There are a lot of different people from a lot of different places

I feel safe on campus. I have never encountered anything that would make me think otherwise.

Middlebury is known for it's academics and they are unquestionably really strong. The professors are knowledgable and passionate and they truly are interested in undergraduate teaching. You learn a lot. The tradeoff is that there is an incredible workload unmatched almost anywhere in the country.

Computers (and good ones at that are available in the libraries) but everyone has a laptop so it's sort of a moot point. It would be really hard to get along without a laptop. The internet is fine, it's even good if you have ethernet, but the printing tends to be inconvenient.

Athletes here are truly students first. People really love the panthers, and we do well, but I've never heard of a coach having a player do anything that would disrupt his academic performance. There are lots of people at the football games and the athletes are well integrated with the rest of the student body.

Teachers are enthusiastic about learning, and the campus itself is draped in literature. The campus, and many other magazines are options for students all year.

Health & Safety:
Never had a problem with safety here personally. It's pretty dark here, but EMS is good and hearing about something unsafe on campus is rare.
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T23:17:17Z
Most of the buildings on campus have been renovated very recently.

The town of Middlebury has a few good restaurants for average prices, but after a while the food can get repetitive.

Middlebury is a very rigorous school, but spending time in the library is easier than it is at other institutions. Not only are all the students extremely driven, but living in the middle of Vermont really limits distractions. During the week, most students do homework for a few hours each afternoon and then for another few hours before they go to sleep. On the weekends, most students go out on Friday night, sleep in on Saturday, do a few hours of homework, go out on Saturday night, and wake up early on Sunday and spend all day in the library.

At Midd, dining is included in your comprehensive tuition fee, so everyone eats every meal in the dining halls. There are only 2 (and another open just for breakfast and lunch) so your options are pretty limited.

Guys & Girls:
Almost all of the guys at Midd are white, full of themselves, and have more money than they know what to do with.

Middlebury is a small town. There's no denying that. That being said, it's still full of fun things to do if you know where to look. There's an awesome Chili festival in the spring, where local restaurants and businesses compete for the best chili (you can go and try unlimited amounts of delicious chili). 51 Main, a restaurant/bar owned by the college, usually has some good musicians playing live music at night. There's a used book store, a tea house, a town theatre, and a few thrift stores. Things generally close early, but it's a cute town with lots of quaint charm. If you really need to be in a "city," Burlington is only an hour away.

Drugs aren't really big on campus. Really the only thing I've seen is marijuana, and it's easy to avoid if you don't want to be around it. Most people just drink at parties and such. For the most part there isn't a ton of pressure to drink if you don't want to. Public safety is pretty strict about alcohol; if they see you visibly drunk or with a drink in your hand, you will most likely get a citation. Alcohol itself may not be that visible, but there are a lot of drunk people wandering about campus on any given weekend night.

Super easy to declare, just need a signature from the head of the department and need to choose an advisor.
College Junior 2013-03-23T18:48:00Z
Teachers are excellent for the most part and very passionate about their subjects, though a little digging should be done to make sure you avoid duds. You are expected to put in a lot of work, but the reward is that you learn a lot. Students for sure learn more than at most schools.
College Junior 2013-03-23T18:44:32Z
New buildings are great, some older ones could use work.
College Sophomore 2013-03-20T00:08:54Z
Its pretty solid but than again i am on a sports team here. If your not on a sports team or a pretty girl it can be hard to get into parties sometimes, but that being said they are a blast once you get there.
College Junior 2013-02-18T15:29:56Z
With the exception of one or two buildings, the buildings are very aesthetically pleasing and functional. Some of the newer buildings are very cool and all the buildings have a lot of technology to aide with classes. The athletic center is top-notch and the student center is very nice too.

There are some great places to live off campus, but they are hard to get to if you are living on campus and looking to walk to a party. There are enough apartment and house renting options though should you want to do that.
College Sophomore 2013-02-05T02:43:09Z
As a vegetarian I have found that there are ample choices, both healthy, and non-healthy, for me! We have 3 dining halls. 2 are open 3 meals a day, and 1 is open 2 meals a day. They do eventually rotate through meals, but there are always plenty of options, and the meals for the week are posted on-line.

One week it was negative 20, the next it was 40 and raining. You aren't coming to the Northeast if you aren't expecting a very cold winter. The nice thing is though, however cold it is, it is definitely sunny a lot of the time.
College Sophomore 2013-02-05T02:37:12Z
We are no Division 1 school, but sports are taken seriously at Middlebury. We are overall a very fit and athletic campus, and people are always excited to support each other at sporting events.
College Junior 2013-01-15T22:41:18Z
Middlebury has good food and is a cute little town, but it is incredibly uneventful and pretty remote. Fortunately it is a beautiful area or there would not be a lot to do.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
