Tell Us About Yourself(ie): An Introduction

By:Olivia Werenski ’17/ Champlain College News

Over the course of the summer, the Class of 2018 Facebook group for incoming students to Champlain has been jam packed with students bubbling with excitement regarding the upcoming school year, so we’ve decided to use it to our advantage. Our new Tell Us About Yourself(ie) series will be a weekly profile series of incoming first year students, leading up to the week of orientation and into the fall semester.

The first group of selected students were given a list of questions to choose from, ranging from personal questions to Champlain questions and selected their best answers and sent us an accompanying selfie (get it?).

Once the week of orientation is over, this series will become open to staff, faculty, upperclassman, and more!

If you would like to participate and see your answers published on the Champlain College network, review the questions below, select 10 questions, and send your answers to
