UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT


In the next few years, your life will look entirely different than it does now. And that’s the best news ever. Because college is a time when you’ll explore, learn, make friends, eat, hike mountains (or ski down them), take risks, ace tests, have adventures, prepare for a career, serve others. The list goes on.

And we might be a little biased, but we happen to believe the University of Vermont is the very best place you could have your college adventure. Your discovery. Your years where you’ll become authentically you.

Because we’re home to some of the top teachers—and researchers—in the world. Who will above all be your professors. Some of the brightest and kindest students. And some of the most beautiful surroundings in the country. Like the waters of Lake Champlain. The vistas of Mount Mansfield. The bustling streets of Burlington. The chocolate chunks in a Ben and Jerry’s pint. The piney scent of our air. Cheese. We could go on, but we think we’ll let the rest of this book do the explaining for us.

TURN THE PAGE. And meet the next chapter of your life.

Academic Ecosystem The Lake

THE CAMPUS Home to 10,267 undergraduates, 1,485 graduate students, 461 medical students and 1,600 full- and part-time faculty. And lots of trees. And interesting labs. And…you get it. THE CLASSROOM Forty-seven percent of our classes have fewer than 20 students. Which means more face time with your professors. THE CITY OF BURLINGTON Ranked #1 Town in America by Travel + Leisure magazine. Culture. Cuisine.

You. Here’s where we want you to start thinking about the University of Vermont as an academic ecosystem. Made up of smaller, awesome ecosystems. A whole as amazing as its parts.

Quaintness. Enough said. THE MOUNTAINS The Adirondacks provide a beautiful backdrop to just about every kind of UVM experience. And Stowe, Sugarbush, Smuggler’s Notch and Bolton are just an hour from our campus. Lucky you. And you might hike Mt. Mansfield right away during TREK, our unique, first-year team-building program. THE LAKE Lake Champlain is one of our most useful—and beautiful—classrooms.

Here, there’s always an opportunity to do groundbreaking undergraduate research that helps humankind. For example, Hannah Ward wanted to know: how does trauma affect the human body, and what are its lingering effects? She began to work with Dr. Matthew Price and our Center for Emotion, Stress and Technology during her sophomore year to answer those questions. By using their resources, along with the resources of our on-campus Medical Center, she saw her honors thesis on cortisol reactivity and future health repercussions all the way through.

Some of Our Labs Don’t Appear on a Campus Map. The world is our classroom, after all. A great example of this is the Melosira, a research boat where faculty and students learn about water sampling, gill netting, fish trawling, sediment coring, the native trout population and more.

During a class, students might examine tiny silver trout with their bare hands. Their research contributes to the larger studies on replenishing the trout population. After they record their findings, they can take in the Lake Champlain views. It’s learning at its most scenic, while maintaining the health of an international body of water.

We have a 20-year leadership reputation in this field.

We were the first public school to sign the “Real Food Campus Commitment,” which means we pledged to purchase 20% "Real Food" by 2020; goal achieved 2017.

“Real” means that food should fulfill at least one of the following categories: local and community-based, fair, ecologically sound and humane.

Unlike other schools, we’re: In the heart of a vibrant regional foodproducing area First to offer bachelor's, master's, and doctoral programs in food systems A leader in linking natural sciences with social issues and the humanities

That’s the reality at the University of Vermont. But don’t let us convince you. Come see for yourself.
