Best tip for students coming for a campus visit

Remember to balance the support of your family and friends with your personal opinions. They know you well and want the best for you, but you will be the one taking classes, meeting new people, and living in a new place. Be yourself, and ask the questions you want answered so you can figure out if St. Mike's is the place for you.

Favorite thing about Burlington

The view of Lake Champlain and the mountains from the top of Main Street.

Best tip for students applying to Saint Michael's

Keep an open dialogue. Even if you don't have specific questions, there is always someone who would love to chat with you about any topic of interest. Then you'll start to think of questions. 

What do you enjoy most about being an admission counselor?

Being an admission counselor gives me the opportunity to share my love for Saint Michael's College each and every day. Working with this community and finding new families to experience the place I call home is the best job I could imagine. 

Testimonial

My favorite aspect of the Saint Michael's community is the importance of learning in a variety of ways. Not only do graduates excel academically, we learn how to learn for the rest of our lives. The residential experience, service work, and personal connections with faculty and staff enhance our education through the vision of "engaging the whole student."
