Champlain College is a four-year private school with a beautiful campus in the heart of Burlington, Vermont, overlooking Lake Champlain and the Adirondack mountains. Champlain offers career-focused undergraduate degrees in 33 fields of study. Its Upside-Down Curriculum allows students to gain in-depth experience in their fields starting in their first semester, and its emphasis on experiential learning translates to significant internship and global opportunities, including at Champlain’s satellite campuses in Dublin, Ireland, and Montreal, Canada.

Off campus, the college’s Vermont location provides easy access to outdoor adventure.

Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
+ amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
+ amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

Good small school, for anyone who loves a class not more than 24 students. Great reputation and still growing, and above all good school especially for business majors. I would recommend anyone to come and check out Champlain College in VT.

Despite living 1,000 miles I way, I feel that Champlain is the best option for me as a prospective Game Design student. This is highlighted by their focus on your major and the studying abroad possibilities in Montreal. Also, after visiting, I truly like the feel of the campus.
