Free Bus Trip to Burlington! Come See Champlain College!

Monday, November 11, 2019: Be On The Bus!

If you are a junior or senior in high school, we invite you to come on board for a free ride on a luxury tour bus from your area on Monday, November 11, 2019 to Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont. Most schools have the day off for Veteran's Day, so it's a great time to check out the college U.S. News & World Report has called a "Most Innovative School" for four years running!

Plus, Burlington frequently tops the charts as one of the best college towns in America and our campus is right in the heart of town. If you have not checked it out yet, this is your chance!


We've taken care of all the details—free round-trip transportation, lunch overlooking the lake, campus tours, talks and information sessions, and much more. All you need to do is reserve your space and bring a permission slip signed by your parent/guardian (bus ride is strictly for students—sorry, families).

You will learn about Champlain's individualized education, our academic excellence, our career-focused majors, extensive internship opportunities, Upside-Down Curriculum, and other ways a Champlain College education prepares you to thrive in our fast-paced world.


Have a friend who is a junior or senior in high school and looking at colleges? We'd love for you to invite them to the Bus Trip. If your friend registers (see specific pickup locations below) and attends the event (with signed permission slip), you'll both get a cozy Champlain College sweatshirt when you get here for the event.

Make a great day even better by bringing a friend. When you register, you'll see the place on the form to give their name and email address.  We'll send them an email invite, and they can register on our special Refer-a-Friend  registration page. If you don't provide your friend's email address, we will be unable to invite them. Please make sure you ask your friend if it's ok for you to give us your email address!  Limit one sweatshirt per student.

Pass the word around your school; it will be a blast!


Thanks to our  Champlain Visit Scholarship, if you come for the day, you can get $4,000 applied toward your tuition ($1,000 per year every year you are at Champlain as long as you are enrolled full time!). Plus, if you follow RaiseMe, you can get an additional microscholarship just for coming on our Bus Trip!
