About

History

Middlebury is a liberal arts college of the first rank, an achievement that is the result of a process of growth and change that began in 1800, when a few men of the town of Middlebury took upon themselves the challenge of building a college in a small New England town, on what was then the American frontier. Over the more than two centuries since it was established.

Education

The College is committed to educating students in the tradition of the liberal arts, which embodies a method of discourse as well as a group of disciplines; in our scientifically and mathematically oriented majors, just as in the humanities, the social sciences, the arts, and the languages, we emphasize reflection, discussion, and intensive interactions between students and faculty members.

Research

Each summer at Middlebury, over 100 students are engaged in on-campus research with a faculty mentor. The topics range from Philosophy to Biochemistry. Most students are paid through various funding sources, including faculty grants and college endowed funds. Positions are available through individual faculty members. Students should contact faculty they wish to work with by March.

Career

The staff at the Center for Careers and Internships plan to work primarily remotely through the Fall 2020 semester per Vermont and College guidelines designed to safeguard student health.

CCI Advisors are here to help you select a major, look for a summer internship, evaluate career possibilities, apply to graduate school, or look for a job. While each advisor focuses on specific industries or fields, all of our advisors are well equipped to get you started in your own search process.

Student Life

Campus life

  • The facilities at Middlebury—academic, residential, artistic, and athletic—are among the very best in the country. Over the past two decades, the College has engaged in an ambitious building program and continues to maintain its facilities to a high standard. 
  • The Center for the Arts is a 100,000-square-foot building that opened in 1992 and provides offices and performance spaces for the music, dance, and theatre programs, in addition to housing the Museum of Art. McCardell Bicentennial Hall, a 220,000-square-foot building completed in 1999, houses seven departments in the natural and social sciences and has won several awards for both energy and environmental efficiency and technological sophistication. 

Sports facilities

Middlebury's well-maintained playing fields and outstanding athletic facilities rank among the best in the country. The College boasts an 18-hole golf course and 3.5-kilometer Red Kelly cross-country and jogging trail on campus. The nearby mountain campus includes the Middlebury Snow Bowl for alpine skiing and Carroll and Jane Rikert Ski Touring Center for nordic skiing. Outdoor facilities boast impressive views of the Adirondacks and the Green Mountains, while the 2015 addition of Virtue Field House gave the school 110,000 square feet of indoor space, including a state-of-the-art squash center to go along with the hockey arena and Olympic sized swimming pool. 

Student clubs

    • Clubs, publications, intramurals, cultural activities and events, student government, outings, religious and spiritual activities, and community engagement are great ways to get involved at Middlebury.

    • The SGA acts as a single unified group, representing students in the decision-making processes of the College. It is the official channel for student participation in formulating institutional policy affecting academic and student affairs.

There is a nice social network on campus; however, the support network that the university offers leaves much to be desired.
