Jia Jiang spoke in Wilson Hall on March 22 in an event organized by MCAB Speakers Committee.
The Campus calls upon [the SGA] to find a solution that is both equitable among the club sports programs and fair in regards to all student activities.
Students gathered in Crossroads Cafe with Professors of Political Science Matthew Dickinson and Bertram Johnson to watch presidential primary results as a part of Super Tuesday on March 1. The event was co-organized by the College Democrats and Republicans.
Over February Break, the class of 2015.5 skied down the Ski Bowl to family and friends waiting below. The graduation was featured in the Wall Street Journal last week. After the graduation festivities were over, orientation leaders welcomed the class of 2019.5.
While the editors at The Campus applaud the freedom that the Feb program allows, we think that some are left overwhelmed by options or without funding to do what they want to do.
On Monday, Community Council voted down the installation of surveillance cameras. We at the Campus, however, see surveillance cameras as an effort to protect that community and trust, not destroy it.
Dear Frank, I’m graduating in May and have realized that a lot of the people I’m hanging out with aren’t really people I want to[…]
After an article in the Campus last week revealed that students could view their admissions files under FERPA, the College Admissions Office has been flooded with student requests to view their files.
Last Tuesday, representatives from Kirchoff Campus Properties, the Dean of Students Office and Facilities Services unveiled new plans for a long-awaited housing project.
It is only two weeks into Winter Term, and JusTalks has once again hit the ground running. Between their keynote speaker, Robin DiAngelo, and their main event, which drew over 100 first-years in its third year running.
After months of speculation, the College announced our 17th president on Tuesday — Dr. Laurie Patton, the current dean of the College of Arts & Sciences at Duke University. In last week’s editorial, we laid out the qualities we wished to see in our next president, and in all of these areas, Patton delivers.
We at the Campus commend Liebowitz and the administration for their willingness to engage and their openness to student input. This is a starting place for initiating substantial change.
Everyone is anxious on the first day of school. You walk into a new classroom, you scan the room in the hopes you know some people, you pray the syllabus is reasonable, then your professor walks in, starts to take roll and you settle into the swing of it.
It seems innocuous. An app where you can post something witty, watch it get up-voted and monitor your karma score change as people respond. But this seemingly harmless “fun” often comes at the expense of members of our community.
Sexual assault on college campuses is making headlines this month as Tufts was found noncompliant with Title IX and the Department of Education released a list of 55 schools currently under investigation.
If someone asked you if all six inhabited continents should be equally represented in our distribution requirements, what would you say? There is not much our editorial board agrees on, but on this point we agree.
Sepomana brought four bands to the McCullough Social Space, including Dan Deacon and the College’s own Thank God For Mississippi.
We fully support Taylor for President and encourage everyone to vote for him and to vote generally in the SGA elections. But what does it say about the SGA and about the student body that only one person is interested in running?
Do you have plans this summer? This stressful question resounds across campus far beyond the signs posted by the Center for Careers and Internships (CCI). As students scramble to pull together summer plans, post-graduation plans and funding proposals, many engage with the CCI or their resources for advice and opportunities.
What does $60,000 mean to you? Perhaps a couple new cars, a good chunk of a house, an annual salary in tech or finance for a recent grad or the rounded comprehensive fee at Middlebury College. In 2009, colleges like Middlebury were cresting the $50,000 mark; now five years later, we are approaching $60,000, a change that has been met largely with silence and indifference.
We must reevaluate how we at Middlebury view testing in the admissions process.
Sixty percent of our student body is involved in athletics, either at the club or varsity level. As such a large part of our school, Middlebury needs to utilize this arena to investigate and combat homophobia. As athletes make up such a large portion of the student body, they are in a unique position to lead the way in fighting homophobia.
This past week Bill Burger, vice president of communications, pondered these questions when soliciting feedback from students, faculty and the board of trustees on the direction of the college’s brand. Though there was copious talk about a new logo, a website overhaul and renaming, the current lack of diversity is still the biggest issue the College faces as it reevaluates its brand.
Joey Kizel has never shied away from the biggest names or the biggest games, especially when it comes to fellow All-American Aaron Toomey and the[…]
Self-proctored exams are one of the most visible manifestations of our honor code. Our professors hand out the exams, answer questions, and then retreat to their offices, coming back only occasionally to check in and make sure everything is ok. For the Economics department, this norm may be changing.
If before this issue of the Campus hit the stands, you were to walk up to a student in Proctor and ask them what they think about the new dining swipe system coming soon, most would look back at you puzzled. “What swipe system?”
