Depending on your major, this may be aQuite BrightEducation
Depending on your major, this may be a good school for you. If you are interested in arts, theater, education, english, writing, television, etc. this school does not have a place for you. They fund their athletics and sciences and could care less about other students. The students themselves are either snobby, rich, arrogant, and think they're the most intelligent people on earth, OR they are drunken, idiotic, high, sexist buffoons who can't even write 5 page essays :'(( it's a tragedy. Huge sexual assault problems at this school, huge assholes too. PEACE OUT UVM.

Although I knew I wanted to goto uvmQuite BrightNursing
Although I knew I wanted to goto uvm the second I stepped on campus. I'm rethinking my decision. It's highly expensive for what you get. You're forced to move off campus third year and it's stressed to sign leases in the fall of sophomore year. People are pretty self absorbed and have the "everyone else is doing things wrong, I must be right and fix it" mentality, especially regarding human rights, woman's rights, and global climate change. Don't get me wrong I believe in all of these things but to have others act as though I am wrong because I'm not rioting and picketing over such things is not the environment I was looking for. The dining halls are sub par although they act as though they're all local goodness. The res halls are overpriced and there is little floor interaction in my building. Overall I wish I had made another choice.

I know that over the past several decades UVM has beem publicized as one of the "Public Ivys", however, after my experience here there is absolutely nothing that distinguishes this school from another state school. UVM is way over priced compared to other state schools. Basically the out-of- state students are subsidizing the in state students. What a rip off of a school.
