THE ADMISSIONS SENIOR INTERNS
Hello from the Senior Admission Interns! Every year the Undergraduate Admissions team gathers a group of seniors who are passionate and excited about Champlain College. We offer a variety of perspectives since we represent different majors, interests and backgrounds. During this academic year, we work closely with the counselors on the Undergraduate Admissions Team. You can find us greeting prospective students and families, answering their questions about the College, hosting Google Hangouts, and meeting with students one-on-one for informational interviews.

Lamonte Gambrell Jr, Law Major
Hometown: Philadelphia, PA
Fun Fact: I wasn’t able to ride a bike until I was 18 years old. After graduation we all went to my best friend’s house, and he told me that I had ride his little sister’s bike. It was pink with a barbie basket, at that time I was over 6 feet tall and the bike was made for someone 5 feet tall, so it was pretty hilarious. Sad part is I think he still has the videos.
Favorite place: Church Street in the summer.
What are you involved in on campus?: I’ve been involved in a few different things on campus. I’ve been a Resident Assistant for two years which was one of the most rewarding things that I have done since coming to Champlain. Also from the first day I stepped foot on campus, I became a big part of the Champlain College basketball scene. Whether it was the intramural season or just simply pick up basketball I was there 9 times out of 10. As well as that I am also very involved with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. There I’ve done mentoring work for incoming first year students, worked in camp-like programs which brought high school students to the school for a week, and worked briefly as a student employee.
