Day Three:  A contrast of Burlington experiences.

University of Vermont and St. Michael's College

Students took the opportunity of the first glimpse of sunshine to tour and explore a Land Grant, Flagship University of 10,000 Undergraduate Students in Northern Vermont, and follow up that experience with a trip to a small, Catholic Liberal Arts College just down the road.  Both institutions feature amazing winter opportunities, the assets of a beautiful and interesting host metropolitan region, and an amazing lake as a backyard.

After a few days in the rain, the students were literally climbing the walls with energy.

There is nothing like a tour with an energetic tour-guide.  Thank you Debbie.
The St. Michael's tour was beautiful AND informative.
Naturally, the Purple Knight reminded Groton students of their own Purple Knight, Mr. Millikin.
After heading south, dinner at a local restaurant in Middlebury resulted in a discovery of local Groton hero, Mr. Westman.
Dinner on the waterfront of Otter Creek?  Yes, please.  And you cannot really go wrong with nachos, no matter where you go.
