Connect with me: In lieu of in-person school visits and as a way to reduce the number of virtual school visits, we have created opportunities for students to connect with their regional admissions counselor. Please find your regional admissions counselor here and click on their name to see their available meeting times. Your counselor’s link may be useful to post in Naviance, or whatever software you may use to connect your students with colleges and universities. 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. You can find recordings of past webinars here.
Chat one-on-one: We are always more than happy to connect with students and/or counselors one-on-one via phone or a Zoom call. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if we can assist you in any way!
Maroon Fridays: These are face-to-face events that are academic-college specific. During a Friday on campus, students and parents will take a tour with a current student and learn about different aspects of campus life (academics, student involvement, financial aid, scholarships, admissions and much more)! There is a $10 fee to attend Maroon Fridays. These are similar to our former Spring Preview Days.
️ Campus Visits: Available most weekdays, your students can experience MSU on campus by meeting with an Admissions Counselor and taking a tour with a Roadrunner, an MSU student. They can pre-arrange a departmental meeting to tailor their experience more.
Virtual Visits: Do you have students who need an online option? We have virtual information sessions similar to what students would experience during a Campus Visit. Learn about MSU from an Admissions Counselor or a representative from your student's academic college.
However, if you have students who are already admitted to Mississippi State University, we encourage them to attend one of our Academic Insight events in February. These events are exclusive to admitted students and help them get familiar with their academic college and department (professors, current students, etc.).
