The Spring Student Symposium Planning Committee

…the Symposium encapsulates Middlebury at its best. It was valuable for me to prepare and then present in a professional setting. An equally valuable component of the Symposium is how it celebrates students work. I am grateful that Middlebury has put time, energy and thought into a creating a day that celebrates all that goes on here– much of which could go unseen and unheard. — 2014 Symposium Participant
