On April 12, Bennington College participated in Middle School Access Day, an event designed to give local middle school students a preview of college opportunities.
Bennington College, along with Community College of Vermont and Southern Vermont College, hosted seventh grade students from Mount Anthony Union Middle School.
President Mariko Silver and Director of CAPA Susan Sgorbati greeted the students as they arrived at campus. The middle schoolers then split up into smaller groups and were given guided campus tours by Bennington admissions interns.
The Bennington Banner covered the event.
One student summed up the day fairly well when they wrote, "There is more to school than I thought!"
