Middlebury College students stand with Michael Brown

Posted on December 4, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



protest1541.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — More than 100 students, faculty and staff stood, silently, arms raised in front of Mead Chapel on the campus of Middlebury College Monday afternoon.

The time was 1:01 p.m., the same time of day that Michael Brown was shot dead by a police officer on Aug. 9 in Ferguson, Mo. The shooting of the 18-year-old black man reignited a national discussion on racism and police brutality, especially after a grand jury last week declined to bring charges against the officer, Darren Wilson.

Opinion: College can help the homeless

Posted on December 3, 2014 |
By Randy Kritkausky



I was struck by the juxtaposition of articles on housing in Middlebury in the Thursday, Nov. 27, edition of the Independent. Front-page articles focused on problems of homelessness. Page three reports on Middlebury College’s offer to begin selling some of its 70 homes at a 15 percent discount to faculty. The article on sale of Middlebury College owned homes raised the question of whether or not discounted sales would depress housing market prices.

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury College this month announced a plan to sell a number of residential homes it owns to faculty at a discounted rate, while real estate professionals disagree over whether the prospective sales could depress home values in town.

The college said the initiative is part of an effort to help new faculty members find suitable, affordable housing close to campus. Presently, the college rents out the houses to faculty.

Bread Loaf Campus to be conserved forever

By Addison Independent



MIDDLEBURY — Nearly a century ago, the visionary Vermont environmentalist Joseph Battell bequeathed to Middlebury College the large tract of land that is home to the Bread Loaf campus. Bordering the Green Mountain National Forest and encompassing numerous areas of ecological and natural interest, the Bread Loaf campus and surrounding forests have long provided the Middlebury community with spaces for outdoor recreation and environmental education.

Julia Sprague at Virgil vigil by Todd Balfour.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Poetry readings generally last one hour — not even the most devoted versaholic is expected to sit still any longer. So when I heard that the Middlebury College Department of Classics had organized a three-day marathon reading of a single poem, Virgil’s epic The Aeneid, I had to see for myself.

Middlebury College students' behavior irks neighbors

Posted on October 23, 2014 |
By Zach Despart



MIDDLEBURY — More than a dozen Middlebury residents have raised concerns about a pattern of raucous behavior by Middlebury College students that they say keeps them up at night and lowers their quality of life.

The residents, in a meeting with Middlebury College administrators Wednesday morning, said this past weekend’s homecoming celebrations at the school — and particularly at off-campus homes of students — exacerbated an ongoing problem.

MIDDLEBURY — As a 17-year-old senior at Middlebury Union High School, Hannah Quinn attempted suicide. No one knew what had happened, and for two years she did not share her ordeal with friends or family.

Hospital, college on guard for Ebola

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury is a long way from West Africa or even Dallas, Texas, where the deadly Ebola virus has gained a toehold and claimed victims.

But with the town of Middlebury and Middlebury College being popular destinations for international travelers, local health care providers and institutions are taking precautions to minimize the chances of Ebola making its way to Addison County, while also setting up protocols to ensure that any infected patient is segregated from the general population.
