What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

First off, ask yourself what you like to do... what areas in high school did you excell in? And what areas were stimulating? Remember you are going to be stuck with this degree in whatever you choose, so make is something that is interesting to you... that means it doesn't necessarily mean that you have to choose something your parents want you to do. Next... find a place where you see yourself in 5 years. Where do you want to live? Some questions you might want to ask yourself are : Do you like sand or snow? Rain or sun? Lots of stars or moon? You have to figure it out. Find people you want to be like and surround yourself with them. Take in what they are doing and think about why they are sucessful. And then do it your way.

What's unique about your campus?

It is a very friendly place to be. Every one is always smiling and saying hi to one another. It is very refreshing. I think the best thing about our school would be the fact that we, at Champlain, get better job placement than UVM students.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Any one who is close minded shouldn't attend this school. Anyone who enjoys participating in varsity sports shouldn't come to Champlain either.

Pick what makes you happy. If you don't like where you go, well, thats a really bad start.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure that your children know exactly what they want to do with their lives before they consider attending any school. Depending on which major they want to pursue, they should visit the school and make sure that the school has the right class size, resources, and environment for them. They should get involved in as many activities as they can to make friends and become socially active. They should also make sure they will get enough financial aid that they need.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wants to be pre-med and someone who is against drug use.

Some advice that I would give to parents and/or students in finding the right college is to make sure you do all your research. I did not realize how important of a decision choosing a college is. I wish I had looked more into the school. You should research what kinds of classes you will be required to take, how big your class sizes will be, what the workload is like. If possible I would also recommend talking to a student that currently attends that college. Hopefully they will give you their honest opinion about what their experience has been like. Some advice for making the most out of your college experience would be to speak up and talk to new people. Don't just make friends with people in your dorms, expand your social networking to people in your classes. Also, join a group on campus! It will give you an even greater opportunity to meet new people! It's also very important to be responsible and make sure you leave time to do homework. Find a good balance between your social life and homework.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The "core" classes that they created starting with my incoming class. They are a mixture of history/psycological/art/lit. classes. The workload in them is very heavy and I feel I am not learning much.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Find someone who is not a tour guide (not paid by the college to give you information about the college) and talk to them. You'll find out a heck of a lot more from them than any tour guide will provide. (They are SUPPOSED to make you want to go to school there...)

What's unique about your campus?

The computer helpdesk because that's where I work and I've made a lot of friends because of it.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

College is an important and exciting time in a persons life. It is important to consider the size of the school that will best fit the persons learning style. I have ADHD so the small school in which I attened was the perfect fit for me. It is also very important to visit the school , talk to some exsiting students, and get a real feel for what the school is about. College is a time for learning and matureing into adult as well as a time to have fun. You must choose a school that you think would allow you to do both of those things. Many parents are afraid of sending there kids far away to go to college. My advice would be to leave it up to your kids. It is important to give them a chance to learn and grow on their own. To spread there wings and see what happends. This is a time when people grow the most and they need to grow into the people they want to be not the people there parents want them to be.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is that there are no sports teams only intermurals

Do research online to narrow down choices but making several visits to favorite schools is important. Talk to students and faculty to get details on the school .

Describe the students at your school.

What makes Champlain so great is that I'm unable to describe my classmates in one sentence because the school's small class sizes has allowed me to get to know each and every one of my class mates on a very personal level.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Coming from a very close family, attending an out of state college was a very difficult decision for me to make. If I could make one suggestion to parents, I would say please, let them go! Going away to school has been such a positive experience for me and I have matured a great deal because of it. I still talk to my parents and grandparents every day - You won't lose that closeness - They will always be your baby boy or girl, no matter how many miles seperate you. To students, my only advice is to receive your parents' blessings and go away to a school that will give you the tools necessary to begin your life doing something you love. Make the most out of the opportunities provided for you.
