Middlebury just celebrated its 212th commencement, welcoming the class of 2013 to the alumni family. Though forced inside after days of pounding wind and rain, the ceremony was warm and festive. International best-selling author Jonathan Safran Foer delivered a gripping talk to the 557 graduates, and student speaker Bronwyn Oatley spoke with humor and insight to her classmates. Full coverage, including more photos and video, is available on the college web site. But to whet your appetite, here’s a short video by Brendan Mahoney ’11, which captures the excitement, emotion and energy of a day packed with traditions. Enjoy!
