First things first, I love this school.BrightNursing
First things first, I love this school. Not going to lie, the first week sucked though. However, my guess this happens for the majority of first semester college students. I strongly suggest that you join an extracurricular activity. This is a rather large school, and it allows you to become close with a small group of people that you see all of the time. It's nice having a roommate, but make sure that you don't spend all of your time with them. Branch out, but know that you have your roommate if you ever need a friend. Your roommate is your family on campus. However, if your roommate sucks, it's not the end of the world. I wasn't all that close with my roommates and I found friends in my major and extracurricular activities. The winters are brutally cold, so don't come here if you're not a winter person! I personally dislike winter and the cold, but I love to snowboard. UVM has great access to the mountains around it.

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.
