  • What our students have to say...

    I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do when I first entered UVM. I knew I enjoyed science but I figured I would just start out with biology and narrow down what I wanted to do. After talking to a MMG SI instructor for organic chemistry and hearing how much he enjoyed the MMG department I thought I would give it a shot. I was amazed how helpful and beneficial my first unofficial advising meeting was. I switched into the college of agriculture life sciences that day and I haven't looked back. The level of teaching by the professors have been nothing but outstanding all the way through my undergraduate experience. The student labs have also been really helpful in preparation to field laboratories. I hope to use what I learned in my MMG classes in the future whether it is academic or industry research.
