ICYMI: Fall Semester Highlights from Campus

The semester is coming to a close and students are busy prepping for finals (bet that’s something you don’t miss!) So we put together an update on what’s been happening on campus this fall.

Move Mountains: The Campaign for the University of Vermont

  • In October UVM kicked off a $500 million fundraising campaign called Move Mountains: The Campaign for The University of Vermont. Over Homecoming weekend there was a big launch on campus that included some pretty cool videos. The first is drone footage of campus and the second is a reading by Major Jackson.
