How come we don't consider the contribution of vibrational energy when calculating the molar internal energy (Um)?

We usually don't consider vibrational energy because most molecules don't vibrate under standard conditions.

What is the equipartition theorem by the way?

Do we have to know this theorem for the midterm? I do not think Dr. Lavelle discussed it in very much detail in lecture.
