Come learn from a representative all about their admissions process. All students welcome, all majors and class years, whether you’re applying next year or just planning ahead.
Connor Williams ’09 is currently pursuing a PhD in History and African American Studies at Yale. He is happy to share advice, experiences, and answer questions for students considering pursuing an advanced degree in the humanities. He hopes to demystify both the application process and the humanities grad school experience itself. In addition to discussing a PhD in the humanities, he’s also open to discussing post-doctorate employment prospects, including work in museums, private schools, and state educational offices (such as historical societies, state libraries, and so forth). Prior to Yale, Connor also taught for several years in private schools, and also earned an M.A. at Dartmouth. Open to all majors in any humanities field, and all class years welcome as you explore options for after graduation. Lunch of assorted sandwiches will be available.

More details and application information in Handshake here. Deadline is late October, but why wait?
The Department of State’s Attorneys and Sheriffs seeks justice in the prosecution of criminal offenses, child abuse and neglect cases, juvenile delinquencies, mental health proceedings and some other civil matters. Each State’s Attorney’s Office works collaboratively with law enforcement agencies, social service agencies, victims and members of the public to seek justice in the cases that are investigated and prosecuted within each county. Protecting and promoting public safety is a core function of the Department. Seeking justice is our paramount goal. The Department also ensures that every region of the state is served by a Special Investigation Unit.
This is a unique chance to see the inner-workings of a courtroom with a Midd alum. This opportunity will expose you to assisting the Law Clerks and Law Interns in Chambers with criminal and civil cases. You may be called upon to work on writing and research projects, as well as administrative tasks. You will have virtually daily opportunities to observe courtroom proceedings (criminal and civil) before Judge Burroughs and other judges and magistrate judges of the court.
Here is more information about Judge Burroughs for your information. Judge Burroughs received her J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Prior to joining the bench, Judge Burroughs was a partner in the Boston law firm of Nutter McClennen & Fish. Before entering private practice, she served in the Boston and Philadelphia offices of the United States Attorney’s Office. During her sixteen years as an Assistant United States Attorney, Judge Burroughs developed trial and investigation expertise in sophisticated white collar and economic crimes.
The Center for Careers and Internships and the Middlebury Professional Networks are partnering to provide a fully donor-funded “Student Innovation Trek” to the San Francisco Bay Area over February break.

This immersive “living and learning” experience will be organized around job-shadowing opportunities with alumni at companies like Tesla, Genentech, IDEO and more. The experience will also include reflection dinners and career conversations with other select alumni. Students will travel and live together as a cohort and attend an Innovation Summit as part of the experience.
