Champlain College

(D.A.R.E. to be Champlain)

At Champlain College, we find the right balance between academic excellence and a loud, proud spirit. Our namesake Samuel de Champlain recognizes his travels through the region and is a symbol of close relations with Québec and the blending of cultures and traditions. As our motto, his words “continue nos decouvertes” (“continue our discoveries!”) reflect the possibility and wonder of life as a Champlainer.

Champlain is a monument to Canadian architectural design that offers a haven for solitary study and a stirring setting for building community. Champlainers hold close their college traditions (broom ball at Bon Temps Winter Carnival anyone?) and champion strong values through active living and global perspectives. Diversity rules at Champlain, as the home to Trent International and the Study Abroad office.

DARE to be Champlain.
