          • 1988-1992, Bachelor's degree

            Burlington is a great college town, tons of great people and good fun. Skiing is fantastic as well. The UVM community is a great opportunity to learn and prepare yourself for the next steps in life.

          • 1997-2001, Batchelor of Science

            I was an interstate student living on campus and found that not only was it the other students that made my experience so fantastic but it was also the professors. I studied Wildlife Biology in the Rubenstein school environment and natural resources. I never felt like 'just a number' or 'just another student.' The Professors were fantastic and helped me to achieve my personal goals. I look back now fondly on my time and feel they're more like family to me.
