What happens during the trip registration process?

During registration, you'll share with us your interests. We’ll use your responses to help us plan activities you and your peers are interested in.  We’ll also ask you to provide us with any pertinent medical or personal history.  

What sort of things will we do on our day trips?

The day trips are divided into three categories, and we're hopeful you'll have the opportunity to participate in activities from each category during your two days of off-campus experiences! Some activities will last a half-day and other activities may take a full-day.  In the past we've visited local schools and spent time talking about where we are from with local children; visited local farms; or gone on a day hike. 

What do I need to bring on my day trip?

As we get closer to the trips we’ll let you know if you need to bring anything special but most of the activities are fairly simple.  For all day trips, we recommend bring a small backpack to carry a water bottle, sunscreen and the rest will depend on the activities you participate in. 

Where will we sleep during the day trips?

Each night you'll return to campus, and sleep in your room.

Who do I contact if I have questions about the day trips?

If you have other questions regarding the Transfer and Exchange day trip portion of MiddView, please email trips@middlebury.edu.  Our staff checks this email regularly and we are happy to answer any questions you may have.
