We invite all new students to attend our Champlain College Orientation Program. During our Orientation program, new students will meet their academic program faculty and advisors, learn about important services and opportunities available throughout the academic year, and begin to make new and lasting friendships.

Our program starts at 8 a.m. on the Friday when residence halls open. Students and families will have time throughout the morning to move into their residence hall assisted by Resident Assistants (RA's) and student move-in crews.

After moving in, students and families should head to the residence halls for formal check-in. At check-in students and families receive their full Orientation schedules and meet their peer advisors. Families and friends are encouraged to stay and participate in the day's events until mid-afternoon on Friday. With the departure of family and friends at mid-afternoon, the official student portion of the orientation program begins.

In the past, our program has received rave reviews. This year our orientation leaders are again planning an exciting, fun-filled, and informative weekend.

We look forward to seeing you at Orientation! If you have questions about Orientation, please contact Lisa Mazzariello at
