MiddView Trips


Orientation trips are a long standing tradition at Middlebury and offer the opportunity to begin your college experience with a small group of classmates and student leaders! After spending 4 days on campus, all students will depart on a MiddView Trip. All of the trips are 3-days, 2 nights, with exception of the trips for transfer and exchange students.

MiddView Trips are organized into four categories:

  • Community Engagement
  • Vermont Exploration
  • Wilderness Explorations
  • Transfer and Exchange Day trips
