Most people you talk to who are still in school at Middlebury are more than satisfied with their college experience or else they wouldn’t be doling out the high tuition to come here. The academics are outstanding, though you may wonder where they’ll take you later. Students often wish they toiled less at the books and more at the booze, but the pristine facilities tend to distract from scholastic misery. Professors are brilliant, witty, and sympathetic, although there are some haughty bumps in the road. The on-campus social scene is lively and shot through with school spirit. The athletics put Middlebury at the top of its division, and the area is quaint (“quaint,” unfortunately, being the opposite of any adjective suggestive of “nightlife”).
Middlebury provides an incredibly varied experience—an opportunity to stick your paintbrush in all shades of colors, so to speak. Students can leave Middlebury with seven different areas of study, visits to 10 foreign countries, and/or stories of rock climbing in New Zealand under their belts. Sure, you’ll inevitably take a class or two that ends up as the bane of your existence for a semester, and you will cringe at the titanic tuition bill every month, but the people you’ll meet and the places you’ll go will set your experience apart from those of other students in your high school’s graduating class. The daunting ambitions of others around you will provide a constant challenge to your own motivations, actions, and thoughts.
Super easy to declare, just need a signature from the head of the department and need to choose an advisor.
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.
New buildings are great, some older ones could use work.
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.
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.
