Saint Michaels College, founded in 1904 by the Society of St. Edmund and headed by President John J. Neuhauser, has been identified by U. S. News & World Report for 17 consecutive years as one of the top15 Masters Universities in the North. A liberal arts, residential, Catholic college located in the Burlington area of Vermont, Saint Michaels was recently invited to sponsor a chapter of the prestigious academic honor society, Phi Beta Kappa, on campus. Saint Michaels has 2,000 full-time undergraduate students, and some 500 graduate students and 200 international students. The College was named by Newsweek magazine a Hidden Treasure, one of 30 colleges recommended most frequently by guidance counselors for being schools that deserve more national recognition. Saint Michaels is included in Princeton Reviews The Best 366 Colleges: 2008 Edition.
