Tips to Succeed
- Check your voice mail and email at least five times per day.
- Communicate with your professors and never be afraid to ask for help.
- Do your homework yourself to learn the material. This isn't high school anymore.
- Don't panic if don't get all of your reading done-you never will.
- Get involved-there's more to Middlebury than academics!
- Keep on track with your major by staying in touch with your adviser.
- Maintain contact with at least one or two professors for reference purposes.
- Network as a graduating senior if you expect to find a job!
- Never cheat; you risk being expelled.
- Seek off-campus and on-campus employment as soon as you arrive!
- Take a variety of classes to probe your potential interests.
Did You Know?
- Middlebury accepts approximately 110 more incoming students during the month of February. Termed "Febs," these newcomers have the opportunity to take the semester off after high school to work, travel, do volunteer work in a foreign country, study, or participate in a score of other interesting activities. Under this tag, by default, they also become members of an elite "cult" of students, where each Feb is presumed to be unique, gifted, and experienced (even if he or she stayed home and drank 40s from September to February!). There are, however, drawbacks to being a Feb. Among them, you will always be confused about your incoming Feb class, and graduation is an informal celebration in February, where you will not receive your diploma until the spring.
- A local student website offers online course evaluations. You can use this site to reference classes you're thinking of taking, so you can see how other students have rated the teacher and material. You can also post your own ratings to help out other students. Check out http://www.middkid.com/eval for more information.
- The first black graduate of any United States college was Alexander Twilight, who received his diploma from Middlebury in 1823. Twilight Hall was renovated and named after him in 1986.
- Middlebury's summer English program is actually located outside of the school's regular Middlebury campus and in sight of one of Vermont's Green Mountains, strangely named "Bread Loaf." The Bread Loaf School of English, on the land donated by Joseph Battell when he died in 1915, is therefore named after the mountain.
