Now more than 200 years old, Middlebury College was founded in 1800 and is a small, independent liberal arts college. Its enrollment of a little more than 2,000 full-time undergraduates is derived from a competitive admissions process.
There are 44 areas from which to select a major and approximately 170 combinations through joint, double or interdisciplinary majors. Forty percent of Middlebury students study combined majors.
Middlebury is a residential college. Only about six percent of undergraduates are from Vermont. More than three quarters of the students graduate in four years.
About half the students at Middlebury participate in athletics through involvement in club, intramural or varsity sports.
