President Dave Wolk refers to Castleton as “the small university with a big heart” and this sentiment truly reflects the intimate atmosphere of our campus. With nearly 2,000 students, Castleton is small enough to be a community where individuals matter, yet large enough to offer a diverse and challenging curriculum with more than 30 academic programs. At Castleton there is an understanding of the need for both career preparation and a liberal arts education. At Castleton there is an extensive list of resources that students can take advantage of to improve their academic experience. A few examples include:
Everything that students need can be found right on campus. In various facilities on site students have access to food, entertainment, and much more. In the residence halls internet, laundry facilities, kitchens, and lounge areas are available 24 hours a day.
Any basic needs that cannot be met on campus can be found within walking distance. In the town of Castleton students can find a barber, diner, general store, and bank. There are also many religious services for students in the area.
