Great place to enjoy the greenscapes of Vermont. Lovely place for a walk in any season. Architecture is New England classic. Wouldn't miss it if I were in Bennington.

We had the best college tour guide, Matt. He helped us navigate our way around and answered our questions so articulately and had a sense of humor. Beautiful campus and unique curriculum.

We drove through the bucolic campus of this college which has an architecturally diverse collection of buildings. The grounds would be nice to walk around as well.

Amazing view, great people and a very special school. I enjoyed every minute of my stay here! The room I stayed at is very modern, you will love the apples coming straight from the tree.

We like to wander around and take photos for much of our trip, and this beautiful campus was great for that. Many interesting buildings and some great views.

My daughter just graduated so I feel like I can speak with some authority. This is a very liberal school, about a quarter LBGT, the rest perhaps a mix of artists, serious scholars and misfits. Very good reputation, very nurturing, very safe, not cheap. If...More
