Middlebury College Top Questions

What kind of person should attend this school?


Everyone at my school is so smart; I used to be the top of my class in high school and now I'm average. You have to work hard to do well in the classes and not breeze through like you did in high school. It may be hard, but in the end it will be worth it. You'll love Middlebury and even before the first year is over, you'll be calling it home.


Ultra-liberals with no tolerance for other viewpoints. People who want to get away with date rape, since the school only covers it up and sweeps it under the carpet. If you love extremely cold climates and rural surroundings, then the setting will suit you.


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.
