A strong start is an important part of your college experience, and our Orientation program is designed to give you just that. Interested in meeting new friends, touring the campus, and learning about the services and opportunities that Champlain offers? Then Orientation is for you!
Each of our orientations has been designed to accommodate the needs of its participants. Whether you are spending time in the Vermont outdoors with a small group of your peers during one of our Summer Launch programs, cruising on Lake Champlain with your class during August Orientation, or simply learning the icy ropes during January Orientation, you are sure to begin establishing your place at good old Camp Champ!
"Coming into college, I was as nervous as they come. Orientation showed me that the rest of my class was in the same boat I was, and that there were plenty of people around to help me. Now, I have been part of the Orientation Leader team three times, and have been able to help out numerous incoming students see the same things I did during that weekend. I found a home at Champlain, and I am confident that with the right resources, each incoming student can do the same — it's a great thing to see happen!"
