Overall, I look to this expansion as a very good sign of things to come for Middlebury College and its commitment to intentionally recruiting strong students of color to attend this institution. For Middlebury College to make this kind of commitment is a testament to the things that are important to this school, but it is also a testament to the Posse Foundation and all that it strives to do as well.
I cannot speak to how the two communities (Posse New York City and Posse Chicago) will interact while on campus, but I figure the more the merrier. I think it will be an important time for everyone to keep their egos in check and revel in the fact that the Posse family is growing. I am not suggesting that everyone in Posse needs to be the best of friends, but we have to respect everyone in the community for the simple fact that we are all Posse Scholars.
