MY DREAM COLLEGE

I chose Champlain College because it was close to my home! I didn't want to lose 2 hours in my day only to get to school. I also chose Champlain college because it is public and I didn't want to pay extra fees only for the name. Also, I chose Champlain college because it was in English. I wanted to be better in English so Champlain is the perfect place for that!

GREAT SCHOOL!

Because it is very close to my house and it is in front of my high school. I chose this college because the transportation to get it is very simple it only takes a 10-minute bus ride. Also, I opted for this one because it is on the south shore and I do not need to go into Montreal.


Course Curriculum - 

Pretty general but good. The commerce classes I took made me learn a lot and I got good grades. I feel like there was not enough math in all my classes and I find math very important. I am happy with the course curriculum.

CHAMPLAIN REVIEW

Small College and it was an anglophone college, I wanted to be bilingual and since French is my first language I wanted to go to and English college. Also a small college was preferable for me to be able to enjoy this experience


Course Curriculum - 

Some introductory classes are not structured enough, as a first-year student it can be overwhelming to be left with too few if any guidelines. I would understand for a second-year class but when it's a first-year class, I believe it should be more structured
