Bursting at the seams, Middlebury College offers students $10,000 to take time off

The unprecedented offer is meant to alleviate a stark increase in enrollment. The college typically has 2,500 students, but its student body jumped to 2,858 in fall 2021 and was 2,773 in fall 2022. This fall, it’s expected to potentially be as high as 2,845.
