First Year Experience

Printer-friendly version

The First Year Experience at Burlington College is a unique blend of advising, programming, residential life, and work in the classroom.   The primary goal is for new students to develop the skills needed to:

  • Be engaged and reflective learners in the classroom
  • Live and function independently outside of the classroom
  • Be engaged in the campus and greater community
  • Explore interests and develop friendships
  • Have fun!

Like so many things in life, the First Year Experience is what you make of it!
