Welcome Class of 2024.5!

New Febs -- Come See Us at the Student Services Fair, March 5

Learn how to get connected to spiritual life at Middlebury!  We’re looking forward to welcoming new Febs at our virtual Student Activities Fair table, on Friday, March 5, at 4:00 pm.  Here’s the link to our Zoom room; be sure to use password 810820.

The Scott Center is the hub of spiritual life on campus. It’s the place where students gather to explore big questions, celebrate together, find time to reflect, and enjoy social time with other students from all walks of life. This ranges from students who do not identify religiously at all, finding the Scott Center to be a radically hospitable and relaxing place to be, to students who are hoping to delve deeply into one or more spiritual traditions while at college.

Everyone is welcome!

There’s an invitation in your inbox.

If we can help make this semester a smooth transition and these years a successful and fulfilling part of your life’s journey, please do not hesitate to let us know. Please give us a call at (802) 443-5626.
