The Middlebury Seal: Here To Stay

By Guest Contributor

To the Editor:

In the two weeks since Middlebury announced its new identity system, I’ve heard from several students and alumni who said they were confused at first about one important point: the status and future of the Middlebury seal. As we have said in every statement about the new system, in the FAQs on the website, and in the video we produced, the seal is not going away. We will continue to use it on diplomas and in formal and ceremonial settings, as we have for more than two centuries.
