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.
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.
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.

We oversee programs designed to enhance students’ college lives through social, cultural, spiritual, educational, student government, and physical cocurricular experiences.

The Office of Environmental Health & Safety provides advice, guidance and resources to the Middlebury community on occupational safety and risk management. The responsibility for Middlebury's safety culture is shared, and requires active commitment from all departments and positions.
Middlebury College offers a wide variety of club sports administered through the Student Activities office. Club sports are an essential part of the overall Middlebury experience, providing a diverse array of competitive and recreational opportunities where no varsity options exist. Club sports will not be approved in areas where a varsity sport exists. Approval for new club sports is contingent upon the availability of appropriate facilities, storage, and staff oversight. Approval given to a new club sport does not automatically guarantee funding.
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.
