2015: The Year in Stories

December 21, 2015


MIDDLEBURY, Vt. -- By any measure, 2015 was a remarkable year in the life of Middlebury. Athletics stories bookended the year: a new field house in January and a national field hockey championship in November. In between we welcomed a new president and said farewell to one who had been part of the campus community for more than 30 years. We celebrated major anniversaries and new programs, and grappled with difficult issues of race, ethnicity, and student stress. Here's a look back at some of the notable stories that defined the past year.
