“From the Archives” is an opportunity for various writers to visit the Middlebury Special Collections and write about a different artifact each week. The Special Collections boasts hundreds of thousands of historic items, and through this column we encourage writers to explore not only the college’s history, but also the history of the world around us.
Last Thursday, we published what we expected to be one of our least controversial editorials of the semester: another opinion piece centered around work-life balance and managing the pressures of Middlebury’s busyness culture. We’ve opined on this topic before without inciting outrage — so we were surprised to receive a Letter to the Editor entitled “You can’t have your cake and eat it too” that criticized both this editorial and the Editorial Board that penned it.
Piper Boss ’23 was working at a carrel in Davis Family Library on Sunday night when she received a text from her friend, Molly Grazioso ’23.5, at 10:41 p.m.

This week we examined how faculty, staff and students are navigating the introduction of ChatGPT, an AI chatbot created by OpenAI and released to the public in November. The Campus also editorialized on campus policies surrounding the chatbot, but we’ve also been having conversations about our own internal expectations. Given the nature of our organization and ChatGPT’s writing capabilities, we want to clarify our guidelines for AI chatbot use in reporting and shed some light on our decision-making process.

Middlebury saw an uptick in its applicant pool this year, with 13,297 applications for the classes of 2027 and 2027.5. Nearly 12,000 prospective students applied during the regular decision round, and more than 1,300 applied in Early Decision rounds I and II.
The third party vendor AudienceView, which Middleury uses for event ticketing, experienced a nation-wide data breach and notified the school about it on Feb. 23, the college told the community on Sunday. Though administrators were initially told the breach had not impacted anyone affiliated with the college, they later began to receive reports from students that their credit card information appeared to have been stolen.

If you’ve read some of our recent editorials, you can probably tell that one of the things we talk about often in our Monday-night Editorial Board meetings is the importance of transparency. We’ve called for greater transparency across various areas of the college: an accessible breakdown of the way Middlebury distributes its funds as tuition continues to rise, more insight into student organization funding and more information about what to expect during the fraught housing draws of the past few years.
Update 01/05/2023: According to Blaise Siefer ’23.5 and Marco Fengler ’23.5, last year’s men’s team co-presidents, the men’s team paid out of pocket for jerseys. The SGA Finance Committee approves budget lines for jerseys on a case by case basis.
Dear Middlebury community,
Raymond Diaz ’23 won the Student Government Association (SGA) presidential election on Tuesday, April 19 with 435 votes — 56.1% of the 775 total ballots cast. His opponent, current Junior Senator Aubrianna Wilson ’23, received 43.9% of the vote.

In January 2019, we published our first staff issue. It detailed the impact of workforce planning — a concerted administrative effort to reduce employee compensation costs by 10% — on the staff of the college. Three years (and one global pandemic) later, we again find ourselves in a critical time to better understand the experiences of Middlebury staff.
