Tour Campus

The Champlain campus is one of a kind. Come see for yourself: Tour one of our Victorian-era mansion residence halls and take an iconic pic from our library balcony overlooking the mountains, Lake Champlain, and the jaw-dropping fall foliage. (The view from our dining hall is another must-see.)

Discover our Upside-Down Curriculum

Our unique learning approach allows students to gain more in-depth experience in their field than they would at nearly any other institution. We have a passion for hands-on, experiential learning, and we make it happen from Day 1.

Plus, explore our Centers of Experience, including the Emergent Media Center and the Leahy Center for Digital Forensics & Cybersecurity!

Dive into our career-focused majors, which engage students from their first semester and prepare them for successful careers in their fields. Score multiple internships and land a job that suits your interests. Over the last six years, 93% of graduates were employed or are continuing their education within six months after graduating.

Schedule an Interview or Portfolio Review Session

High school seniors are invited to sign up for an admissions interview during Fall Open House, as well as a portfolio review session for those applying to majors with a Portfolio Review Requirement (Creative Media, Filmmaking, Game Art, Game Design, and Graphic Design & Visual Communication). Space is limited, and requests will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

I decided to come to Champlain because of its small community. When I came here for a tour, I automatically felt a connection from everyone, being so close with each other and being so friendly.
