OT - Champlain CEGEP St-Lambert

So, I have some interest in this school and just wanted to hear some reviews on it. Teachers, classes, enviornment, student life, just give me the dirt.

It's a pretty good school. I enjoyed my time there.

Teachers vary from awesome to mediocre, which is pretty much the same with any Cegep. I also went to Vanier and I can say Champlain had on average better teachers (I studied in Social).

It's a pretty small school so it has more of a high school atmosphere if you will. As Jaydee said, it gets pretty boring during breaks because there's nothing around.

Oh, and I wouldn't worry about going to the bandring..unless you're Italian.

Its ok. Better for social sciences, management and economics that most.

Its great if you live on the South Shore and you have a car, because you can basically go in and out and have a ton of free time. I used to live 10 minutes away by car.. sure beats trafic and buses and crap.

I go there currently. I really like it even though the school is a bit on the small side, especially in comparison to something like Dawson. I've had nothing but enjoyable teachers though as well, so yea..I'm happy there. It takes me 90 minutes to get there every day though, go go public transportation!

You went to Champlain? Had no idea.


It's an good school with some good teachers. As was previously mentioned, it gets boring if you've got long breaks, since the only remotely interesting place near by is Place Longueuil, but you can't really go there more than twice before going into every store worth going into and buying what's worth buying. It's right near the metro, so going into town is do-able, but still...

It's a lot smaller than other CEGEPs, most notably Dawson, so that can be a plus, or a minus, depending on your point of view. There's not really any good restaurants near by (N&G, a more expensive, glorified Belle Province; not worth it, and the things at the metro).

But yeah, all in all I enjoyed my time there.

What the hell? Never heard of any Bowman at Champlain, maybe he retired before I joined?

The rest is... well... it's a small school with not enough PCs sometimes, but the park in the back is pretty neat to chill out during the Fall session.

I liked it. Good school. Do NOT EVER take John Saba and William Butler. Got both, they are terrrrrrrrrrribble. Oh, and don't take Nesbitt either. I got her too... I can't believe I survived the trio.

Martin Bowman. I remember seeing his name on the cancellation screens a couple of times, but I'm not sure if he's still there (I went there from 02 to 05). The guy taught my mother in the 70s, so he very possibly could be retired now.

Didn't he retire ? He loves out this way now. Probably the best teacher I had in Cegep.

I posted before reading the rest of the thread. He taught at Champlain the year it opened, before the building on Riverside was finished. They had to split classes between the old Royal George building in GPK and somewhere in St.Lambert that I can't remember. The classes were designated by playing cards, like you'd have English at 10 in the 10 of hearts.

I wanted to strangle that woman on so many occasions.

I took Computer Science. Very good program with excellent teachers. I'd recommend it if you want a fast job in the field, but not if you plan to go to University.

When I went there we used to go to Sudsie's during our breaks. Taverne du Sud if you prefer, it was like a buck a Draft and it was loads of fun.

Pretty sure those two retired tho. 'Cause I never heard of them or seen them on the cancellation screens.

Good god McPhee went to my school? Did you leave your signature anywhere in the school or any artifacts?

Man, I feel old... I took a class with Martin Bowman (western literature if i think)... He actually looks alot like Scotty, but with facial hair. If you are thinking of attending Champlain, I would encourage to join a sports team, preferably rugby. Some of my best friends I have I met during my Cegep days.. good times! P.S. Anyone remember the name of the soccer coach who was arrested in the late 90s for child molestation?

Haha, her classes were always entertaining at least.



My friend and I always had the idea of going to her class drunk... but the times we had it, once was at 8 AM, and the other time was at 4 PM, and it was my only class of the day. I didn't feel like leaving home early.
