Connect with Your Regional 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.
Take a Virtual Tour: Tour campus with our students, in either English or in Spanish. Students can also explore using our interactive virtual tour.
We look forward to connecting with your students, and hope they’ll take advantage of one or a few of these opportunities to get to know Middlebury.

There is a $10 fee to attend Maroon Fridays. These are similar to our former Spring Preview Days.
