University of Vermont Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (19)
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.
Burlington is a great college town with everything to offer from hiking and skiing to good bars. Civil Engineering is really intimate in your junior and senior year, and the professors are invested in you and are in general really cool people who do big things. Look up D. R. if you need proof.
UVM is a pretty sweet school. Way more expensive than it should be but Burlington is sick. Probly one of the coolest college towns out there. Really fun place to live, especially during the summer. You can walk to pretty much everywhere you want to go which is great for college kids.
The nursing program offered at UVM is phenomenal! State of the art Simulation Labs are helpful and allow students to practice the nursing skills they are learning in a safe non-judgmental environment. The instructors are very attentive to their students and give helpful feedback.
The University of Vermont provided me with a well rounded in depth education that prepared me for a professional career in sustainable agriculture. The professors truly care about your education and success. Burlington is also a beautiful town with plenty of things to do.
