Middlebury College

Arriving at Middlebury College, I found that students from the UWC constituted the largest group of international students on the campus. This cushioned my first few weeks in the United States, but it had the consequence that other students often felt alienated and thought of the UWC students as an elitist group. Though eternally grateful to the UWC and the UWC Davis Scholar Program, I have found that like-mindedness and excellence spur from a variety of different sources.
