Castleton is truly ?the small university with a big heart?. During my time at Castleton, I had the opportunity to be part of the Spartan family in many ways. I graduated in the Spring of 2017 with a B.S. in Biology. The science department, like other departments, was a close-knit group. The small classroom sizes allowed each student to get the individual attention they needed to succeed. At Castleton, you're not just a number, you're a person. Professors know your name, have conversations with you, and even go to sporting events to show their support.

Castleton offers numerous majors, athletics, and clubs, making it appealing to those who want to do it all.

I entered my Freshmen year undeclared but was able to find the right major for me through the guidance of advisors and professors. The campus is beautiful, reflecting a true Vermont experience and was well-kept throughout my entire career there. One of the most important aspects of Castleton is that it's safe. I never felt uncomfortable walking to my dorm or to the parking lot. Overall I had a great experience here and would highly recommend touring the campus when looking for schools to experience the beauty and welcoming feeling in person, that's how I determined Castleton was right for me!

Castleton offered a variety of classes an clubsQuite BrightChemistry
Castleton offered a variety of classes an clubs for every student to participate in. Professors are often available throughout the day if you need help outside of class, or you can schedule a meeting with the professor. The best part of Castleton for me was the amount of hands on experiences that were available. There are many grants available for students to do research in any field. There are also opportunities to do summer internships both with the school or with other organizations. I do not regret my decision to go to Castleton. All of the research and hands on experiences lead me to my job in my field.

Castleton was an amazing experience for me.Not so brightOther
Castleton was an amazing experience for me. I loved the location in a small town in Vermont. I was able to find a job in campus that was not a work study. Also, I was able to build friendships with my classmates and professors during my time here. This school gave me the tools I needed to get into graduate school. Overall I would suggest CU to anyone looking to major in the sciences.
