Come to one of America's Best College Towns-during one of the most beautiful times of year! You can't go wrong putting Burlington, Vermont, at the top of your list of cities to visit while exploring colleges.
Burlington is home to a number of great college options (there are more than 13,000 undergraduate students populating this lake-side city during the school year!) and well worth a trip to check them all out.
If you come to the Champlain Fall Open House event, you'll see that our approach to education is as remarkable as our campus. We do things differently—from the amazing architecture of our buildings (which have won awards for their advanced sustainability features), to our career-focused majors like Game Programming, Graphic Design & Digital Media, Management & Innovation and Environmental Policy.
Come learn about the unique education Champlain has to offer—a combination of our Upside-Down curriculum for your major, the liberal arts courses in the Core curriculum, and the lifelong career management and financial sophistication workshops provided by the Life Experience & Action Dimension (LEAD) program. Meet with our award-winning faculty and learn about the many hands-on opportunities that they have created for their students within the community, and make time to talk with our staff from Admissions, Financial Aid, student organizations, and Career Services. Walk through our Victorian-era mansion residence halls (unlike any you'll find anywhere else), explore the awesome Burlington waterfront district and have a great time while exploring all your college options.
Join us on Friday, October 24th for a special Fall Open House Pre-Event! Click here for details
