The Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Attend Your College’s Admitted Student Day

So, you’ve taken a few campus tours, applied to your favorite schools, and received your college acceptance. Congratulations! What better way to celebrate than to spend some quality time getting to know your future classmates.

Here are the top five reasons to attend your college’s Admitted Student Day:

1. Ask important questions & explore to your heart’s content.

You can ask in-depth questions and explore your options with the help of Admissions staff, academic advisers, and your future professors.

You may have already toured campus extensively, but you’ll likely have new questions at this point in the process. At Admitted Student Day, you’ll be encouraged to ask more specific questions about your future college experience, and you’ll get in-depth answers from current students and professors. 

There’s always more to see when it comes to campus, too. Now that you’re admitted, you’ll be exploring the college with a whole new perspective. You’ll be able to better envision yourself living on campus and feel excited to call it home.

2. Meet future classmates—maybe even find a roommate!

You’ll make connections and meet new friends. These students got to know each other at Champlain’s 2018 Admitted Student Day.

Campus visits and open houses can help you get acquainted with a few potential friends, but Admitted Student Days offer a key advantage: everyone there is likely joining you in the fall. At these events, you can begin your college fun with friends and even find a roommate!

Don’t forget to join the Class of 2024 Facebook group to keep in touch with the people you meet! 

3. Earn scholarships!

Champlain’s Center for Communication & Creative Media is a hub of activity during Admitted Student Day. You can join in, take a break, or watch the action from the sidelines in the Commuter Lounge, pictured here.

At Champlain, we believe that there is no substitute for coming to campus and really seeing what Burlington and Champlain are all about. That’s why the Champlain Visit Scholarship was founded! By attending Admitted Student Day (or another scheduled visit), you’ll earn a $4,000 scholarship toward the cost of tuition at Champlain—$1,000 for each year you are enrolled. 

4. Have an absolute blast!

Choose your fun: giant Jenga, Ultimate frisbee, Super Smash Bros, scavenger hunts, bouncy castles—you name it and you can play it during Admitted Student Day.

Champlain’s Admitted Student Weekends bring three days of excitement and fun, beginning with a Friday Night Social. You can enjoy Student Life activities and a buffet with your future classmates while your parents mingle with faculty and staff.

The fun doesn’t end there! Sunday’s international road trip to Champlain’s Montreal campus gives you a peek at what study abroad is really like. Don’t forget your passport, phone, and camera! It’s an experience you’ll want to capture and remember forever.

5. Dive into college life.

Broadcast Media Production Professor Dr. Van Dora Williams teaches prospective students how to broadcast a live show during a sample class.

What better way to envision yourself as a student than to become one for a day? At Champlain’s Admitted Student Weekend, Saturday is all about finding your place in academic life. You’ll get to know professors in your major and try out some fun sample classes. Students in the Stiller School of Business can even take a crack at naming the next Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor. If you haven’t decided on a major, you can meet with academic advisers one-on-one to explore your options and see how your values align with various majors and career paths.

BONUS—Score some free swag!

The Champlain College Eco Reps are just one of many clubs and organizations waiting to welcome you to Admitted Student Day!

Admitted Student Days are all about the free stuff. Just for showing up, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get Champlain merch like stickers, pins, bags, posters, and more. If you submit your deposit, you’ll also become an official student and get your enrollment gift on campus. Either way, you won’t go home empty-handed. 

You’ll get to meet Chauncey, Champlain’s mascot, during Admitted Student Day, too.

Is attending an Admitted Student Day or Weekend worth it? Absolutely! Admitted Student Days are the best opportunity to get to know the place you’ll be spending the next four years, with the people who will be by your side. For many students, Admitted Student Day is the moment when it all starts to feel real. After all that in-depth exploring, you can be confident in making the most informed choice about your future. Then you can spend your summer doing the things you love—all while counting down the days until you move into your ideal college!
