Saint Michael's College offers 38 majors and 38 minors, all taught by professors (never by teaching assistants) who are highly regarded experts in their fields. The typical class size is 19 students, which means that everyone knows each other by name, and learning happens through conversation as well as through lectures.

As a selective liberal arts college, Saint Michael's fosters intellectual inquiry and challenges and rewards academic achievement. The College is one of only 280 institutions in the country, and one of only four Catholic colleges in the Northeast, to shelter a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the nation's oldest and most widely known academic honor society.

In addition to a grounded liberal arts curriculum and ample honors opportunities, St. Mike's Liberal Arts at Work and Life After College programs helps to prepare you for your professional life post-college -this includes introducing new perspectives, developing independent thinking skills, and promoting a greater understanding of the deeper meanings of life.

Students Say

Small classes help to ensure that "you are not just another number in a lecture hall." Indeed, the college "really wants to help its students realize their full potential." Many tout the "strong academics" and highlight the education, biology, and religion departments in particular. Classes are often "discussionbased" and "require a conscientious student who will actively participate in discussion." Moreover, undergrads here speak effusively about their professors. As one Biology major shares, "Regardless of which class you're in, you can tell that each professor 's #1 priority is that the students succeed." A history major succinctly adds, "Whether you like it or not, your professor will know your name," while a Media Studies major notes that their "professors aren't just professors. They're lifelong teachers," with a Business Administration major stating, "I've had professors set up weekend study sessions before exams, bring in donuts for 8:00 a.m . classes, and invite students over for dinner or out for coffee. My professors have also really helped me in beginning my career—setting up research studies in my field of interest, writing incredible letters of recommendation for grad school, or networking to get me internships." It's been said that St. Mike's "could improve the Media Studies, Journalism, and Digital Arts Facility," and that "there are not enough seats in popular or required classes for the amount of students that need to take them."

When our students aren't in class, studying or performing research with their professors, you'll find them lining up for concerts at Turtle Underground, rock climbing in Bolton, representing their fellow classmates in our active Student Government, playing lacrosse or field hockey, heading down to the Flynn Center to see a Broadway musical, and so much more.

Learn to be a leader with our Adventure Sports Center leadership training programs — many of our students graduate and become wilderness guides. Or join the family at Fire and Rescue; you'll learn to be a first responder, gain life-saving skills as an EMT and be prepared for a career in health or public service. Write for the Defender, our campus newspaper, and join the long history of student and alumni journalists.

More than 70 percent of our students participate in service, reflecting our passion for and history of social justice. You can explore spirituality through retreats and campus ministry programs, and put faith into action with extended service trips.

Students Say

In their own words: "the typical student is upper-middle class, environmentally and politically aware, and always says 'Hi,'" and who quickly dons "North Faces and UGGs during the cold Vermont winters," and, although St. Mike's is a Catholic school, students "are all different in regards to religions, races, sexual orientations and genders." The most frequent comment made by firstyears "is that they were shocked when a student held the door open for them." Giving back to the community is a main theme in terms of the typical student here at St. Mike's, as exemplified by the statement that "nearly all students participate in at least one service project during their four years here. Most students are concerned about the environment and social justice." Students are "very relaxed for the most part" and enjoy "the outdoors that this great state provides for us." "If you're genuine and true to who you are you're bound to do well at St. Mike's."

Overview

From The School


Location


Place any town on the shores of Lake Champlain and surround it with mountains and you'd have a special place to go to college. Add the shops, businesses, restaurants and energy that you find in downtown Burlington and you have a place that Travel & Leisure Magazine just named the top college town in America. Burlington is known as one of the healthiest, happiest and most appealing cities in the whole country (one that draws 14,000 college students a year).

Live music, great food from around the world, the beaches of Lake Champlain, the Community Boathouse, the seven-mile bike path, internship-friendly companies like Global Foundries, GE Medical, Burton Snowboards, Dealer.com and Ben and Jerry's, and quick access to top ski areas like Smugglers' Notch, Stowe, and Sugarbush are just part of our location's appeal.

Vermont is green, in more ways than one. The Green Mountains surround campus, providing spectacular views of Camel's Hump and Vermont's highest peak, Mount Mansfield. The Adirondacks of New York are just across the lake. We also care deeply about the environment. On campus, we recycle, we compost, we refill our water bottles, we eat local and shop local. We're a Fair Trade institution and we have our own organic garden and farm stand during the growing season.

Right outside of campus are sites for hiking, rock climbing, river and lake kayaking, and fly fishing. Our Adventure Sports Center will get you into the great outdoors in ways you might never have imagined (ice climbing, perhaps?).

Vermont is not only a beautiful state and Burlington a city with a vibrant cultural scene, it is a place with a scale that offers more opportunities. As a small state with an approachable and welcoming culture, professors can introduce you to almost anyone you might want to meet. That means opportunities for internships, interviews, or important insights on a project are within easy reach.

People come from around the world to visit our part of Vermont. St. Mike's students are lucky enough to make this place their college home.

