Quidditch in College

Q: What makes high school seniors want to apply to Middlebury College?

A: Quidditch. You know, like in Harry Potter.

The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) picked up on our Middlebury College Quidditch World Cup held a few weeks ago. Nothing is quite as enticing as spending a Sunday afternoon running around on brooms chasing a cross-country runner clad in yellow shorts and a jersey. No really, it is a sight to behold. And Middlebury could not pay for better publicity. This will quickly appear in Middlebury promotion material next year.
