Hello everyone. Glad you found your way to our wonderful Senior Fellow Blog, the best place to get all the insider tips from real Middlebury Seniors about everything from the best Chicken Parm-Pasta pairings to the latest updates on Gossip Squirrel.
My name is Nicolas, one of the eight Admissions Senior Fellows in the Admissions Office. But wait! What is an Admissions Senior Fellow?? you ask. We are a group of Seniors who love Middlebury so much we were selected to give Campus Information Sessions daily to all of our phenomenal visitors to the campus.
The Senior Fellow program began because we found that our Admissions Counselors were a bit busy getting out to amazing high schools all across the country in the fall and reading awesome apps in the spring, that at the end of the day we wanted to give them a much deserved break. So while during the summer you may have an Information Session with an Admissions Counselor, during the Fall you get to have one with one of the eight Senior Fellows! Each of our information sessions are different, although they all will combine lots of facts about the college with fond annecdotes from our time here.
And What is this blog I found myself on? Who is Gossip Squirrel? Well Gossip Squireel is the name of one of Midd’s most curious squirrels on campus and this blog is about all the personal, fun, exciting, anxious, scary, adventurous, funny experiences that comes with being a Senior at Middlebury! This blog is really our chance to take some times to reflect on our three years here, and give you some insights that we’ve learned along the way!
So welcome, sit back, relax, and we hope you enjoy all the stories to come!
