Why did you choose to attend Middlebury? I really valued the flexibility that Middlebury offers its students to explore interests and the ways that they spend their time here. Going into college I was a person who had an interest in a variety of different things and I wanted to explore before settling on a focus.

What’s your favorite course? My favorite course, so far, is Accelerated Italian. Learning a new language can be challenging, but the interactive nature of the course makes it really enjoyable. 

What is your favorite study spot on campus? My favorite study spot on campus is BiHall. Although, I don’t take many classes there. I’m drawn to the atmosphere and the large windows in the building. The view of the Knoll, our campus farm, is absolutely gorgeous from the 5th floor. Bihall has individual study corners on each floor and it’s good for group or solo work.
