At Saint Michael's College, we believe that a college education should prepare students not only for a meaningful career, but for a meaningful life. That's why our students start by building a strong liberal studies foundation, then dive deep into their majors. By the time they graduate, they've developed essential skills and knowledge that will help ensure successful in any field. And in the meantime, they've also been engaged in service (through our popular MOVE program), in the great outdoors (with our pioneering Wilderness Program and Smuggs' Ski Pass), and with the close campus community in meaningful ways that educate the body, mind and spirit. And happiness matters. At Saint Michael's, you'll find bright, engaged, friendly, happy students and faculty. Our formula for happiness is our close campus community, our perspective-changing exploration of the liberal arts with experiential learning, our legacy of faith and service, and our stunning Vermont location.
All this happiness and engagement underscores Saint Michael's successes: We are among only ten percent of colleges and universities nationwide that host a prestigious Phi Beta Kappa chapter on campus. Our recent graduates are Rhodes Scholars, Pickering Fellows, medical students, law students, dental students, researchers, pharmacists, new media specialists, sports writers, entrepreneurs, and more. Alumni include a United States Senator, one of the founders of MTV, published authors, acclaimed scientists, investment bankers, psychologists, teachers, professors and scholars. No matter what career paths they choose, our alumni take with them a solid liberal arts foundation, a strong sense of self and a desire to give back to their communities.
Students at Saint Michael's are seriously involved with life on campus, taking on leadership roles, rallying support for worthy causes and generally making things happen. Because everyone lives on campus (student housing is guaranteed for all four years), there's a profound sense of community, and you'll always find someone ready for whatever adventures you have in mind, from taking on a research project to rock climbing. Over one third of St. Mike's students study abroad for a semester, an academic year or a summer.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
