Absolutely loved my time here! I felt challenged academically, socially, etc! As a PWI, Middlebury has a long way to go before it’s as inclusive and equitable as students would like to see, but the conversations are moving in the right direction. Highly liberal campus, rural, but generally pretty positive queer community, wonderful traditions that make students feel like family. Check out Nocturne!
Overall very good school. Excellent academics and relatively few restrictions regarding academic paths. Advisors are hit or miss, but the ones that are helpful go above and beyond. The sports scene is extremely hype. Despite being a D3, Midd students enjoy the fanfare and community that surrounds the athletics department. Easy to make friends. Very appealing to those who enjoy the outdoors.
It is a school that is very peaceful and it creates a perfect environment to focus on your studies and engage more with the nature, since Middlebury College is surrounded by nature. It creates an opportunity for people who are from cities to explore the world of nature.
I am a sophomore at Middlebury and overall I'm very happy with my decision to go here.
Middlebury is a small school and while this is not for everybody, it brings many great advantages especially if you're shy like me. All of my professors that I've had so far know who I am, even those for the two larger intro classes that I took. This is a cliche, but go to office hours - I started going this year and I've really gotten to know my professors.
The small school also means that you will see many people you know on the way to class, but there's always enough going on that you will not be bored. Most people tend to be apathetic and not go to shows or games unless their friends are in it, but there's so much brilliant student talent it would be a shame to sit at home.
There is a pretty heavy drinking culture on the weekends with the mentality "work hard play hard" ruling the school, but this is by no means a party school. Everything pretty much shuts down around 1am and most parties are hit or miss.
The town itself is rather small but you can get pretty much anything you want with a little walk. I don't have a car and I manage, but it can be helpful if you want to go to the TJ Maxx, the bigger grocery store or to leave the town for a bit. I come from New York City and I like the small town vibe because it's such a change of pace and there are still many cute restaurants and shops, but some of my friends are bored by it.
The one thing I will say is that mental health is a big problem on campus. The work is stressful and it's compounded by the terrible weather. Many students, especially those from the south, suffer from SADS. There is also a culture of one-uppmanship on campus where people simultaneously try to prove that they are the most stressed but also that they have the most perfect lives, creating a culture of competition that leads to stress. A lot of students suffer from depression and anxiety, but it's a bit of a taboo topic on campus. I hope this will change in the future. Coming here is also a big adjustment if you are a person of color, a first generation college student or a first generation American. A lot of the other students grew up in very insular communities and while they don't mean any harm, a lot of passive comments can cause stress and it can be difficult to feel like you belong.
Overall, I'm happy with my experience at Midd I just wish it wasn't so stressful all the time.

Preppy gated community, hipsters out in the middle of farmland
Yes, there are many many preppy white rich kids. However, there is a large number of international students. And not all the white kids are preppy. There's an increasing population of arts-interested students--musicians, artists, actors--who bring culture to campus. Also, interest in outdoor activities transcends all stereotypes. If you go to Middlebury, odds are you like to hike, ski, camp or at least take long carrides into the sunset.
I loved Middlebury because it is beautiful in both landscape and population. Kids are smart and engaged and interesting and inspired...not to mention pretty good looking. My friends varied interests got me into things I never expected--political issues, fun outdoor activities, arts initiatives, etc.
Also, as cold as it might get, the scenery never disappoints. It's truly magnificent. You might be freezing and in a bad mood, but when the sun sets over the Adirondaks, a smile will inevitably spread across your icy cheeks. And when spring happens, the whole campus comes alive. Such fun outdoor events and even classes are sometimes held outside. Swimming holes and cliff jumping and sweet mountains.
Food is delicious. There's always fun and interesting things going on on campus. Parties, concerts, lectures, the works. Something for everyone almost every day of the week.
Classes are extremely varied and professors are mostly brilliant and accessible and understanding. They're rigorous and fair. I never felt my grades were inflated..I got what I deserved. The work ethic I developed at Midd has carried over to my "real world" job.
I always preferred seminar-style classes: small, discussion based classes. They were intimate and i learned a lot from my classmates. i also learned a lot from my friends, talking about their classes and papers and theses.
Middlebury is about building knowledge, not about getting a job. A well-rounded education. And here i am in a job that happens to be based on exactly what i studied: art history and religion. It's possible for a liberal arts degree to translate into an actual occupation!
Environmental movement begun at Middlebury College - among many other climate change intiatives
Middlebury is a place where you go to find yourself while being academically challenged.
don't enter the hook up culture
I brag that it was a small school where I was able to have very close contact and teaching from my professors. I brag that our science program was exceptional and that I got to take many advanced lab courses as well as complete a full year research thesis. I often tell stories of how my organic chemistry class was very unique in that my professor (Steve Oster) was able to incorporate liberal arts and history into organic chemistry labs. He pushed us to be creative and thoughtful and appcreciate our education.
My school is great, but not that crazy or fun.
Environmental issues, Languages, Econ and English. Small classroomes, wonderful professors and new buildings
The school and the faculty value flexibility, spontaneity, pragmatism over concrete-literal "following the rules"; the school values thinking for yourself and common sense. You are expected to work hard and think independently and try new things.
Lack of diversity among student body, faculty, and staff.
Some students don't like that the nearsest club is in Burlington, 40 minutes away. Middlebury has two bars, and since only seniors are 21-years-old, most activity happens on campus. This is fine--the Middlebury Police do not come on campus, and the College's Public Safety is firm but nice. Just put the drink down when the lights flash, and you'll have no trouble.
Creative, self-motivated people who want the liberal arts college experience and a small, close-knit community would enjoy life at Middlebury College. Vermont is a beautiful, rural state, and those who enjoy the countryside would do better than those who thrive in a big city.
preppy, white, upper-class, athletes
that I'd feel out of place based on my background.
