VERMONT UNIVERSITY

Vermont University (VTU) is located in the University Heights neighbourhood of Sterling. It was chartered in 1791 as an agricultural college. It is now a public university, funded both by the State of Vermont and the City of Sterling. The original structures are still standing and today form Central Campus. To this day, VTU is still known for its agricultural research, but also established other strong branches.
