School of the Environment Accepting Applications

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Did you know that your college-age son or daughter could attend the Middlebury School of the Environment this summer and earn 9 credit hours? Need-based grants are available.

The School of the Environment offers an introductory and advanced track. The introductory track is open to any college undergraduate and no previous college-level coursework is necessary. The advanced track is open to rising juniors and seniors from any undergraduate institution who have engaged in some study of the environment and who have completed at least one college-level lab course.

Students enrolling in the session (June 19 to July 31, 2015) will take three integrated courses. Introductory track courses include a systems-thinking practicum, introduction to environmental analysis, and an elective. Advanced track courses include a skills-based sustainability practicum, understanding place, and an elective. The three courses will share connecting themes, tools, strategies and faculty, as well as mentors, visiting scholars and practitioners.

An emphasis will be on linking skills associated with leadership and innovative problem-solving with a solid grounding in the principles and concepts of environmental studies.

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.
