Middlebury isn't that bad for minorities. You have to self-segregate but other than that, no one's going to go out of their way to attack you. It's not that kind of campus. Sure, you'll hear some rude verbal attacks and hear some outrageously racially insensitive opinions in class or in the dining hall, but it's not bad. These things can be expected at a very non-diverse campus such as Middlebury.

Academics are very strong. Chances are that you'll have to write a thesis. This is an excellent opportunity to be exposed to real research before grad school.

This school will offer you a classic college experience. You'll drink, party, study, and have lots of fun. The buildings and surrounding mountains are absolutely awe-inspiring.

However, it gets VERY cold in the winter. Atrociously cold. And you'll get cabin fever because you don't want to go outside because of the cold. Sometimes the heaters in your room don't work. Cold. Cold. Cold. Bring Alaska gear with you. Real talk.

As a minority, I felt uncomfortable but like I said previously, if you seek out other minorities and "outsiders" you'll be fine.

I'd still go to Middlebury if I had to do it over again. It made a man out of me!

commentWhy do you "have to self-segregate"? Because George Wallace is dead?
