The entire experience was not only unique, it was life changing! It opened my eyes and mind up to world I wasn't familiar with.

Academics:

The academics were a challenge however, it made me a more solid student especially in math and that is my most challenging subject. I was pushed and encouraged me to work hard, no give up and ask or help even when I wasn't totally sure I needed it. The thing I liked the most was the huge amount of support from staff and peers

Athletics:

1.) Describe the athletics at your school - what did you like most about it?

I was dorm proctor and it was the best experience I've had in my life as of yet. I also did some random volunteer work in a homeless shelter.

Dorm Life:

1.) Describe the dorm life in your school - what did you like most about it?
Dorm life was cool, my senior year I was dorm proctor, so I was in charge of a pretty cool group of freshman, it's cool being someone of influence and I take the role to heart

Dining:

We were giving 3 meals a day,and snack as well. We also had a "grill" selection hat we paid for out of pocket. The food was good, breakfast omelets were my favorite

Social and Town Life:

1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
The town is kind of small, quiet. It has a busy little town square with the commuter rail station and stores and food shops. I don't know much about the surrounding area except that there's a mall close by. It's very peaceful and I really liked that.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
Everyone has their own thing however we don't come together and hang out from time to time. We also would do school things like trips to the movies or outlet mall. We also would go to theme parks and the zoo. My campus life was fun

Middlesex is probably the boarding school that is far ahead in terms of student body diversity, and I mean that in a very good way. Between geographical and socioeconomic diversity, you really learn a ton. . .
