It was a rainy Saturday so our family went down to middle bury college to see its art museum. I think we were all surprised at how small it was (the Colby art museum in Maine in contrast is huge and high quality overall). This one had a smattering of pieces from different periods. One current exhibit of photos of... More

Large beautiful historic buildings and lovely grounds. Much marble work everywhere. Large estate homes which have either be purchased or bequeathed to the college are well maintained. The chapel at the top of the hill is well worth the climb!

You don't have to know anybody, you don't have to have a family member involved here, if in Middlebury just simply cruise this beautiful campus. Beautiful buildings and large green grass lawn area's. It's part of Middlebury but still has a country feel, just a great setting!

Middlebury's ranking and reputation speak for themselves. It is a fabulous school. I have seen many campus locations and very few can compete with the local environment (small town, walking trails around town, rolling hills with buildings well placed) and with the larger environment with views of the Green Mountains and Adirondacks. It doesn't get better.

We didn't get out as we were just driving through, but the campus was just beautiful. The buildings look to be very well maintained, it has an open feel, and if my son chose to go here down the road (he's only 11 at this point!) I would not be disappointed!

Loved the campus, but it's a bit too rural for my daughter. BEAUTIFUL drive from Dartmouth to Middlebury!
