  • Walking around the University of Vermont was very pleasant. I was there during the summer, so not too many students. But the buildings were very nice (mostly brick) and everything was kept very clean....  more »
  • Walking on campus was very nice although several buildings are under construction/renovation (July 2017). The student cafeteria to eat at noon at good price. Nice campus and beautiful buildings; a free shuttle bus runs up to University City

  • It's a state run school, whatta expect, progress! STD central, drunks glorification. Nah, I got a online education, there is an app for that U know. It's a party school, that's all. For those who own legal weapons, UVM used 2 offer a pubic safety safe to leave them in, then they got rid of that policy, really, vermont is gun country ya stupid liberal morons.
  • Just had a great visit for my son. Definitely a top choice, lots to offer, beautiful lake Champlain and mountains nearby. Small city but plenty to do and strong academics and many areas of study to choose from.
  • My dream university ...awesome campus ,eminent faculties and many exciting events...
  • Their bike team has some pretty cool Hawaiian shirts
  • I normally never leave reviews online but I feel obligated as a University of Vermont alumnus to share my opinion, and I would be doing a disservice to others by not. The engineering building, Votey Hall, is shockingly underequipped and undermaintained in certain areas. The largest issue is a lack of decent computers available to students. Currently there are only three computer labs and two virtual computer labs in Votey (all three computer labs are booked by classes more often than not, and schedules are not posted so good luck getting into one during the day when you need to). The virtual computer labs can only handle light web browsing and cannot handle any computer-aided design (CAD) work. The three regular computer labs are sufficient for light CAD work but cannot handle anything of a useful size without crashing or causing a work standstill due to performance issues. There are many professors that are amazing and I will remember them for the rest of my life. There are also many professors that should not be teaching university students, and I will also unfortunately remember them for the rest of my life. Avoidance of these bad professors is impossible in certain required classes, since they are the only professor teaching that class during a given semester. The College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS) Student Services is absolutely top notch, and you can always get help from them when you need it. Diversity classes are required for graduation at UVM. These diversity classes have a common theme that is brought up at least once a week – “All white people are racist”. This phrase is said multiple times word for word by the professors, and regurgitating this on daily homework assignments is absolutely essential for a satisfactory grade. My experiences as a heterosexual white male were not welcomed in the classroom, nor are they openly valued anywhere on campus. You are expected to keep your mouth shut and not to stray from the accepted norms. As a heterosexual white male I had to walk on eggshells from the moment I walked on campus to the moment I walked off of it for the last time. Any misconstrued statements or deliberately misconstrued statements can earn you a visit from the UVM Bias Response Team. Looking back at the time that I spent at UVM, I feel incredibly let down. The University of Vermont is supposed to be Vermont’s flagship university, and I feel that there was little value for the money that I paid to attend. If I could turn back the clock I would more than willingly go somewhere else, even if that meant having to leave my home state of Vermont.
