Middlebury is on the highest tier of renown for US colleges. Though it may not have the breadth of name recognition as some Ivy league universities, employers in the fields in which a Middlebury education excels are sure to hold it in high regard.

All of my encounters with professors have been wonderful--I love talking to them after class and they are more than willing to help on papers and assignments or just explore the nuances of what's been discussed in class. Regarding course variety, I've been enthused about virtually every class I've taken thus far. If you are a curious person, you will seldom find yourself in a boring or uninteresting course.
