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!
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.
