  • What our students have to say...

    I am so glad I transferred into MMG. My first year at UVM was great, but changing my major to microbiology made it even better. I really appreciated the one-on-one time I was able to get with professors and advisors. You also feel lucky because some of the best professors and advisors at UVM are in MMG! I never felt like a number - though it's hard to do that at UVM at all. All my courses were always challenging but in the best way - I always felt like what I was learning was relevant and on the forefront of current knowledge. The labs are super fun and really helped me become confident with my laboratory skills! My favorite thing about the MMG department is the fact that it feels like an extended family. I rant and rave about how great UVM is overall but, being a microbiology major definitely contributed to a lot of my success and good memories at UVM.
