Point-five!

Hey y'all. What's going on? My name is Maeve and I am a member of the Middlebury College class of 2009.5. You're probably all like, what is UP with this point-five business? Is she some sort of half person? No fools! In fact, it refers to this wicked cool program Middlebury offers known as the "Feb" program.

You see, the college allows a certain number of incoming freshman to defer their first semester to work, study abroad, save polar bears, cure cancer, etc. This means that each February a group of wide-eyed, overzealous 18-year olds enter the community just after an equal (or so) amount of 23-year olds, feeling way too old to still be in college, finally graduate. The thing is, many "febs" are just so excited to finally be in college that they — I guess, "we" — are known to try to be involved in EVERYTHING. It's pretty adorable, but at times a bit overwhelming. Spend a day in Middlebury, and you're guaranteed to hear the phrase "fucking feb" at least once...
