College Extra Curriculars That Are Literally the Coolest

That's the scenario for many students at Champlain College (Burlington, VT). "This is both a ski town and a college town," explains Nicole Osakowicz, a multimedia and graphic design major at the school. "We can ride in the morning, and go to class in the afternoon. It provides a great balance for us snowboard --obsessed youth."

We'd say! With an annual average of 18 inches of snow, six nearby snowboarding/skiing areas, and $5 van rides to local mountains, the school makes everyday extra curriculars fun, and new meaning to the words "snow day" and "college ski town!"
