personally, i did less skiing here than ever in high school , picked up a lot of bad habits but it can be amazing a lot of days in the spring and fall, lake champlain has beautiful sunsets all the time, police are super gay here fuck them all , dorms are really ghetto minus a couple new ones, everything is overpriced, both on and off campus food options get very old after a while, theres defintely lots of whack kids but plenty of real chill ones too, too many kids who like just discovered smoking weed and try way too hard to be groovyy UV stonersz, some real sick handrails but bust factor is usually high , overall burlington is a pretty ill town as far as small east coast goes . but i dont know if i would wana stay here for 4 years to be honest. there are so many way sicker places to live/go to school in the united states if you have the means.but i think the size is nice cause its small enough where you pretty much are always running into someone you know but not small like st mikes which i've heard is a pretty terrible/beat choice to make for a college experience.it seems like the kids i know who go there are... kinda special.
but anyways, the thing that pisses me off the most is parking. i dont even want to get started on parking and driving around here. I have gone through so much shit in the last year its unreal. The roads and the way things are layed out is straight up retarded. Like some of hte intersections with multiple lights within 10 feet of each oth and do not enters, 10 stop signs in a row when there could be 2, pointless one ways and arrows pointing 'straight only' when if you actually go 'straight only' you would crash straight into on coming traffic... . I have lived nearly right in metropolitan boston for the last 17 years and NEVER have i seen parking patrols, gotten into accidents, or dealt with parking enforecement like this
what needs to happen is a boulder CO style jibpark open 24/7 . so many kids ski or snowboard it just makes sense... i feel like the town could easily raise money for that
overal as far as the east coast goes, i wouldn't wana go anywhere else
