Doors of Academia UVM

The University of Vermont, founded in 1791, is one of the oldest universities in the United States. I had the pleasure of walking around this campus on a gloriously warm June day.

I learned that John Dewey, of the ” …education is not preparation for life.  Education is life…” fame is counted amount their noted alumni.

Here are just some of the doors:

    I remember walking around there a few years back but oddly none of these gorgeous doors and entrance ways stood out. I guess I wasn’t as well attuned to doors as I am today.
    Great finds Janet 🙂

    I have a friend who lives in VT – and the history there is pretty amazing – and the opening bell photo is my fav – but the up view with the grill on steps is very cool – all are!

      Thanks! I was only in Burlington for a couple of days, but I must say, it left a very positive impression.

        Yes – we only drove through that area – such a nice place – and nice to see some doors from there….

    Not nerdy at all! I love libraries too. I love that arched doorway and the windows above it.

    What gorgeous buildings …. it must surely effect a student positively to be learning amongst such gracious architechture

      I agree! Must be very inspirational. And, I think, the surrounding geography must help, too.

        I’ve yet to get to Vermont – it’s tagged for September 🙂

    What a beautiful university. I love libraries so I’m interested to hear that John Dewey went there.
