3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: We're alright I guess. Nothing too special. A wide range of people in the looks department. But when it comes to interests/dress/social life, most people are either the trendy hipsters, gamers, or more sporty despite the lack of sports. There isn't much in between.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The boys and girls are both very nice and open to meeting new people. Many relationships are formed and they seem to be good relationships.

3 College Sophomore

3 College Junior

Champlain College's male-to-female ratio is about 60/40. Having a male-dominant campus somewhat affects the dating scene, but common interests in studies and clubs are so strong that people get really close at Champlain. Also, people get very close within the residence halls in their first year, developing friendships and sometimes more, that last throughout college and beyond. 

The more involved you are on campus, the better. When people see you, you're more likely to attract others. People relate to each other with common interests, including: playing video games, the same intramural sports, working out at the wellness center, skiing and snowboarding during the winter months, being in the same club, or being in the same major or elective classes. There is a good balance between people being reserved and being promiscuous at Champlain. Champlain is far from a school practicing abstinence, but it's not full of rabbits, either. Often, Champlainers don't let relationships interfere with their professional studies. Champlain students are very career-driven and like to have good, clean fun in the meantime rather than being tied down.

Social Scene
Champlain is a very diverse place in terms of the social scene. Many students bond over skiing and snowboarding, but by no means do you have to know how. Other students bond over "extracurricular activities." For the most part, for having such a small school, student activity planners help promote a healthy social life on campus, where students can get involved in many interests and meet new friends. There is always something to do, and despite different interests, just about everyone gets along.
Hookups or Relationships?
Hookups versus relationships are like a 50/50 split at Champlain. As long as people communicate going into a potential relationship, you won't get used. It is college, after all, so people are experimenting with both relationships and hookups, just like at any other school. One common thing at Champlain is "dormsest." Since the residence halls house about 40 or fewer students, everyone who lives in close quarters with each other gets to know each other really well, and people develop feelings for others. Many date or casually hook up because of this.
Dress Code
Champlain College is in Burlington, Vt. (e.g. it's cold seven out of the nine months school is in session). Vermonters tend to wear what's comfortable, rather than what is in style. Everyone has their own style and likes to express themselves freely at Champlain. There is no true dress code, but everyone should have more than one professional/business casual/semi-formal outfit for networking events, internships, and student life dances. Otherwise, it's free game.
