I was a transfer student into UVM’s MMG department. The professors and students really tried to make me feel at home and comfortable as though I belonged there. What we learn in our classes are fascinating facts that the professors try to relate to real life. Every day you learn something new and interesting making you want to go to class and excited to learn more. I loved my classes, my favorites being Cloning and Virology, but I think the thing I loved most about the MMG program is the atmosphere. The MMG class size is so small that you end up having the same core group of people in your upper level classes and this makes your friendships with those people very strong. We are basically one large family who all care deeply about each other. The professors and staff actually know who you are and care about you and what is going on outside of the classroom in your life. When my brother was sick all of my professors checked in with me to see how I was holding up and how he was doing. It’s not just a program, its more than that and I am so grateful to have been a member of it.
