As Sunday evening is coming to a close, here is a sneak peak of some things to enjoy tomorrow! Stop by the Gamut Room Monday, November 12 7:30-9 p.m. and grab some tasty and innovative culinary concoctions made by Annalise Carington ’15 and Jordan Collins ’15 for Local Food Night, or as they call it the Localmotive! I promise you won’t be disappointed, neither with the food nor the company, both are just lovely!

It’s official, the stir fry station in Proctor is permanent. As long as no problems arise and students are respectful of the woks and utensils, the new devices are here to stay. They are open for use (if you are willing to brave the line) daily from 4:30-7:30PM.
These woks are a recent addition to a dining hall that already boasts a fleet of panini machines, the best salad bar in Addison County (with the exception of the co-op), and daily vegan bean and vegetable options, making it head and shoulders the dinner option of choice for foodies. Of course Atwater, with its reputation for using local produce (often from Middlebury’s own organic garden), offers solid competition at lunch.

The Grille recently announced that tonight (Friday 10/19), the Taco Truck All Star Junior will be joining us on campus to serve up fresh made tacos and burritos while you are out wandering campus and looking for that late night snack.
Chef Adam and the Taco Truck will be parked outside of Hepburn from 10:00pm- 2:00am tonight, serving the best in street food tacos, so come out and enjoy Midd’s introduction to the food truck phenomenon!
Today, I had the pleasure of eating at Weybridge for one of their nightly dinners (yes, they post their menus too!). Afterwards, like any responsible student, I checked my Facebook before beginning my homework, only to find a flurry of “Meatless Monday” status updates. I then checked my email and soon began to understand what they were talking about.
With relatively little notice (Director of Dining, Matthew Biette, sent an all-student email explaining “LessMeat Mondays” at 3:56pm today), students learned that this evening they would be subject to a “trial run of LessMeat Monday… an environmental initiative brought to you by a group of students in Environmental economics,” in which an additional vegetarian dish would replace a meat dish.
Placated by the knowledge that there still would be a meat dish, I soon reached the next line: “While we encourage all students to choose the environmentally friendly vegetarian option, we also respect the right of each student to eat meat.”
Freshly thinking about hierarchies and binaries, thanks to my women and gender studies course, I could understand how this email sparked people’s interest. It clearly placed the “environmentally friendly vegetarian option” in a greater position than that of ‘meat eaters’ whose ‘rights must be respected.’ Is the freedom to eat what I want to eat a right I should be worried about? I didn’t think so, but now I’m slightly confused. Read more
Whenever the SGA is mentioned here at Middlebury, it always seems to solicit a rather unusual response: “Wait we have one?!” The follow up questions come in close for second and third: “What does it do? That’s just for PoliSci Majors right?”
As a resident SGA Senior Senator, I’d like to clarify a few things. First, we have an SGA. Second, the SGA does (or can and should do lots of things). And third, SGA is not just for PoliSci majors (take it from me, a former neuroscience, literary studies, and now finally history major).
From my approximate eight weeks in office, I’d love to quickly provide an understanding of what I’ve learned the SGA does, why you should care, and how you should get involved.
What does SGA do? SGA serves as the central voice of the student body. Students’ dreams, hopes, fears, and all types of emotions and desires should be the concern and soul of the SGA.
The SGA, feasibly, can do two things:
