This past week, I drove throughout the state to meet with school counselors at our annual counselor breakfasts/lunches. This ritual every fall reminds me of the amazing beauty of our state and just how many people come throughout the U. S. to see the spectacular fall foliage.
It also tends to be one of the busiest visit months for high school students looking at colleges. At UVM, we will see more than 1,000 students visit our campus. Between alumni and parents weekend, leaf peeping season and college visitors, Burlington and UVM’s campus will be bustling with people.
This is the perfect time to schedule a visit to UVM. Our website describes a number of visit options from our daily information session and tour (including a student panel) that includes a visit that takes about 2.5 hours to our large open house that allows students and parents to do everything as a daily visit, but also add a college fair with our schools/colleges as well as a financial aid session. Interested in a smaller, more personalized visit? Consider attending a Vermont in Person day that includes a class visit. Reservations for all visit programs are strongly encouraged.
Don’t forget the hotel reservation! Burlington can fill during this time of year. You can refer to lodging options on our website.
We can’t wait to welcome you to campus!
