Using Dining Hall’s Table Tents for Student Outreach

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

What’s a fast, effective way to publicize your event to a diverse body of students? Table tents!

Table tents are the 5×7″ posters that sit on the tables in the dining halls. Middlebury College departments, centers, students organizations, etc can reserve the table tents for one week (Friday to Friday). The Office of Sustainability Integration manages the table tent reservations. Visit go/tabletent for more information.


Coming in January 2015 – A new process for table tents:

Step 1. Reserve the table tents

  • Email your reservation request with preferred dates to Kris Smith: kksmith@middlebury.edu
  • Table tents are put in on Friday afternoons and taken out on Friday mornings (we try to keep the switch to Fridays to make it simpler for Dining Services)

Step 2. Design your table tent announcement

  • Dimensions: 5in wide x 7in tall
  • Print the same announcement on both sides of paper.
  • All table tents must include the phrase “Printed on 100% recycled paper.”
  • Request your table tents to be printed on 100% recycled paper.

Step 3. Have your announcement approved.

Step 4. Print 130 copies of your table tent announcements.

  • Use heavy weight paper to prevent bleeding through to the other side

Step 5. Drop off your table tents at the Office of Sustainability Integration in the Franklin Environmental Center at Hillcrest (Room 109) by 9am on the first day of your reservation.

  • You will receive a reminder email from Kristin Smith about your reservation
  • Bring your table tents to the Office of Sustainability Integration by 9:00 a.m. on the first day of your reservation (feel free to bring table tents a day or two earlier).
  • A student worker will put up and take down your table tents in all three dining halls.
  • If you want to receive your table tent back after the reservation, please let us know in advance. Otherwise, we will recycle them for you.

Middlebury women take a snowy ride up to Ripton, ca. 1940s

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

In this clip, members of the Women’s Forum of Middlebury College load up holiday gifts into a truck parked behind Forrest Hall, en route to the Meeting House in Ripton, VT. Upon their arrival in Ripton, local children run (and slide, trudge, and sled) to meet them. The Middlebury women, joined by a costumed Santa, distribute their holiday gifts.

Established in 1937, the Women’s Forum was itially organized to further interest in economic, political, and social issues of the day. In 1944 the group merged with the Student Action Assembly to focus on social and service work. This clip dates likely dates from the early to mid 1940’s.

Happy holidays from Special Collections & Archives.
