VTC is a technical college, which means thatBrightComputer Science
VTC is a technical college, which means that the instructors are generally there because of an interest in teaching, not research or something else. VTC is a small college. The upshot is that you'll only have a few large classes (all gen-eds like business law) and can therefore get individual attention, but the downside is a distinct lack of social opportunities. VTC's courses are definitely harder and more interesting than what the Community College of Vermont offers, which is to be expected of an institution which has an actual selection process. Their software and electrical programs (e.g. computer engineering) are well thought out and difficult, and I've heard great things about other programs like dental. I cannot speak to the quality of other programs.VTC is not the best school in the world, but you do get incredible return for the amount of money spent.

I was a CPM student from out ofOther
I was a CPM student from out of state and I have to be honest if you are an out of state student do not even bother to go to this school for the CPM program. The teachers are extremely biased and negative towards out of state people, especially those who are not from new england, and they only help you get jobs in Vermont. The CPM program could be very good and helpful but the teachers in the program are not very good and it is not worth your time and money. I would only recommend the CPM major if you just want to get a degree to help get a better job, not if you want to learn anything about construction. And don't let them fool you with saying the program is "hands on" because it is far from it. The most hands on thing we did was build a shed, and anyone interested in construction should be able to build a shed so it was pointless to do.

I am a Respiratory student at the WillistonSuper BrilliantOther
I am a Respiratory student at the Williston Campus.The campus is small and there are not many students but Burlington is only a few miles down the road so there is always something to do. I have no problem finding my teachers and it is easy for me to contact them if I need to. The respiratory program is hard but it is worth it if you really want it.

As for the dorms there are only 50 students living there. We do have public safety but they are not as extreme as the Randolph campus. The Williston campus is not a party campus but like I said before UVM is right down the road if you did want to go to parties.

This is a really good school to get your degree because it is all hands on. I feel well prepared.The only thing I don't like is that the campus is not the main site so we often get forgotten and when you do need something you have to send a billion emails to people in Randolph who shrug you off. The staff in Williston is a lot nicer than in Randolph for sure.
