Middlebury College Students Tell It Like It Is

First-Chance Dance- Held in McCullough Social Space the Saturday before classes begin, the First-Chance Dance is a dance party thrown by the College and designed to award all newbies the boost they need to get the booty they want.

See, Middlebury won't leave you out in the cold as a brand new freshman, and neither will we! The College Prowler guidebook to Middlebury will make you feel like an insider before you even step on campus!

Hear the real deal on the College from the experts themselves, the students . . .
"Sometimes I wish I'd gone somewhere where I would have had more free time, but when I think about the opportunities that are open to me because I went to Middlebury and excelled in such a rigorous academic environment; I'm happy that I stuck it out!"

Every Midd Kid has some words of wisdom for you:

"I wonder what it would have been like to go to college in a city, but I don't regret coming to Middlebury College in the least. Middlebury is a beautiful, intensive place to spend four years, and I've met lots of interesting people here."

What does the atmosphere Middlebury have to offer? Well, Robert Frost seemed to like it. For 23 summers, he made the mountains just outside of Middlebury his home. When he welcomed New England into his heart, the Middlebury area struck him as particularly captivating. The founder of the town's Vermont Book Shop knew the poet well, and the Middlebury College Library houses many of his first editions.

And after a night out on the town, did you know Midd Rides, a bus designed to save students from their own aimless, drunken debauchery, sometimes offers cookies to its passengers (as long as they aren't tossing some of their own)?

The town and campus are so safe that theft is rarely a problem at Middlebury - but bike "borrowing" is.

And what sort of people should you expect to be surrounded by?

"Middlebury has an attractive student body. We have lots of young, spry blonds."

"I like the school, and I am glad I came here. Now that I am about to graduate and don't know what I want to do with my life, and realize all the bills that are going to start coming in for my student loans, I have to wonder if going somewhere less expensive might have been a better idea. For now, I don't have any regrets regarding my choice, and I feel that the education and the contacts I obtained here will help me in the end, anyway."

Find out if Middlebury has something for you, straight from the students' mouths.

Visiting campus isn't enough.

Read our Middlebury College insider's guide and discover what it feels like to be on campus for 4 years.

About the Author:
Welcome to College Prowler®

During the writing of College Prowler’s guidebooks, we felt it was critical that our content was unbiased and unaffiliated with any college or university. We think it’s important that our readers get honest information and a realistic impression of the student opinions on any campus—that’s why if any aspect of a particular school is terrible, we (unlike a campus brochure) intend to publish it. While we do keep an eye out for the occasional extremist—the cheerleader or the cynic—we take pride in letting the students tell it like it is. We strive to create a book that’s as representative as possible of each particular campus. Our books cover both the good and the bad, and whether the survey responses point to recurring trends or a variation in opinion, these sentiments are directly and proportionally expressed through our guides. College Prowler guidebooks are in the hands of students throughout the entire process of their creation. Because you can’t make student-written guides without the students, we have students at each campus who help write, randomly survey their peers, edit, layout, and perform accuracy checks on every book that we publish. From the very beginning, student writers gather the most up-to-date stats, facts, and inside information on their colleges. They fill each section with student quotes and summarize the findings in editorial reviews. In addition, each school receives a collection of letter grades (A through F) that reflect student opinion and help to represent contentment, prominence, or satisfaction for each of our 20 specific categories. Just as in grade school, the higher the mark the more content, more prominent, or more satisfied the students are with the particular category.

Once a book is written, additional students serve as editors and check for accuracy even more extensively. Our bounce-back team—a group of randomly selected students who have no involvement with the project—are asked to read over the material in order to help ensure that the book accurately expresses every aspect of the university and its students. This same process is applied to the 200-plus schools College Prowler currently covers. Each book is the result of endless student contributions, hundreds of pages of research and writing, and countless hours of hard work. All of this has led to the creation of a student information network that stretches across the nation to every school that we cover. It’s no easy accomplishment, but it’s the reason that our guides are such a great resource.

When reading our books and looking at our grades, keep in mind that every college is different and that the students who make up each school are not uniform—as a result, it is important to assess schools on a case-by-case basis. Because it’s impossible to summarize an entire school with a single number or description, each book provides a dialogue, not a decision, that’s made up of 20 different topics and hundreds of student quotes. In the end, we hope that this guide will serve as a valuable tool in your college selection process. Enjoy!
