We’re a group of UVM students who are in the know about all the cool things happening on and off campus. We love UVM, living in Burlington and spreading the word about fun stuff to do.

The /bored calendar has been around since 1996. At that time, the Student Life office heard from students that they were “bored”, even though there were lots of great things happening on campus and in Burlington. Utilizing the ‘new’ Internet, the uvm.edu/bored calendar was started. Since then technology has changed and so has the look and feel of the site. Today the calendar is visited about 100,000/year. If you have an idea for improving our program, please let us know!
