School Notes:

  • The facilities at Middlebury—academic, residential, artistic, and athletic—are among the very best in the country. Over the past two decades, the College has engaged in an ambitious building program and continued to maintain its facilities to a high standard, with little deferred maintenance. Almost all of Middlebury's residence halls have been renovated or newly constructed since the mid-1980s.
  • We have more than 850 courses in 44 majors and have 9:1 student-faculty ratio.
  • The College curriculum is designed to ensure that each student's education includes a certain breadth of experience, as well as in-depth study in one area defined by the major. Curricular breadth is achieved through a set of distribution requirements that encompass seven academic categories and four courses in different cultures and civilizations. There are also other general requirements—which Middlebury sees as opportunities—providing the chance to explore new areas of inquiry. In all of these areas students have a broad range of choices.
  • Athletics are an essential part of the overall educational experience at Middlebury College. The College endeavors to provide athletic programs that are comprehensive and varied, offering athletic opportunities to all students
  • Middlebury College is charter member of the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC). Other members are Amherst, Bates, Bowdoin, Colby, Connecticut College, Hamilton, Trinity, Tufts, Williams and Wesleyan.
