Why did you choose to attend Middlebury? I chose Middlebury because I wanted to put myself in a different environment and learn more about who I was. As someone coming from a large urban center in the South, I had always been curious about learning in a small community and the personal connections that I could build. I heard amazing anecdotes about how the college fostered intellectual curiosity and the unique learning experiences that came with that. I just threw myself into a new environment and fell in love with Middlebury!
