How many Bennington students does it take to change a light bulb?

Nine. One to screw in the light bulb, and the other eight to have a light bulb theme party around the event.

It's known not only for its distinctly artsy student body and breathtakingly beautiful Vermont campus but also for the free hand that students have in planning and fulfilling their education. Taking responsibility for planning your own course of studies is not for everyone but for the select 700 students that choose to do so, it is a liberating and deeply engaging experience.
