University of Vermont

University of Vermont Review

Crowning the hilltop above Burlington is the University of Vermont, known as UVM for the abbreviation of its Latin name, Universitas Viridis Montis, meaning the University of the Green Mountains. With more than 10,000 students, this is the state's principal institution of higher learning. The most architecturally impressive buildings face the green and have gorgeous lake views, as does the statue of founder Ira Allen, Ethan's brother.
