    Middlesex will push you to your limits but it is one of the most positive, nurturing and character building places. Middlesex with challenge you but it won't ruin you. The teachers here are phenomenal and they love you, Even the teachers that aren't widely liked don't want to see you do poorly. We thrive in preppy sports and struggle in football but our sports teams have an undeniable amount of spirit and campus overall has decent school spirit. Food is fine, it just gets repetitive after 4 years but if you go to the super market and get a couple spices the stir fry machine will always save you. As corny as it sounds I really have found my promise here and I wouldn't have found it anywhere else. Groups can form based on race but there is lots of mixing especially because of dorm life. Dorm life is phenomenal.
    As a parent of a graduated Middlesex student (who has just graduated from college with his PhD), I truly appreciate how important the school was for him. As a gifted student, he needed courses that could challenge him. The school has teachers who have doctorates themselves, so he never needed to go outside the school to get his many advanced courses. "Balance" is their motto, offering opportunity equally across the huge spectrum of activities. All of his friends were kind, talented, and thoughtful. He loves to go to the alumni events and makes sure he contributes to their financial aid fund (as a student who greatly benefitted from their generosity). Signed, An appreciative parent
