Hi Olivia. Students can participate in art at UVM and in the greater Burlington area in multiple ways, no matter their major. UVM has an Art Club open to all majors and students can chose to live in the Arts and Creativity Residential Learning Community which is built around interests not majors. Additionally, Burlington has a vibrant arts scene including the Flynn Theater, ArtsRiot, Burlington City Arts, and the Fleming Museum to name a few.

Known for

Lots of interesting clubs and activities
LGBTQ+ friendly
Beautiful campus
Close to activities in a city
Accessible and helpful professors



This school is a great place for you if you're naturally extroverted. Unfortunately, I'm not. It wasn't a good place for me because I didn't mesh well with the school atmosphere. However, the UVM Neuroscience program is phenomenal. That is the only regret I have about transferring.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The school's primary focus was NOT education. Rest assured that if you study and do care about your grades, you will not fit in here.

Hiking And Backpacking



Large campus and student body are intimidating at first but then relationships slowly form and familiarity grow. The second semester has been much better than the first.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Course work can be very tough especially if you don't land a good professor.

Gwenyth Willard
Hiking And Backpacking
Pet Care



The classes are very engaging and I am able to learn a lot from each class. If you need help in any classes there are a bunch of ways to access help.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some of the business classes change your block schedule for exams so they are late at night, and it is required but not put on your schedule.

Liat Grutman
Photography and Photo Editing



I found it difficult to receive help sometimes from my academic support team at UVM, but once I changed my major things changed for the better. I am extremely happy I go here.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I wish I considered taking my Gen-ed's at a community college since it's so expensive to go here out of state.

I like how there is always something going on on campus. I also like the area since I am an avid skier. The professors in the CALS department are always willing to help. SAS has been helpful during times of medical challenges.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

As someone with celiac disease and other medical challenges, I found the dining halls very unaccommodating.

Cat Jones

I really like the sense of community I see here. Lots of school pride.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I don't like the current inaction from the school I've seen in response to the sexual assault allegations.
