We can't keep our hands off each other! Most guys here have a sculpted body, and the girls here are fit with pretty faces. Although the majority of the people here are white and preppy looking, that doesn't define who they are as a person. We also have quite a decent number of internationals, and it seems like we've gotten the best of all over the world.
Everyone here is down to earth, but the umbrella characteristic is that we're all friendly and genuinely nice. Going back to the real world is always terrifying because you get reminded that not everyone in the world is physically beautiful or hot, while simultaneously being very clever with a unique yet nice personality.

Fantastic If You Like What's Here – ...otherwise it could get a bit boring. Middlebury is a small town but if you are interested in any outdoor activities (running, skiing, biking, snowshoeing, rock climbing, hiking, etc) there is lots to do! Middlebury as a town has a number of stores and everything you need is within walking or biking distance. For more, Burlington is only a 40 minute drive and has a lot more options. As a close knit, rural community, Middlebury is completely safe and friendly towards the college, which provides a good portion of its population.

The athletic facilities on campus are amazing! They just opened a new field house this past fall (2014). If you're not a varsity athlete you are doing something athletic - club, intramural, hiking, skiing, staying fit. It can be a bit intimidating. The huge presence of athletes on campus does create exclusivity. Overall, it is extremely easy to stay active here.
