- If you are at all familiar with the late Minimalist artist Sol LeWitt, you know that he designed a number of temporary installations to be completed by others according to his instructions. A History of Art and Architecture class at Middlebury recently got in on the action for an installation in the College museum.
- About a year ago, a couple of students decided they wanted to reinvigorate the music scene at Middlebury. This week, the duo was invited to guest blog on “One Dean’s View,” updating the community on their work.
- Speaking of “One Dean’s View,” the blog’s author—Dean of the College and Chief Diversity Officer Shirley Collado—appears this week in The Chronicle of Higher Education, where she is lauded for her efforts to recruit minority scholars to liberal arts colleges.
- The College’s Sustainability Office has launched an energy literacy campaign on campus. Be forewarned: the campaign’s tumblr is fascinating—and will certainly be a time-suck for any curious individual.
- TEDx Middlebury takes place on Saturday at the Mahaney Center for the Arts, as a host of fascinating folks engage with the event’s theme “The Road Not Taken.”
- The NCAA skiing community has descended on Middlebury for the 2013 national championships, taking place at the Snow Bowl and Rikert through Saturday, March 9. Watch this space for an upcoming story capturing the scene on the mountain.
