Virtual Explore Champlain Open House

Can't make an in-person Open House? Join us for one of our Virtual Open House events!

There are no Virtual Events planned at this time. Please Check Back for Virtual Open House Events in 2022.

You'll quickly learn that Champlain is a special place. Not just because we're located in one of the most beautiful and safe college towns, but because we're a college that dares to be different.

This fully virtual event provides you with an introduction of what it's like to live and learn at Champlain. Play a virtual trivia game to see what sets us apart (you could win a prize!), and get answers to your most pressing questions from a panel of current Champlain students.

This event is designed for students who are just learning about Champlain, and will cover the basics of who we are and what we do. If you're already familiar with us but want to learn even more, consider taking the Virtual Tour, signing up for a one-on-one meeting with an Admissions Counselor, or 

I've been to a lot of virtual open houses and this is one of the best and most engaging experiences by far.

An award-winning college

There's no doubt that our approach is one of the reasons why, year after year, we appear in the most prestigious college ranking guides. Some of our recent accolades include:

  • The Princeton Review's 2021 "The Best 385 Colleges" and 2019 "Guide to 361 Green Colleges." (In fact, we were ranked the 25th greenest college in the United States!)
  • A "Most Innovative School" in U.S. News & World Report's 2021 "America's Best Colleges" regional rankings.
  • One of the "best and most interesting schools" in the United States, Canada, and Great Britain, according to the Fiske Guide to Colleges for 2020.
  • Ranked 20th in the country for Information Technology by, and in the top 20 schools for game design by The Princeton Review.

Give perspective to your college search

When you attend our Virtual Open House, you'll begin to see the benefits of:

  • an innovative, career-focused approach to higher education (our grads consistently land jobs in their field at rates higher than national averages);
  • faculty with extensive industry experience in the subject areas in which they teach;
  • a stunningly beautiful campus (we argue it's one of the most beautiful in the country);
  • a creative, ambitious, and tight-knit community with outstanding student life activities, clubs, and trips; and
  • residence halls you can really call home (because they are actually houses—Victorian-era mansions, to be specific).
