A private, co-ed, small liberal arts college located in Poultney, Vermont. Founded as the "Troy Conference Academy" by the Methodist Church in 1834. Green Mountain College (GMC as it is nicknamed by students) has had many incarnations over it's 175 year history. From Academy, to a very exclusive preppy-women's college, back to co-ed status, and since the mid 1990's focusing on environmentalism, and related movements.
Green Mountain students tend to study art, education, psychology, complaining, and griping. Everyone complains about the food being terrible yet they line up at every meal early and proceed to push and shove to get their share.
Students tend to be earthy, left-leaning, and entitled. Alums from all generations and stripes get all "misty-eyed" over their fun times at 'ol GMC. The campus is beautiful and inspiring in all of its incarnations and moods over the decades. A "Simon and Garfunkel" song come to life.
I'd go there.
