Meet the Champlain Senior Admissions Interns

Our Senior Admissions Interns are here to help answer any questions you may have about life at Champlain College, attending college in Burlington, or about the application process. Interns work closely with the Admissions Team throughout the year by conducting interviews. Interviews are not required, but it is a great opportunity to ask questions and to tell us a bit more about yourself.

In the Office of Sustainability, there is a huge window with tons of pillows in front of it. It is, in my personal opinion, the best place to curl up with a book or do your homework - especially on snowy days.
