Sneak Preview

Play the slideshow below for a taste of the fun from Homecoming.


The activities of students past and present speak most clearly about our program. Our alumni perform in professional dance companies; choreograph independently and found their own companies; teach in colleges, universities, private and public educational institutions; and are enrolled in graduate programs across the country. They also pursue a wide range of careers putting their dance educations to work in a variety of ways.

Alumni in Film and Media

Middlebury graduates go on to a wide range of careers – often, but not necessarily, tied to their major. Here are a sampling of Middlebury graduates who either majored in Film and Media Culture, or have pursued a career in the film and media industries. Graduates end up in the media industry from a range of majors, and FMMC majors can end up in a broad array of careers, pointing to the flexibility of a liberal arts degree.

What Do Religion Majors Do After Middlebury?

Some religion alumni continue their study of religion in academic settings or train to become clergy, but most of our alumni pursue a wide variety of professions, including law, education, medicine, business, and non-profit work. In fact, many students have found that the study of religion provides an excellent base from which to take full advantage of a liberal education.

Henry the Hydro-Tractor

In a truly collaborative effort, students, alumni, faculty and staff joined together in a unique hands-on project. In the Spring of 2008, Henry the Hydro-Tractor was born. Mark Benz '54 and Dick Catlin '54 presented the physics department with a project to convert their Ford 8N tractor from running on gasoline to running on hydrogen. Through current hydrogen developments and research and hands-on tinkering with the tractor, Maggie Bale '10, Matt Vaughan '09, Jenny Erwin '10 and Marty Schnure '10 reconstructed the old Ford to burn hydrogen, a renewable resource, instead of gasoline. With help from physics faculty and the mechanical genius of Middlebury staff, this project became what a liberal arts education should be: collaboration, hands-on learning, independence, and ground-breaking projects.

Alumni and students collaborate to create new radio theater podcast and website

Recent graduate Stefan Claypool '09 has collaborated with other alumni and current students to launch Escape Pod X, a radio theater podcast and serialized anthology about a character traveling the galaxy. The project was born out of the Middlebury Radio Theater of Thrills and Suspense (Mr|Tots), a popular radio theater program hosted by WRMC 91.1FM, the college radio station, and syndicated by other college radio stations around the country. Radio Theater at Middlebury started in 2005 with the class of 2009.

Faculty member hosts symphony broadcasts on public television

Peter Hamlin, Class of 1973 and chair of the Music Department at Middlebury, served as on-air host and interviewer for live television broadcasts of the Quad City Symphony and Dubuque Symphony on Iowa Public Television (fall, 2008).

Hamilin also was the emcee for the Vermont Symphony's youth concerts, performing in five different school locations throughout the state (spring 2009). The program included three movements from an orchestra piece of Hamlin's called Green Mountain Variations.

Hamlin's electronic music ensemble Data Stream, with Scot Schwestka, Sandy Nordahl, and Hamlin, created and performed music for a CD last summer. The CD, Flow, was released in March 2009.

Also, Hamlin composed "Grand Theft Flauto" for fellow music faculty member Su Tan. This is a piece for solo flute and live computer processing that was performed at Tufts University, Bennington and Middlebury (fall, 2009).

He has just completed a choral piece called "Chaoufarou," a setting of an excerpt from Samuel de Champlain's diary. The piece will be performed this summer, as part of the 400th anniversary celebration of Champlain's voyage, by a choir of students from France, Quebec and New England.
