Reasons to attend and to not attend University of Vermont

To Attend

  • “The community is really nice. People want to have a good time and try to include you as a friend. You always meet new people.”
  • “If you like skiing and snowboarding, definitely go to UVM. Everyone is going to the mountains in the winter.”
  • “Easy going, flexible people do really well at UVM. If you see yourself as that, you’d do well here.”
  • “It’s big enough that you’ll always see people you know on campus, but you also meet new people every single day.”
  • “How much the professors care about you. They really are invested in your individual success. I can only speak to the liberal arts side, but every professor that I’ve had has really cared about how I feel and will ask you about your weekend and stuff.”
  • “UVM is a very eco-friendly school. They have The Real Food Challenge and they try to bring in food in within a 50-mile radius. UVM and the Burlington community are into supporting local. We have farmers’ markets in the Dudley H. Davis Center and really support the local farmers and everything that has nothing to do with industrializing.”

To Not Attend

  • “There are going to be in larger classes. If you don’t like being an anonymous face in a class, then it’s not for you. That being said, the big classes have T.A.’s that are super accessible.”
  • “If you don’t like the cold and snow. People can be seen wearing a ski mask to class because of the wind, the snow, and the freezing cold.”
  • “The distance from a lot of things is a negative. You have to take connecting flights to get to Burlington.”
  • “If you like smaller schools, UVM might not be the right school because UVM is big. It can be overwhelming for people who are not used to bigger schools.”
  • “The fact it is a bubble. I’m a huge believer in diversity. It’s is majority white, and majority affluent. I really think that education comes from competing and diverse opinions and having people who have different experiences and backgrounds as you do, and I don’t think you can find that easily.” [About 82% of students are White. The median family income is $121,500.]
