In Their Words
Students have many reasons for choosing Middlebury. Once they get here, they discover things about themselves and the place that help shape who they are—and who they want to be.
What Surprised Me: As an international student, I was worried if I would fit in. But, students here are very open-minded and curious about other cultures, so it was easier to make friends. There are great support systems such as our international student orientation as well.

After Middlebury: When I came to Middlebury I thought I knew exactly what I wanted to do, but in my time here I have found a host of new interests which have complicated that trajectory. I would love to work in government and diplomacy if possible but there are many different paths that I am open to.

Guiding Forces: The pressure that comes with being a first-generation college student is definitely my biggest motivation to excel academically. However, I’m not alone in this journey: I am close friends with other first-gen Neuroscience students and we have a support system where we assist each other academically and mentally. We all have the same goal: make the best of this educational opportunity in order to be able to help our families.
