Art & Design Portfolio Summer Course

Behavioral Guidelines for Students


We are all here to learn, with a limited amount of time in which to absorb as much as possible. To get the most out of your experience, please be respectful of your classmates and your instructors during class time. Electronic devices should be turned off during classes, field trips and presentations, unless approved by an instructor to use them. When using the computers, please refrain from personal emailing, instant messaging, Facebook use, game playing, etc. Open Studio time is to be used to work on group projects; use this time wisely to accomplish what you need to get done.

If you have questions, please be sure to ask an instructor, teacher assistant and/or resident advisor.


Unless otherwise noted by an instructor, the use of personal media devices such as tablets, cell phones, personal audio and hand-held game devices during class time is restricted to emergency usage. It is acceptable to use these devices during the following times:

  • Wake-up and breakfast
  • Lunch
  • During breaks
  • During field trip travel time
  • Evening free times
  • Other times as designated by the program director or class instructors


It is required that students move about campus in groups of no less than two people. No student is allowed to leave campus unless accompanied by a faculty or staff member.


There is no co-ed visitation allowed in dorm rooms. Lounges and common areas are available for socializing. You are expected to be in your room by 10:00 PM each night. A student head count will take place at 11:00 PM and you must be in your room getting ready for bed. Lights should be turned out at 11:00 PM.


There will be absolutely no use, possession, storage or attempt to purchase alcohol, cigarettes or illegal substances. Weapons of any kind (including small knives) are prohibited on Champlain College owned property. Students found with such materials will be removed from the program and may be subject to criminal charges.
