old traditions that make it a fun place to be especially during hockey and ski season.
If you have to take organic Chemistry take it with Sandy!!
Generally the teachers are great and even in big lectures you have the opportunity to become close with your professors.
That we are all hippies, liberals, and don't care about religion.
The one stereotype that I don't think people think of but is very reflective of the student body is that people are generally laid back and friendly. Obviously there are a few students who don't fit the model but walking around campus strangers smile and are happy to be at UVM. This happiness and joy seeps into the campus and makes UVM have a special feeling that I haven't found anywhere else.
The most popular activities and groups at UVM are the Outing Club and the Ski and Snowboarding Club. UVM is really active and most people like to hike, participate in club sports, and ski a lot! Students participate a lot in sports and regularly attend the hockey and basketball games. I cannot talk much about the theater department because I am not really involved in that part of the school, but I know that my friends who are in it love it. School-wide traditions like the Naked Bike Race, and broom ball have a wide-range of participants, and most people meet each other through extra-curricular clubs like the Running Club, the Alpine Ski Club, etc. Because UVM is in Burlington, there is also lots to do off campus from yoga, sailing, to working in coffee shops, etc. Usually, in the winter, I ski on the weekends, and use the week to finish homework, intern, and work, but there is lots to do if you have the time.
Vermont is a beautiful state and Burlington is the ideal college town. The UVM campus is active and liberal, with neither to few or too many students.
Freezing cold and windy all the time, and winter lasts for 6 months.
UVM is a fabulous school that offers myriad courses to satisfy just about any interest, while at the same time being ideally situated for outdoor activities.
Very green, very liberal, fantastic school for people who are interested in exploring diversity among gender. Is not very racially diverse, but does promote acceptance and ultimate equality. Has a reputation for pot and drinking, but it can be avoided if you do not want to get involoved with it. VERY outdoorsy and most people ski/ride.
There are a lot of good things about UVM but I suppose the best thing would be the student / professor interactions. It's not a small university but most class sizes are small enough that you really get to know your professor. I was on a first name basis with a lot of my professors and they really knew me and who I was. You are not just a number or another face in the crowd at UVM. I consider this a valuable reason to attent UVM.
How expensive everything is... the surrounding area, on campus stores, campus food, etc.
A liberal person that isn't a afraid to work hard and is driven towards their career goal.
I think someone who is very competitive would have trouble in this school. A lot of the programs seem to be very self oriented. I also think that someone who is self conscious about themselves would have a hard time. Speaking as someone who isn't tiny and model like, I can recognize that we have a campus filled with "pretty people" and a lot of emphasis is put on that.
The stereotype of students at UVM is that we are all "hippies" and love the environment. Although there are students on campus who are active participators in trying to become more eco-friendly, there are many people who are not as enthusiastic about this. It is easy to become involved in these activities, but it is also easy to fit in if this does not fit your personality.
I loved the location...the beach/lake, mountains, and downtown areas all make Burlington unlike any other college town I have seen.
The land lockedness
Our football team is "undefeated." We don't actually have a football team. Basketball and ice hockey are the two big draws but there's some support for most of the other sports.
