February Orientation Trips

In 2019, we will offer various day trips that allow incoming Febs to wrap up their week with small group experiences in which new students get to know one another, and their upper-class Feb leaders. This setting provides a unique opportunity to share questions, concerns, and hopes about transitioning to life at Middlebury with those best able to relate - other students! Not surprisingly, tight-knit groups sharing a special bond often develop over the course of the program.
