What’s the Story?

You may have noticed the little orange decals on some of the doors and windows around campus over the past couple of months.

Or last spring, you might have hurried over a giant campus map on the floor of the Davis Library entrance.

So what’s the story?

It’s Murmur.

Murmur is a collection of personal audio stories from around campus. The recordings are casual and unscripted and told in a variety of voices, including students, faculty, staff, and alums. It’s a great way for people to get to know Middlebury in a more casual way. You could hear about “Playing Sardines” in Axinn. Or meeting a “Blind Date” at the Frisbee Dog by Munroe. Or crossing the “Frozen Tundra” that is Battell Beach in winter. Those are just a few of the Murmur stories you’ll hear.

And now we’ve launched the Murmur website, so you can hear the stories online even if you can’t get to campus.

But for those who are here, just look for the bright orange Murmur icons posted around campus, then call 802.443.2600 from your cell phone and enter the three-digit location extension to hear a 1–2 minute story.

And be sure to email us at murmur@middlebury.edu if you’ve got a story of your own to tell.

Happy listening!
