What our students have to say...
I joined the program when I was a second semester sophomore. Until that point I had encountered only mildly interesting classes and mediocre advisers and did not expect the MMG courses or professors to be much different. I could not have been more wrong. The advice and support I received in my first months, from both my advisor and professors made for a smooth transition into the department I could not have been more grateful for. My courses themselves were an even bigger surprise. Never had I had information presented to me in such an interesting and interactive way. Although my instructors had very high expectations for every student, their genuine interest in everyoneâ€™s success made it worth every extra hour I spent working outside of class. MMG is, in my opinion, the best department at the University of Vermont. I have never felt such a sense of belonging anywhere else throughout my academic career. The students, and more importantly the staff, are a group of intelligent, caring, wonderful people who helped me develop a love for my studies I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I consider myself very lucky to have stumbled upon the MMG department and could not have been happier with the academic experience they gave me.
