Best tip for students coming for a campus visit

Ask as many questions as possible. Our student tour guides have an immense amount of knowledge about the campus, college life and the Burlington area. Remember, they were in your shoes just a short time ago. They can really help you see yourself at St. Mike's.

Favorite thing about Burlington

Burlington is the perfect college town. It has so many shops and restaurants; you will never run out of places to go. The view of Lake Champlain and the mountains is terrific too.

Best tip for students applying to Saint Michael's

Be sure to visit campus and talk to as many people as you can. Nothing will give you a better idea of what St. Mike's is like than meeting the students, coaches, faculty, and staff members that make up our community. 

What do you enjoy most about being an admission counselor?

As a new admission counselor, I am excited to have the opportunity to share my great experience at St. Mike's with other students who are exploring which college fits them best. Helping students discover what St. Mike's has to offer and helping them create their own remarkable college experience is a very rewarding job. 


Being from Minnesota, I admit that I was a little nervous about going to a college so far from home, but the Saint Mike's community is amazing. They truly made me a part of their family. Whether you are from near or far, the community at St. Mike's is extremely engaging, welcoming, and fun. You will quickly feel at home here.
