Answer: not much.
During winter break, prospective students love the excuse to throw their skis or their boards on top of the car and take a quick road trip to Vermont to enjoy the best ski and ride terrain in the northeast. Oh, and while they are at it, they take some time to check out the wonderful colleges in the Burlington, Vermont, area.
In fact, we had so many students coming to visit campus during their winter break from school, we decided to create a special Winter Open House Event. It’s become a wonderful, exciting annual event. We’d love you to join us for it.
Our Open Houses are the best way to get the Champlain experience. Start your day off by meeting Don Laackman, the President of the College. Let him tell you about the unique education Champlain has to offer—a combination of our Upside-Down curriculum for your career-focused major/minors and specializations, the liberal arts courses in the Core curriculum, and the lifelong career management and financial sophistication workshops provided by the Office of Life Experience & Action Dimension (LEAD).
Spend the rest of your day exploring our campus and get one of the best views of the lake in Burlington from the top of our library, the Miller Information Commons. 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.
