It's kinda hard to live off campus so most people just live on campus. There is a kitchen on all of the floors in the residence halls. Mostly co-ed bathrooms. There is composting in the residence halls (sometimes flies.) There is a piano in Bouge which is nice and there is a TV in all the lounges. You need an Ethernet cable for the internet which can be bothersome. There is build in dressers, cabinets, and amours in the rooms which offers nice storage space. If you don't have an amour you get a closet. The floors are tile and can get cold so you'll probably want a rug.

They will "bust you" if you are being obnoxious but if you aren't causing a commotion or disturbing the peace you can pretty much do whatever you want.

Health & Safety:
I don't feel uncomfortable at all walking around campus by myself at night. There is pretty good lighting and the people are really chill. I wouldn't recommend you go into town alone at night however. You will likely run into some drunks from the bar and as a girl better safe than sorry.

For a small town it's not bad. There is a Mcdonalds like 10 min away and a D&D like 5. There is a deli, pizza place, a bar, a Tae food place (excellent and cheap for the amount of food you get.) as well as a grocery store and a food co-op that you can get local and healthier groceries at. That's about it unless you take the bus to Rutland (20 min away) which as a variety of options including a Panera Bread (Delicious.)

They do offer some cool day trips that you can take through res life. You can go hiking and camping and they have gear you can rent located in the bottom of the student center. There is a small farm on campus complete with chickens, pigs and piglets, veggies, and cows. (You can get raw milk there. Sooooo Goood) There is also a river on campus that is a nice hangout spot. There is a bar a block away that has live music on Tuesday's and the school usually has a few events throughout the week. If you use your imagination you can find something to do. Most people just hangout and usually someone on campus is having a jam session if you like music. There is a art studio on campus that houses the art students work. It is what you make it. Word of advice: as you will find yourself getting bored limit your drinking to Thursday-Sat.

I plan to go WWOOFing which offers you college credit and hands on learning. You sign up with the organization and if you get accepted by a participating farm. You get free housing and food in exchange fro working on the farm. You get knowledge, college, credit, a chance to go somewhere new, and meet new people. The only downside is you have to find your own way to the farm which can be tricky depending on where you go in the world.

Though I don't do drugs myself pretty much everyone here does at the very least pot. Those who do use drugs don't pressure you if you don't though. Do them or don't people don't really care either way. There is usually parties on the weekends. Some get busted but not many. People are pretty open and chill about what they do. If you feel uncomfortable around drugs and alcohol then this defiantly isn't the school for you but as I said you don't feel pressured at all if you don't do anything.

There is no public transportation system that runs directly to the school. You either have to car pool or take a bus to Rutland VT and then take a bus or train from there. In Rutland the train only runs once a day and its usually late at night and a ticket will cost you upwards of $30 one way. You could take the bus to Burlington and there would be slightly more options but they are still pricey. Especially for college students on a budget. Invest in a car if you can or find someone who goes to the same place as you and give them some gas money. It will save you tons of money in the long run.

They did give me a good package considering I was out of state but I didn't get even close to a full ride. I transferred mid year so it might be different if you enroll in the fall. I have a lot of financial need and sadly I still have to pay over $10 grad a year.

If you are going for sustainable agriculture and are looking for a small school it is nice. They have a CSA (community supported agriculture) farm on campus and you have to work so many hours doing both farm chores and veggie chores. Some of the food you pick even ends up in the dining hall which is cool. If you go WWOOFing working on organic farms across the world you can get college credit for it which is a great opportunity to see some of the world while also gaining experience. It's a "unpaid internship" and you get food and housing, working for free but gaining knowledge and credits.

It's college. You will have work and sometimes you will be stressed out about the workload but is manageable. If you put in a bit of effort you will see good results. Some classes are a piece of cake while others are difficult just as in any school.

It's not really the school to go to if you want to go pro. There is usually never a large crowd at the sports games.
College Sophomore 2013-11-30T17:12:21Z
It's a cute small town in Vermont.
College Sophomore 2013-11-30T17:11:28Z
Its not bad. In the Fall it is beautiful. Winter is kind of gloomy but winter tends to have that effect. Embrace it and go play in the snow.
College Sophomore 2013-11-30T17:09:39Z
I wish there was WiFi you have to use the Ethernet cables in the dorms which can suck at times.
College Sophomore 2013-11-30T17:08:00Z
It's not the worst that's for sure! I've had a lot worse at other schools but it sure could use some improvement.

This school is definitely for the environmentalist.
College Freshman 2013-11-13T19:54:30Z
During the beginning of the year its humid. But in the winter, you can definitely tell its winter. Coming from California, be prepared.
College Freshman 2013-11-13T19:53:02Z
It depends on the dorm that you live in. Bogue is where they send all the freshmen and its certainly a freshman experience if you live there.
College Freshman 2013-11-13T19:51:20Z
Its a very small town so if you would like to go anywhere, you'll need a car or you can take the shuttle.
College Sophomore 2013-11-09T19:46:41Z
Lots of international students, more black people but still a whole lot of white people.
College Sophomore 2013-11-09T19:41:24Z
Just be friends with someone that has a car. So you can go to parties in Tinmouth and go to Rutland.
College Sophomore 2013-11-09T19:38:57Z
Parking sucks. You have to pay.

Poultney is a small town. This place is so hipster.

Beauty is subjective. This is a really stupid category.
