"At Champlain, you really do get to jump right into what you want to study from the beginning. I was declared right from the beginning, and so I started my major specific classes from the first semester — they are fun and have made me realize that I'm definitely in the right major. I love that as an education major, I've already had experiences with children in a classroom setting." — Dominique Viteretto, Early Childhood/Elementary Education Major, from Stamford, CT
To begin meeting your fellow accepted students, we highly encourage you to visit our Facebook site for accepted students. Be sure to check off that you are accepted-our administrator will make sure you get access to our page specifically created just for our accepted students! Our application will keep your profile private, giving you the chance to chat with others and learn about your shared interests without the need to add someone as a friend.
"Champlain has an amazing social networking source that all of the incoming students of the class used to get to know each other before we even met and long before school even started." — Brianne DeVincent, Computer Information Technology major from Attleboro, MA
HOW DO I REGISTER FOR THE ACCEPTED STUDENT DAY EVENT?
Another great opportunity to meet other accepted students (as well as faculty, staff, current students and alumni), is our Accepted Student Day event. This year's dates are April 6 & April 13. Come! You might meet your new best friend or a possible roommate candidate-and you'll definitely be able to pick up your first Champlain sweatshirt in the bookstore, and get your picture taken with our mascot Chauncey T. Beaver. While you are here, you can enjoy Burlington, or even hit the slopes for some sunny spring skiing/riding. To register, click here.
"I think every student who has been accepted to Champlain should try to come to an Accepted Student Day event because you get a sense of how the school suits you. You get the opportunity to meet and mingle with staff and faculty from your Division, meet classmates, get a tour, and finalize all the pesky details." — Spencer Cray, Marketing major, from Essex Junction, VT
"Champlain has something for everyone. I knew I would have tons of outdoor activities to participate in, but I didn't know I'd have the chance to go on a rafting trip, join a rock climbing club, sign up for group hikes, etc. If you love a tightly-knit environment, discussion over lecture and community/eco awareness, you are probably going to love Champlain." — Nicole Handel, Psychology major with a minor in Global Studies, from Cornwallville, NY
All first year students are housed in one of the stunning, completely restored Victorian-era mansion residence halls that ring the central campus. Everywhere you want to be is close at hand (including beautiful downtown Burlington), and each is fully loaded with all the amenities, including wireless internet access and laundry facilities.
"Living in Victorian Mansions is pretty awesome. I've been to other schools, and I would not be able to live in those cramped rooms. We all know each other in the dorm and have personal relationships with our RAs whereas you don't get that in a bigger school." — Victor Ceriello, Environmental Policy major, from Holmdel, NY
Our Dining Hall has it all-amazing views of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountain range, seven food stations every day, meals cooked to order, and much more. For information about Dining Hall hours, meal plan pricing and menus, click here. All first year residential students have a meal plan. The best way to see all the good stuff is on the Champlain College Dining Services Facebook. Visit Facebook.com/ChamplainDining.
"I love Champlain because the school is big enough that there are so many people you don't actually know, but it's small enough that you don't have large classes and you know the people you're around in your dorm and in classes. I know Champlain is the right school for me because I feel like this is the place where I can get the right education that will help me be successful in the future." — Jamie Roberts, Business Administration major, specializing in Event Management from Newburyport, MA
"I think the fact that the teachers all have experience in their fields and the hands-on activities in every class makes learning a lot easier-and also the Upside-Down Curriculum. Take advantage! Take advantage of everything you can-all the great classes and awesome clubs and activities! You're paying for a great education, so go out there and enjoy it!" —Bianca Rivera, Criminal Justice major from Paterson, NJ
"What makes Champlain unique is the beauty of the school itself, the grandeur of the dorms and the campus and the fact that all the classes can be really customized to your educational profile. I'm loving the classes that are specifically directed toward my major-I love my teachers and the work is very specifically oriented to what I'll be doing in the future." — Ryan Russell, Psychology major from Nassau, Bahamas
"All of my professors are great! They are really interested in what they teach. And all of them held jobs in the subject they're teaching, so I always feel like I'm getting reliable and useful information. They are also very approachable and encourage one-on-one conversations." — Annie Clymer, Professional Writing major from Danbury, CT
The first thing to do is to check out our FAQ for Accepted Students page. If you still have questions, feel free to contact someone in our academic or administrative offices using the links below:
"Burlington is a small city, but there's ALWAYS something to do. It's hard to explain, but there's never a dull moment at this school, and the whole social spectrum covers an extremely large range so no one ever gets left out of the loop. Also, the Core curriculum professors literally blow my mind in every class. A lot of the professors hold demonstrations and give impromptu lectures in different areas around campus too, so there's also plenty to learn, absorb and incorporate into your life even outside the classroom." — Henry Edward Quinn IV, Computer Network & Information Security, East Hampton, CT
