The mission of Middlebury Plus is to create a supportive community for individuals both before and after they take time away from the traditional 4 year path through higher education. We aim to act as a resource for both prospective and current Middlebury undergraduates in order to demonstrate to students that college can wait. Through these actions, we hope to change the perception of what it means to take time awayfrom college.
Who are we?
A group of Midd Kids who love adventure, value experience, and enjoy sharing stories, tips, tricks, and advice. We decided to come together to form a community after each of us had amazing adventures during our time off. So here we are to form a community, impart some wisdom, and have a jolly good time!
Want to join our ranks?
Well, good. You've come to the right place. This website is a tool created by a bunch of midd kids who wanted to make a lot of cool resources easily accessible for people just like you. Check it out, there's a lot to see. And when you're finished looking, there's a lot out there to do.
Why take time off?
We have been taught that it is good and right to go directly from high school to college, and that we must finish that college education in 4 years. This is not true! Taking time off allows you to focus on yourself, and not on studying great figures in history, writers, and scientists.
