Incoming first-year and transfer students have a lot to look forward to during their first year at Champlain College.
Starting your journey at a new college will naturally initiate a lot of questions. What will the first two semesters look like? Will I know what to do and where to go? How will I make friends? Am I ready for my classwork?
During your first year at Champlain, we have programs, classes, and experiences designed to set you up for success. They will help you become familiar with campus support systems, equip you with tips for managing your wellbeing during this life transition, and help you learn how to confidently take on new challenges in your professional and personal worlds. Sounds pretty beneficial, right?
What is the New Student Experience?
New Student Experience is a holistic approach to your first year of education at Champlain: Orientation, Core, and InSight—which includes our Champ 101 program. Taken together, they provide the skills and knowledge you need to succeed as a Champlain College student. Transfer students also benefit from our Transfer Connections program.
