Justice. Just Is. Just Us?

The banner brandished by the dozens of students marching down Storrs Walk last Monday read “Divestment is a tactic; justice is the goal.” There’s often a good deal of talk about the j-word in any number of settings — legal, environmental, social, economic, etc. — and I think more often than...

‘They Asked Me Where I Get This Stuff, I Told Them I Don’t Know’

By Michelle Smoler

In my past columns, I’ve discussed the value of a liberal arts education in its ability to endow us with critical-thinking and writing skills — everything a future graduate needs to take the world by a storm. However, I am now of the opinion that there is a crucial gap in our education. This last...

The Legacy of ‘Old Middlebury’

By Fritz Parker

March 13, 2013

At a family party over the holiday break, I got to talking to a friend of my parents, a man in his 50s who graduated from Middlebury in the early 80s. In our conversation we covered all the basics of typical college small-talk – majors, abroad plans, clubs, you know the drill – but kept returning...

Was my last article a little too Eat Pray Love-y?  I feel like my last article was a little too Eat Pray Love-y. I hope you can bear with me if any more sentimental-study-abroad-blog, gag-if-I-see-one-more-Instagram-of-your-cultural-experience moments arise. This time I hope I can kick that association...

Divestment is No Excuse for Inaction

By Zach Drennen

February 20, 2013

It became clear in just a few days here over J-term that the issue of divestment has captured the imagination of the Middlebury population. In a school full of aspiring investors, targeting the endowment is a clever approach, and divestment is not a bad idea. It is the height of hypocrisy to rail against...

The Middle East and the Middle Bury

By Middlebury Campus

I arrived at Middlebury College almost four years ago. I had just spent my senior year of high school in Israel, hiking, washing dishes, attending rallies, exploring cities, learning another language and another way of being. Arriving in Vermont, I was skeptical as to how much I could learn about the...

Sometimes the most fruitful forums are those that yield no concrete solutions. The forum in McCullough this past Tuesday addressed alcohol use and dorm damage through a faculty-student discussion in an attempt to address some recurrent issues. The quality and breadth of the dialogue is both promising...

“When men have realized that time has upset many fighting faiths,” Justice Holmes states in his dissent to the court opinion in United States v. Abrams, “they may come to believe even more than they believe the very foundations of their own conduct that the ultimate good desired is better reached...

Hello, Ladies. Look at the picture in this column. Now back to your man. Now back at the picture. Now back to… actually just keep looking at the picture. At this moment, you are looking at your future, nay, your destiny. You see the man your man could be. Not bad, huh? Before you respond, let me j...

Death of a symbol: Osama Bin Laden – Hafsa Ahmad

By Middlebury Campus

May 5, 2011

September 11, 2001 is hardly a blur. I vividly remember the confusion and the chaos that ensued after school was released early and our mosque shut down. The subsequent days were the most trying of our lives. The pain of losing a dear friend of our family, our “Uncle” Tariq Amanullah (Allah Yarhamhu/May...
