This white van hasn't moved from the Maple Street parking garage under 194 St. Paul Street since early this summer. Students have graffitied in the dust accrued on the body.

I remember reading the email, back in April of 2018, that Champlain College students would not be able to park in the garages below 194 St. Paul Street. Of course we couldn’t. It made sense originally; Champlain College made a deal with the city when they purchased the lot. The parking below 19...

Last spring, flyers with the words “IT’S OKAY TO BE WHITE” began popping up on college campuses across Burlington. Just a little over a month ago, at least one more flyer was found on Champlain College’s campus. The school’s president, Donald Laackman, sent an email to students and faculty, ...
