College students return to Burlington

Posted: Updated:

It's back-to-school time for college kids and students are moving in this weekend at the University of Vermont and Champlain College in Burlington.

At the University of Vermont, families filled the campus Friday as young people settled into their dorms. They're coming from around the world in larger numbers than ever before. This year, UVM has 280 undergraduate international students-- nearly double the number from two years ago.

UVM will hold its annual convocation ceremony Sunday evening. President Tom Sullivan will welcome students at 6 p.m. at Patrick Gym. From there, the gathering is invited to head down Main Street to the UVM Green for a candlelight ceremony to welcome first-year students.

That means the whole section of Main Street between Prospect Street and East Avenue will be closed from 7-9 p.m. Sunday.
