Champlain is a beautiful school located in an amazing city. There is always tons to do around town and every night there is a party or some event to attend. The people at this school are laid back and very friendly. It's awesome to live in the dorms; the dorms are actually houses and it's really cozy. The student center is brand new and very nice.

That being said, the academics and academic resources just aren't there. Outside of your major (I can speak for the computer science majors), the classes are extremely easy. Some classes seem like a continuation of high school. The highest math course offered is an applied calculus course, which doesn't allow for a computer science degree. The facilities for the sciences and computer sciences are lacking greatly. I was extremely disappointed with the academics. I felt that this school would not prepare me for the job market. If you are serious or even somewhat serious about academics then you probably will be under-challenged here.

If you want to go to school for graphic design then this may be the school for you. Other than that, I would say to take a look into UVM or Saint Michael's. You'll get a more valuable computer science related degree from those schools, not to mention have better access to facilities and a quality liberal arts education.
