These casual 30-45 minute sessions will feature some basic information about Middlebury (and sometimes a guest appearance from a current student) and provide students with a space to ask questions about Middlebury and the college application process as they would if we were meeting face to face at your schools.

“Join our Journey” and hear directly from Middebury seniors: Several times each week, we are offering opportunities for you to join our Senior Admissions Fellows as they reflect on their own inspiring journeys to and through Middlebury. Most of each session will be devoted to answering student questions. As a complement to these online sessions, we also suggest watching this recorded 30-minute informational presentation about Middlebury College. 

Watch a Wednesday Webinar: Covering a different topic each week, our weekly Wednesday Webinars feature admissions counselors, current students, alumni, staff, and faculty members who are happy to speak about their varied Middlebury experiences and answer questions from prospective students and their families.

Welcome to Coast to Coast, a joint travel partnership among Dartmouth College, Northwestern University, Princeton University, University of California-Berkeley, and Vanderbilt University. Because each of our institutions practices holistic admissions within a highly selective environment, we have partnered to offer insight into the seemingly complex admissions process. We hope you will join us for the program most convenient for you.
Please note, the Coast to Coast program is intended to be an introduction to each of our institutions, as well as a discussion on holistic admission, financial aid and admission in the time of COVID. The last portion of the program includes question and answer. For more specific information about our institutions, please visit our websites or arrange a virtual visit.
