Campus Dining: The dining hall reels you in by having amazing food the first few weeks of semester, just long enough for you to tell your parents how good it is. Then, the meals begin to become repetitive and bland. The hours are horrible, there are days that I can only get one meal in because of my schedule. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly though. You can tell that they're really committed to their job. They try to make the food as best as they can but I don't think they have a large enough budget. There's a rumor that they're building a new dining hall so that would help with the crowding and hopefully will bring new choices.

Drug Safety: Champlain is a dry campus. That means even if you're 21 and don't attend Champlain, you're not allowed to have alcohol on Champlain property. Of course, this doesn't stop us. Champlain strictly enforces their drug policy, which from my experience only worsens the matter. I can't count how many times people didn't want to call public safety when they had alcohol poisoning because they didn't want their friends to get in trouble. We have this policy where public safety is not suppose to get you or accomplices in trouble for alerting them about an emergency, but public safety doesn't like to follow this policy. It's relatively easy to get away with consuming drugs though if you're smart about it.

Health & Safety: I don't know much, but I feel they do their job.

2 College Freshman

Parking: The cost to park on campus (with a parking pass) is too much. It also is hard to find a fair spot at a reasonable distance from classes.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are tons of people of all varieties, and everyone is accepted. I feel like there are many minorities here at Champlain.

1 College Freshman

Weather: Classes never get canceled, even with a foot of snow.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I prefer living off of campus, but from what I see from visiting dorms they are nice.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Free bussing in Burlington is amazing. I love it. Campus shuttles suck.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Since I don't live on campus, I follow all the rules with no problem. It works for me.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I have to buy a meal plan, but its so worth it. Its decent food, that you can get a wide variety of. Also, you can eat as much as you want. It's nice.

2 College Freshman

Computers: I don't like that we have to bring our own laptops in. Some classes it's even necessary in.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: The parties are great when the weather is nice, there are none with the snow. Bars are far too expensive, taxis too. Underage nightlife is the same as of age night life, but it's nice to not drink all the time.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is a lot of pot smoking, but not much of anything else. At least you don't feel pressured to smoke, because nobody wants to share.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I love living off campus. I wouldn't have it any other way.

5 College Freshman

Academics: I love Champlain. The teachers are very interesting, I'm learning interesting stuff, and it was easy to get into for me, being an older student.

College Freshman

Majors: I haven't had an internship just yet.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I love my major! Every teacher and student is so awesome!

Athletics: UVM is much better with sports than Champlain. We are more of a student group kind of school.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Only know 1 person, seem a little stuck up.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Not done, but should work out fine. Not sure I will receive much.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: There are so many different unique and fun spots to hang or study around campus.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: When you walk away from this school you will know that you have a leg up compared to other schools. They treat you like an adult and want you to be prepared for the future but they also provide you with the social aspect.

The incredible feeling most students get the first time they walk through Champlain College's campus never leaves. The campus is absolutely beautiful—you always get to see familiar faces as well as meet new people, have unique leadership opportunities, and take classes that are interesting to you from the day you start. The small class sizes (25 students or less) help students form strong relationships with each other and their professors. Class discussions and hands-on projects are more common than tests. Everyone at Champlain is here to help you succeed, find your interests, practice your skills, and get a job relevant to your major after graduation. The Upside-Down Curriculum is not a scam—it's real. You can come to Champlain as a general business major and switch to marketing your sophomore year, after learning exactly what you want to do because your classes are already teaching you that.

Students at Champlain are valued in the greater-Burlington community because they have the skills employers are looking for. Students are unique because they're career-oriented, while still having a great core program that combines all of their general studies (history, literature, psychology, philosophy, art, science) for greater focus on their major. The LEAD (Life Experience & Action Dimension) program also prepares students for life after college.
