Activities & Events

Every weekend, there is something new to do at Champlain College: apple picking, visiting a haunted corn maze, open mic nights, stand up comedy, learning to swing dance, and much more. Our SAPs (Student Activity Programmers) plan weekly activities and the Programming Board CHAMP (Champlain Has Activities and Motivational Programming) plans large-scale events such as the annual Snowball, Spirit Week, and Spring Meltdown.

Blue Stool Project

The Blue Stool Project is a series of flash lectures given on the Champlain College campus, appearing in the central courtyard and drawing in passers-by to hear what the lecturer, drawn from the college community, has to share. The goal is to address topics that might not normally come up in the classroom, and to engage in a more "guerilla" style of teaching/learning. Learn more…
