I thought it would be a fabulous idea to share today's yahoo news with everyone. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Burlington, Vermont is the healthiest city in America! Here's the link to the story. ::EDIT:: PErez Hilton also informed the celeb gossip readers about B-Town's success! http://perezhilton.com/2008-11-17-burlington-vt-is-the-usas-healthiest-city
So if everything that the SMC campus has to offer hasn't convinced you just yet, we now have the added benefits of being so close to Burlington. In fact, it makes sense that the area is so healthy. The air is fresh, food is as organic as possible, vegetarians are plentiful, and everyone is super active. People ride bikes instead of driving, and come winter, skiing and riding are the top activities. I know I've already mentioned how great Burlington is in terms of what it offers students, so this is just an added bonus.
Personally, the fresh air is my favorite part of Vermont. It may be freezing some days, but even then the air is fresh, and seems even more so when you have a clear view straight to the mountains. I love getting out of the car after driving or flying back to campus and taking a great big breath. So I don't know if that's what you're looking for in a school, but if it is then I'd venture to say SMC is the place for you.
So, from the city next to the healthiest city in America, see you later
