Welcome, Welcome!

Today's the day! You'll start your morning with a warm welcome from current students, Admissions staff members, and influential members of the Champlain community. From there, they'll set you and your family on your way to the next stop on your fun-filled day!

Meet Classmates and Current Students

One of the BEST parts of Admitted Student Days is the opportunity to meet fellow admitted students, and maybe even find your future roommate! During your academic presentation,  you'll be able to meet other students in your major. Certain majors will participate in an interactive activity as well, giving you the chance to collaborate with people who have similar interests as you.

Plus, there will be plenty of Student Leaders on hand to answer any questions about what it's really like to be a student at Champlain.

Campus and Res Hall Tour

See all the different places you'll call home! Take a tour of our beautiful hillside campus and explore our academic buildings, library, and more-including our dining hall and its out-of-this-world view! We'll also have a special residence hall tour available to give you a closer look at the Victorian-era mansions where first-year students live (every room is unique and different!), as well as our contemporary housing for upper-year students.

Get to Know Student Life

How can you get involved on campus? Where will you hang out, make friends, and even make a difference? Our Information Fair will be packed with all the amazing people who will help you answer those questions and make you feel at home here. Chat with representatives from Housing & Residential Life, Office of Diversity & Inclusion, Women's & Gender Center, Academic Support and Tutoring, Accommodations, Counseling Center, and more. You'll also be able to drop in to campus spaces like our Leahy Center for Digital Forensics & Cybersecurity, and others. And don't forget to check out our new, state-of-the-art Esports arena, too!
