If you have visited the Admissions Office since September, you may have seen some of the thirteen new faces that have appeared on the scene – the 2010-2011 Senior Admissions Fellows are in! Check out the just-added profiles for Alhaji Jalloh, Becky Harper, Ben Weitz, Ben Wessel, myself (Casey Mahoney), Cloe Shasha, Coco Liu, Graham Egan, JJ Janikis, Megan Nesbeth, Melissa Segil, and Vince Blais.
What are we doing here?
So far this semester, we have been settling into the routines of helping with information sessions, working on office projects, putting together the fellows website, preparing for the Discover Middlebury program, and even squeezing in time for a BBQ on a Sunday afternoon not too long ago (snapshot above!).
In the grand scheme of things, though, what are we doing here? Like we’ve written on our senior fellows page on the admissions website:
As a group of 13 individuals in our final year at Middlebury, we bring diverse experiences from our college years here to provide prospective students and families with personalized perspectives on the admissions process and on life as Middlebury College students.
How do we plan on doing that? First, this blog provides us with a place to share with you snapshots of life at Midd: memories from our own college application processes, what our favorite classes have been, what we do around campus, what it’s like to go to school in Vermont.
Second, we will be available all year via email (addresses can be found on our profile pages) and will be in the office to answer questions, offer advice, and in general, help you figure out whether Middlebury is a place where you might want to apply – or attend!
We encourage you to post your questions, reactions, and comments here on the blog, too.
