Welcome to Middlebury College!


Congratulations on being admitted to Middlebury. We are excited to invite you to take your place among our 2,500 undergraduate students who are each a unique part of Middlebury’s inclusive and engaged liberal arts and sciences community. For the fall 2021 semester, we intend to offer the vast majority of classes in-person, and to return to near-normal campus activities and operations. 

We have an exciting update for you! Due to the evolving COVID-19 travel restrictions in Vermont, we will resume campus tours in a limited capacity starting on Tuesday, April 27. Tours will be offered exclusively for admitted students and their families by appointment only. 

If you would like to experience the Middlebury campus in-person and chat with a current student or an Admissions representative, please click here to learn more and register. 

Next Steps

Congratulations and Welcome

Nicole Curvin, dean of admissions, is glad you’re here.

- Hello new friends and congratulations. I’m Nicole Curvin, dean of admissions, and I am delighted that you have been accepted to Middlebury College. We feel truly fortunate to have had the chance to learn about you, and to consider not only your accomplishments thus far, but what we can see you will bring to us at Middlebury. I know that this has been a particularly challenging time, probably not what you imagined your senior year or your college search being. So I also want to thank you for your optimism and we look forward to the future together. I deeply appreciate your interest in Middlebury. I encourage you to connect with us, our admissions team, our students, our faculty, our staff, and alumni can answer any questions that you may have. We’re an inclusive, creative, dynamic, and engaged academic and residential community, filled with ideas and opportunities. And we can’t wait to have you among us. Welcome to Middlebury.

A Welcome from President Patton

Greetings from Laurie L. Patton, 17th president of Middlebury 

- Greetings, future Middlebury students. I’m Laurie Patton, and I’m the president of Middlebury. And I’m so pleased to have this opportunity to say hello and congratulations on your acceptance. First, I want to encourage you to take a moment to be proud of this. This is an accomplishment. You’ve been admitted to one of the country’s top liberal arts and sciences colleges. You’ve also been admitted to what is arguably one of the most globally engaged liberal arts and sciences colleges in the country, with an opportunity to study at 12 language schools, 36 schools abroad, and the Middlebury School of International Studies at Monterey in California. So be proud of your acceptance. And even more importantly, I also want you to be proud of who you are. You’ve been admitted because you already embody the values that I believe every student, staff, and faculty member has at Middlebury: integrity, rigor, connectedness, curiosity, openness, and resilience. You’ve shown integrity in the way that you conduct yourself, rigor in your studies and extracurricular work, connectedness through your activism, your volunteering, your time spent in the arts or athletics. You’ve shown curiosity about the world around you by going the extra mile in everything that you do, an openness in the generosity of spirit that we’ve seen in your application, and resilience in being here at this moment during this very challenging year, planning ahead and creating your future. I’ll end my greeting by sharing with you one of my favorite things about Middlebury, and that’s our physical place in the world. In addition to all of the wonderful aspects of the College that I’ve just shared with you, being here in Vermont, this natural, peaceful, often breathtakingly beautiful state is truly special. Every day at Middlebury, the power of the outdoors and the inspiration of the natural world around us is everywhere. It’s what energizes our learning, whether that’s in the sciences or languages or humanities or social sciences or arts, or one of our greatest strengths, environmental studies. The poet Heather McHugh tells us that everyone should live by a large mountain range or body of water to inspire and remind us of our place in the world. Here at Middlebury, we are perhaps more than any other college in the country imbued with a profound sense of place. I’m excited for you to come learn with us here, with these people, in this landscape and discover your place in the world. We hope to see you very soon.
