If you like frigid weather (we're talking -30), isolation, ex*****ve drugs and going to class with a lot of trust fund kids who screwed around too much at boarding school even for daddy's money to buy a place at Harvard, it's for you. It wasn't for me.

My freshman year it snowed on the day I went home. That was May 17th. No idea why it would attract a lot of downhill skiiers. You can ski cross country right out of your dorm, but its a long way from the hills.

For what it's worth, a lot of the students spent most of their time stoned talking about how cool UVM is. I never figured out why they didn't just go there, in that case.

Thanks for the update. My nephew went there. I wasn't sure why, but he seems to fit into your description. He's not exactly a trust fund kid but all his friends seem to be. How come it took you 2 yrs to get away?

i was going to get the 99 jay pass, but since its a no go this year. Im going to bush again, hoping that i can get there more than last year.

UVM guys, why dont we take this to another thread. I already feel guilty for hijacking this one to begin with

Yeah. I don't feel like opening one though. I'm leaning strongly towards Jay/Bolton, but I'm still waiting to see where everyone else is going. I don't have a car so I need to either take a bus or find rides.

Rather than leaving after my freshman year I decided to let the school pay for me to study in Denmark in my third semester. I was on a pretty sizable scholarship, so it would have cost me a lot more to go away on the same program after transfering. The SLU tuition was so much higher than the tuition for the Denmark Program that I ended up getting my room and board, airfare and a week-long trip to Russia paid for on top of the tuition. I figured that was worth enduring an extra semester in the North Country for.

I can't let it go...

This just in from the UVM Alumni letter I get online....

The University of Vermont moved up four places in U.S. News & World Report’s ranking of the nation’s top public universities, from 43rd to 39th
place among over 500 public colleges and universities in the nation.


Not bad; not in the very top tier, but in the top 10%.

The athletes at UVM seem to do pretty well....

The University of Vermont has been awarded the America East Academic Cup for the second-consecutive season and becomes the first institution in conference history to win the award three times. The 3.14 grade-point
average among UVM student-athletes ties the Catamounts’ own record, set last season, for the highest in the 11-year history of the award.


We never would have won that when I was dragging down the athletic GPA...

If you can stand north east coast skiing which still beats the hell out of NC look up green mountain colleges resort managment program. I am currently enrolled and i love this place. We are accredated un like cmc and we live right on the mountain literally. Not to mention they have a 100 precent placment rate in ski industry jobs. Good jobs mind you.

CMC is accredited. When my wife transferred to DU they took 95% of her credits.

If you are Mormon, pick Utah. If you are Jewish pick UVM (Vermont). Colorado is good but expensive if out of state. Remember, northeast schools all have a winter term where you can have a goof off schedule in January to facilitate skiing. If all else fails, stay put and ride the tram in Gatlinburg!

NAU in Flagstaff is a pretty chill ski college. I'm not sure what difficulty you like to ski, but there's about 35 runs with about half of those being blues and blacks. There's also some nice tree trails and if you don't mind hiking a bit some of the best skiing I've ever done. And the kicker, it's only 15-20 minutes from campus. There's also buses that take you from certain spots in town up to the Snow Bowl.

Yeah, went there. Went to Colby too. By far the best ski college was the American College of Switzerland mentioned in Hemmingway's posts.

I skied every day that winter, raced on some famous courses, and was able to transfer all my credits back.
