Learn What Matters
For more than 100 years, St. Mike’s has been the place students come to pursue their passions, dig deep, take risks, explore unconventional ideas, find success, and learn what matters.
A serious love of learning is at the heart of a Saint Michael’s education. Our faculty prove the point: they’re experts in their fields who use their knowledge to foster growth through student enrichment. Their doors are always open, and they’re on a first-name basis with their students. Our average class size of 19 students means you’re always a name and never a number. And we’re one of only four Catholic colleges in New England with a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious honor society.
The potential for real-world experiences abounds at St. Mike’s, with competitive student-faculty summer research programs, research assistantships, study abroad, internships, capstone projects, and an Experiential Learning requirement built into our curriculum. Service and a commitment to social justice is at the heart of a Saint Michael’s education. More than 70% of our students get involved with projects that range from building homes to helping rescued animals to mentoring young students in our local community. Our Fire and Rescue squad is the second-busiest college squad in the country. And our outstanding Wilderness Program gets you out into the great outdoors with everything from ice climbing to hiking to kayaking to leadership training opportunities to skiing and snowboarding. In fact, every student in good academic standing gets an annual ski pass.
From live music to ice skating to guest speakers to socials to retreats to theater performances to late-night cookouts, there’s plenty to do when you’re not in class, studying, or participating in athletics. Burlington, recognized as one of the best college towns in the country, is just minutes from campus. You can be on the slopes in half an hour, in Montreal in two hours, and Boston in just over three. After your success as a St. Mike’s student, you’ll find you’re prepared for a career and a meaningful life. A liberal arts education means you’ll leave Saint Michael’s well educated, well rounded, and ready for what life has in store.
