Best tip for students coming for a campus visit
Go for the full experience. While on campus, stop a St. Mike's student to ask them why they chose St. Mike's. Check out downtown Burlington, especially Church Street with its amazing shops, restaurants and street performers; the waterfront and the beautiful 'outdoors' that surround the campus. The whole package is unparalleled.
Favorite thing about Burlington
There is so much to love about Burlington. There is no wonder it tops many magazine and websites "Best of…" lists. But the thing that tops my list is the food scene. There are so many amazing local restaurants in and around Burlington that you can't go wrong.
What do you enjoy most about being an admission counselor?
I enjoy connecting with prospective students and their families in the college search process. What is especially enjoyable is introducing them to St. Mike's, which is more than just a collection of buildings in a beautiful setting. It's a unique, welcoming community where a student can receive a first class education.
Best tip for students applying to Saint Michael's
Definitely take the time to visit our campus. You will experience what exactly sets us apart from other schools. If you can't visit (or you'd just like to get to know us better), check out our YouTube channel, Facebook page or Student Blogs.
One of my neighbors is in our psychology department and, when he learned that I worked in the Office of Admission, he asked if we screened for "kindness" as part of our criteria for admission. He continued to say that he had never experienced a kinder group of students
Don't get me wrong, St. Mike's students are not perfect, but there is something about our community, as well as the clean Vermont air, that brings the best out in people - students, faculty and staff. Come visit and see for yourself.
