Virtual Explore Champlain Open House 2023

Sorry you missed it! Our most recent Virtual Open House was on March 8. Please check back for details on future events and feel free to read on to see what you can expect.

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

You'll quickly learn that Champlain is a special place. Not just because we're located in one of the most beautiful college towns in the country, 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.

Designed for students who are just getting to know Champlain, you'll learn 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 of campus led by one of our Student Ambassadors.


Thank you! I felt the presentation was very thorough, creative, and I really appreciated that so many current students were involved.

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 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;
  • residence halls you can really call home (because they are actually houses—Victorian-era mansions, to be specific).
