Well, no matter how many different types of individuals you meet at University of Vermont, and no matter at which college, each and every one will probably fit into at least one category. Read on to find out about the 10 people you’ll always run into at Groovy UV!

1. The Flower Loving, Tree Hugging Hippie

It’s no secret that UVM is most known for their hippie students. But the word hippie can mean so many different things, all ranging from connecting with and loving mother nature to being free spirited and musically surrounded. Having one of the most beautiful college campuses in the country, it’s no wonder why every other student you meet is a hippie.


2. The “Hard Core” Liberal

Being in the state of Vermont where Bernie Sanders is the state senator, UVM is obviously a very liberal school. Most likely everyone you meet will be against Trump and for Hillary or Bernie.

3. The Stoner

UVM is known as the green college, and that can mean two things. It’s either very environmentally friendly, or there are a lot of stoners. Fortunately, green is used to describe their love for the environment. However, there are still quite a few students who do smoke, and there is no doubt that you won’t be able to avoid them.





4. The Skier & Snowboarder

Vermont is popular for their mountains, especially for skiers and snowboarders. Many people who don’t go to UVM automatically think that all UVM students ever do in their free time is go skiing or snowboarding. Although not every student does, there is still a pretty large group.

5. The Student Athlete

Believe it or not, these people are actually different from the mentioned skiers and snowboarders! UVM is a Division 1 school, so it should be expected that there will be a significant amount of student athletes. Because many of them may be on sport scholarships, their entire college life revolves around their academics and their sport, with no free time to chill.



6. The Greek

This person is all about Greek life, whether it be fraternities or sororities, they are all for it. Although only 10% of the entire campus population is a part of Greek life, there is no way you would be able to miss them. They are always spreading the messages of their sorority or fraternity across campus. 


7. The Preppy

The majority of UVM students come from wealthier, upper middle class families. These people will be most likely seen wearing Vineyard Vines, Patagonia, L.L. Bean, The North Face… you name it, they’ve got it.

8. The Freelancer

A quite popular category for UVM students to fall under, this person does not give a crap about what others think of them and do as they please.


9. The Outdoorsman

Being in the green mountains, or the viridis montis, there are definitely going to be people who are all about mother nature and exploring. This person will either be living in sustainability or outdoor experience. Basically, they enjoy hiking.


10. The Catamount

Basically anyone who goes to UVM. Haha. Go Catamounts!
