Why Middlebury Matters—In Their Words
I was a part of the Sustainability Solutions Lab as a sophomore and junior, focusing on getting students to recycle, repair, reuse, and donate more. Last year I was one of the first group of summer interns working on Energy2028, helping integrate environmental issues into the curriculum. This fall my involvement took a backseat so I could play on the women’s soccer team, but I’m still busy behind the scenes because this work is so important.

I grew up in Middlebury. Attending college here allowed me to experience both the town and the College differently. As an architectural studies student, I found that our Habitat for Humanity courses captured the academic experience at Middlebury. Some classes talk about doing—this class was doing. Being part of the group of 12 students who helped design these houses and get them built made an impact on our community. That makes me so happy.

From the first day I set foot on campus, I knew there was something different and unique about Middlebury that I had to be a part of. I still feel that way. Through my experiences—from my classics and political science classes to my job at the library circulation desk to my four years on the field hockey team (with three national championships!)—I’ve built so many relationships that have shaped me. Through my Midd alumni connections, I already have a job when I graduate.

Classics and Political Science
So much of my time here has been learning to think more deeply on things I care about. I came to Middlebury believing I was going into health care, but I found my passion in innovative school curriculum, emotional development, and critical thinking. I’m designing an education reform project to help represent Rwandan youth. With an endowment grant from the Center for Community Engagement, I’ve been able to research Rwandan education and think critically about how young people can engage in their educational futures.
