Looking for a dedicated (but informal) mentor to help you explore longer-term goals, develop professional competencies, or explore what it means to navigate life at Middlebury?
Then join MiddMentors! With MiddMentors, you get to build a connection with an alumni mentor matched to your goals and objectives.
Our volunteer alumni mentors come from all over the globe, and represent an incredible diversity of experiences and backgrounds. Select from Cirque du Soleil aerialists, startup founders, volcanologists, corporate executives, award-winning writers, surgeons and psychologists, educators, human rights attorneys, coders, athletes, bankers and traders, veterinarians, Zen practitioners, to name a few…
After you’re paired with your mentor, you’ll embark on monthly conversations, guided by a flexible curriculum. Along the way, we support you with CCI advising appointments, resource pages, and email consults.
This is a developmental experience–not an evaluative one. In exchange for a small amount of prep, you get access to stellar advice and viewpoints from an alum who has already walked the path you’re hoping to take.

PRINCETON IN LATIN AMERICA: UPDATE
As colleges and universities prepare for the return to campus for a new academic year, we are sharing an important update regarding our application and placement cycles. PiLA will NOT hold a standard application cycle this fall and instead will focus on working with recent deferred finalists that remain interested and available to engage in our placement process, with the goal that as many deferred finalists as possible are matched with potential partners and will be able to interview (virtually) for tentative placements for 2022-2023. If, after working with finalists deferred from the Spring 2021 and Spring 2020 finalist pools, we determine that we will still need new applicants to fill available placements, it is possible we will open an abbreviated application cycle in early 2022. Any updates concerning an off-cycle application process, if occurring, will be posted on our website in early 2022.