Campus Facilities & Equipment


Our campus is a 24-hour living and learning community where our students not only eat, sleep and study, but socialize, get involved, develop lifelong friendships and become better citizens. All full-time undergraduates live on campus (unless you live with your family). With more than a dozen residence halls and student apartments, there are plenty of housing options at St. Mike's Dining options provide something for everyone, just about any hour of the day or evening. The Green Mountain Dining Room is open daily from early morning until night and serves three meals a day with unlimited servings. The menu changes daily and includes a variety of main dishes, pizza, a deli counter, burritos, grill specialties, chef's exhibitions, custom salads, soups and desserts. Vegetarian options are always available. The Durick Library supports research and scholarship by students, faculty, and staff. Collections include 460,000 books (including over 230,000 ebooks), 120,000 online journals and magazines, and 5000 DVDs, with 4000 items added each year. The library provides access to state of the art search technology, including 160 research databases and off-campus access to online resources.

Students can operate the telescopes at the Holcomb Observatory on campus. Advanced labs for science students, which includes a new scientific imaging lab and a Nuclear Magnetic Rosonance Spectormeter, are throughout the Cheray Science building with modern and advanced equipment to support the College's vibrant research culture. Other dedicated labs include a Media lab for journalism/digital arts; and for computer students, Canvas, Linux and Mac labs.

We also have Learning Resource Center, multiple computer labs and public and teaching labs. Public Safety and Fire & Rescue share quarters in the modern and well-equipped Sutton Station across the street from main campus.

Our Chapel of Saint Michael the Archangel is the largest Catholic worship space in Vermont and serves as a gathering space for speakers, music, and community discussions. It is a and welcoming place for students from all backgrounds to gather and contemplate.

Off-Campus Opportunities


Over 70 percent of our students participate in service trips through our Mobilization of Volunteer Efforts (MOVE) office, traveling to sites like soup kitchens in New York City, reservations in South Dakota and animal shelters in Utah. Students at St. Mike's are deeply involved in community service projects and some have taken the initiative to start their own organizations to help the needy or raise awareness about important societal challenges.

Students also gain valuable hands-on experience through our Liberal Arts @ Work program, internships, or do student teaching in their fields. As for going even farther off campus, more than 1/3 of St. Mike's students study abroad, choosing from more than 100 programs based all over the world.

Members of our celebrated and long-established Fire and Rescue Squad serve campus and the surrounding communities 24 hours a day, 365 days a year; interacting closely and frequently with other first-responders and medical professionals.

Students Say

Burlington Vermont (less than ten minutes from campus minutes by bus) is "one of the greatest places to be in this part of the country. There is so much to do in such a small, convenient area." Of Burlington, students say that "Church Street is crowded with unique shops, fantastic restaurants, and interesting people." Many also love to take advantage of Vermont's outdoor recreational options and the school counts many avid skiers, snowboarders, and hikers among it ranks. In fact, "Saint Michael's provides amazing ski pass deals and transportation to amazing ski resorts in the area." St. Mike's campus is "tiny, but in the cold months of winter, five minute walks to class are a godsend." Life at St. Mike's is "pretty chill." "If a student is one that likes to party, they are able to find it on campus. If a person is more reserved, there are thousands of other things that that person can do." "St. Mike's students have their heads on straight when it comes to making decisions." Students feel that the food "lacks flavor," although it should be noted that this is the way of most undergraduate dining experiences.

Saint Michael?s College is devoted to ensuring equal educational opportunities and a responsive campus environment for students with disabilities. Students wishing to disclose a learning disability or a disability that affects learning and who are in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Sec. 504, may receive additional support. A clear understanding of strengths and weaknesses in learning and of the influence of the disability on current and past educational processes will afford a broader assessment of capabilities, challenges, and consonant needs. To ensure the provision of reasonable and appropriate accommodations for students with learning disabilities, students needing such accommodations must provide current and comprehensive documentation, including the diagnosis of the learning problem(s), a copy of the psycho-educational evaluation completed within the past 5 years that includes a measure of cognitive functioning, and current measures of reading, math, and written language achievement. Informational processing must also be assessed. The testing must be conducted by a certified professional, address the nature of the disability, and include the professional?s assessment of how the learning difference will influence academic success. The report must also include recommendations for reasonable accommodations. The earlier the information is received, the better prepared we will be to address specific needs.

Sustainability

Saint Michael’s College prides itself on a strong sense of community that informs its collaborative approach to greening the campus. The Office of Sustainability in collaboration with students, faculty and staff has facilitated sustainability efforts on campus which run the gamut, covering everything from recycling programs and a lecture series to free local transportation options for students and staff. The College’s “Three Degree Challenge” promotes energy efficiency in existing buildings on campus by turning down thermostats. A campus-wide, single-stream recycling program and an on-site composting facility are helping Saint Michael’s get closer to becoming a zero-waste institution. Low-flow plumbing became the standard at the college fifteen years ago, and now all campus showerheads and sink aerators are optimized for water conservation. The College’s Organic Garden program offers students hands on experience with growing healthy food and offers summer workshops for faculty and staff. Opportunities for sustainable research are available through collaborative efforts like the Lake Champlain Research Consortium and through the college’s own sustainability office as well as through the new environmental studies major. The new Dion Family Student Center and Residence Hall utilizes geothermal energy, has a new interactive educational Energy Dashboard and was built with many energy efficiency technologies. The student environmental club, Green Up, led a successful campaign to ban the sales of bottled water on campus, organizes the popular Earth Week events and runs many other educational programs on campus. The fleet of college owned vehicles now includes five hybrids, and the College offers all students and staff free CCTA bus commuter passes in order to reduce the number of cars, and therefore carbon emissions, on campus. Additionally, two solar-powered electric vehicle charge stations are located on campus.
