Spring Student Symposium - April 18-19, 2013
The 2013 Spring Student Symposium is an all-campus event that showcases the scholarly and creative pursuits of the Middlebury student body. Beginning on the evening of Thursday, April 18 and continuing all day Friday, April 19, more than 350 students will present independent work to the campus community including oral presentations, performances, posters, artwork, and readings. No classes will be held on Friday. Come out and support our students during two days of intellectual inquiry, inspiration, good food, and a few surprises!
Keynote speaker, Cassidy Freeman '05, is a successful actress and musician. She is most well-known for her role as Tess Mercer on the show, Smallville, and has played various roles in other movies and TV productions. Cassidy's former advisor, Alex Draper, says: "One of the joys of watching Cassidy on stage, on screen and in life, is that she makes bold choices, and has the talent and drive to fulfill them."
