Ah, you ask, what could these three things possibly have in common?
They are all offering winter term internships for Middlebury students! (The Christian Science Monitor has also probably written about both the Green Chemistry Program and Democracy for America, but that’s beside the point).
So riddle me this: what do the New England Review, Roots for Health and Senator Patrick Leahy have in common?

Notice the weather getting a bit chillier? Well don’t worry, it’s not time for winter just yet.
But it is time to start thinking about Winter Term internships. You’ve taken some classes, joined the crew team and started writing for Midd Geographic. What’s left on your Middlebury bucket list? Doing an internship, of course! Internships are a great way to explore a career field that interests you and gain some concrete experience and skills for that not-so-distant day when you enter the real world and find a job. Winter Term offers a unique chance to take on an internship for four weeks, either in the Middlebury area or abroad.

Middlebury’s J-term courses never fail to offer an amazing array of academic endeavors. Among them is “The American Musical in Performance,” a monumental joint effort by Middlebury’s Town Hall Theater and the College’s music department, culminating in a fully mounted production at Town Hall Theater — just three weeks after the start of rehearsals.
This year’s show was Hairspray, a cartoonish yet deeply moving chronicle of the youth-driven integration of an American Bandstand-style television program in the early ‘60s. The collaborative company of actors, musicians, choreographers, and staff included 45 students, as well as faculty and community members—and more than a handful had never been involved with a musical before! That’s the beauty of it all, according to director Doug Anderson, who teaches in the music department as well as being executive director of Town Hall Theater.
MiddMag went behind the scenes—literally—for a closer look at how it all came to be.
