University of Vermont Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (23)
The University of Vermont is located in a beautiful area of Vermont that is a cross between a rural campus setting and a small city. I really enjoyed my experience in the Honors College, which allowed me the experience to develop an undergraduate honors thesis on a topic of my choice. I also really enjoyed taking Honors courses, which were small and focused on very specific topics. Outside of the honors program at UVM, the classes (for the most part) are small and it is easy to make close connections with professors. All of the faculty I worked with were accommodating and willing to meet to help you better understand a topic from class. Ultimately, I had a great undergraduate experience at UVM and I feel well-prepare for my future career.
When I decided to attend the University of Vermont my parents were disappointed. They had wanted me to study at a more "prestigious" school and worried about the quality of education I would receive. While the University of Vermont is not an Ivy league school it is a school where, if one has the drive for knowledge, then you can go far. All across campus and in the surrounding town of Burlington there are passionate and creative people doing what they love. Whether you aim for a career in the sciences or in the arts the University of Vermont fosters an atmosphere of ambition and dedication to your goals. If you, as a student, show enthusiasm in your work then your teachers and advisors will respond in turn. I was able to develop lasting relationships with teachers. This meant, when I was applying to gradshool, these teachers helped me with the process, offered advice, and wrote recommendations. The University of Vermont doesn't just prepare you for the academic side of your future but also the interpersonal aspects as well.
UVM is a great place to pursue your undergrad degree. It is situated in an amazing location with mountains, lakes, and other natural resources. The staff and students all (mostly) share a love for their surroundings and a willingness to learn. However, you will find those who are more motivated than others. In general and introductory classes, it can be hard to stand out and learn in a hands on way; however once you get to the smaller classes is when the magic starts!
University of Vermont provided an informative and diverse undergraduate degree. Not only did I really enjoy the professors in the department of Geography, but professor who taught general requirements courses. As a child of white, affluent suburbia I really appreciated the diverse environment of the University of Vermont and the city of Burlington.
I loved UVM. It was a great school for people who want to study in a community of people focused on social impact and environmental sustainability. The sociology program helped me think outside the box and explore a range of topics and issues and allowed me to really explore as a student.
The University of Vermont was a great school and I learned a lot from them. One thing that I which they did more of though was push study abroad because I think it would have been a great experience but I never really was able to get it figured out.
The campus is beautiful, the people/locals are friendly and the professors are understanding.
Great location and beautiful views. A great place to study ecology and natural resources and faculty are committed to sustainability and natural resource conservation.
Absolutely loved the college. Had a lot of environmentalists which is not fitting to my personality but they did not push it on you. Vermont is the best.
It is a great school in a vibrant community. As with all schools, you need to choose to avoid substance abuse that is accessible everywhere. UVM cares about the environment, has plenty of opportunity for community involvement, and has an excellent education standard. Burlington VT is surrounded by many other colleges as well as the university, and the downtown area has opportunities for part-time jobs as well as a variety of leisure activities. You need to be able to handle winter. The wind blows off Lake Champlain with a vengeance. You also need to be fit to handle the steep hills and large, sprawling campus. I love my alma mater and recommend it highly.
