1. Some of the big things that make Bennington different from other schools are the Plan Process, FWT, and it’s super duper community.
2. People do a pretty huge variety of things for fun, and most of them are the same kinds of things people would do for fun anywhere. Some of the things I do include playing music, watching tv shows, hiking, mtn biking, playing dodgeball, playing apples to apples, reading, you get the idea. Fun stuff.
3. What we’re mostly into is probably a pretty similar list to what we mostly do for fun, but this might be a good time to mention that just about everyone here is pretty into their work (I know it sounds a little nerdy, but I promise it’s true). Beyond the obvious flannel shirts and underground punk, most people here are really into what they study and want to talk about it, and then they’re into normal stuff like Buffy the Vampire slayer, and cooking, and swimming, etc.
4. VT’s the best (somerestrictionsapplyvoidwhereprohibited). It helps if you don’t mind driving a pretty long way to large cities, and if you like mountains, winter, and mud season, but it’s a gorgeous place to be year round with some cool places and history.
