The UVM community is a great opportunity to learn and prepare yourself for the next steps in life. The Business school helped me gain the knowledge I needed to be competitive and the core classes provided a well rounded education.

            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.
