  • Being naked in Vermont is legal…
  • The "backyard" of the school is beautiful and you can pretty much do whatever you want back by the river…
  • Teachers here are AMAZING. they are laid back, always available to help or just hang out…
  • You will not find people as great as you do here (if hippies, environmentalists, and music-lovers are your thing)
  • We have a farm, with working oxen, and it is a great thing to have on campus (RAW MILK!!)
  • Cons-

  • The administration here care more about money than YOU.
  • It is MANDATORY on-campus living for all 4-years(literally, you will not get off campus unless you are +23, married, or disabled)
  • It is mandatory to be on the meal plan for all 4-years (literally, and it costs $4,000 just for food per academic year which is about 8 months…-do the math)
  • Because we are advancing to be a more "sustainable school" (at least more so than others), we are gaining attention now for the first time. This causes a lot of what we do to be fake, so we can attract more students and press.
  • GMC is trying to change the look of the student body (they want less "hippies" which in actuality are the ones who are the most passionate about what they do, in my opinion)
  • There are only about 500 students and 2000 people total including the town where the college is. There are two bars in town, but besides that NOTHING.
  • If you ski or snowboard, you may like it up here because killington is only 40 minutes away! But if you like to make your own decisions about where you live and what you eat, DO NOT COME HERE! YOU WILL REGRET IT!
