Community and Friendship

President Ronald D. Liebowitz delivered this address to the Class of 2012 on September 7, 2008.

Welcome! I trust your first week on campus has gone well. From everything I have heard, your move-in, registration, first-year seminar meetings, and all of the other beginning-of-the-year activities have gone smoothly. The mosquitoes, unfortunately, decided to come out in full force to welcome you to Vermont, though they were not part of the official orientation program.

President Ronald D. Liebowitz delivered this address to the Class of 2011 on September 9, 2007.

Welcome! I trust your first week on campus has gone well. From everything I have heard, our move-in, registration, First Year Seminar meetings, commons meetings, placement exams, and all of the other beginning-of-the-year activities that we somehow manage to fold into your orientation went smoothly, and many people deserve a lot of credit for helping to make our orientation such a success.

Welcome! I trust your first week on campus has gone well. From everything I have heard, it has ... and tomorrow, you will officially begin a new phase of your lives.

Those of you who went on MOO trips, I hope all the mosquito bites have stopped itching. And for those of you who didn't go on the MOO trips, I hope those mosquito bites have stopped itching, too.

Convocation Address 2009

Welcome! It is my pleasure, on behalf of the faculty, staff, trustees, and your fellow Middlebury

students, to extend a warm welcome to you, the class of 2013. I trust you have enjoyed your week of orientation, which benefited from what has to be one of the finest weeks of weather any of us here can remember. I would love to report that this will continue until May of 2013, but alas, I would hate to lose credibility with your class so soon!
