Fall is in full swing here in New England! What a beautiful time to explore the University of Vermont for our Vermont college! Seriously – I’ve been following their Instagram the past few days. Check it out for some amazingly beautiful pictures of the campus and of Burlington.
College in the Spotlight: University of Vermont
Location: Burlington, VT (a 3 hour drive from Lowell)
Enrollment: 9,970 undergrads, 1,317 graduate students
The University of Vermont was established in 1791, making it the 5th oldest college in New England after Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, and Brown.
Travel & Leisure Magazine ranked Burlington as the #1 college town in the US. The town boasts a 12 mile bike path around beautiful Lake Champlain, more than 100 restaurants, 14 public parks, 45 art galleries, and 3 sand beaches within walking distance of campus.
UVM offers 100 bachelor degree programs. Here are some unique programs that stuck out to me: Coaching, Management and the Environment, Medical Radiation Sciences, Plant Biology, Vermont Studies, and Wildlife and Fisheries Biology. From Accounting to Zoology, they have it all!
Everyone loves getting mail. UVM students can make their mom’s (or dad’s, grandparent’s, friend’s, etc.) day by sending her a postcard – for free. The UVM Love Project is all about sharing our love and gratitude publically. You can pick up a post card from the student life office and either mail it or turn it back into the office so it can be posted on their Tumblr account for all to see!
All 18 Varsity sports at the University of Vermont are offered at the NCAA Division 1 level. The Catamounts have a long tradition of academic excellence, winning the America East Academic Cup seven times in the past 9 years. This award is presented to a college whose student-athletes earn the highest grade point averages.
