Campus Visit Notes for Middlebury College
The town is a near-picture-perfect small Vermont town with a few thousand residents, but is quite boring, unless you like to ski or bicycle. There are a couple restaurants and an abundance of craft stores, but nothing else that really draws interest. There are no major cities in the area, making the campus feel quite isolated. However, the campus itself is beautiful, especially in the way that the buildings all pick up the local stone or marble architecture. There are views of mountains in every direction, and immense open spaces throughout the campus. But the campus is a bit spread out - students probably ski to class - and while the place is serene, there is little to be said about its "campus life."
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
Cheaper hotels are available in the ugly strip malls surrounding the town.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
I sampled several area eateries and none were particularly memorable.
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Free municipal parking is abundant. The town is small enough to be traversed entirely by foot.
