Welcome Class of 2027!

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!

We can’t wait to meet you and hope you can come to our Fall 2023 Orientation events; see below for a complete list.  Click here to see a walking map to our home at 46 South St.

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.  

We look forward to meeting you and being a part of your life at Middlebury College.

Peace and Blessings,

Ellen McKay Jewett, Program Coordinator
