The Campus Voice: President Elect Laurie L. Patton

By Jessica Cheung

“She just has this magnetism around her. She is energetic, charismatic and that came through when she walked in the door—bright eyed, very attentive. It was just a very genuine feel. She came to our process with her research done. She articulated what makes this place tick, what makes it so special in a way that a lot of people here have trouble articulating. It was pretty clear from the get-go that she was a top runner.” -Nick Mallchok ‘14.5 on the first time he interviewed Dr. Laurie Patton for the position of Middlebury College President
