Making Headlines: An Update from the College Office

The College Office enjoyed meeting with many families over the course of Parents' Weekend. We gave short class-specific presentations to senior parents, junior parents, and freshmen and sophomore parents. 

For freshmen and sophomore parents who missed the presentation and are curious about the content covered, please visit our Mailings page to view a summary. For senior and junior parents, all relevant information is also posted on the Mailings page and you should feel free to communicate directly with your child's college counselor with any questions.

  • From the Director of Multicultural & Community Development, Pascale Musto: This fall the Middlesex community service program continues partnering with Heading Home, a Boston-based nonprofit that moves homeless families into permanent housing through a program called Up-and-Out moves.  Middlesex volunteers collect furniture and other home goods, and then will move them into the family's new home.  On move-in day, after the group has finished setting up the apartment, the family arrives, and the Middlesex volunteers have a chance to greet them as they walk into their new home for the first time.  It is a rewarding experience for all.  You can get involved and support this effort by clicking here to access the family’s Amazon gift registry and select items to outfit their new home.  The items will be shipped to Middlesex and then assembled at the home on November 4th.  Thank you in advance to all the Middlesex families who have and will support this worthy cause!

  • On October 26th, Middlesex will be offering optional cardiac screenings for our students. The screenings are in conjunction with Mass Heartbeat and will take just five minutes.
