@SMCAdmissions @SenatorLeahy February 25


The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and  turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.

In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.

I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: St. Michael’s College

Location: Colchester VT

On Wednesday night the Men’s Basketball team at UNC Pembroke captured a share of the regular season championship of the Peach Belt Conference. I was very excited for the Head Coach Ben Miller, his staff including his dad Eldon, his players, and all the other important people surrounding his program.

I also thought about all the former players, coaches, and managers that Ben has had. One came to mind who was actually a manager and now works at St. Michael’s College in Vermont. His name is Carlos Vega and serves as Assistant Director of Admission
for Multicultural Enrollment at St. Michael’s.

St. Michael’s is situated very close to Burlington, Vermont. The campus covers 440 acres, and is located just east of Lake Champlain. College students at St. Michael’s are not far from ski slopes.

St. Michael’s student body includes about 2,000 undergraduates; 370 graduates, 137 international students. Their students hail from 29 states and 36 countries.

Saint Michael’s is a Catholic college that was founded by the Society of Saint Edmund in 1904.

One famous alum of St. Michael’s is Senator Patrick Leahy class of 1961. Patrick Leahy was elected to the United States Senate in 1974 and remains the only Democrat elected to this office from Vermont.
