Message from the Office of the President

SVC David Rees EvansWelcome to Southern Vermont College! At SVC, we believe passionately in the potential of our students to do great things, and everyone on campus is dedicated to providing support and creating opportunities for students to thrive. Our academic programs rest on a traditional liberal arts foundation to encourage students to develop as thinkers, communicators, and effective, ethical citizens–personally and professionally.

Our spectacular campus, originally the historic Everett estate on the slopes of Mt. Anthony overlooking the Town of Bennington, provides a comfortable, welcoming place for academic pursuits and a lively social life. Our students are active members of the Bennington community, pursuing internship and work opportunities and forming a vibrant part of the local economy. Our athletic programs are enjoying strong success, fostering school spirit, and bringing enthusiastic crowds to campus for games.

I invite you to visit any time and see what’s so special about SVC. It is an amazing place, animated by a mission to help students find their passions and build engaged, successful lives.

–David Rees Evans
