Why did you choose to attend Middlebury? I chose to attend Middlebury because of the community and setting. I love the proximity to the outdoors. Hiking and skiing, and numerous other outdoor activities, are just minutes away from campus. The tight-knit community, both on campus and in the town, has always made Middlebury feel like home.
