Student Stories

Every student searches for a college that will make the future they always dreamed of become a reality. Many of our students have stood where you are today—looking ahead at their next steps and imagining what they will do to change the world.

From creating video games and writing magazines, to working on projects to end human trafficking and becoming teachers, Champlain students pursue their dreams and make a real difference in their community. Follow a few of our students as they take you on their journeys and share the successes they found along the way. 

Everyone uses technology somehow. The information technology field is not going to go away, and it’s never going to stop growing. I love that I’ll get to be a part of it.

My goal is to leave a positive impact on the lives of future doctors, lawyers, engineers, and future teachers.

Dy’mon Guthrie, ’21 // Early Childhood/Elementary Education

DJ Miller, ’22 // Marketing

I’m thankful for all the opportunities that Champlain has given me to succeed and be the best I can be.
