Make sure to see the sculptures - there are a lot of outdoor sculptures around the campus, including a Robert Indiana LOVE, and the art museum has a very nice (and free guide).

If you are near Middlebury College you should stop by. It was larger than we expected and crawling with young people speaking every language you could think of - mostly French while we were there. Parking is easy - the historic buildings are beautiful and so are the newest of their facilities. We spent some time wandering the sciences building,... More

This is very much a great college experience, a quintessential New England town with a movie theater, shops and restaurants, add to the quality of life. And then if you want something more in the fall you can go a short distance out of town and observe Snow Geese in their migration

We've been to Bowdoin, Williams, Amherst, Bates, Colby, Tufts, Wesleyan--but the Middlebury campus is our favorite. Athletic fields, hockey rink, golf course, and new fieldhouse are close to the main quads. Take the campus tour but make time to visit the athletic facilities and arts centers on your own. Don't miss the chapel and Bicentennial Hall.

Well, we just drove through at night, but this is an incredible facility, one which I could have attended in my youth.

Had group tour of the college's art museum, permanent collection plus lovely temporary exhibits. Wide-ranging collection. Outdoor sculptures including Robert Indiana's iconic LOVE. Enjoyed sitting outside with beautiful vistas.

Unlike some of the other reviewers, I visited the campus to get a feel for the college itself, even if only very casually--not to partake in its museum or other on-campus attractions. We were lucky to be visiting during the summer, when some of the foreign language immersion programs were being offered, and, sure enough, encountered not only groups of... More

The main attraction for the culture-seeking traveller on the Middlebury campus is their art museum, housed in their fine and performing arts building on the southern border of the campus. The building itself is an interesting bit of postmodern architecture, and the interior is nicely festooned with worthy student work. The museum itself is smallish; it has a collection ranging...

Middlebury College is a beautiful college with an amazing campus and academics that are extremely well regarded. Middlebury has been ranked the #4 Liberal Arts College in the country for many years now. The town of Middlebury has a quaint downtown and numerous wonderful restaurants. This is a great area to visit!

Of course, Middlebury College is world-renowned for language study, but also has many other fine programs. It is famous for its Breadloaf School of English, its library collections of Robert Frost and Anne Sexton, and its interdisciplinary programs. Many, many famous intellectuals and writers have been guests for decades. If you are touring, please don't miss the magnificent Chateau on... More
