Event Management Students Tour Vermont Tent Company
Five Champlain College students took a behind-the-scenes tour of the Vermont Tent Company on Wednesday, Feb. 1 courtesy of Mike Lubas, one of the company’s owners. The students are minoring in Event Management, which is now offered in the Division of Communication and Creative Media (CCM).

Event Management students in the showroom at the Vermont Tent Company: Will Ralston, Emily LaPlume, Nicole Glidden, Emileigh Durrell and Mariel Larmand.
