Fiske: There Could Hardly Be a More Appealing Place than UVM

Fiske Guide to Colleges

According to the 2010 Fiske Guide to Colleges, "For a (student) sizing up public universities, there could hardly be a more appealing place than UVM. The size is manageable, Burlington is a fabulous college town, and Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains are at your doorstep. Vermont feels like a private university … wide academic offerings and an abundance of clubs and co-curricular pursuits … draw students from around the country." The guide goes on to describe UVM students as "giving their all, both in the classroom and outside."
