Academic and Student Support

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:

    • ESL and tutoring is provided for students free of charge at the Academic Support Center.
    • Renee Beaupre White in Career Services can help students figure out what careers they would like to explore as well as guide them through the job-hunting process and much more.
    • Chrispin White at “The Center” over Moriarty House helps students find meaningful and professional internships.
    • Calvin Coolidge Library is also a powerful resource for students. The library contains over 500,000 items and has access to many more through the interlibrary loan system. Additionally, the library also owns many more research data bases, several with full text articles. The dedicated and professional staff will help students find just what they are looking for.

On and Off Campus Resources

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.
