Coverage of Root ’12 story moved to separate page

On March 18th, during a semester studying in Syria, Middlebury student Pahtik (“Tik”) Root went missing. He is likely being held by Syrian authorities after attending a protest in Damascus.

As we added more and more updates to our original post on the subject, and as we published other related posts, we decided the best way to keep all the information organized and accessible would be to add a new page within MiddBlog.

The new tab at the top of the homepage contains:

  • Links to our posts
  • Links to other news coverage
  • Official College statements
  • Other related links

We will update the page as needed.  If you have a suggestion for something to add to the page, please comment on it and let us know. We hope to hear good news.
