The MMG department is the best at UVM. It provides the perfect balance of the top-notch facilities of a big school with the personal feel and education of a small school environment. I cannot thank the faculty enough for providing so many opportunities in student research, teaching assistant positions, and many interesting lab and non-lab classes. I truly feel that the MMG curriculum has provided me with a strong background to succeed, while still allowing the time to enjoy all that UVM and Vermont has to offer. Overall MMG is an excellent program and I am so glad to have been a part of it.
