Best tip for students coming for a campus visit

See the most you can on campus and in Burlington. Take advantage of the tours, but don't be afraid to see campus for yourself after the tour. It is a really friendly and welcoming community. Be sure to also check out downtown Burlington, there is plenty to do!

Favorite thing about Burlington

The summer months! It is a nice blend of awesome weather, eating outdoors, and many outdoor activities.

Best tip for students applying to Saint Michael's

Make it a point to come out and see the campus. The Saint Michael's experience is very unique in comparison to other campuses. It is good to see it live and in action. Don't be afraid to ask questions and learn as much about the campus and student life as possible.

What do you enjoy most about being an admission counselor?

I enjoy meeting new families, and being able to assist potential students to achieve a college degree. Education has always been important in my family, and I have taken that with me into my professional life.

Testimonial

Saint Michael's is an excellent campus for students from all walks of life. It is unique in the fact that the class sizes are tailored to small groups, and that it is a 100% residential college. The education and skills that you learn at Saint Michael's College will help you become a more well rounded person, with a great education! There are many things to do around campus, and it is always a good idea to get involved in as much as possible, without feeling overwhelmed.
