UVM vs. UNH?

These are my two favorite safeties (these along with Maryland were my 3 safeties) and I am having trouble deciding which is best. If there are any current UNH/UVM students out there, I would love your input!

Strong engineering/science program--do you feel that UNH/UVM has this?
Sizable surrounding city environment (so I can escape campus :P)
General campus niceties (is housing better at UNH? How's the food? How pretty is it? Et cetera)
I've been admitted to the Honors College at both schools so you can factor that in as well.

Please help. Thank you!

    UVM has a pretty strong engineering program, especially when it comes to energy and sustainability.

    Burlington's a great little city, with plenty of places to eat & have fun. The campus is also pretty nice looking, with the Lake Champlain waterfront very close.

    Of course, I'm biased (see my location) but I think UVM is definitely superior!

    I think B-town and the lake give UVM a bit more to offer in that area.
