"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."

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2009
"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."

Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014
"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."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015
"The psychology program is large and at times impersonal but allows one to build the skill of self-motivation. The political science department is incredible. The professors are phenomenal. They are well qualified and always willing to meet with you out of class to explain concepts in detail."

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2014
"UVM is a great university with the opportunity to meet many people. The professors are some of the most helpful and invested teachers I have ever met. Church street downtown has so much to offer and it is so close to the university. You can see the lake from campus."

Kyle Andrew - 2/24/2015
Degree: Environmental Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014
"The Environmental Engineering program, and the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS) as a whole, provides a wonderful opportunity for students to work with the most personable faculty in the country. Not only were their doors always open for help, but I was able to talk to professors about matters that did not concern academics. As a testament to class size, the classes I took through the CEMS school rarely contained more than 75 people. The engineering program at UVM is slightly under funded (in my opinion), but I do not regret coming to this school in anyway."
