Midd profs book McGrory Klyza Trombulak_2244.JPG

MIDDLEBURY — Eighteen years ago, Middlebury College biology and environmental studies professor Stephen Trombulak bemoaned the fact that there wasn’t a book that aptly described the ecological history of Vermont and how humans have affected it.

Across campus, political science and environmental studies professor Christopher McGrory Klyza fretted that he didn’t have a Vermont-relevant text to assign the students in his first-year seminar.

Young man from Syria brings expertise on the flute to college in Middlebury

Posted on February 19, 2015 |

Boghos6624 .jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Ask Boghos Taslakjian how he came to play the flute, and he becomes momentarily flustered. “It’s confusing, even for me,” says the 19-year-old Middlebury College sophomore from Syria.

That’s because Taslakjian has been a musician since before he can remember. According to what his mother says, he began his training on the recorder at age 4, because the flute was too large for him to handle; he graduated to the flute a year later, at the ripe old age of 5.

MIDDLEBURY — The collections of the Middlebury College Museum of Art showcase thousands of years of human creativity, from ancient Greek vases to classic Roman sculptures, old Chinese scrolls to European and American paintings from throughout the centuries.

But starting this week, the museum’s second floor will host art with a strictly modern inspiration: the urban landscape. A new exhibit, called “Outside In: Art of the Street,” will present the work of 16 street artists who use their art to encourage political or social change.

Karl Lindholm: Vermont's Schoolmaster is in the Hall of Fame

Posted on February 4, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm



I was skeptical.

When I first heard that Middlebury College was considering an Athletic Hall of Fame, I had reservations.

A hall of fame can be a can of worms, producing as much discord as concord, as much dismay at who’s not included as celebration of who gets in.

Halls of fame are by their very nature exclusive. We preach in schools the joy of competition and the benefits of participation, but we know the most highly accomplished are not always the most highly dedicated.
