note - The vast bulk of my massive Web presence (over 485 pages) had been hosted by AT&T's WorldNet service since 30 May 1996; they dropped WorldNet effective 31 Mar 2010 and I have been scrambling to transfer everything.  Everything's saved but all the links have to be changed, mostly by hand.  See my sbiii.com Transfer Page for any updates on this tedious process.

CHAMPLAIN COLLEGE
Stratis Simon Pix Page

This CHAMPLAIN COLLEGE was in
Plattsburgh, New York

THIS SCHOOL IS DEFUNCT!
DO NOT APPLY FOR ADMISSION!
{Save yourself a lot of embarrassment}

Don't even think of it!
(especially if you don't even know the meaning of the word "defunct"!) [See further admonition below.]



CHAMPLAIN COLLEGE

of Plattsburgh*, New York

(the late, if unlamented - NOT the newer #
Champlain College of Burlington, Vermont,
nor any of the others that keep coming out of the woodwork!)

ACUNY Seal - B&W
The seal of ACUNY (not Champlain, alone), with Mohawk, Sampson, and Champlain,
left, center, and right on the scroll (from the title page of the Gilbert book).

* - The city in the far northeastern corner of New York State,
on the northwestern shore of Lake Champlain,
just south of the Canadian border and Montréal, is Plattsburg (no "h");
the Pennsylvania city far to the southwest, has an h on the end - Pittsburgh -
but Champlain College was located in Plattsburg
(no matter what they call it now!).

[Ah!  But see Spelling on the main page.]

If you love the North Country or the Adirondack Mountains, you'll love the Adirondack Museum smack dab in the heart of the Adirondacks at Blue Mountain Lake, New York.  It tells the story of the Adirondacks far better than any book could.  I heartily recommend a visit!  If you can't get there, you may wish to visit my Adirondacks page.

You will find some yarns about my time at Champlain there.


Be sure to visit the main Champlain College page, the Continuation Page 1, Continuation Page 2, Continuation Page 3, and the Continuation Page 4, as well.


Champlain College and Plattsburg(h) Photographs

I had recommended that you also see the Champlain College Website of Strat(is) Simon, quite the capable photographer, who had put up six pages on Champlain on his "http://home.earthlink.net/~stratis13/" photo site, where you could have clicked on the blue college seal at lower right, or you could have gone directly there by clicking "http://home.earthlink.net/~stratis13/champlain/index.html", but his sites are now gone.  I had hoped to be able to reproduce all, or at least most, of his old site here, and wrote: "stay tuned!"

Well, Strat came through nobly; here are the first 21 of his pix, some of which are reproduced elsewhere on these Champlain College pages and some of which are new to me.  With captioning from Strat where necessary, I'll try to put them in some sort of chronological order (background, "good old days", and recent):
