    I worked at University of Vermont full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Absolutely gorgeous location and a lively undergraduate student body. The people are very pleasant and the campus is located downtown.

    Cons

    Very isolating from the international community and not a huge depth of expertise on campus in particular fields. If you want to study agriculture, then UVM has a lot of advantages but other than that it wasn't up my alley.
