Middlebury College Reviews
Middlebury can get cold, but that's the only negative I've experienced so far. Midd has provided with me with everything I could have wanted from a LAC. Phenomenal academics, great student life, etc. The student body is slightly homogenous, but if you make an effort to make friends of all sorts, it can be easily done. Students take advantage of extracurriculars and the sport facilities, and a trip to Burlington isn't far away. Apply to Midd! I've had a great time there.
Attending Middlebury College, which attracts students from all over the world, has allowed me to interact with students and professors of numerous nationalities and ethnicities. I have met students that represent six continents. The opportunity to connect with students from around the globe has fostered my understanding of different cultural viewpoints and encouraged my curiosity in learning about unique perspectives through respectful discourse. However, I would love to see more socioeconomic diversity represented at Middlebury; many students come from wealthy backgrounds, so the student body does not represent true economic diversity.
In my current role, I travel to college campuses around the country to recruit and interview students for positions at my company. I see lots of different schools and interact with dozens of student populations. Each campus has a different vibe and feel, and conversations in campus coffee shops range from purely academic to purely social. I loved Middlebury for the blend of high caliber academics, a hardworking student body, and a focus on active, healthy lifestyles. Students at Middlebury balance work and play, and a weekend was never without hours in the library or miles of hiking, running or biking. The teachers have high expectations for your work, but they understand there's more to get out of college than acing every exam. As I tour college campuses today, I look for candidates who strike that same balance, who take their work seriously, but they don't take themselves too seriously. That's what Middlebury is about.
