Tenable. Gourmand. Neophyte. Truant. Just a few words a Middlesex student can define and use in a sentence, thanks to the infamous Words Book. However, a group of Marines is well versed in the world of Words words as well, thanks to 2nd Lt. Barrett Moorhouse, a 2008 graduate of Middlesex. A short time ago, Barrett asked Middlesex to send along the book in an effort to teach his Marines the words he was tested on throughout his high school career. Not only would it be beneficial to the young...

The Holiday Concert is the School's annual celebration of the winter holidays in music.  Over the years, these concerts have presented a wide array of musical styles, from Renaissance motets to Duke Ellington.  The 2015 concert featured Joseph Haydn's Missa Brevis Sancti Joannis de Deo "Kleine Orgelsolomesse", otherwise known as "The Little Organ Solo Mass."  Missa brevia is Latin for "short mass."  This short mass uses the same text as a regular mass, but completes it in half the time.  To...

Parisa '12 shares her 2015 summer internship experience: I sometimes wonder how things might have been different if I had never had that conversation with one of my mentors, Dr. Joseph Burdo of the Boston College biology department. I told him about my previous summer doing benchwork research at BU Medical Center. It was an extremely rewarding and valuable experience and I was fortunate enough to be given great mentors, but I also learned that that kind of work might not be something that...

Westley '13 shares his 2015 summer internship experience: I wanted to start off by once again thanking you for your generous donation. Your donation allowed me to work at the New York Housing Preservation Department (HPD) where I gained valuable real world engineering experience and made vital connections with many of my superiors. At the start of my internship at HPD, my main focus was learning how to read the many different engineering drawings that came through our office. This understanding...

Natalie ‘13 reports on her 2015 summer experience. When I got off the plane in Buenos Aires this past summer, I was alone in a completely foreign country, without family or friends. My two month adventure in Argentina was about to begin, but I didn't know what to expect. The company I had decided to work at was called SoulFire, a digital communication agency that specializes in web development and marketing. Since it was fairly small and still growing, I got to work closely with people from...

            The dearest and most well known tradition that Middlesex possesses is the plaque making tradition. When reflecting on their plaques, alumni of all ages are able to reminisce about not only the personal meaning of their plaques, but also their time spent at Middlesex. Joe Watkins ’71 was kind enough to share his thoughts on what his plaque meant to him and how it embodied a message that he wished to last for generations. Mr. Watkins knew that the longevity of his plaque’s message was...

Olivia '13 reports on her 2015 summer internship experience. My internship at Christie’s was an invaluable experience to me, though perhaps not in the exact way I expected to be. As the daughter of an antiques dealer, I have grown up with auction houses like Sotheby’s and Christie’s often floating around dinner table conversation, and I have over the years romanticized working at such large and successful art-related companies. Jobs at auction houses are famously perceived as glamorous, as...

Atiya '12 reports on her 2015 summer internship experience. First and foremost I would like to thank the 2015 Middlesex Alumni Association Internship Stipend Committee for granting me a stipend for the summer of 2015. I used my stipend this summer to buy my monthly metro card. Though almost trivial sounding, these metro cards enabled me to not only work an internship at Jax Media, but also enabled me to work at a high end restaurant. Without this stipend and the ability to work all over the...
