As the temperature drops, GMC students grab their winter gear and get out outside! Once again, GMC has been identified as one of the best colleges in the nation for outdoor enthusiasts. And we wholeheartedly agree! “One of the most environmentally-minded schools in the nation, Green Mountain College—whose motto is ‘First in Sustainability’—is true to its word and puts its money where its mouth is,” says the outdoor apparel company Marmot. “Case in point: it has pledged to reach complete carbon neutrality by 2020, already installing solar panels and a wind turbine on campus. Between the Adirondacks and Green Mountains (hence its name), the college is founded on earth-minded ideals, offering degrees in environmental studies, natural resource management and sustainable food systems. Its student clubs include a bike and ski shop, an equestrian club, a farm crew, an outdoor recreation alliance, a rowing crew, a skate club, an ultimate rugby group and quidditch, because why not?” GMC takes 9th place in this national ranking.
