| I chose Middebury College out of 12 top Liberal Arts Colleges. I thought that I would major in romance languages since Middlebury is well-known around the world for its language program. First of all, that was a mistake because the college brings in all the great professors during the summer session. The average language session is as good as any school's. The liberal arts curriculum is adequate mosly because of the small class sizes and professor accessibility.|
As an African-American female, I must say that I have never encountered so much classism, racism, and sexism in the world! The students who come here are close-minded, WASPY upper class snobs from gated communities. Comments like "nouveu riche" and "nigger" are a part of my daily routine. There are even "exclusive parties" where many students of a certain ethnicity were turned away at the door. The gay pride "closet" has been torn down year after year. Students write racist remarks on cultural diversity boards. If it weren't for my strong spirit and determination to succeed,I would have left this school after the first semester. Infantile would be a compliment to these J. Crew ski freaks whose idea of a good time is getting drunk in a stuffy dorm room.
A warning to open-minded, mature, intellectually stimulated and diverse people: AVOID THIS SCHOOL LIKE THE PLAGUE!

| Midd is a wonderful place to be and it is very challenging. i think that especially for freshman some extracurricular time may suffer due to the workload but normally students enjoy (!) what they're doing so it isn't as bad as it would seem. The school is very liberal; it needs more diversity in the political area but there are other groups out there and overall the student body is pretty tolerant about views and such; more so than you would find elsewhere. It is a great place and even though we are in rural vermont there are constantly multiple events happening so that you can't do everything that you want to! there is little chance of being bored here but a great chance of a good education. i am a first year chinese student and we have already learned in three weeks what most students learn in a semester in high school. even though it's intense it is also superexciting. |

| Middlebury college: good liberal arts education. However, this place greatly lacks in terms of diversity. Minority culture is at a minimum, the minority try to adapt to the greater white culture. good arts and music. good place to go if you have no idea what you want to do with your future, you'll find many who are just as confused and unsure about their futures. |
