Welcome to the Class of 2023! We’re so glad you’re here.
An exciting buzz was in the air as cars pulled up to South Willard Street in late August for Move-In Day. It was the start of something new for more than 600 students, and the Champlain community was here to welcome them with open arms. Seriously. As soon as a parent opened up their car’s trunk, staff and upper-year students’ arms were outstretched, waiting for what they could help bring inside to each student’s new home.
What followed was a whirlwind of setting up residence hall rooms, lunch with new friends, family goodbyes, and events on events so our new Champlainers could learn the ins and outs of campus.
A Well-Rounded Education
To help acquaint students to campus, different offices and departments hosted talks about important topics such as safety, diversity and inclusion, sexual abuse, alcohol and substance abuse, and more.
Fun and Games
The hard-hitting topics were offset with fun and games, both on and off campus throughout the weekend. Students got a chance to explore the local Burlington community, too.
Thank you to everyone who helped welcome the Class of 2023 to campus. What an exciting year we have ahead!
