We often hear students and families say they knew from the moment that they stepped foot on campus that Champlain was it—they were #ChampBound.

Our campus, like our community, is as welcoming as it is unique.  When you visit, you’ll notice how our distinctive Victorian-era buildings—thoughtfully cared for and restored through the years—stand side-by-side with new, cutting-edge facilities. Honoring our campus’ tradition, while moving us leaps and bounds into the future, our home on the hilltop is a reflection of our approach to education.

When I did a campus visit, I really loved Burlington being alongside Lake Champlain and it felt like the perfect environment for me to thrive in since I like the outdoors.
