The student leaders of the FLIP Leadership Program (FLIP) are responsible for providing services, resources and support to students transitioning into college life. FLIP leaders help create a well-rounded college experience as it relates to successful academics, positive social experiences and a healthy lifestyle. FLIP Leaders are ambassadors of the FLIP program and Champlain College as a whole. Hosting meetings once a week, FLIP puts together “crews” or teams of students that work on various projects at the college. Some of these include volunteering off campus, helping to distribute Holiday baskets from a local elementary school, Night on Campus to give students the opportunity to make new connections, taking part in mental health week, and club fairs as well as being the first call for volunteers at almost every event on campus.
A recently developed branch of Flip was started in 2020 entitled FlipIt (Flip Integration Trio). It is a trio because the program is three-fold. The first being the FlipIT Guide Program that pairs first-years with returning students in order to provide a more fluid transition into college life. The second are integration events, such as Night on Campus; and the third are workshops that assist students to excel in their CEGEP academic career. The workshops themes range from stress management to note taking and everything in between!
Sign-ups for the FlipIT guide program occur at the beginning of the Fall semester on your Omnivox account.
