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.
Central Campus with Jillian J. Jacobs hall accomodates study halls for the Colleges of Agriculture as well as Business Administration. Admissions also has its offices in the original buildings from 1791, which have been renovated though.
Blonde Theatre is an outdoor theatre and an exclusive feature of the campus. For the winter plays, people from all over the state flock to the Blonde theatre. Of course, warm clothes are a life saver, because it's... um... Vermont
