The Friends of International Students (FIS) host program recruiting and matching process for the recently admitted Class of 2022 has begun! The Class of 2022 will include more than 70 international students, including some U.S. students who have lived abroad and international exchange students. Please contact us if you are interested in hosting in the fall and spread the word in our community.
International Student & Scholar Services will hold a series of information meetings about the program throughout the summer on the 2nd floor of the Service Building. We ask that new hosts attend a meeting so that we can meet them and share more information about the program. If you are an experienced host, you are welcome to join us as your stories and insights are vital to friends who are new to FIS and trying to decide if they would be a good fit for the program.
Join us for our first host information meeting of the season,
Tuesday, July 10, 2018, 12:30-1:30 p.m.
To register for our meeting, please email ISSS at email@example.com (subject line: FIS Host Program) or call us at 802.443.5858. Feel free to bring your lunch.
You can learn more about the FIS Host Program on our website at: http://www.middlebury.edu/international/isss/fis .
Please share this information with friends and family who do not work at the College.
We invite all who are interested to become a part of this wonderful program!
We look forward to hearing from you!

Mittelman Observatory and Middlebury Physics will again host stargazing open house nights this summer. These Observatory events are scheduled for Wednesday evenings, June 27, July 18, July 25, August 1, and August 8, from 9:00 PM until 10:30 PM, weather permitting.
Jupiter and Saturn will be in the evening sky on many of these dates. A variety of interesting stars, star clusters, and nebulae will also be visible through the Observatory’s telescopes. The Observatory includes a 24-inch telescope in a dome and smaller telescopes on the roof.
Observatory open house nights are free and open to the public. As these are minimal language events, they are also appropriate for Language Schools students. These events will take place only if the sky is expected to be mostly clear. Please check the Observatory web site at go/observatory or call the Observatory at 443-2266 after 7 PM on the evening of the event for weather status.
Please also consider taking a moment to view our new David Mittelman Astrophotography web site and our new Mittelman Observatory Weather Station web site.
