Middlebury

You Made It Happen

More than 15,000 alumni, parents, staff, faculty and students made great things happen at Middlebury this year by supporting the College. We are grateful to each and every one of you!

      

Midd Thanks You

You didn’t have to give it up to Midd, 
But you did, but you did.
And I thank you.
 
We’re so grateful 'cause you did
Give to Midd, yes you did.
And I thank you.
 
You reached in your pocket and helped us out.
You know what Middlebury's all about:
Reaching for knowledge and keepin' it real.
Now I want to show all the thanks we feel.
 
You helped educate us here at Midd. 
Yes you did, yes you did.
And I thank you.
 
You built something great for every kid here at Midd,
yes you did and I thank you. Every day is something new,
From arts and athletics to the Hepburn Zoo
You make it happen—'cause you bleed true blue
And now we want to say thanks to you.
We feel the connection 'cause you did
Give to Midd, yes you did
And I thank you. We’ve got direction ’cause you did
Give to Midd, yes you did
And I thank you.
 
That gift you gave—might’ve been big or small
But we feel it from the labs to the dining hall.
It’s rockin' our classes, our professors too
And now we want to say thanks to you. Now let me thank you.
Thank you, baby.
Thank you yeah, yeah. Let me thank you.
I gotta say, you didn't have to give it up to Midd
But you did, but you did.
And I thank you.
 
We're so grateful because you did
Give to Midd, yes you did.
And I thank you.

We had a great time making this video for you.

Multiple offices on campus got involved, and so did hundreds of the students, faculty, and staff members who benefit from your generosity. If you look closely you'll see our president, Ron Liebowitz, getting into the action.

Let us thank you one more time.

We couldn't fit your name on the video credits, but you can find it—and those of everyone else who gave to Middlebury this year—in the 2012 Honor Roll of Donors.
