Snow Closure

Update (12/10/14 10:30am): Champlain College is open and we are continuing to monitor the weather.

Champlain Campus Community,

I would like to inform all of you that the Emergency Response Team at Champlain is preparing for the winter storm that is arriving this afternoon and will continue into Wednesday. We are monitoring the situation closely and will be keeping students, faculty and staff updated on our Website. In the event of the College closing you will be notified through our RAVE Campus Alert System.

As we head into winter and inclement weather we wanted to update the community as to our campus closure protocol and how you all can best stay informed.
