"Northern Vermont University - Johnson formerly known as Johnson State College is a small, personable, affordable college nestled in the green mountains of northern Vermont. Highly recommend the Outdoor Education program as classes are active and experiential with many opportunities to facilitate activities and demonstrate ones learning. The staff is very knowledgeable, helpful, and patient. I found that it was easy at this small school to receive guidance and support from academic advisors outside of classroom hours. I also loved spending time with my guidance counselors who were very personable and uplifting. Being in the Outdoor Education major, it would be hard for me to rate the other majors as many of my classes were off-campus. However, the few elective courses I took were very enjoyable including a health and wellness class on meditation and a Native American sweat lodge ceremony course. I think students of the Outdoor Education major were very close due to our extended overnight experiences in the backcountry with one another. If I was not in this major, it may have been hard for me to find friends as there did not seem to be many people on campus most days. Although there is not much to do in Johnson, the school is only an hour away from Burlington and a half an hour away from Stowe. There are a lot of hiking and ski trails if you enjoy outdoor activities. I think school is what you make of it and finding what you are passionate about. If you are passionate about what you are studying, you will make the most of your experience regardless of the location."

"My college experience was great. There is a wide variety of majors to choose from. The professors were top notch, choosing to teach in rural Vermont for a better quality of life. The campus is isolated which lends to a focus on academics and extracurricular activities. My art department really allows you to work and choose your median of choice."