If you had sex education in high school, chances are you were a pimply fourteen year old who was too embarrassed to pay attention or absorb any information. Most of what you learned was probably heteronormative and geared towards basic pregnancy and STI prevention — either abstain or, if you must, use a condom. All other information you gleaned about sex came from side conversations in math class, parties and gossip in the bus on the way to soccer games.
You cannot avoid them as you walk around campus. The black posters with white writing that reads, “It Happens Here” plaster every door in the Proctor entryway, line the glass on your way into Ross, sit on all the tables in Atwater and coat the walls of the mail center.
The New Year always provides an opportunity for reflection. While BuzzFeed is littered with lists looking back at “14 Animals who Melted your Heart in 2013” and “33 Times Joseph Gordon-Levitt Charmed your Pants Off in 2013,” we have decided to look forward to 2014, with these six headlines we would love to see in the next year.
Upon entering the room where Professor Amy Wax was scheduled to speak, the first thing many people noticed were brightly colored signs with a single word written on it: racist. Some students brought these signs in anticipation of a heated lecture, in part due to hype created both by middbeat and by other students on campus.
Unpaid internships have become a nearly ubiquitous feature of the modern economy. For many students, they offer the opportunity to explore their field of interest before later attempting to find a paid job.
This four-week haven from the crush of a real semester’s workload is allegedly an opportunity for students to capitalize on their decision to come all the way out to beautiful nowhere. But with a number of students left out in the cold to fulfill important requirements due to dubious course credit policies and a shortage of crucial classes, is this magical month all that the Admissions department dresses it up to be?
In a classroom packed with people sitting on the windowsills, students, faculty and administrators gathered on Monday to engage in an honest dialogue unpacking the controversy surrounding Chance the Rapper’s performance Saturday night.
Earlier this semester, a Middlebury student found a note threatening violence and sexual assault against her on the basis of her sexual orientation taped to her door. Now, just weeks later, the College prepares to welcome Chance the Rapper.
We owe much of what we enjoy here to the decisions and guidance of the Board of Trustees. But considering how much this group impacts us every day, how well do we really understand the board?
Middlebury College likes to drink. Not all of us, certainly, but it is no secret that the collective BAC of this campus rises substantially when Friday night rolls around. We are not unique in this regard – drinking is an endemic part of college culture nationwide. But in the interest of community safety, alcohol must be controlled and policies must be enforced.
We often discuss the need for more community engagement as a student body. We’ve devoted barrels of ink and hours of our time to panels, papers, and symposia. Yet all of that leaves us with little more than a general agreement that something needs to be done differently. We would like to suggest a concrete solution to this problem: the implementation of a Community Education (C.E.) credit to be completed by every student before graduation.
We’ve all been there. You’re sitting in class, and someone in front of you is watching the soccer game on his computer or browsing New York Times headlines.
As a close-knit liberal arts college tucked gently away in the bucolic Vermont countryside, it becomes easy to think of our actions and the scope of our influence as contained within a bubble. But in truth, our actions on campus reverberate far beyond our small community.
This academic year, there has arguably been no bigger issue on the minds of Middlebury students than divestment. The topic polarizes us at times. Some argue that as an institution with a pledged commitment to environmental and social justice, Middlebury should put its money where its mouth is. Divesting from fossil fuels won’t end their use, but it will take away some leverage from the giant — and environmentally-damaging — fossil fuel industry. Others point to possible disadvantages of divestment, citing the importance of maintaining a stable endowment.
About one year ago, the College launched a new site — ‘go/portal’ — in order to aggregate information about events and activities on campus. The initiative aimed to provide a single, comprehensive resource for students, many of who were tired of their inboxes being inundated daily with all-student emails from various clubs and organizations. One year later, we ask ourselves how successful ‘go/portal’ has been, and how we as students can communicate more effectively with each other and with the College itself.
In this course we will examine the history, meanings, and realities of disability in the United States. We will analyze the social, political, economic, environmental[…]

Calling all cultures! If you want to graduate from Middlebury, you have to meet some academic distribution requirements. Many of us sweat and struggle, searching for that second college writing class. Many of us pull a fist-pump when we discover that we may skip one of the eight disciplinary categories (this writer won’t take science). But what about the third academic requirement? The Cultures and Civilizations Requirement (CCR).

Alcohol and sex. They’re probably the two biggest conversation topics at Sunday brunch in Proctor, and the most interesting stories involve both of them. The Health Center, and the administration in general, are obligated to stress that sex and alcohol don’t mix — for good reason, considering sexual assault statistics on college campuses — but despite the warnings and Jyoti Daniere’s attempts to start a student dating movement, the sexually active Middlebury student’s night life seems to involve drunk sex with mere acquaintances.
