Why did you choose to attend Middlebury? I always knew I wanted to pursue a small liberal arts education and had a gut feeling that Middlebury was the right place for me. Retrospectively, I loved Middlebury’s focus on a global, multidisciplinary education with strong language and English literature programs. But frankly, it could have been the pumpkin muffin I ate in town before I toured our beautiful campus. Regardless, coming to Middlebury was certainly the right decision. 

Favorite study spot? Haymakers Bun Company

Favorite food in the dining hall? Just about any dessert, but mostly the carrot cake. 

Where did you study abroad, or where would you study abroad if you could? I would have loved to attend the Oxford program in England!

Favorite Vermont spot? Middlebury’s campus in the fall

One fun fact about you or unknown talent you have: I have completed over twenty round trips between Singapore and the US!
