BURLINGTON AND THE UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT
The University of Vermont has a beautifully landscaped and wooded
campus located on a hill overlooking Lake Champlain. The center of
the campus is the "University Green" bequeathed by Ira Allen. There
are fountains, benches, and nearby open spaces for youthful play.
Basketball courts are also available. Burlington is one of America's
most beautiful towns. In 2000 it was rated as America's "Most Livable
City." A four season tourist attraction, it is full of interesting
eating establishments, shops, coffee houses, and entertainment
facilities. It retains a small town Vermont charm and is free from
the crime and decay which characterizes many urban areas. Summer in
Vermont is delightful, with the temperature hovering in the 80's and
almost never reaching the 90's. Humidity is low and outdoor
activities are common and comfortable.
Attendees will be housed in a UVM dormitory on the central campus,
with males and females on different floors. Experienced Resident
Assistants will supervise them. There will be a curfew for high
school students. High school and college students will be in separate
dormitories. Coaches will be housed near college students. Special
housing for families may be arranged but cannot be guaranteed.
Attendees should bring sheets, pillow case, pillow, towel. The
dormitories contain coin-operated laundry facilities, lounges, and
pay telephones. Each room has a telephone for incoming and outgoing
calls, but only local calls can be made from these telephones.
Attendees can buy a full meal contract from Marriott Services. Three
meals a day in an on-campus facility for the two week program for
$225, or for the one week program for $115. The meal service always
features vegetarian and non-red meat items. Attendees may purchase a
meal plan for use on campus by making a check payable to"Marriott
University Dining Services"and sending it with your registration.
Within easy walking distance of the campus are a large number of
eating establishments that span all price levels and offer a wide
variety of cuisine. Students will be provided with a comprehensive
list when they arrive. There are several very inexpensive lunch
options available within a 2 minute walk from where classes will be
