Campus Life

At Champlain, we want you to experience all aspects of college life, not just what you learn inside the classroom. From rugby and rock climbing to the lasting friendships you will make your first night in your close-knit residence halls, Champlain makes it easy for you to find your niche in a community where something is always happening.

Your New Student Experience

We believe it's important for students to develop a strong sense of belonging to ease the transition to a new college environment. That's why we created the New Student Experience-a holistic approach to your first year at Champlain. Taken together, Orientation, Champ 101, Core, and InSight provide the skills and knowledge you need to succeed and navigate life as a Champlain College student.
