If I were not a scientist, I would be a scientist. Yeah, I heard you. You could take my profession away, but I would just sneak around and be a covert scientist."
—Rory Waterman, UVM professor of chemistry, in a special edition of the journal Inorganic Chemistry
UVM has received a record number of applications for next fall’s entering class—23,936—up nine percent over last year. “There is a buzz about UVM in the high schools we visit,” says Beth Wiser, director of admissions. “UVM offers a first-rate academic experience in a highly desirable location, and students are active and engaged, which leads to their success after graduation. Spreading this story is translating into more applicants.”
