It is my first year here and I love it. I was really homesick at first, but after a couple months I found my niche. My professors have been awesome and I feel really welcome here. Overall, there is a somebody for everybody.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

UVM is a place where there are a ton of relatively wealthy students who seem to have the main goal of partying with academics second. However it is possible to get a decent education here. What you put into it you get out of it.
