“The Student Symposium was one of my favorite days of the year. Presenting my work was very rewarding, but the day was great because of the quality of everyone’s work and presentation. Students at Middlebury work hard, and the Symposium is an amazing way to celebrate achievements and also gain essential presentation skills.”
