Enjoy life in Burlington

International student Pedro from Madrid matriculated from the Global Gateway Program and studied neuroscience at UVM. He said:

“Burlington is a nice city. It’s very safe and quiet with nice and polite people. Also the University is really good and highly ranked. There are a lot of mountains around, which are good for hiking, camping, or skiing and many other fun activities. The place is great for outdoor activities. It is quiet and small but very charming.”
