Learn What Matters  

 

Students come to Saint Michael’s College to pursue their passions, dig deep, take risks, explore their faith, find success, and learn what matters. 

A passion for learning is at the heart of a Saint Michael’s education. As experts in their fields, our faculty enrich students’ knowledge and their world-view through rigorous classwork and experiential learning. Their doors are always open, and they get to know every student personally.

Opportunities for real-world experiences abound at St. Mike’s, with intensive student-faculty summer research programs, semester-long research assistantships, study abroad offerings, internships, and in-depth capstone projects. And we are one of only four Catholic colleges in New England with a Phi Beta Kappa honors society chapter.

Following our Edmudite tradition of service, more than 70% of our students are involved with community-oriented projects, like building homes, helping rescued animals, and mentoring children. 

For students with a sense of adventure, St. Mike’s Fire and Rescue squad is the second-busiest college squad in the country. Our outstanding Wilderness Program gets you out into the great outdoors, and every student gets a steep discount on an annual ski pass. 

In addition to our proximity to the mountains, St. Mike’s is minutes away from the great college town of Burlington and Lake Champlain. From live music and theater performances to spiritual retreats and late-night cookouts, there’s plenty to do. 

As a St. Mike’s graduate with a liberal arts education, you’ll leave well rounded, well grounded, and prepared for a fulfilling career and a meaningful life.
