Good small school, for anyone who loves a class not more than 24 students. Great reputation and still growing, and above all good school especially for business majors. I would recommend anyone to come and check out Champlain College in VT.

Despite living 1,000 miles I way, I feel that Champlain is the best option for me as a prospective Game Design student. This is highlighted by their focus on your major and the studying abroad possibilities in Montreal. Also, after visiting, I truly like the feel of the campus.
