This week, March 18 – 22, the College Book Store  will be returning all unsold used textbooks.

We need to begin the process of returning unsold textbooks to suppliers. Please purchase or rent any books you need for the remainder of the Spring 2013 term before they become unavailable.

If circumstances compel you to delay a purchase or rental further, please let the Book Store staff know so we can attempt to accommodate your needs.

Next week, March 25 – 29  (Spring Break ), we will begin  to return new textbooks for classes which use only one main text. 

Shortly after Spring Break we will start returning all remaining new textbooks.

Summer Student Employment

Students interested in securing a job on campus this summer, please read ALL the information on the Student Employment Office (SEO) Website at http://www.middlebury.edu/offices/business/seo/summer.

Here are a few high-lights:

How to apply for a Job

Jobs will be posted on the SEO website.  Students will need to create an account through the online system if they haven’t already.  It is recommended to set up your account NOW so you will be ready to apply for jobs as they become available.   https://middlebury.peopleadmin.com/

All students hired to work for Middlebury during the summer must submit a Summer Student Employment and Housing Agreement to SEO by April 19th.  Forms are available on the SEO website and at the Student Employment Office in the Service Building.

Students that have not worked on campus before and do not have a blue employment card will need to complete employment forms at SEO.  Click on ‘Employment Eligibility’ on the website for additional information: http://www.middlebury.edu/offices/business/seo/eligibility.

All summer jobs must conclude by August 17th, the end of Language Schools. Job extensions previously approved by the Student Employment Office are the only exceptions (these will be noted on the job posting).

To be eligible for on campus housing students must be employed by Middlebury College and working at least 30 hours per week.

Weekly Costs for Summer Student Employees living on campus:

On campus housing is $50 per week and covers housing and activities fees. Summer Student Employees will be housed in Stewart and Starr and will be assigned a room based on availability. The summer meal plan is $50 per week from June 10 through August 17 and includes breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday through Friday and brunch and dinner on the weekend. All meals will be served in Proctor Redfield. Students living on campus when a meal plan is not offered (before reunion and after Language School commencement) are expected to supply their own meals.

[Note: 2013 graduates may NOT work in a student position and may NOT live in student housing.  Please click on job seekers on the College’s home page to see available staff opportunities.]

Marjorie Lamberti Faculty Appreciation Award – nominations requested

Categories: For Students

Dear Students,

I am writing to ask for your nominations for the Marjorie Lamberti Faculty Appreciation Award.  This award is given annually to a Middlebury College faculty member who, following the example set by Professor Lamberti, demonstrates excellence and dedication in teaching.  The Student Government Association initiated a faculty appreciation award as an opportunity “for the College community to reflect on what makes an inspiring teacher, to recall the many gratifications of being a teacher at Middlebury, and to say to the award recipient and other deserving faculty members ‘we value what you do.'”

Marjorie Lamberti taught in the History Department from 1964 to 2002.  She was a legendary teacher, specializing in modern European History.  She is the author of a number of influential books and articles, including Jewish Activism in Imperial Germany: The Struggle for Civil Equality (1978) and The Politics of Education: Teachers and School Reform in Weimar Germany (2002).  As the Charles A. Dana Professor Emerita, she is still an active member of our community.

In Professor Lamberti’s words, “this award honors faculty members who have demonstrated excellence in teaching (be it lecture course, seminar, or laboratory) and dedication by giving time, energy, and effective effort in encouraging and supporting students in their search for knowledge and in their intellectual development inside and outside the classroom.”

All Middlebury College faculty are eligible for nomination.  Students are asked to submit their nominations to the office of the Dean of the Faculty by e-mail.  The nomination should include the name of the nominating student, the name of the nominated faculty member, and a statement about why the instructor is deserving of this honor.

Nominations are due no later than Friday, March 23rd.  A selection committee of students will review the nominations and choose the recipient, who will be honored at an awards ceremony on a date to be announced shortly.  Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge the important work of the faculty at Middlebury.


Jim Ralph

Dean of the Faculty



M Gallery Call for Submissions

Categories: For Students, Student Activities

M Gallery is accepting submissions

  • Are you an artist?
  • Do you love the arts?
  • Do you dislike art and want to talk to someone about it?

Submissions can range from an idea for an exhibition to your own specific work. M Gallery is here to support you as a student artist in whatever capacity we can. We’ve had students come to us with an idea and then curate it and artists curate their own shows. We feature all forms and media of art whether painting, sculpture, dance, theatre, or something you’ve just invented!

M gallery is also always looking for people to help out in the gallery’s operation. If you are a social media fiend, enjoy painting walls, are a casual blogger, or just like sitting in galleries we’d love to hear from you.

Got more questions? Check out the gallery’s website: http://themgallery.org/, come on by sometime, or send us an email at info@themgallery.org.
