MIDDLEBURY, Vt.?With the end of Middlebury College's winter term, many students also celebrate the closing of their undergraduate college careers.
|Some graduates ski with considerable expertise and vim while participating in the ski-down.|
The college offers admission to students twice each year, in September and again in February. A program in its own right at Middlebury since the 1970s, February admissions is designed to allow some first-year students to begin their college studies in the spring semester after high school graduation instead of starting immediately in the fall. As these students complete their undergraduate careers, the college honors their accomplishments with a weekend-long mid-winter celebration.
|Some graduates, who often learn to ski while at Middlebury so they can participate in the celebratory ski-down, negotiate the slope with care.|
|Some graduates simply make the procession by hook or by crook - or in this case, by snowshoe.|
