| Middlebury is an incredibly friendly community of students and faculty who share a common interest in learning and challenging each other. I thought the environmental studies major was exceptional and probably is the best in the country. And, my brothers went to Duke and Stanford and my parents felt I definitely got the best education because of the community of learning.|
Since I transferred to Middlebury from Colgate, I can directly compare at least the two colleges. Middlebury students have a much higher sense of ethics due to the honor code, the academics are better and more engaging and there is much more to do socially as Middlebury brings in good culture options and the night life was more fun. Maybe not as hard core or fraternity centered, but more fun. I would agree with other comments that the administration is trying to control the social life through the commons system and I do not like the commons system. However, that shouldn't be enough to keep someone from attending this great college.

| Straight up-- don't go to middlebury-- at least without some serious though. I won't lie; you will get an amazing education, meet a handful of amazing people/life-long friends, and you'll do both on a campus that resembles a country club. My review paints Middlebury in quite a good light becauase it doesn't ask about what is most important about a college: tradition, a social life independent from what the administration hands you on a silver platter, and an administration that is responsive to student sentiments. I am currently a junior, and most of my friends have seriously entertained the idea of transfering-- the smart ones have. This school has SO much potential to be what it used to be, but it fails every step of the way. Also, don't come here unless they get rid of the common system over the next couple of years. |
