More Event Info
Starting with a reception on Friday night, you'll meet with other families and hear our faculty and staff speak about the developments in our Champlain classrooms and beyond. The opening reception is always an exciting kickoff to a great weekend. Saturday leads off with a family breakfast and an address from Interim President Laurie Quinn. In the afternoon, you'll join the entire community of students and Student and Residential Life staff for the Family Weekend & Spirit Week Carnival! It's always super fun and an epic photo op. But wait! There's more: Enjoy an Improv Show performed by students at The Grind open mic coffee house event, and take an easy (paved, even) hike up Mt. Philo, with its spectacular views of this glorious state your student calls home. Plus, you'll have plenty of time to explore Burlington's downtown, the waterfront, art galleries, the farmers' market, shops, restaurants, and more.
