Overall

I thoroughly enjoyed my 4 years at Middlebury. The academics are strong, facilities are amazing and the setting couldn't be more beautiful. I liked the community feel of a small New England college, and appreciated the somewhat isolated environment. I highly recommend getting involved in a broad variety of extra-curricular activities. I particularly enjoyed Rugby, intramural hockey, and the East Asian Studies club.

Academics

I was an East Asian Studies major, which enabled me to take advantage of the incredible language program (I studied Mandarin), and great professors in the history, economics and political science departments. If you do choose to study a new language from scratch (which I highly recommend), you should be ready for a heavy workload in Year 1. Most people spend "J Term" on the ski slopes, but folks studying languages do an intensive month of immersion with 4 hours of class per day and a ton of homework. That being said, the program pays huge dividends and you will end up feeling confident and accomplished in your new language. A few memorable professors - don't know how many are still there - Murray Dry (Poli Sci), John Berninghausen (Chinese), and Don Wyatt (History).

College Life

The Greek life was converted to co-ed "Social Houses" at least when I was at Middlebury. The bulk of the social life on weekends revolved around parties at these houses. I really enjoyed playing Rugby - this club typically attracts a fun-loving group of students. I also played intramural ice hockey, which was amazing, and participated in lots of cultural events via the East Asian Studies Club. Highly recommend getting as involved in extra-curricular activities as possible.
