In hopes to increase Middlebury College admissions outreach to under-represented groups and geographic areas across the nation, students of the Student Government Association Institutional Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, in collaboration with the Admissions Office, established the Middlebury College Student Ambassador Program in the Fall of 2019. The mission of the Student Ambassador Program is to increase outreach and recruitment to high school students located in rural, low-income serving, and ethnically diverse areas.
In addition to school visits conducted by dedicated counselors in the Admissions Office, the Student Ambassador Program acts as another form of outreach that is done by current Middlebury College students. It is a program is designed by students for students. Middlebury College students will be trained, by the Admissions Office and the Student Ambassador Coordinators, to give information sessions to high school students in their hometowns and the surrounding area.
By having both current Middlebury students and admissions counselors visiting high schools, the amount of outreach will not only dramatically increase, but it will increase specifically in areas and demographics that are traditionally under-represented in higher education.
Students who would be a good fit for this position are passionate about a Middlebury education and about creating pathways to higher education for rural, low-income, and ethnically-diverse folks. They are also accepting applications from international students.
For nearly 60 years, the American Society of Magazine Editors has sponsored the Magazine Internship Program—a ten-week program for college students at magazines in New York and Washington. Since the program was founded in 1967, 2,000 college juniors and seniors have worked as ASME interns. Nearly 500 have gone on to successful careers in print and electronic journalism.
ASME interns have distinguished academic records and usually have extensive experience working on local magazines and newspapers as well as college publications. Only 10 percent of all Magazine Internship Program applicants are accepted.
ASME interns participate in a virtual three-day orientation program and learn the fundamentals of reporting, fact checking and copy editing. Over the course of the summer, ASME interns may attend special events in New York and Washington and meet regularly with top editors either in person or virtually.
ASME interns report, edit, fact-check and copy-edit for print and online publications. They may sometimes interview celebrities, attend press conferences, and work the red carpet—but most of the summer they do the un-glam but essential work of magazine journalism.
Interns assigned to magazines and websites in New York and Washington can expect to work in the editorial offices of their assigned publications in summer 2023. A limited number of virtual internships at magazines and websites outside New York and Washington will also be available.
The deadline to apply is December 1, 2022.

STEP SEVEN: Find a mentor. Mentors can provide unique insight into your field of interest and give great advice from someone who has previously been in your shoes.
The seventh step is to find a mentor. You are lucky that Middlebury College has a dedicated and active alumni network where alumni volunteer to mentor students.
MiddMentors matches alumni volunteers with students based on shared interests, affinities, life goals, and other criteria. Alumni share advice, insight, expertise, and support with students, who can join MiddMentors their sophomore year and can remain with the program through graduation. Participants drive the mentoring topics, which can range from navigating life at Middlebury to exploring careers and professional interests to pursuing a rewarding life path.
There is no “one size fits all” approach to mentoring. That’s why we encourage participants to take an approach that best leverages their expertise, availability, and goals. Along the way, we provide support through resources, recommended best practices, and advice.
STEP EIGHT: Practice for interviews. From planning what you will wear, to preparing responses to questions you will be asked—how you present yourself in your interview is within your control. Don’t try to wing it!
Interviews provide an opportunity to present your qualifications and experiences while relating them to the needs of an organization. An interview gives you a chance to confirm that the opportunity is a good fit for both you and the employer. Preparation and practice are keys to a successful interview.
Make sure you review professional dress guidelines, practice common interview questions, and study the types of interviews. You can learn all about interviews in our Interview Preparation Guide.
STEP NINE: Enjoy Podcasts, Career-related books, and more.
I know it seems like a lot to ask you to spend MORE time between classes and homework, papers and exams, but if you are feeling too busy, try to make a commitment to listen to a podcast that will help with your growth for five minutes a day. Small investments in yourself do add up, even if only 5 minutes per day.
