Spent a wonderful weekend at the UVM campus in Burlington visiting our grandson who si in his freshman year. We were very impressed with how open the campus was and how friendly all the students we ran into were. A gorgeous setting in the height of a spectacular fall makes us all wish we were back in college.

We drove around this beautiful campus to look at the buildings and even went to the Catholic Church to see how it looks like. Like everything I have seen in Vermont, this university is neat, clean, organized. A total pleasure to visit.

What a beautiful place!...if only I could go back to college again :) Located right in the heart of Burlington, UVM is an awesome University! People are welcoming and everything about the school is incredibly impressive! Highly recommend.

Perfect location at the top of the hill in Burlington, VT. Look right down the main road and see Lake Champlain. Great school with a friendly, relaxed vibe.

Founded in 1791, UVM is the 5th oldest university in New England. Beautiful campus, and engaged student body. Drive or walk around to enjoy the hill top environment. This is one of America's great state university's and it brags about its well regarded College of Medicine. Did I mention that I am a proud graduate?

My daughter attends UVM and I must say it's one of the best city campuses that we've seen. It's centrally located in the city, but still has a traditional campus feel.

We visited the campus with our daughter. I thought the campus was very easy to walk and pretty. There was a drought so I think some of the areas were not as green as they normally are. The campus as a good mix of architecture and buildings that are still around from the original campus. There are some nice areas... More

We were walking around town and thought we would pop up the very steep hill to check out this campus. My daughter had dreamed of attending this school, but we never even looked at it because it was so expensive for us (Out of state). So I thought as long as I was here I'd check it out. It is...

Burlington is a great college city and UVM is the pearl of the area. It is a state university, but it is a great size, not overwhelmingly large. The range of majors/programs offered is broad and the onsite medical center accessible to pre-med/med school students is a tremendous benefit.
