Tour Guide

Tori's friend Audrey explains the Commons system at Middlebury. The summer before an incoming freshman's first semester, they choose a First-Year Seminar, which is a required class and can cover all kinds of different subjects. From there, those seminars are then affiliated with a particular commons: Atwater, Brainerd, Cook, Ross, or Wannacott. They each are housed in particular first year dorms. That way, you can have a close community of people you not only take classes with, but live with as well.
