Students Exhibit Creative Works at Old Stone Mill Showcase

May 6, 2015


Slide Show



MIDDLEBURY, Vt. -- Old Stone Mill and Annex, Middlebury's haven for non-academic creative ventures, hosted its annual showcase last week featuring many of the 100 student projects underway. The building, just a short walk from campus along the banks of Otter Creek, provides space for students who wish to pursue projects outside their regular academic life at Middlebury. The student-driven projects range from business start-ups to construction to visual and performing arts. All are self-designed.

On a beautiful spring evening, some of the projects on display included a popular student band that was working to produce its first album; a watercolorist honing his skill and creating greeting cards; a student refining his craft beer brewing skills; and a student planning a 12-city national tour in a remodeled school bus as part of The Future Project, which aims to inspire youth success in struggling communities.

Old Stone Mill is part of Middlebury's Programs on Creativity and Innovation.
