Although Castleton University has much evolved since its inception in 1787, pieces of its history can be spotted throughout campus. The newest addition to the ever-growing Castleton archived collection is an authentic Civil War sword, recently donated to the university by William Leavenworth, a descendant of Abel Leavenworth, a prominent figure in Castleton history.
Castleton students have the opportunity to engage in meaningful and impactful research with faculty from many different programs. This can occur through an independent study, a honor’s thesis, a capstone project, or in the context of a class. Whether students are studying BPA degradation in surface water, exploring voting patterns in Vermont, or creating documentaries, students working closely with their faculty mentors benefit a great deal from this type of experiential learning.
The Office of Career Services assists students with all aspects of career planning including choosing a major/career, self-assessment, exploring career-related interests, developing effective internship and job searching strategies, applying to graduate school or changing careers.
