Sometimes a simple thank you just isn’t enough. Each year Middlebury’s annual fund team thinks of new ways to show appreciation for the generosity of donors, but this year they reached new heights. A week before finals they installed a giant gift box in the lobby of Davis Library. Adding to the mystery, signs around campus invited students to show up at the library at 10 p.m. on Wednesday during finals, for a study break. What happened next? You’ll have to watch the video to find out, but let’s just say we’ve never had so much fun saying thanks, and we hope donors to the annual fund will feel well-appreciated!
