Hear about the Hunt? Middlebury’s annual J-term scavenger hunt came to an end this weekend, after three long days of crazy activities, art projects, and intense video editing. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out the challenges here. Here are some of the Huntmasters’ favorite videos, enjoy!
Hey everyone! Love Middblog? So do we!
As you may have noticed, this semester we have undergone a series of site renovations and are working on expanding our coverage to more events and activities at the college. With these developments in mind, we are asking our loyal readers to donate a few dollars to our MiddSTART project. We will use funds raised to finance an advertising campaign, pay for tickets to events for our writers to cover, and continue with site renovations.
Any amount you can contribute would be fantastic and with everyone together, hopefully we can reach our goals quickly. Because Middblog operates entirely independently of the college, we usually end up paying for upgrades and the like ourselves, so this would be a big improvement. Plus, we’ll write happy happy things about all of you donors on the blog.
See? Look how happy we are. Think of how much happier we could be...
MiddSTART is a relatively new program created by the Project for Creativity and Innovation. The program “helps students to find the funding they need to explore their interests through creative, entrepreneurial, and innovative projects, and it enables alumni and friends of the College to combine a number of gifts to support a project that particularly appeals to them.” These are projects that are typically not supported by traditional grants or funding structures.
Even though it is a relatively new project, MiddSTART has already helped fund a library in the Huruma slums of Nairobi, Kenya, a Children’s support home in Eldoret, Kenya, and a series of students scholarships at Middlebury. You can see all of the past and present projects here.
