It's a great school complemented with beautiful natural surroundings. Unabashedly liberal; the school actually focuses its advertising towards and is intended for people who tend towards the left end of the political spectrum. You will feel like you don't belong there if you are conservative minded- in fact conservatives are often viewed here as being totally immoral (at least in my personal experiences here). Where these people got the idea that political ideology and morality are so closely connected I will never know. In fact the lack of diversity I experienced here was astounding. I'm white, and even I felt uncomfortable at times with how white campus was (I am from a large city, which could account for this). If you are used to diversity this school will probably seem like a very strange place, or at least it did to me. Many of the students do not seem to be aware that not everywhere is like New England. Overall I would agree with what the other person said- don't go to UVM unless you are from the Northeast USA, as it is tailored exactly towards people from this demographic.
