Living and Learning (and Eating)
The Montpelier area boasts a wide variety of restaurants, bookstores, boutique stores, theaters, sporting events, and other entertainment options within walking distance of campus. For students expanding their geographical horizons further afield, there are more opportunities for hiking, biking, fishing, frisbee golf, swimming, skiing, snowboarding, ice skating, snowshoeing, and camping than any one person has time for.
Just 35 minutes away, Burlington is a thriving college town at the edge of Lake Champlain with an even greater variety of recreational (and culinary) adventures. Burlington is home to Champlain College, University of Vermont and St. Michael's College. There’s always something going on--on the waterfront, on Church Street, and in City Hall Park. Nationally known musical acts regularly tour through the town and summer music festivals are widespread.
A further two hours north, Montreal is a gorgeous city, full of internationally renowned museums, sports venues, amazing food markets, and an annual summer-long fireworks competition held every Saturday night.
The Student Services Department provides guidance and supports students to develop positive relationships with peers, faculty, parents and families. Our goal is to support you, the student, to effectively deal with personal concerns, crises, school-related problems and home and family concerns so you can have an enriched college experience.
